So all I have to do is to Paint the Flames using fabric paint. Might take me a while but I should get it
Hakama Legs started (Posted 24th February 2012)
It doesn't look fruitful so far but the panel for the back ahs been made and we decided between myself and my mum that we needed side panels and front panelts for this to work because let's face it. Mitsu doesn't wear disco trousers lol
Gi (Posted 24th February 2012)
So far the structure has been made with the lining but I never got a chance to actually got to take photos of it whilst mummy made the top, bit all I got to say is, it fits. It's rather Big....lol
Sleeves are being attached at a later point After the painting has been done for them
Beads (Posted 24th February 2012)
Compiled out of Styrofoam balls, painted with Bronze and Black Acrylic and covered with Car Laquer, and reinforced at the string with Acrylic string, should keep in place
Time to get to work! (Posted 3rd January 2012)
So here's the general idea of what's going to happen:
The sword is currently being remodelled from a Rin Cosplay sword and adapted for use since I can't a Masamune Made any time soon. Scabbard will go with it and hopefully a new Tang.
The Keokogi will be adapted in the following method:
Lapell/Collars will have a new Faded Red Trim on them.
The sleeves and trouser legs torn after the print of the Flaming Buddha's on the sleeves and the flames on the legs have been painted on.
Prior to this the Keokogi needs to be bleed I'm bleach to get the right colour.
Sashes will be dyed from different colours to achieve the colours necessary.
The Purchase of Zori's is still needed.
The Ceremonial Bells will be threaded together and painted brown then gold , then lacquered for the finished look.
Wig to be styled at the end. God this is gonna HURT!
