Now for the wand (Posted 4th August 2010)

So I started the wand on Friday, tricky business since Ive never made prop before! I started by getting florists foam and carving the basic shape with sand paper and a knife. Thenspray painted it white to seal it and stop it disintergrating on me. Then started paper mache'ing it. Ive sray painted the staff pink, cut out the wings and stuck the pieces together, and found and painted the eye gems. Now all thats left to do it glue the head and end to the staff, paper mache them to it, paint it, and stick on the eyes and wings! Simples!

Dress complete (Posted 28th July 2010)

Phew that was a marathon! The dress is finally done! Managed to do it in 3 days (working after i finished work) and i have to say i rather glad of it! All thats left to do is make the bows for the dress hat and gloves, style the wig, and maybe make a white underskirt to poof it out a bit, i dont know yet. I have also got to make the wand, i almost have all the bits for it but i cant find foam to make the head out of, which is worrying me, i dont know what else to use, and i dont want to use paper mache cuz thats so messy and rough, i just dont like using it.
