It's getting there! (Posted 19th May 2010)
Soooo today I did quite a bit:
- finished the ribbony bits for the arm bracers (as in, attached them to the rings, painted and sealed)
And I'll probably do some more later tonight!
I'm actually really proud of the sewing on the cuffs (see image), I don't usually stay this neat XD
Progress (Posted 15th May 2010)
Woot, things are actually taking shape, finally >.>
So the collar part of the shirt was easy, I just butchered a smart Primark shirt and I'm adding bias to it tomorrow :D the little red tie is in the making as well, need to add elastic for the neck (little known trivia: Noel can't tie her own tie, so it's a slip-on/clip-on!) <-- ergo, perfectionism XD
Bah (Posted 4th May 2010)
So... there was the fabric dying setback. After taking it out of the basin and rinsing it and drying it and stuff it has gone like, cornflower blue (like the background of the CI banner) and it's all tye-dyed D: it's not the end of the world as I can make a nice dress or two with it, but a bit annoying that I have to buy a load of new fabric. Just ordered 3 meters of royal blue cotton jersey online so hopefully that'll arrive by the end of this week
In the meantime I've been working on Shenny's Jin, all the belt and jacket pieces have been cut out, tomorrow (after my uni hand-in) I begin sewing :D
Is it bad I'm more excited about making Jin than I am about making Noel?
Fuck... (Posted 1st May 2010)
Can someone please explain to me why the Dylon hand-dye called "Ocean Blue" has dyed my fucking fabric PURPLE?
Seriously, I'm so pissed off right now, that's 20 pounds worth of fabric completely ruined...
DYE (Posted 30th April 2010)
Yay started dying some of my fabric tonight :D
Wig :D (Posted 26th April 2010)
Yay just ordered my wig, I decided to go for a long one and actually tuck it under the cap like it's supposed to rather than get a short one and cheat :P
Also, it means I actually have a mid-length blonde wig for my Zelda/Samus/etc cosplays and stuff too :D
Awww I want it now...
