13th October 2009: Debut Well, I've deciding I'm taking this little darling to FuyuCon :) I sewed the sleeves on (eventually) and I might consider buying some white tights if it's chilly :S She does need a debut, after all, and I'm running short of Costumes becasue I don't have enough wigs. I'm wearing the Matsumoto wig for this one since Refia is ginger, and I can just tuck the long hair under the collar of the cloak. Simples! ^^,

3rd March 2009: OMG, Shoez! Well, after kicking myself a wee bit I finally cracked on witth this a little more before college this morning :) I got the cape totally hemmed and the black ribbon is all pinned together now, so I just need to sew it tonight!
As for the sleeves, I've got some leftover cape material that I might be able to get my BF to help me work with ^^

And the shoes I saw for £9.99 Are pretty much perfect! They dont have the white folds at the top but I can just add those myself. I'm hopefully grabbing them on Friday morning :D

10th February 2009: I did it! Part 2 :) Okay so after taking my sewing machine to my BF's house, I managed to make a half-decent hooded cape last night ^^,. It could do with being a little thicker, I think, but for a first attempt it isn't half bad. Tonight I'm gonna attach the ears to it, which are essentially red felt triangles reinforced with cardboard and covered in a layer of fabric! I also started pinning the details to the dress, which are just silver ribbon and yellow felt. I'm just not looking forward to the boots >.<

7th February 2009: I did it! Part 1 :) After a trip to Boyes yesterday morning, and a couple of hours spent cutting, drawing, being picky, and using my sewing machine for the very first time I finally got the dress made! The details still need to be added but this being the first thing I've ever made I'm really happy with it! The collar is a little scruffy but it'll be covered by the cloak so I'm not too concerned. I am, however, so very annoyed with myself. If I hadn't left my bedsheet at my bf's house I could've had the cloak done, too!! Grrrrrrrr >.<

7th February 2009: Patterns! Well, a couple of nights ago (Thursday!) I managed to get down to my Aunt's house and we finally got the pattern finished! It was fairly simple and we just cut it out of brown paper. We also got a hood pattern figured out, too, which I just need to figure out how to attach ears to.

7th February 2009: Underskirt! I figured to make this skirt 'poof' out in the way it does, I'm gonna need some sorta underskirt!! Luckily, my aunt already had a pre-made one she'd made for a fancy dress party that I can have, plus I'll be wearing my lovely bloomers!

23rd January 2009: I Have A Very Cunning Plan... And It Ivolves A King-Size Bedsheet! :D Seriously If ,this works, home bargains FTW XD
Really Excited To get this started, it's a mega pain I'm working tonight Till 10PM!
