|Cost :||about £70|
|Time Taken :||a week ._.|
|I've actually owned the clothing/patheticamountofmaterial for this costume for nearly a year, I just got massively put off when I spend a lot of money ordering the boots to be commissioned and they never turned up. (I went out of my way to get a cuddly prinny and everything :( )|
So I improvised and made the boots myself by using silver spray paint on plain base boots, some old belts/buckles, and painting the grinning mouth on. Also studs for the eyes, painted white.
I restyled an old red wig I had laying around, and made a new tail using a hosepipe, craft foam, solder and a lot of red paint...
The wings needed adjusting but we managed to fix them. The skirt also needed turning up and the straps of the top needed tightening. (Seriously...ask for measurements and then get them all wrong? XD ) Otherwise, all good.
I'll now be able to to wear this to the MCM Expo on Sunday :)
I will also take it to Ayacon this year, and hopefully by then will be able to make the Elder Spear.
