Mask Progress & Capetastic! (Posted 14th May 2013)
So after about a week and a half, with lots of time, peely glue fingers and one near miss (where I left my mask out in the sun, which turned to rain, and then forgot about it) I am nearly there! Yes at the moment it looks a bit like a piggy, NEVERMIND! Hopefully it'll look better when I put the fur around it and paint it (probably not in that order). Used mesh for the eyeholes so that it gives that 'realistic feel' and I've made it out of two basic cardboard face masks bought from ye oldy craft shop.
Also made the cloak yesterday! Yaaay! The fabric/fur I bought for it is absolutely gorgeous and I had to physically stop myself from rolling in the stuff before I actually started pinning. Had a few teething problems (accidentally sewed the wrong side but quickly realised my mistake) but it turned out absolutely fantastic. Just need to add poppers to the cloak to attach to my top, and the little extra tail bit on the end and we'll be pretty much done with the body of San!
Back from a productive day ^^ (Posted 11th May 2013)
Yesterday I went round a friend's house (AlienQueen*) who is awesome and amazing. She helped me to sew and make my San dress and cream top, which I am incredibly pleased with <3. Took a couple hours, we used another dress of mine as a base and one of her shirt patterns for the top. It's pretty baggy but works well.
We were lazy and didn't hem a lot of the fabric but it really works to my advantage as San has that sort of roughly-made look about her outfit. I need to slash it up a little at the edges and at the bottom of the dress but otherwise mainly done ^^.
Now to finish my mask, which I have been seriously working on this week XD. Finished the eye holes and the mouth, put gauze over the eyes (as I bought a plain mask and worked over that). Now I just need to add the ears which I will build onto the back of the mask, and then paint it. Got some beautiful material for San's hood and cloak so am looking forwards to that <3.

Starting out again finally (Posted 3rd February 2013)
Finally decided on a Cosplay for this may's London Expo. Yay ^^, it's San from Princess Mononoke. I have some leftover material from my Merle Cosplay so hopefully that'll be enough to make her cape/hood thingy. Need to find a good base mask, I'll be looking in craft shops for that soon. Also I have sorted out the shoes by looking through my mother's vast collection xD. Shoes are one of the most awkward things for me to find so glad that's out of the way.
Hmnn, to use my own hair and cut it or get a wig? Not sure yet. Overall this should be a pretty cheap, but effective Cosplay to do. Am looking forwards to it! And might even get me an Ashitaka if I'm lucky!
