Sewing machine EPIC FAIL! (Posted 6th December 2010)
Okay, so my idea to get the sparkely fabric on via sewing machine had failed. Mainly cause it does not like white thread, five stitches in each time and the damn thing snaps. Can not afford new thread until after x.mas so I am now HAND SEWING the fabric for the wings onto the metal wire base... and it is taking forever! Granted the art of procrastination tis rampant within me BUT THAT IS NOT THE POINT! I really wanna get the wings done and dusted by new years so then I can focus on Ifrit and Alices dress as those will be the two that I will be having most problems with. Damn me and my unpracticle over active creative imagination. It gives me no sense of practicality when it comes to the construction methods of my Cosplays TT.TT
The Work Beings With The Wings (Posted 29th November 2010)
Well looks like my statement that I wouldn't be starting any Cosplay work til 2011 seems to be a complete lie XD I just couldn't help myself no sooner had I some free time upon my hands I started to rummage through my trunk of fabrics. Yet again to find that I had stashed away the perfect fabric for this project, much like I had found with the Black Waltz in the same trunk. So I pulled out the Fairy wings I had in storage and ripped off the old dusty fabric and pinned up the new shiney fabric I had. Perfect for that magical look and the white of a playing card. I can't get to the sewing machine til tomorrow so for the time being the fabric shall remain one sided and pinned til I can get it secure and then get the other side sorted so that way it'll look a lot more even. I cannot help myself I just get itchy thumbs and before I know it I've been swept away in another of my over flowing creative stupors XD Unable to stop myself until the projects completion.
