The shoes and the wig look awesome so far! I can't wait to see the end result! I'm afraid it's not looking good for my Mana cosplay though, there's a lot of work to do to it and I just don't have the money to fix it up :(

@ Lolita Hime - Its made with my upholstery foam and the gold material sewn togther. (Gold material acts like tube and then I put the belt through the sewing machine to get the lines)

Cape And Shenti :D (Posted 3rd October 2010)

Today I worked with Lolita Hime...

The Puzzle! (Posted 28th September 2010)

Yay, finally after 3 days hard work, my puzzle is finished!

I started with a 10cm X 100cm X 5mm piece of balsa wood. I then cut 1 squre of 10 cm X 10cm and 4 equalateral triangles with sides of 10 cm. I then cut a curtaion rail hook in half for the loop ontop of the puzzle.

After cutting the shapes, I then sanded down the edges until they were at an angle I wanted, (I think the angle was around 30 degrees on the 'bottom' of each triangle and 45 degrees on the 'sides' I then held the pyramid together with pins and masking tape whilst used wood glue to glue the sides of the triangles together.

After the pyramid was glued I sanded it down again to fit onto the square I cut put before, making sure all of the edges were lined up. Before glueing the 'lid' onto the pryramid, I cut out a swquare of 9cm X 9 cm and wood glued that to the 10cm X 10cm square (smaller square ontop). I then proceded to screw the curtain hook cut in half to the 'lid'. Afterwards I used wood glue to glue the top onto the puzzle. I then sealed the balsa wood with PVA glue, so then it was ready to spray paint.

Whislt waiting for the puzzle to dry, I made the Eye of Horus out of blue-tac, yes blue-tac as I can't afford to buy polymer clay XD... it works the same.... ish. Once made, I spray painted the eye gold.

Once the puzzle was dry, I made the corner 'brackets' from craft foam cut at 45 degree angles ( this is very hard to do... especially woth a blunt craft knife DX). I then proceded to do the same for the tiny pyramid at the tip of the puzzle. I then hot glued the eye and the 'brackets'and tiny pyramid onto the puzzle.

Next, I spray painted the puzzle gold, and as I'm impatient... I sprayed the whole thing... I then had to run around my house to find something to suspend the dripping gold puzzle that I still had in my hand XD. I used a stick and a cardboard box.

Once dry, I then tied the brown shoe lace to the hook and it was done :D

Photo's coming sooon.

Shoes 8D (Posted 25th September 2010)

Yesturday after school I went shopping to get prop materials... and shoes :P which all togther cost a lot D:

But anyway, I edited my shoes! I started with plain white/cream flats and then hot glued a gold trim around the top of them. I then spray painted some craft foam gold, cut out 6 white rounded rectangles and hot glued them together, (3 on each shoe) and then hot glued the craft foam to the shoes :3

The photo shows the process and result!

I'm very happy with how they came out, but I have hot glue burns everywhere >.<

Wig Arrived Today (Posted 23rd September 2010)

At long last, my wig arrived from the US.. I bought it off someone on Cosplay.com and have only JUST recieved it.. after sending many messages XD but i love it XD

Now some photo taking and styling!!!!
