Wig, Skirt, Shirt and Sweeper were Commissioned, the rest was all made/bought seperately by me :D
I must say, this was suposed to be a cheap cosplay idea, thinking that if I buy a simple version of the cosplay online (Cheapest one that was good quality) and then I thought I would make the accessories rather than forking out to buy a full one online at £70+ and then a wig on top of that, but it seems the way I did it was just as expensive ^^;
But oh well, it was more fun and rewarding this way, I felt so accomplished after I finished making something :DD
Aaargh! there were a good few pics taken of me when I was at Expo and not one of them have surfaced! Ooooh the frustration DX
If you have Pictures of me and/or my friends from the Expo then I would be eternily grateful if you could send them to meeee x3

Right i Have done the Make-up test, And it doesnt look too bad actually!
Applied a thin layer of Nivea Moisturising Cream all over my face.
Sooo yeah thats it!
And yeah, Im not an expert,so I just did what I thought looked okay xD
Done (Well, for the most part ^^; ) (Posted 17th May 2012)
I think I am pretty much finished!
Stockings + Hold Ups + Leg Attachment! (Posted 16th May 2012)
So yeah! im quite proud of them! they took about 1 hour to do both (I made so many mistakes! i guess my sewing skills are a little rusty ^^; )
The Cosplay (Posted 13th May 2012)
I Bought this from Ebay due to lack of a sewing machine and general sewing know-how (I can only sew/adjust small things ^^; )
BATTLE OF THE BANDS! (Posted 12th May 2012)
Sooo, Im not sure which one i want to use anymore D:
The Leg... Ummm... Uhhh... Attachment? xD (Posted 7th May 2012)

Bracelet! (Posted 29th April 2012)
Shoooooes! >w< (Posted 18th April 2012)
I am so excited about these shoes! i didnt think i would find anything like these, i was willing to settle for some plain Converse type shoes (But all the Converse i found were around £40 :O) So after about 10 different shops i began to lose hope, i was thinking of just settling for my old black converse, but then i went into New Look (not thinking i would find anything like it in there)and there they were! In all there Glory!!! They arent perfect or exact but i LOVE them! For the both the cosplay and for me in general >w<
Sooooo thats the story behind the shoes xDD (Lol i raaammbble >.>)
Armband Almost Finished! (Posted 9th March 2012)
This happened alot sooner than i thought!!!
I have decided that it will be pointless to paint the inside of the band (But i havent worn it since painting it yet so i might change my mind and paint the inside)
Anyway, I have glued down all the parts that stuck up, i started using ordinary super glue but that wasnt as 'Super' as i had hoped, so i was digging around in the cupboard and found some super Presicion glue which was soooo much stronger, i ended up glueing the band to the kitchen roll i had layed on the worktop a few times but i manged to get it off before the glue had fully set.
All i need to do is fully attach both ends together with glue or fastners (probably glue xD) and then add the metalic button like thingies which i will do later =D
Sorry for crappy image again, it was taken on my webcam xP
Armband Has Been Started! ^0^ (Posted 8th March 2012)
I had no idea that making the armband would be so frustrating!!!
Well anyway, this is my first attempt at the armband (will possibly do another one after this is glued and painted, but if this one looks good enough then i will just keep this one xP)
Well basically i cut out 15-25 small Rectangle pieces of card and attached them together in a way that creates a crosshatch effect, i started using double sided tape but that was a bit of a bitch being both time consuming and frustrating and it wasnt very sticky so i decided to just tape (Normal tape) them together from the back (the part that wont be visible)
I am yet to glue down the parts that stick up and paint it (I have the acrylic paint already, its a nice redy, purpley, brown xD i cant remember what it was actually called -Shot-)
Because i got lazy half way through the corsshatch effect isnt continuous, so i think i might cut little squares of card and stick them in the middle of each rectangle so it will look better xP
Hopefully i will be able to continue it tomorrow, or sunday (I haz work on saturday =P)
Sorry for crappy image, it was taken with my webcam xD
