|Time Taken :||on and off for about 2 months|
I love this game too much <3
Finally found a character I <3 to play, as much as I love Caitlyn, I think I prefer Morgana :3 (even if her skirt weighs her down so much she walks slower XD)
Need to ab up my tummy for this, but it covers my thighs which is awesome XD I chose this skin: A) IT'S SO PRETTY <3 B) her default skin is nice but her skirt is made of leather and I'm not rich :P
This one looks do-able...vaguely. Her wings will be interesting..especially as her boob support doesn't have a back!! O_O I'll do it so that it does have a back as I don't think I'll be able to grow wings in time for expo and I'll need something to clip them to O_O They'll also have to be Xtremely light weigh so that'll be fun :3

Resin Gems :D (Posted 30th April 2013)
I commissioned the gems off someone as I had previously just used some left over foam from the wings last time as I ran out of time. I plan to stick these onto the skirt and will hopefully look snazzy :) I'm also in the process of repainting the skirt and adding on some 3D paint around the edges of the design to help it stand out.
Reworking! (Posted 12th April 2013)
I'm rewearing this for May Expo so I'm just re-doing a few aspects of it so it looks a bit fresher! This'll mainly mean me repainting the wings, remaking the arm bracers, and possibly making a new bra as well. I've commissioned a lovely lady in Poland to make the resin gems for her skirt which I'll just stick on once they arrive :) Hopefully it won't be cold!! :D
Wings! (Posted 24th October 2011)
Essentially finished my wings. All I need to do now is spray paint on the red, and attach them properly to my bra straps! repainting the cuffs and start painting the gold bits on skirt soon too >=< So many little details but at least the bulk of it is done now! XD *cho excited!*
Damned Boobs (Posted 27th September 2011)
Seriously. I could have got a much cheaper bra with the plastic straps included for like £3 if I didn't have such an awkward fricken bra size ¬¬ *mini rage*
On the plus side, I started on the wings this morning. The shape is holding well but the aluminium wire isn't holding the wings up and keep drooping so I've decided that I'll have to thread the bra strap through a gap in the wire to hold it in place. oh the complications. It couldn't just stay in one place could it. I decided to use the foam as a base instead of felt to keep costs and weight down. If it doesnt seem to work I'll buy the felt and do it that way but I thought I'd try this first seeing as I have like 10mtrs of the underlay foam :3
Update :3 (Posted 25th September 2011)
I've decided that all the layers of the skirt apart form the hoop and the base are going to be tucked in to avoid any extra zippers, poppers etc. It's easier for me to make that way as I FAIL at fasteners and it makes it alot easier for me to put it all on and take it all off. all the bits apart from teh top layer will be pinned into place to prevent it from escaping!!
Skirt still needs hemming cos i'm cho lazy XD It's totally gonna end up being a night before expo thing...
I did a zip and it works XD (Posted 24th July 2011)
i know this is really sad, but I've never sewn in a zip before. And yes, it is a bit of a mess (the stitching ><) but the zip itself works perfectly and it doesn't really matter if it IS a mess as it's all gonna be covered up by another 2/3 layers of fabric anyway so HUZZAH. Yeah.
in other news, still trying to find some gold faux leather stuff, it's proving pretty impossible, trying to work out what else i can use instead as i can't seem to find any which is <£10 p/m which is realllly OP for standard Faux Leatehr stuff, having bought some before, usually for like £4-£6 p/m i dont really wanna play the extra O_O
Mejik has started XD (Posted 9th July 2011)
Fabric arrived a few days ago, the taffeta is lovely, not quite as thick as i had hoped but it's still great and drapes really well. Both the red and the cream bits are made of taffeta. I bought some pattern paper to use as i hadn't made a skirt before. Essentially just pinned the paper to the hoop skirt and just cut them to size leaving extra room at the bottom for gathering the fabric :) was actually alot easier than i thought it would be XD and i still have about 3/4 of a metre leftover which is always a plus! When i saw how bit each pattern piece was I had a mini flail as I totally thought it wouldnt be big enough XD Will probs sew the gathered bits into place tomorrow on my day off then I can post a pic of it *hopefully!!*
FABRICZ (Posted 3rd July 2011)
ordering my fabric today hopefully ^_^ I decided upon taffeta because of it's prettyness when it's draped :) so hopefully it'll look nice ^_^ I'm using it for the red and the cream/white bits. Still not entirely sure about what to use for the gold :s my first thought was faux leather, but it's kinda pricey and it might be a bit heavy :s I need to think!
I have my hoop-laaas :D (Posted 16th June 2011)
Hoopskirt ftw ^^ very pleased with it, although storing it will be fun :P wheee! Need to tidy my sewing room so I can get started properly. I've bought some suade which I may use for this if I have enough or that it looks alright, if not then I'll get some velvet XD woop!
This project has started >:3 (Posted 12th June 2011)
Bought the wig and hoop skirt today :) Took AGES finding the right wig for her, they either had too much 'bang' or were wavy or curly or something. Well annoying!!
