Description
Ooooft Baralai 8D

ZOMGWTFBBQ!?!? Showcased on Showcased 30th April 2011! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOUUUUUU! <3 <3

Part of a duo with the amazing MikeJenks as Gippal 8D OOOFT.

I've wanted to do Baralai for so long, it's a dream come true to finally get the chance ^_^

The coat is made from green duck cloth that I ordered from here: http://www.duckcloth.com.au/item.php?item_id=1163&category_id=160

The pants belong to my boyfriend Scott, and are rather heavily pinned to stop them falling off me xD The white shirt was one I owned already, I think from Primark or somewhere O.<

The rest of the materials are either pleather (the weird crotch bit and the arm strap) or cotton. Most of the symbols are drawn on. The hoops around the collar are curtain eyelets spray painted silver.

The red rope was bought from Ebay, along with the boots.

The wig is from Ebay too, and styled with Got2be Glued freeze spray. Let's hope it can withstand expo!

The staff is made from a broom handle, the circles from two needlepoint frames. Scott made the basic staff for me (talented boy, no? 8D) and I'm going to decorate it soon :3
