Progress (Posted 3rd April 2014)
So I failed at taking progress photo for this, so here's a list of what I did:
- I lost the butterfly I made for anime Sena, so I made a new one. I bought a blue plastic folder that matched the background colour I needed, then drew a butterfly design, cut it out and painted on the white highlights using acrylic paint, then used Sharpie for the black lines (it was more durable and a lot smoother than using black acrylic) before bending it into shape. I attached it to the wig using a long black bobby pin.
- I found a skirt that was exactly the same pattern as the one that didn't fit me, only missing the trim. So, I tea-stained some light cream fabric to get it to the correct colour, made ruffles, then pinned and sewed them along the edge of the skirt.
- I reused the old socks, painting a white line (using fabric paint) near the top, then going over with gold leather paint (trying to use things I had around the house!). By using white first, it meant that the gold was not as opaque and didn't require as many layers.
-I reused the shoes, wig and tie from anime Sena.
Clip progress (Posted 15th March 2014)
I lost the old one so had to make a new one - to be fair, it was a bit overdue ^_^;.
It took ages to find suitable plastic to use at the base. Fortunately I found aplastic folder on eBay that was just about perfect. I drew the shape of the butterfly, then cut out a template, transferred it to the plastic, cut it out then created a fold and added the black lines using a Sharpie (it looked a lot neater and cleaner than paint) and the white are using white acrylic paint. The acrylic is a bit fragile but it was the best I could come up with.
