Journal

Embroidery (Posted 19th February 2012)

Under estimated how long it would take and ended up still sewing at the expo for 2-3 hours. :|

Aim to revisit the embroidery, with more time and no deadline this time think i can neaten it up. :3

changes + SO CLOSE!! (Posted 15th February 2012)

-Changed the black under shorts, to a thicker fabric.
-Made the bag pouch for the belt.
-Restyling wig Friday as ran out of hair product.
-jacket made from scratch with alot of help from my nan
-new boots, luck struck when i was out shopping with my nan and found the perfect boots in a charity shop for a GREAT price :3
-Turtle neck top, again charity shop- edited.

Im so happy with this cosplay, but unsure how im going to put the design on the back :/

jacket nearly done!! (Posted 14th February 2012)

Jacket is nearly done, sewed pockets on for the first time ever and am sooo proud of this jacket, had help from my nan but none the less i love it. I think all the decorative stitches make it look like denim, which it isn't as it cotton XD

Major wig issues (Posted 12th February 2012)

Totaly restyling my wig :D

Realization (Posted 5th February 2012)

I have actualy got the wrong style top, need a turtle neck.
Not so happy with this cosplay, guess i fancy a detailed cosplay, but money makes it a bit hard. :/

Working on the jacket next week as i have time off, currently in the process of clearing my path of course work in hope of making it to university! So both time and money are a bit difficult.

WIP: nearly there (Posted 19th January 2012)

Just to do the jacket, not happy with my boots: they are cowboy boots but they are dark brown instead of a light brown. Hopeing to get a beter pair by expo, if not they will have to do. :/

Jacket (Posted 21st December 2011)

Going to have to substitute the denim jacket for one made from a different fabric, aiming to keep as much detail as possible. The red/maroon fabric i have chosen is the perfect colour. Also using jean buttons for detail. :D

Wig + Make Up (Posted 19th December 2011)

(In the pic i dont have my wig on: it was to show the make up a bit clearer)

Styled the wig and had to trim it :/
Still love it though.

Make up trial, think its perfect. :D

Change of plan... (Posted 15th December 2011)

the white shorts i was going to dye no longer fit me, i did have them for 2 years..and wore the hell outa them. XD

But i have replacement shorts, which are already the right colour :D
Thinking it may just be easier to buy a black top then dye it...
still looking for a denim jacket also. Hard to find in Winter. :/

WIG!! (Posted 12th December 2011)

I love it!! Going to have to cut some off as i didnt think it would be as long, (such a shame as its such a lovly wig), this is a photo of it unstyled. Just because i havent had a new wig in ages!! :3

Thank you to TrueStormCosplay for this earily christmas present!!

Early stages (Posted 3rd December 2011)

Have to dye the shorts, dye the top, maybe paint the boots (Can you paint plastic/leather cowboy boots?), get some leggings and edit them to knee lengh and get a denim jacket. :D

Oh and canvas belt and gun :3

GLOVES!! (Posted 29th November 2011)

IMAGE OF SEXY GLOVES!!
they may look a bit long finger wize, but they are mens gloves size small.
Hopefully i will have time to wear them in as they are a bit stiff. :D

PROGRESS!! (Posted 28th November 2011)

plan to start puting claire together soon to take a photo, hopeing to buy the dyes i need this week and keep on the hunt for a jenim jacket :D

My wig has arived i got a sneak preview: ITS PERFECT!! And i maybe able to use it for other cosplays as the colour suits some of my planned characters.DOUBLE WIN!

Ordered the gloves :3

what have i got? (Posted 21st November 2011)

I have the shorts and top (t-shirt) that both need to be dyed.
I also have some cowboy boots but mine are darker brown, unsure weather to leave mine as they are or try lightening them with either dye or paint.

*NEW*Ordered the gloves from Ebay
And my Wig is a christmas present from the other members of TrueStormCosplay! <3
