Description
I figured that I'll have a pair of fangs, a pair of red contacts and experience making a scythe...if I can ever figure out how to do the terrifying amount of detail on the ACTUAL costume, then we'll be ok ^_^'

EDIT: Progress is being made! Costume is sorted, wig is bought but needs styled and Clone is fantastically making the scythe for me! I really can't wait!

Really looking forward to seeing this. Especially the scythe. I had great fun (and trouble) making mine so I'm in awe of anyone building it. :D

Freeze-Hold is what I've been attacking it with for days LOL Have emptied a full can into it now...Loreal Elnett Extra Strength might have to take over...LOL

if you can try thinning the wig specially in the middle im making a huge sonic atm and in the middle of the spikes and the top to get the pointy look it just makes them alot lighter

Wig is looking awesome.

I still can't get over that I managed to do that in my own hair XD XD

Thanks hun, I think I've got it sorted now!

Flames: That sounds epic! I've kinda run out of time now, but what I've done is taken some wire (wire coat hangers FTW!) wrapped it around a headband, threaded it through the mesh cap and up into the hair. I then bought some spray-on UHU glue and went to town LOL

Sephi: I know! You're immense! I can't believe you managed that!

The Wig Styling Begins... (Posted 11th March 2010)

Ok, started styling the wig. It's currently hanging upside down being hairsprayed and back-combed into submission LOL I pinned the bangs down as I want to keep those still and have started styling! This could be a long process LOL
