I'm add-libbing this 'cause the original design is difficult to do in the time I have left D:
Still going to be basically the same, just the front will have more texture and layers.

hooves complete~ (Posted 25th October 2010)

I finished these a while back and only just got round to putting them up here, I've used wire mesh on wedge heels for a base, then built over them with Pva and newspaper, then finally adding a layer of Car-bondo and sanding for many MANY hours. The texture of them is still quite rough, but I think that adds to the effect, I then added fur around the top to finish. As these things are REALLY heavy if you see me wandering around with them in my hand, don't be surprised xDD
See photos for the picture of the hooves~

Dress redone (Posted 25th October 2010)

On a sewing day recently with Jo (dustee) we talked about how to make the skirt sit better over the underskirts. She came up with the idea that it was too fitted and that I should redo the skirt, taking into fact that I have around 5 days left to make this, I cut the bodice off the dress and Refitted it on me, Then with the cut off skirt and scrap left over,I re-made the skirt, I'm much happier with the way it sits on me now, aswell as the way it looks aesthetically. I know it's not incredibly acurate but I feel that with a video that changes the costume so quickly, I think that's okay ;D
I'm still awaiting the wig, kinda shitting myself about the fact it might not arrive on time, But i've got a Miku wig I can borrow if it doesn't arrive in time.
I Just need to add the main details now, like the cage and the gold bobbles, but I also need to paint the detail on the bodice as my fabric is satin, the fabric pen bleeds terribly whenever used on it.
Can't wait guys :DDD

Hooves. Contined xD (Posted 18th September 2010)

So, After talking to my dad about how to make the hooves, he decided to help me and take me to B&Q <3
I got all the things that I needed for these hooves, and spent around £45 on just that :| I started to make a base of these shoes with Wire mesh, (see pic xD) and i'm going to papier mache them and carbondo them tommrow morning.
I'm kinda proud of these xDD
Excuse the shitty quality of the picture i've only got my goddam awful webcam at the moment~

I feel like gaga in these shoes :')
