Sadface (Posted 4th November 2010)

Ok so, since I've been doing this properly I thought I'd finish off with a little recap and overview of how the costume actually went.
It's weird, I thought I'd be worried about my figure all day, but I didn't have time to worry about that because I was so drained from how badly everything was going. The tights were ripped, you could see the seams on the bloody things (though it wasn't as bad as I thought), I had to cut one of the legwarmers apart because it had broken so much, the other one was a nightmare by the end of the day and the shoecovers were also falling off eventually. I didn't bother with the makeup because I was stressed enough just getting to the point where I was IN the damn thing, which was kind of a pity.

In the end though, I had fun, and it didn't look too tragically bad, just a bit of a mess - I claim battle damage!

There's a lot I'd change if I ever do her again, but it could have been a lot worse than it actually was.

Sneaking on to update while Jen's not at her lappy, lol.
Just finished (literally just this second) doing the armwarmers and legwarmers, they're not great and the leg bits were nightmarish because the shoes were separate, it was all a bit odd and complicated and a fun experiment, made even worse by the fact that I couldn't actually manage to get hold of any matching lycra, I ended up using some ... well I'm not actually sure what fabric it is. But it sort of works.

At least it's all done and we can be on our way to expo this eventide, funtimes.

See you tomorrow expo-ers, fail!Psylocke can't wait XD

Little by little (Posted 20th October 2010)

so I tried out the makeup this morning, I was somewhat happy with how it turned out for a first try, though I need to work on making the lines more distinct, and try it out along with normal makeup, but all the foundation in the house has gone walkabout at the moment so I couldn't this time.

The wig arrived and I love it, though I'm a little uncertain about how accurate the front is and whether or not I should style it somewhat, but every picture I have makes her hair look different so I think I might just leave it as-is.

Still need to find some lycra that matches the shade of the leotard I have, but I'm going to look tomorrow because I have other fabric to buy, and also I'll be on the lookout for some seam-free tights, though I've found some online if I can't buy any in a shop.

Getting there!

Woo! (Posted 15th October 2010)

My leotard arrived this morning and the wig is in the post! Now I just need to hunt down some lycra that isn't obscenely expensive and maybe I'll be able to finish off the rest of it!

I think I'm just being lazy because then the hard work actually has to start.
Also need to locate some seamless tights - anybody got any bright ideas?

Still undecided if I'm going to do the makeup but I have red snazzaroo so I should be able to do it.

Psi-daggers? Maybe. Watch this space.
