That was a close one... (Posted 6th April 2011)
I completed this costume just in time for Kita! Boy that was close, and of course i quickly found a few faults in my work. Firstly the top was too loose (so kept sliding down...I didn't throw my shoulders back and bust forward enough hehehe) And my wig annoyed me, as I didn't get time to add any extra wefts to the sides to cover my hairline and ear joins.
Time to Accesorize! (Posted 22nd March 2011)
With 10 days left until Kitacon, I've given myself a kick up the butt and so far this week has got off to a good start. Boots are finally done and dusted; they're probably the worst shoes I've ever worked on but at least they're complete with only slight damage to my fingers.
I have reached the point where i can't keep putting off the back skirt piece and her antennae/hair extensions; i have 'cleverly' left the most difficult things til last. I will be really happy if i can get the skirt done this week..but we'll have to wait and see. So I need to get into super speed mode, concentrate and win this cosplay battle in the spirit of Brave Vesperia!!
I wish mine could bounce.... (Posted 14th March 2011)
A quick photo of Judith's top, which i'm pleased to have finished...but i';m not too happy with the outcome. I struggled so much with that pattern, the thin fabric really didn't help and i've got a nasty join here and there on the pattern. I don't know why i managed to make the pattern take up so much of the top, as it really shouldn't. I might alter it slightly at the front.
One small victory!! (Posted 13th March 2011)
I never thought i'd say that my wig is finally taking shape! The bun has been made and is now attached, even though its a bit messy and needs a bit of extra wig wefts here and there. Thank god i had Kukkii-san's high ponytail tutorial to somewhat follow. Though I very rarely follow tuts exactly, so i've ended up with a few mistakes here and there. Overall i'm pretty pleased with this being my first stub and bun combo.
Wig Wars! (Posted 21st February 2011)
Wigs are a bit of an issue for me, I always choose characters with either ridiculously long hair, or ones with awkward updos....Judith is no exception, and been nothing but trouble.
Got a long way to go.... (Posted 8th February 2011)
Well i have been a busy bee these past few weeks, my judy wig almost died, and went from looking like a rockstar to a monster, but hopefully I have managed to save it. I basically have to start over with the stubbing, so it wont be finished for sometime yet.
I wanna be a rockstar! (Posted 21st January 2011)
This week has been fairly productive for me, but i'm still going at a slow pace, I can't seem to get into full speed overdrive with my costumes at the moment. Judy's jacket is still in progress and have found out I offically hate collars! ~shakes fist~ to keep me sane i moved onto to working on her bra-like top, but thats' not looking exciting as of yet. I've been swaying to and from this costume and my Seung Mina one, and I find that it keeps me going, as when i get stuck with one, i always have the other to cheer me on!
Right! Wish me luck with this devil of a wig! Thank god I've only got one wig to work on this time.
Slow and steady wins the race......I hope (Posted 14th January 2011)
Right! this week i finally got into action with my cosplays and its made me realise how slow i work lol
