I'm basically buying the bulk of this costume instead of making it, because I can't knit. :D

As I've said before: I should remember that the sillier I'm allowed to be in character, the more fun I have in a costume. :D

I'll never be a skinny Japanese rock star boy, but apparently I could be a cross-dressing idol boy instead! :D

Thanks! The curl was the only really awkward bit of this costume to do. :)

I bought a HUGE jumper from eBay -- just from someone selling their old jumpers -- and then altered it a bunch so it was more fitted down the sides and the sleeves weren't hanging off me. :) I actually tried buying one from Taobao first but it was too short, alas.

Journal

Drill curl (Posted 25th February 2013)

As finished as it's going to be until the day!

Drill curl (Posted 24th February 2013)

Silicon gel and wig: magical drill curl stability.

At least in theory. This is partway through the styling process; the bottom section curls in one direction, and the top section curls around that in the other direction. So it's a bit awkward, but it's getting there. More smoothing needed. Most of the problem at the moment is stopping the weight of it from unravelling the curls.

In other news, the jumper has been cut down; it is now a far better shape. Huzzah.

Jumper, attempt 2 (Posted 18th February 2013)

I found a new jumper!

This one is kind of the other extreme - it's HUGE, to the point where I'm going to have to take it in a bit or it'll just hang off me, and the colour isn't ideal. :D But it does have lots of fold-down on the neck, and it's probably long enough. Trade-offs, sigh.

Wig 2 (Posted 9th February 2013)

Well, after some thought, I decided that the base wig I had before looked a bit thin on top (pale wig fibres, sigh), and generally wasn't quite FABULOUS and voluminous enough.

So I'm wefting it together with another wig. The other one is a slightly paler pink, but since the base wig has a gradient to darker-at-the-base anyway, this really just adds to the effect. Even just wearing it over the base wig looks better than before (I'll do this properly, but for demo purposes)!

Jumper (from taobao) (Posted 4th February 2013)

Jumper arrived! It's generally smaller than I'd hoped, despite ordering the biggest I could (I mean, it fits, but the shoulders seem designed for someone really narrow, and there's not as much fold-down on the neck as I'd wanted). Bleah. It'll do in a pinch but it's not ideal, really.

Wig (Posted 3rd February 2013)

I have a wig.

Eee! Now I get to try to do that drill curl.

(I also bought leggings, and a headband. But the wig is the pretty bit.)

Shoes (Posted 5th January 2013)

Surprisingly, these were not awkward to find!
