Time Taken : 5 months

Description
Starting from top to bottom:

Head:
~For the hair I have just settled for a wig that I have found on ebay, there was a few that I could have brought but the one I decided to buy took me a while to choose as I obviously wanted it to be as perfect as possible. The chopsticks I found in a draw in my kitchen. (I hope that they they will not be missed). I have not yet got around to making the hair accessory Yoko wears as I have not decided what would be the best material to make it from.

Body:
~The Scarf was another item on ebay I found as I have not practiced making my own products yet. I would say the bikini was the hardest part as I didn't want to buy one online that was already made as there was no garrentee that it would fit me, so I found a plain black one on ebay that looked like it would fit and was the right style and shape for Yoko, I then went to a local fabric shop and brought red material to sew on to the bikini top for Yoko's flames.

Arms:
~for the gloves I found Theatrical opera gloves on ebay. As Yoko has one long glove and one short glove I only rolled down the glove and flattened it a bit to give it the square shape Yoko's glove has. I cut the fingers off both gloves and a square into the back on the rolled down glove to finish the details. The Bracelets she wears are impossible to find, so I checked evrywhere for plain black bracelets whiched proved har to find when I eventually found them on ebay, I originally brought yellow domed buttons to glue on but that turned out to be a bad idea so I am still looking for things I can possibly use.

Waist:
~I brought a pair of black shorts from ebay which are not plain like Yoko's but have pockets and belt holders. For the belt I brought a plain canvas belt with the metal plate already attatched to the front, I then found an old spiked belt I owned and removed the spikes from it and put them on the canvas belt.

Legs and feet:
~I brought White boots from ebay with a bit of a larger heel on them. I am going to buy some paint to paint on the flames butIi am unsure of how that will work out. I have brought plain pink socks of from ebay for the legs.
