From the front page :)

Crown finished (Posted 2nd March 2012)

The crown is officially finished! I've painted it, varnished it and added the details with glitter and glitter glue. It's sparkly!

I've also made the fringe on the wig, where it seperates, then as a final measure I've glued hair grips to the inside of the crown, it keeps it on my head so it won't fall off and break! wheeee :D

Will take a pic sometime next week once I've got some lipstick in the right shade I want for a makeup test!

Officially in progress! (Posted 21st January 2012)

I've bought Janis's wig, so she is now in progress! I have a potential pattern to mod for her dress and I've been researching different materials to use for the crown/belt :) The chunky bracelets I'm thinking of using pringle tubes cut up and then smoothed over with an air dough...the belt will be a material base with the different squares seperate from each other, as the refs give that feel that they aren't connected completely. I'll be using a pink crepe that I still need to buy but I'll do that as soon as I decide on what other fabric to get for my other cosplays :)
