Description
Fuu! In a pretty kimono, so happy :) Might see about making her wee squirrel hehe

-------
So I decided to buy the outfit, as I thought I wouldn't be able to make it, why did I do this again!
But it's getting there now :)

-------
So now it's come to a time when I can wear her, but I hate it so much! I feel so uncomfortable in it :( I don't look like Fuu, I look like fat Fuu :(

You so have to wear Fuu and get photos with my Faye one day! As Champloo and Bebop were made by the same people. :D

And we can find a Mugen and a Spike. xD

Kimono (Posted 24th March 2012)

So I was naughty and bought this last year, its massive on me! So I need to take it in a bit some time. Or just remake it. And here you see the sleeves, I bloody hate those things! And it reminded me why I want to make it! They are awful :( And I hate those flowers. Must repaint sometime!

Wig testing (Posted 24th March 2012)

As you can see, dats mah wig! It's so pretty, but a tad small for my head :(
I need to remake the hairsticks, thinking of using knitting needles for it, way stronger than my carved chopsticks :P

GOT A WIG! (Posted 7th March 2012)

Excitement! Thinking that this will be brilliant for Dee-con afterparty.

Hoping it will be alreet to style!

What needs to be done! (Posted 28th December 2011)

After checking this over, and noticing that alot needs to be redone.
Paint the flowers
Pick the sleeves off, remake them in the correct style
Hair sticks
Varnish the tanto.
Get a wig!

Tanto nearly done! (Posted 8th April 2011)

Painted the tanto white, then pink, then added detail. Made the accessories with polymer clay.

Tanto (Posted 2nd March 2011)

Already have a tanto, painted pink, created the extra's with fimo. Glue it on. Just got to find some string (?) and tie on the dangly bit yay!
