"Who'd want to ignite things one at a time?"

Love Chandra!

Because I am THAT much of a nerd.

I will do all the female planeswalkers

I have both versions up here, this one is easier and has less armour, so will probaly get done first...

To go with Anggul's Jace


Yay for blowing things up! =D

You're aware I absolutely have to cosplay Jace Beleren now right?

Needs more wigs! I will now be disappointed if each of your cosplays does not have more wigs than every single one before it. Put together. More wigs! Also you are crazy.

P.S. Needs more wigs.

so far (Posted 13th October 2011)

Still alot to do, But i have the basuc skirt shape, all lines just needs the ribbon and proper fastening. white top is done.
Just the little details to be added and the armour....oh joy

wig finished + test (Posted 13th October 2011)

So proud XDDD

It took a week, 3 wigs, fuck tons of red dye and half a bottle of vodka to make my bathroom not look like a murder scene, but I have made the most awesome wig ever. Don't think I suit her very much but dear god I am proud of this wig!!!!

Also orange contacts that are Uv sensitive! Could amke some cool photos!

wig 1 (Posted 8th October 2011)

Stage one of the epic fiery wig!
So I started with a lovely curly pale pink wig and have gradient dyed it to a fiery red. I think it fades nicely...might give it another touch up| near the tips.
My plan once its dry is to sew it to my rapidash wig so that it will fade to pink then red then have the yellow and orange underneath. Like her fiery mane D
Trust me to pick silly characters with silly hair on fire that is difficult to replicate xD

start (Posted 29th September 2011)

Going through a bit of a shitty time atm. Mostly my own heads fault...
Completly destroyed my creativity and will to do stuff.....but not for this Cosplay
Must be because magic is such a big part of my life and finally get to show it some love.:)

So rant over.]lmost finished the top. Got ahold of some lovely white leatherette for the top layer and sleeves.
Also got everything I need to do the wig!
Really excited for this!

Fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff!!! (Posted 27th July 2011)
