Wig (Posted 24th March 2012)
Wig came and looked longer than what I anticipated when I purchased it,so alotof heavy cutting and layering was involved before it took shape for what I want. used got2be Glued hairspray and gel in order to create the slightly spiked sections of his hair but it took me four tries to get it work, which in itself was quite frustrating. By the time time I was done I realized that I at the front there wasn't enough hair to create enough side bangs and a couple of gaps for where spikes had been sectioned off. Its possible that I might need to by more hair & sew them into create more fullness for the wig . *le sigh*
Shooooooes!! <3 (Posted 23rd March 2012)
I had a look for Spectator Brogues for Kotetsu footwear but I must say that the expense of them did not work in my favour :( so the most I could do was to "Craft" my own. I found a pair unused pair of black shoes and decided to use them. I didn't know what kind of dye to use on leather ,so I went to Timpson- and was recommended a shoe dye called Tarrago. The bottle was quite small so I was uncertain whether or not it would be enough for both pairs. However I was pleasantly surprise - the dye had thick consistency which was opaque with in two coats. As the mixture was ivory against black, the patent painted sections stood out well the original leather colour.
I first use a white eyeliner (as it cleans off easily) on the shoes and sectioned the design away with masking tape. The parts that were to be painted were prepared with acetone to remove any oil/polish to make the shoe waterproof. Afterwards, applied the dye and left it dry for 5 hours so that the new colour could become waterproof and flexible. I really recommend this dye to any who is dyeing real or synthetic leather shoes who don't want to by new ones :D !
shirt (Posted 5th December 2011)
I was looking all over town and the internet to find a shirt that was the right shade of teal to match Kotetsu' colours for about 4 weeks . Until eventually I found one- only difference is the shirt is more tailored towards woman as unlike a male shirt. Most likely I will have to wear a binder :/
