I've been running on a bit of a nostalgia high on Kingdom Hearts recently, I've wanted to cosplay Sora for a while too so seems a good a time as any~

Wowee! You'll be so cute as Sora, can't wait to see this at Aya~~ If by some chance we're doing Final Fantasy when you're wearing this, then maybe we could get a picture together as it kinda fits ... xD

Wig! (Posted 30th January 2013)

Eeee now this is the big I'm really worried about!

I ordered my wig and extra wefts (just in case) from Arda, they were shipped on the 24th and I received them on the 29th! Absolutely amazing postage :O
But yes, beautiful quality as always, hence why I am so nervous to style it all now D:

I always see lots of Sora wigs in really dark browns but most of the refs are a nice brighter, warmer colour so I went with the Jareth and a packet of their Short Wefts in Warm Light Brown (AR015)
As you can see from the photo it's got such a gorgeous colour! :3 now I just need to decide on what method and style I plan on using for it...

Watch this space!

Chain fail (Posted 30th January 2013)

Annoyingly, after my last journal entry I managed to get myself some lovely HD screenshots and discovered that my plan for the chain strap thing wouldn't look right D: so yeah, that is being disassembled and I've bought something that will hopefully be the right size to work with. It's currently driving my insane that I can't find the right kind of chain! It's either the wrong shape or the wrong size, I found a perfect one in Wickes the other day but it had a black layer on it that I wouldn't have been able to remove, bugger!

Anyways photos!
Top: All mini crowns and necklace crown cut out (have since made a new necklace crown as the shape wasn't right)
Middle: Testing the layout of the crowns on the "chain" (also pictured is the chain I've ordered)
Bottom: Testing a new sandable top layer on some scraps to see if I can get a nice smooth texture on the Worbla (only one layer applied as a test, hence it looking a little uneven), then given a light coat of Rub'n'Buff as I adore the stuff and I have some lying around~

Chain-y thing progress (Posted 21st January 2013)

Getting fidgety about starting this so doing little bits wherever I can :D

Working on his chain belt thing atm, I've done all the chain loops now, just working on the many mini crowns on them!

Zips! (Posted 20th January 2013)

My big white zips for the playsuit/jacket arrived! :D

The red zip is a standard size open-ended zip to show the size comparison~ I'd have liked the white ones to be a little bigger (it was actually the smallest of 3 that I could have got) but it'll still be goooood

Now I need to decide which fabrics to use... Any ideas guys?
