buns and socks (Posted 25th April 2009)

omfg T_T I love my friend Amber I always get her to syle my wigs cause she may not know it but she is amazing!!! She makes mircales happen I swear I'm so lucky to have an awesome friend like her. She put the wig in the white buns and it looks fucking awesome! The back is a bit messy but the beautiful thing about cosplay is you can keep improving on it :D so it's okay if it's not perfect first time but bloody hell am I happy with it :D.

So happy as well because woot woot I finally got some dam bloody blue navy socks!!!! There not even plain one though they have embeded blue hearts on em but it is the only pair I have found so bloody far and it's okay cause Ming Ming as hearts don't she so it will do for now ^^

So I'm nearly finished not far to go now ^^. I won't be able to order brown contact lenses though for May Expo too late now but there is always next time ^^

microphone (Posted 14th April 2009)

Well I wasn't to brothered about having my beyblade microphone thing for expo as they don't make Ming Ming beybaldes and never did pfft, but! my friend Karen won a pink beyblade launcher in a bid on Ebay and has been kind enough to give it to me yay so my other friend amber is going to embed it into a microphone because she is a genius and I don't even know where to begin on making one of those so yay!

white material and yellow ribbon (Posted 9th April 2009)

I went and got 2 meters of white cotton and yellow ribbon for my ming ming cosplay. All I have to do now is get some blue socks which I am gonna get with food shopping as Asda sales 2 pairs of navy blue socks for only £1.50 woot! Lol. Also need to get some black ribbon next time I go to town with money which will probably be in 2 weeks time as I can get it when I go to job centre next time. I’m gonna get spray paint when my friend orders the gloves cause I need them to match then I’m nearly done. Also saved a tiny ceral box from my be blade box woot! :3 My boyfriend also got paid so he is gonna save £50 of that for expo ^o^ yay I think it’s gonna work out ^_^

I'll put picture up later :)

gloves (Posted 30th March 2009)

So gonna try and get the gloves next gonna ask my friend if she can buy them for me as she did say she would but I suppose if she can't I'll just ask her how much they are :).

After that I'll work on getting the ribbon and fabric for the buns. That shouldn't be so bad because it's quite cheap and I can get it from a local shop when I move :).

It's not the price that is so bad tbh it's just the ammount of little things to detail. Heck if I can I'll get spray tan on myself to make me seem more tanned like the chracter. It is not a racist thing it's just I am incredably pale and would stick out like anything lol. Plus it is in May if I can go and in sumer it's worse lol

Got shoes and dress (Posted 27th March 2009)

Okay so I got my shoes last week so I gotta edit them and spray paint them pink :)

I just ordered my dress as well. It looks perfect at the front but at the back it's a bit low and has a gold chain so I'm gonna cut them gold chain off and see about if I can edit them back I can bring the back up more :).

Got my wig (Posted 15th February 2009)

well at least I have something now I have got the wig. Going to style the wig just before expo though I don't want it getting ruined.

also mum said she is going to get the dress next month which is awesome and I will post pictures up of the wig and pink material I got for dress tomorrow :3
