IF I can get a job and IF it pays well, I will seriously consider doing her for October. But they are very large ifs.

Journal

L'Cie Brand (Posted 23rd April 2012)

:D Just need to work on the edges and it'll do~~

Gloves (Posted 23rd April 2012)

One glove down another to go! Using white Leather paint. THIS STUFF IS AMAZING <3

Scarf (Posted 28th March 2012)

Is now dyed, made a little hiccup and didn't leave as much white as I had planned but never mind D:
Hopefully tomorrow it should be ready for me to do the tribal markings~~
Then I need to finish the pouch and start on the jacket and the actual costume is done, all that will be left will be the boomerang which my dad has said he'll happily help my with~

Bought (Posted 24th March 2012)

Have now bought everything for the costume! Only thing I have left to do, which I will buy with my April paypacket is the tattoo paper for the L'cie mark~~

Shorts 2 (Posted 18th March 2012)

Only have to add on the little strap things to the back and sew on the elastic bit on the bottom and they're finished! I'm buying a belt on friday along with a black shirt.
Going to start on the pouch tomorrow hopefully. Thank god I still have leather over from doing my Pirate costume.
Need to get some practice in at covering my tattoo now I have the makeup.
Saturday I am going on a material hunt across North Wales to find yellow material and bits for the jacket~ So hyped to get this finished!

Shorts (Posted 4th March 2012)

Being made :D Hope to have them done by tonight or tomorrow <3 <3
Nice to be able to sit and work on it actually

Material - 1 (Posted 2nd March 2012)

Material has arrived, as has the dye, for the shorts! Going to dye the material today and see how it goes. Went with linen because it has a similar look to the texture in the cg images of Hope.

Material (Posted 26th February 2012)

Bought some ribbed material for the shawl and also some white linen, which I'm going to dye when it arrives.
The linen is for the shorts which I have decided to tackle first and then hopefully the jacket will be with the next pay packet at the end of March.
Not left a cosplay this late before.
