Costume Information

Okay I'll stop that.

Those horns proved to be the most annoying part, mostly with the paint and such. Also the tip chipped off while I was travelling back D:
And the glasses, too, they were evil.

*Hair: Wig arrived and styled. It's a little short, but I hope no one will be too mean about that :c
*Horns: Sort of foreign plastic-clay... stuff. Spray painted the different colours on.
*Shirt: Got c: used a transfer print and a black shirt.
*Trousers: Black jeans from New Look, of all places.
*Shoes: I bought some red leather shoes recently which look great c:
*Body paint: Snazaroo grey face paint. Have two little packs of it.
*Nails: Yellow nail varnish.
*Cane: Ordered from eBay. Unfortunately I'm not actually blind, so it wasn't VAT-exempt...
*Glasses: DONE. Oh my God, this hurt to make. It was so painful. And my dad was not pleased. But anyway. Red-tint perspex, cut out lenses, disassemble frameless glasses, put in with red lenses. Done. Except it was just so much more antagonising. ;A;

Thoughts. (Posted 28th January 2013)

I'm going to see if I can fix the glasses up again, fix my chipped horns, and wear this again for more photos.
I didn't get nearly enough of them, and I really was fond of this cosplay.

Recovering from Expo xD (Posted 1st November 2011)

Oh my God that was the most fantastic Expo I have been to. I was really in two minds about going to May, ever since the security was made so bonkers, and people were just generally unfriendly, I guess.
But now I am really invigorated to go to May Expo with high spirits! Thank you to everyone from the Homestuck fandom who made that Expo really special :D

Finished glasses + horns! (Posted 28th October 2011)

I was lent some spray paint, and I managed to complete the horns, so they look nice. Attached hair pins to them, and they lock into the wig mesh.
Finished glasses with my father, who cut out the lenses for me, and I glued, yes, glued, the lenses back into the glasses.

Transparent acrylic! (Posted 4th October 2011)

It arrived! And I unscrewed my frameless glasses using a small pair of pliers. Pic related, my cup of glasses parts. I need to cut out the lenses and drill holes in them, then put the glasses back together again. I'm making this happen!

Horns progress! (Posted 2nd October 2011)

Made out of this plasticy-clay, it was a little difficult to use, but I looked up some tutorials on how to make little devil horns and used the same kind of technique.
I just need to wait for them to dry, and I'll paint them!

Acrylic arrived! It's the wrong kind! (Posted 28th September 2011)

Oops, it's opaque! D:
Father says it'll probably be okay to practice the lens-cutting-out on, though, so nothing should go too wrong :c hopefully this shall ensure I won't make proper bad mistakes on the real thing.

Acrylic and Glasses Ordered! (Posted 25th September 2011)

After scouring eBay for a bit, I located some frameless glasses, which I ordered. I also found a sheet of red acrylic, 3mm thick, which got ordered too.
Acrylic estimated to arrive by the 30th September, and the glasses a little after that. I'm excited! :D
