3rd November 2011: *moved from photos hobby horse progress

19th October 2011: *moved from photos* finished doll face

19th October 2011: *moved from photos* Wig

19th October 2011: *moved from photos* finished necklace

19th October 2011: *moved from photos* progress

17th October 2011: FUUUUUUUU--- This hobby horse is going out the window I swear!! I have spend all afternoon trying to paint this thing, and I still HATE it!! I never ever ever want to paint wood grain ever ever again!!! This has got so many coats of paint on it, it just kept going wrong, and now the paint is starting to crack!! FML!

13th October 2011: Gloves I Started the gloves today, They don't look too bad, I used white parts of my original Midna suit, it felt so good to cut it up!! Lol. I painted on the Green stripes, using acrylic paint. Last night I actually did the stripes with a marker pen and it went perfectly! But.. the pen ran out on the last stripe! OTL

Anyway, I like the colour I got mixing the paints, and.. is.. messy to say the least, but my excuse is.. that the stripes aren't supposed to be straight anyway!! Lol.

It also dawned on me today, Every single piece of fabric that has a pattern on it (apart from the tights) for this costume, has been hand painted, even down to the pockets! Sandysuicide is just amazing! And I still can't thank her enough, the effort she has put into creating this, and getting the fabrics and the look just right is amazing! and I love her to bits! What a star! <3

12th October 2011: More hobby horse progress! More Progress on the Hobby horse. The rope mane has been made out of model magic, and yeah.. that's totally a big yogurt pot at the bottom of the head, I know.. I'm such a pro!! Lol. Next is paining!

11th October 2011: Hobby Horse Just a quick photo to show the sort of size this is. I've just given it another coat of glue to make it hard, and hopefully tomorrow I can start molding bits onto it and then its just painting! :D

11th October 2011: Update!! Okay so..

Today I got my boots through.. FINALLY and.. they didn't fit u_u well, I say that, they fit my feet, actually they're a bit big, calves are ALSO too big *cries* stupid fat legs *mumble mumble* ANYWAY I have found a way around it as the boots are so nice, and I really can't afford to spend anymore money, I have cut them up!

They were knee high boots, and as my legs are so short, they were actually too long anyway and went above my knee, so they would have had to be changed whether they fit around my legs or not! So I put them on as much as I could, and it turns out it was only the top buckle section that didn't fit, so I marked dots all the way around and making sure to be careful with the zip, cut the whole top off, about 4 inches actually.

So now they only have 3 buckles, and don't go all the way up to my knees, but I must say.. it looks pretty good if I do say so myself, I just have to seal the top and paint over the scuffs(they were used when I bought them, £90 pair of boots for £30!) and that's it!

As for the dress, sandysuicide has finished it, and it was posted special delivery today, so I should have it quite soon!! I hope!! *touches wood* Then all that is left to do is finish the Hobby horse and make the gloves!!

So it's all coming together! Who would have that a couple of months ago this wasn't even planned! :D

24th September 2011: Doll Face!! Perfect doll face for Alice's bow!! I just need to paint it all... creepy XD

oh.. and also.. STILL NO BOOTS!!!! ヽ(≧Д≦)ノ

22nd September 2011: Update Well everything is going well!! Sandysuicide is working her ass off to get this done for me, and she is amazing!! I'm so happy with how it is looking!

I received the wig yesterday and it is PERFECT! Although I am a little confused... I ordered the wig, and the boots.. on the same day. How has the wig from China.. got here, and the boots.. from Newcastle have not!! What gives!!

Anyway, I will be ordering the hobby horse today so I can start customizing it, and I should have the necklace complete by this evening too.

Then all it is, is making the dolls head, doing the horse, and waiting! IM SO EXCITED ITS UNREAL!!!

18th September 2011: Apron moved from photos

18th September 2011: so far moved from photos

18th September 2011: Skirt More progreeeess!! eeeeeeeeeeeeeeep!! XD

16th September 2011: Collar Pink collar painted with the teal pattern :D

16th September 2011: More shirt progress *happy dance*

sandysuicide modelling the progress so far!!

15th September 2011: Shirt Progress I dont understand how someone can be patient enough to sew on ribbon... after ribbon.. after ribbon.. Girl you are amazing, and it is looking fantastic!!

I'm so excited to have this costume!!

I'm the luckiest girl in the woooorld! <3

15th September 2011: Fabrics Here are some of the fabrics that sandysuicide has bought for this costume! <3

11th September 2011: Wig This is the wig I have bought. It is the perfect shape, and from the looks of the photo, it isn't completely black, which is good, as Alice's hair in Wonderland had a red/brown tinge to it.

10th September 2011: Omega Necklace Started making the Omega necklace today, It is such a simple shape I have just moulded it out of model magic, which I will then paint, and attach to a pink ribbon.

I have made it slightly oversized, I thought it would look better this way with the style of the dress, to match the oversized buttons, big collar, and oversized bow.

7th September 2011: Boots Won on ebay!!

£80 boots for £26... score!! :D

.. I know alice doesn't wear heeels but... my short ass needs 'em!!

Just one thing, I think it would look slightly better if you managed to get ahold of thicker striped tights....but I know what a pain they are too find!

Great costume and some superb work on the props – the wood grain effect on the hobbyhorse is so realistic
