O: I want to see them alllll :D

That'd be great thanks! I know it's been about 11 years since the first movie but I still though there would be better images kicking around.

More wig, I know so suprising! (Posted 7th May 2013)

I didnt take a photo of the progress as it's too dark in the livingroom to do so and I'd have to re-comb a bit I just de naughted which I dont want to have to do again...

Between parting, de-naughting and waving it I have now spent about 10hours on this wig. I honestly believe I am high on hairspray! Either that or I've damaged my eyes/sence of smell lol. I have about another 4 hours worth of wig waving to go and then I get the joy of floofing it.

I have the circlet to make, considering a under foam padding to plastic over layer because the silver spray I have will work so much better on plastic than foam. Same with the brooch. And the whoooole sewing to go. Including pattern cutting. Ho-shoot! ;_;

4 hours in. (Posted 2nd May 2013)

After 4 hours of styling i have the back n fringe to go. Save me!

It works! (Posted 28th April 2013)

Oh happy days! Now to just part the whole wig zzzzz

Wig again. (Posted 28th April 2013)

Okay so after a day of reflection I have desided I'm going to go buy a a Babyliss Hair Waver, This obviously has the 3 prongs meaning it'll shape it without me using my hairstraightners n alot of shimmying which didnt work. So fingers crossed that this works. I did put some sections of the original wig into pleats but I doubt that'll work or for long so investing in a Waver it is.

Also I have fairly short hair so I wont even be able to use it in my own hair but I can forsee my cousin wanting to "borrow" it. Lol!

Rage. (Posted 26th April 2013)

The other wig I ordered is shorter, thinner and a whole different shade of blonde from the image. So once again it's not right and I'm now throwing a hissy fit. I seriously doubt I'm going to get this done in time for May Expo so I may have to postpone her and chillax n come back to her before I get so annoyed that even wearing her wont make me happy.

-edit-

Infact the new wig looks like it's make a better Eowyn wig than Gladdy.... >_<

Wig crimping test (Posted 30th January 2013)

Took a snip off my wig as when it arrived it said it couldn't be heated so I sadfaced n threw it to the side. I took a pair of old hairstraightners to it and suprisingly it did what I wanted it too! :D good times :3

Elfy ears (Posted 28th November 2012)

Need to be trimmed but they are nice n light and I hardly feel them at all :D

Wig (Posted 27th November 2012)

It arrived! Forgive me but it's late and I'm still in work clothes ¬_¬; Also it's SO long! I knew it was 150cm but still it's past my knees which totally caught me off gaurd.

Prop (Posted 21st November 2012)

My Nenya ring arrived in the post today n I didn't even order it more than 48hrs ago! It is soooo purdy and now to see if it fits the required finger lol! X3

Wig (Posted 19th November 2012)

This is the wig I bought! If you want to see the elf ears look on my hobbit versions journal xD

Bought (Posted 17th November 2012)

Just bought my wig and latex ears! Now to finally pick fabric :D

Hair (Posted 24th October 2012)

So I went on a mission on how to crimp hair without a crimping tool and I was successful!!! :D Now just to pick a wig and preferablly one that can cope with hair straightners. Mission accepted >:3

Fabric (Posted 22nd October 2012)

I went to Glasgow yesterday n desided to fabric hunt for Galadriel, alas the options were horrid and the one I might have accepted was £76 a meter (I need 7 ish meters) so I laughed and walked on. So the hunt continues! (It could be I'm just being overly picky?)

Pattern! (Posted 18th October 2012)

My pattern arrived! I only ordered it two days ago~

Now I need to deside what fabrics to go for, I defo need a lace and a silky fabric. Also trying to pick a wig to krimp arg! Why are there no good photos of her? D:
