Yingyang (Posted 8th June 2011)

After the blue clasps I did paint on the Ying Yang, drawing around a plate and bottle cap to get all the circles as round as possible ^^

Yellow Hemming (Posted 24th May 2011)

Today I wonderwebbed the yellow ribbon around the hem. I picked up some wide ribbon and folded it in half around the edges and glued it all down ^^ Took a long time but I am happy with the result ^^

Clasps (Posted 23rd May 2011)

I have now added the blue clasps, cut from blue cotton drill material, folded both ends in and wonder webbed to stop from fraying, the clasps are them hot glued on to secrure them.
I have also used velcro as the clasp holders ^^

Gold trimming (Posted 23rd May 2011)

Still have no sleeves but I now have hemmed the gold onto the material, I have sewn it on one side whilest wonder webbing the rest, just for the good look and the support. ;D

Collar addition (Posted 18th May 2011)

Well this has taken along while to sew on because I have been panicing about it turning out wrong ^^ But I have cut, folded and sewn on the collar, finally. Next is to cut some sleeves and sew those on as well ^^

Cut and Pinned (Posted 12th May 2011)

Yush, the material is pinned and now I will sew it all together and cut it down to size ^^ Ahhh I'm so happy, haven't made something from scratch in a loooong while O_O;;; But woopwoop, I like how it has turned out so far ^^

Robe Start! (Posted 11th May 2011)

I have finally started working on Ray's robe today. Yes finally. It is long over due and seriously a close call ^^;;
I have cut and pinned the material, I shall be sewing it tomorrow ^w^ Here is the material I am working with, 3 meters of cotton drill.

Material Arrival! (Posted 13th April 2011)

Yes I have bought the material for Ray and it has arrived, unfortunately I have made it my goal not to touch Ray until I have completed at least three pieces of my Uni work, then I will cut up the material, another three pieces, sewing, three piece then the rest xD The only way I can balance out my time T^T Horrible but nya. Best I can do.
Darkie came round to my Uni flat and we had a photo taking spree but I felt it unfair to post pictures of the shoot on here as the outfit is not my own creation so if you want to see them please go to my dA page. ^^
I have also bought my ribbon for the gold trimming, tis thick so good for hemmings ^^ Yush! I am in a go go ;D

Finished Wig (Posted 17th March 2011)

And after much hair spray, tantrums and pins, I have finished the wig, I am so over the moon and happy with it I cannot describe so I'll just show you.
Hope you like it!

Wig beginning (Posted 16th March 2011)

Okies soooo under the careful watch and help of my Kai, Darkie, I have began to style my wig. So far I think it is going pretty well. I have been given a diagram from Darkie of the improvements I could make and it ish gonna help meh big time!!

I am pretty impressed with what I have so far. I can cut wigs, eassyyyyy styling is tricky though ^^; The fringe is going well aswel ^^ I hope I can keep up the good work ^^

Layerrrrsssss like Onion! (Posted 11th March 2011)

Ok!!! So my Polystrene(sp?) head came today so I shoved the Ray wig right on it. I have started to cut the back of the wig into layers as about half way down the wig the hair get really long so instead of just putting it all into the pony tail... Might as well trim it down and use it for more spikes, here is the general idea in the pictures though I am still planning to take more off the bottom once I layer the back a little more ^^

Wefting (Posted 4th March 2011)

I have started to weft my wig. Yayy but it is taking ageeeeessssss I should hopefully have it finished by next week then I can start on the styling, which should be awesome fun. I cannot wait!! >D I shall put a picture up soon.

Hair Wrap (Posted 26th February 2011)

I did attempt the hair wrap and added hair to the bottom using some black furr, I kept looking at it and it looked absolutely terrible, sooooo! Because I am cutting up a black wig to weft into my Ray wig, the bottom came in handy to make the lovely hair poking out the bottom of the wrap with to me looks so much better than the first horrible attempt xD

Its on!!!! (Posted 1st February 2011)

This is a little late, but after searching long and hard, I have started to collect things for this Ray cosplay. As some of you know, my Kai has finished hers because she is impatient and realllllly wanted to complete him so, well done Darkie but wait for meeeeee.
I have just find my wig sitting on my bin outside and will begin wefting it as Darkie has suggested to meh ^^ Wish meh luck

ALSO DRIGER ARRIVED. I bought a Driger before but he was in terrible condition despite what was put on ebay so I emptied my pockets and bought another one ^^

Over and out! (Posted 11th November 2010)

Ok, so little update on the Ray cosplay!!
I am now looking into buying the materials for this outfit as I plan to start on this awesome male very soon! I have found afew things that will work perfectly for him, so Yay! And considering Darkie has started on Kai, I hope to start too! *dance flail*
