Costume Information

Cost : A lot!
Time Taken : 20 +

I loved the look of this Zanpakuto!
Worn for Auchi, and it was well recieved! It wasn't as hard to wear this as I thought. Although, trying to dance in it was difficult. I do not advise wearing this to dance in.

Going to re-do my wig to see if I can finally make those dang drill curls!
Going to paint the skull and swords BACK on, yes I did it, then washed it to early :(

Shopping List

Purple cotton£6.00To Buy


Eye patch (Posted 16th February 2012)

Just been fixing my eye patch, got new chain attached. And by looking at the new reference pictures, I see she only has the chain attached to 2 bits, and it goes around her head. So I wont be attaching it to the wig this time :( So I attached a clasp to the chain :D

Painting and brushing and crying and painting and brushing (Posted 12th February 2012)

The back design! Well, this took fucking ages! I was originally using the faint leftover design from the first time, then realised how bad it looked, until I came across some amazing reference pictures and managed to make templates, and now it looks amazing! Just need to neaten up the edges.
Bought a new wig last year for Princess Luna, and from the above mentioned references, I've found out that her hair isn't cut in a short bob, but actually pulled up into those pigtails, not sure it this is bad or good right now! I suppose it saves on cutting it :/

Sleeve ruffle (Posted 26th January 2012)

SO I've been redoing the sleeve ruffle thing, as I didn't like the way it was last time. But I think the problem is that I've picked out a lightweight fabric, and it just doesn't sit right and I just done have enough money to buy new fabric :(
Anyway, this is just the fabric pinned in place so far, haven't ironed it yet, so it might look better after that.

Please ignore the alcohol, it's not all mine....I swear!

What needs done! (Posted 29th November 2011)

So my headpiece broke :( So I think I'm going to just remake it!, I now have geta, yas! paint the back. sort out the collar bit.
