Description
Kneesocks is so awesome, so I've decided to add her to my Genderbent collection. I actually love Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt too much!

I'm modifying it a little from the fan-art and making shorts instead. Plus I don't really like trousers. I will test it out anyway :)

Wearing this on the SATURDAY of MCM expo for definite.

*after expo edit* this only thing I regret is not painting up my wrists/arms properly! you can see I did such a shitty job on that ;-; boo!

Wearing this again for Hyper Japan 2012 [friday] ^-^

Demon ears (Posted 20th September 2011)

I got some demon ears today and painted them red, just to add a bit more detail to the costume :) I'm actually so excited for this! <3

Yay :) (Posted 13th September 2011)

Everything is done!
I just need to decide whether I want to make devil wings or not...Hmmm..!

ALMOST done :) (Posted 3rd September 2011)

all thats left is to;
modify glasses
find a suitable belt ¬_¬
and perhaps make some devil wings?
and maybe make some pointy ears...
but mostly it is done woohoo!

Scythes - Almost done (Posted 29th August 2011)

For the base parts of the scythes I cut the shapes out of relatively light plywood and then sanded all the edges and points, for a nice smooth finish.
I then painted the base with 4 coats of Royal Gold paint on either side; to give them a nice glossy and even cover.
I then had to trace out all of the edges carefully with a measuring tape in order to ensure that the black edge was consistent and straight all the way around and wouldn't be all wobbly. Painted that with 3 coats of dark black.
The handles have been made out of quite thick (but light) wooden poles, sanded the top off, and cut a slit in, so that I can fit the head base into it, and then screw it in either side
:DDD

:D (Posted 25th August 2011)

finally finished blazer!

Today (Posted 25th August 2011)

I got hold of some faux black leather, so I shall be making the arm-band :) *dances*

Blazer (Posted 24th August 2011)

I have almost finished the blazer - used brown leather for the cuffs and the lapels on the blazer, and I am about to sew 4 large buttons onto the front! Photo will follow shortly ^_^
