Interesting fact: the flowers are a euphemism for the acid that was thrown on kids' faces in the circus as pumnishment. OMG FACTS

And, I reaaaaally can't wait to see this! ^^

Shoe progress~ (Posted 11th October 2010)

Started on the shoes today. I bought a plain pair of black heels from new look (£7 HELL YEAH <3) and using masking tape just kept going around and around to make the curl. Now i need to get some black spray paint to coat it but for now this will do.

FLower band (Posted 1st October 2010)

Head flowers progress. Added some more flowers need to dirty it up now and add the real flowers a couple of days before expo.

Progress (Posted 1st October 2010)

God i swear i need to remember to keep progress on here!
The top was completed ages ago i used the same shirt pattern as i did for meiko (default) but i modified the sleaves.
I'm borrowing the tights of juliette and i had the wig already.
I started on the flower band i used a thin alice band and some clingfoil and i then used a bunch of fake flowers i got from poundland and cut them of the stems ,i had to paint a few of them blue too, and then stuck them on with the glue gun. However it looks far too...happy. So i'm gonna try making it a bit muddy and tea stain it.
The ruff is now done. I used interfacing and ironed it onto the fabric then using the glue gun i glued it onto a strip of fabric which would fit around my neck however the gaps were far too big and it was far too wide so i had to unglue it all and cut it in half and glued the two parts together i then basically folded it over and over to make that kinda springy looking thing people make outta paper and then attached some velcro to the end so i could fit around my neck and keep it in place. However i think it looks too thin so i might remake it if i have enough time.
