Description
Haha ok so I caved and started watching Gundam. Second times a charm right? ;) I have to admit to finding the series pretty good, but I haven't finished yet so we'll have to wait and see what the final verdict will be. xD

But none the less, how can I not want to cosplay Haman? She's fricking awesome. Plus I just really wanna make that wig. :P Dunno when this'll be done, whenever I end up finishing it. ^^

(Edit) 1 March - Well this seems to be going ahead! Yaaay, excited! Me and Chevi are gonna be bootiful pink-haired ladies. ♥ I wavered back and forward for a long time over which fabric would be most suitable for Haman, but ended up with some nice black velvet, the sheen felt right for her. ^_^

EDIT 2011-04-11: Wig was too purple, badly styled, all my fault. Need to fix it a bit, then take some more photos, but I'm putting this up as finished because I say so! xD I got the official "you look great" from the biggest Gundam fanboy I know, so I couldn't have done too bad of a job on it. xD

That wig is fantastic. How did you get the volume? Is it more than one wig. The fabric for the cape/dress thing is gorgeous. It looks velvety and rich.

Thank you! It's only one wig, but a very thick one. :) It's got quite a lot of crimping and back-combing in there, and the dress is made out of black velvet. :)

Looking good! How'd you get your eyebrows to match the wig so perfectly?

Thanks! I just happened to have an eyeshadow that was the right colour! It was my first attempt at coloring my eyebrows with a crazy colour, and because I have some pretty damn coarse eyebrows I was worried it would look without using latex but it was fine! ^^ Just thru on some foundation over them, then brushed on eyeshadow. ^^;

Wig-progress! (Posted 18th January 2012)

Finally getting round to fixing the wig... Still needs a lot work, but I'm getting there! Having a lot of fun with the colouring and styling, even tried crimping to get the extra poof! Love that Ardas wig are so heat-resistent. ♥ Still can't quite believe I left my hotel-room with the the original style, it looks horrendous! XD Oh well, new style isn't done the night before the con with kitchen sheers, you learn something new every day! :P
