|OK i decided I wanted a challenge, and I have to admit I really, totally and completely fell in love with the Scissors Crown artwork that Thores Shibamoto produced. It's so amazing. I really love Claus' costume design, so I am going to give it a shot. This will definitely be step-up challenge for me, but I want to give it a go! Hopefully I can learn some new skills, especially making the prop XD;|
I wore this to MCM Expo, with the giant scissors as a prop. I then decided to re-wear it for Ayacon, and wanted to make a new prop, so I made the puppeteer mistress for Ayacon xD
I love wearing Claus so much!! ^^;

Scissors Prop (Posted 30th May 2013)
This was my prop progress. The scissors were made using light MDF wood,, cut out and then strengthened with coats of primer. The 3D details were doing with a mixture of Worbla and fimo clay.
More Hat Progress! (Posted 28th May 2013)
More hat progress; here I was just gluing the decorations on, around the hat rim :)
hat progress ^_^ (Posted 28th May 2013)
This was the start of the hat - made from craft foam, cardboard for the base, covered in fabric and then the piece which goes around is made from black leather, and decorated with 3d paint and gems.
My pretty dress ;) (Posted 28th May 2013)
Man-skirt progress pics. Was made with my heavy duty shiny blue material (which was actually dim-out curtain material <3!) And hemmed with lilac cotton.
Fimo jewellery (Posted 28th May 2013)
Just another photo of my Fimo clay pieces, all hand-made. And then either baked in the oven, or heated with a hot-air gun! And then the beads glued in :)
needle & sheath w.i.p. (Posted 13th January 2013)
regrettably, I haven't really taken (m)any photos of the needle and it's sheath in progress. however, this is the origins/starter of them both. as you can kinda make out in the photo, the long black needle/sword shaped thing is... well.. the needle :) it is made from wood, which has been sanded to make it more swordly-shaped. the sheath was made from Worbla.. as you can see in the photo, that was a rough mock-up of the shaping. shit loads of heat gunning later, and i now have a sheath. i didn't really take any progress photos of it, apart from this.. but the sheath is all done now :) and my fingers have lots of nice lovely heat blisters....
