Ruby Moon - ideas and plans (Posted 10th July 2010)
Okie, well ruby moon is coming on ok, I have sewn a mock up of the cape (though still need to adjust the shape over the arms as I am not yet happy) and cut out the wings from foamboard (as I thought they had a chunky look to them from the anime thus I didnt want wire and fabric wings). Next steps are to work out how on earth to attach them (I will probably use wire and sew channels into my corset) and also to make the decorative panels (for which I now have bondaweb which I plan to use)
Though, do have to say Im worried about the corset... cos of my shape, I end up with a ... shelf... up the top which makes me feel really aukward and embarassed... I have been losing weight recently (9 pounds so far) and have lost weight off the waist and the hips... but not the top...DOH! Well, fingers croseed even more that I can get it looking better!
