Aftermath (Posted 16th November 2012)

So, expo's been over for a while now. Think I've finally recovered XD Loads of people took my photo, and everyone seemed generally impressed by my outfit (even if a few people did call me Moxxi)!

The costume held together quite well, I mean, it could've been worse. The velcro on the underbust refused to stick, I was literally sticking it the night before. I sat down in the hotel at the end of Saturday, and it all just fell off. The straps for the underbust hated me, I ended up with brown armpits where the paint wore off... Plus, I had little sores where I had to use stuff to stick the foam to my skin, cause it refused to stay attached otherwise. What else? Oh, I didn't wear the new contacts (the really comfortable ones ripped) because I couldn't see and they were hella sore. My feet were so swollen (4 inch heels are not fun for a heel virgin) and I was tired from all the walking, but that's to be expected.

If I wear the costume again, I need to change a few things:
1. The straps need to be some form of elasticated so they don't pop off every time I stretch
2. I need to repaint all the belts, I thought the brown paint I used was acrylic but it totally wasn't (see if I can find a brown spray paint).
3. I need to find a better way of keeping the leg belts up, the sticky pads I used hurted like hell to take off and left little cuts and sores. Not fun.
4. And, I need to get a better way of holding my wig on. Said wig also needs a jolly good brush XD

Other than that, it should all be good (providing the paint on the dress doesn't wash off)! I'm already thinking about next year's costume, but got DojCon to prepare for first!

Spent the whole day with Yuki (Posted 15th October 2012)

Stuck the scopes to the hat
Started on the belts
Finished the boots (pictured)
Got the dress pattern cut and pinned

Up Until Now (Posted 9th October 2012)

(Photo of the hat)
So far, I've managed to make the main part of the hat, bought the gun, bought the contacts, ordered the boots and found a wig. All the armbands have been made, I just have to add the cog on the left top armband. Oh, and I've bought the gloves.

All I have left to do (I say 'all' ):
Stick the scopes to the hat
Make the dress and neck ruff
Make the two belts
And the leg bands
Spray the boots
Get the gun painted (I have found someone willing to paint it for me)

PS. tried on one of the contacts, took me an AGE to get it in... don't look particularly purple on me tbh...
