Journal

I have a wig!! (Posted 24th August 2010)

Here is my wig! So i finally did it.I used a black pipe cleaner to make the flick trying to get it in the right shape is hard. But keeping it in place only takes threading it through the bottom of thee wig. Pretty simple. Stays in place most of the time and its real cheap. So happy it worked out!

its a COAT (Posted 22nd August 2010)

yes so i have the body of the long white coat and the sleeves! I did them last night they were a huge pain in the ass! There long so i was afraid i didn't have enough material luckily i did. Its going really well. I'vve hemmed the back collar and down the left side so it sticks out slightly and now its looking really great! haven't started the blue bit yet gonna start then when i properly finished the white one. I still got sow the left sleeve into place or its gonna fall off haha.

WORK BEEN DONE (Posted 19th August 2010)

Yes so i finally got started on the long undercoat. I gave up on the pattern and wrapped the big sheet of white material around me.Then i cut out holes for sleeves. Making the sleeves later and its basically a big nighty. but its being covered witht he blue overcoat so its ok. Got alot more work to be doing so that will do for now ^_^

a little update (Posted 16th August 2010)

well got about 2 months left to get this done. I got a lot of white material to make the bottom bit and i have a spare dressing gown from my aunt, its got like asian style dragon pattern on it and i think it can work make it that little bit different. I have the cut the sleeves off it still.

I got patterns to make the shirt underneath hoever i can't use patterns so i am totally confused on what to do haha nothings been made but everything is nearly bought. One step at a time right?

oh and i got the flick to work! I used black pip cleaner and attached it to my wig its awsome couldn't have hoped for anything better.

Well starting (Posted 5th August 2010)

First time i've done a journal for a costume. Well soon i should be starting. But you know i'm trying to get my head around making my own clothes. I've only ever made a skirt so this is going to be a BIG challenge for me. Though the clothes are flowy so it shouldn't be too difficult. I can just make it too big for me haha

Well today i'm ordering my wig off ebay, its cheap only 3 pound! Yes that does mean its not highest quality but i'm strained on money at the moment. So ye not much to say, so looking forward to October, hopefully i'll put some pictures up of my wig. I had an idea to use a pipe cleaner for the flick, might work might not we'll see.
