|I'll be wearing this to the Zombiewalk on 8th October 2011.|
Boots! (Posted 6th October 2011)
...are not here! :(
I somehow suspect they'll get here too late for me to use them. So I guess I'll be in standard boots on Saturday instead, sigh.
(Might go poke about, see if I can assemble the doll's outfit instead - raincoat (which I have, and which is great!) with skirt and shoes and tights. But I doubt it.)
Wig and eyes (Posted 3rd October 2011)
First I straightened the wig (with hot water), then I styled it into the right parting, then I cut it to the right length.
The last picture is with the hairclip.
(I also made the button eyes! There's foam behind them to fit them better to the actual shape of my eyesockets.)
Progress (Posted 1st October 2011)
Wellingtons and raincoat have been ebayed--there was a bit of a fierce battle for the raincoat, but I won in the end. I've tried to get short-ish wellies, to make my legs look a bit longer.
Big button bases for the eyes have been bought. I need to add foam to the backs--I'm going to try and make the shape of the underneath a better fit for my eyesocket, and then hopefully I can glue the buttons onto my face (I've checked; the holes in the buttons give me reasonably-good visibility). Then I'll have to paint on new eyebrows (the buttons will cover my existing ones) and a mouth-seam.
I have found a wig (mm, living in a wig shop)--it needs some styling work, but I think it'll work great. I'll have to make her hair clip, though.
