Felicia Fail :P (Posted 1st June 2010)
I wore this on the Saturday of the expo but had to take it off by 2pm because it was SO painful. The heat the shoes cuased with alot of foam and fur made them rub my feet so badly. This whole outfit never came out as good as I planned, mainly because after I completed it I lost a tiny bit of weight, but enough to make it really awkward.
The leg cuffs at the top were always falling down from being to big and the hind legs slipped a little. The belly fur also failed cause I had some crap spirit gum and when it finally stuck it seeped through and left brown stains :P
The pants were also to big and on most photos you can see a baggy bit LOL
The wig also was crushed in the suitcase bla bla bla I could go on and on with the faults, main thing is I had fun (painful fun) walking around as a half naked cat!
Note To Self: (Posted 20th May 2010)
You are going to BURN.
Felicia is skimpy but she sure is hotttt, I mean heat way of course! The bits that are covered in fur just start cooking within 5 mins lol. BAD TIMES.
Lets hope there is a slight cool breeze at expo otherwise ill need a constant hand fan on me lol.
Nearly there (Posted 6th May 2010)
Really excited for May expo now, I've nearly finished Felicia, I just need to work on several bits, including the very bottom of the hind legs, the rodding in the tail, hand paws and sides of the furry pants.
The rod in the tail was weighing it down so much it was pulling the pants down *_* not good! so I'll cut in in half so Its half the weight :D
Looking forward to meetin so many people at Expo :D
Ears & Glitter (Posted 30th April 2010)
I finally got some new ears from Felicia, I didn't make them though, they were from America, but I do love them, dunno why I didnt make them, I just brought on impulse these amazing cute ears from Etsy. Good job not goin in the masquerade anymore :P
I also made all ofFelicia's claws glittery, It's really cute and glam xD
Im still really unsure about the felicia pants I've made they really are skimpy! I also need to remake her tail because its so fat its heavy and pulls the skimpy pants down LOL NOT GOOD
I also finally got a sewing machine so I sewed up Felicia's hind legs and now they are tight and fit alot better :D
Wig WIP (Posted 8th April 2010)
I tried backcombing this wig earlier and it failed badly. Therefore I cut some layers into the wig so they wouldnt be as heavy when it came to backcombing them again. However I got bored so I curled the wig, but as most heat resistant wigs they are also curl resistant so it came out as waves, which was good enough. I then used my fingers to break the waves up and tease them a little, once I had finally done the whole wig it was alot easier to poof up, I still havent tried backcombing it again, the poofyness you can see in the WIP pic is just from all the waves and finger teasing :D
I need to totally remake my ears though xD
Ohhh ps. there is a clip in my wig because I havent figured out how to make the fringe stay back yet so its just clipped back atm :D
Furry Pants (Posted 2nd April 2010)
I made Felicia's furry pants big to cover my dignity, but I thought meh I have nothing to lose so I've remade them into furry skimpy pants which are more accurate to felicias design. I just hope I dare wear them out in public at the expo & I dont get arrested for indecent exposure LOL
Hair Ribbon (Posted 25th March 2010)
I got my hair ribbon from the nearest market to me today, was only 2 pound :D Her hair ribbons are lighter in photos, but Felicia is a glam pussy cat so glitter suits her well :D
Wig (Posted 24th March 2010)
I got my wig and its gorgeous I love the colour and its so soft and lovely and heat resistant so its awesome, I had to pay extra customs charges though so it ended up being dear, but worth it :) Now for backcombing!
Pawz (Posted 2nd March 2010)
Yay I got my fur and my parcel tape patterns worked! The fur was quite a splash out for me, im quite tight but im soo glad I did spend the extra as its really nice fur :D
I furred the paws, was a little tricky gettig it around the heel and up the sides because the shoes are like little thin strappy cage shoes, but I did it I may put a few sly stitches in to help hold the fur up the sides :)
Furring feet (Posted 1st March 2010)
I dont know how fursuiters do it, just doing Felicias 2 feet is enough for me, so basically now my feet are all covered up in parcel tape so I can cut it off and make a pattern from it.. I get my fur tomorrow (hopefully) which im REALLY excited about :D
Wish me luck for the furring!
Claws/Fur (Posted 26th February 2010)
I finished my modelling clay claws, now i have to painstakingly wait for them to dry before painting them etc. Some reason this cla I brought isnt ovenbake, doh.
I also officially brought my fur I lost the bid i placed on some wicked fur in the last 5 seconds.... ¬¬
So I just got it on buy it now off ebay so I know i 100% have it!
