|<< She's none too pretty or too nice, but; The Rosenkreuz are pretty b a d a s s , and Helga has a wicked look I just hhhhhaaadddddd to do !!|
I think the wig will kill me x__X!!
09.04/10 - As suspected, the wig IS killing and causing me more hassle than I can manage between now and May expo!! I am now going to my original plan of doing Noelle....and keeping Helga for another time :D!!
I MUST do a Rosenkreuz member at some point in my life though so, I'm sure I'll be working on her again soon.....
I've already bought half the material for it afterall D; !!
Back on Helga, I swear I must have cosplay ADHD >> Thew wig is still a pain but I'm working on it anyway!! Doing the easy part first....ie the skirt and the wand - horrible difficult things will come later :D
Astha is my main priority TB wise atm, Helga will have to wait- because her jacket is a bitch to make.

Wig (Posted 12th June 2010)
I'm still being lazy with photos, I will have photos when I can be bothered, I only have the skirt so far anyway haha!! ANNNYYYWAAAYYY The wig, I actually only bought a cheapy from one of the ebay sellers - for fear of buying an expensive wig and failing!! My logic being that if it succeeds, HURRAH it won't have cost me a lot, and if I fail, I can buy a better wig next time and learn from my mistakes :'D !! I think the wig color is accurate enough, it very looong, but quite thin....Though this doesn't matter too much as I'll be hacking the crap out of it anyway. Yes, due to lack of time before Amecon and my complete inexperience at styling anything hair/wig related I've opted for the simpler option. Ie I won't be busting my ass adding wefts and attempting to do proper partings ...noooooo , none of that !! My plan is to cuuuuutttt the wig shooorrrt and then used the bits of hair to wrap around polystyrene rings which I will then attach/sew back onto the wig!! :/ Does that sound retarded ? I'm under the impression it might work xD Only time will tell!! I'll be posting pics of my horrible progress!!!
The sort of start but not really... (Posted 5th May 2010)
I've procrastinated on this so long I'm amazed I've gotten anything done!! But I HAVE - the skirt !! Which was the easiet part of the entire thing, I'm sure of it! It can only get more painful from here!! Couldn't get bias thick enough, nor could I bo bothered to make my own - so I sewed two piece of silver bias together to get the thickness I wanted. Uniform fabric is made from some thick, black cotton material of which the name escapes me! Huzzah for skirt completion! Pics up when camera lives - only 15725425745452 million more items to do :'D!!
