putting things off (Posted 26th March 2013)

Due to having my uni exams fast approaching ive pretty much put my lightning cosplay off, that and due to finance. But that doesn't stop me from working on the things i already have for this cosplay :)

Wig is styled! Though thinking about thinning out the curls a little.

fabric collection for this so far (Posted 23rd February 2012)

i have different shades of brown cotton + green as i found them in my room and am currently unsure what colour to use for lightnings skirt, dont really have to worry about this costume yet as not making it and till i finish Cloud, plan to wear this at Winter Memrobillia. A long project but i cant put this off any more i love this character.

The white fabric is possible coat/jacket fabric, not 100% sure i will use this fabric as its poly-cotton and a bit on the see-through side.

Red fabric for the cape, again poly-cotton but think its right for the job in this case :)
