To-Do List

Make dressMediumComplete
Make apronLowComplete
Make spearLowComplete
Make shoesLowIn Progress
Make jewelleryLowIn Progress


Pretty much complete (Posted 30th July 2013)

Just got to paint the mask and add another layer of paint to the jewellery and I'm pretty much done with this costume :D

More progress~ (Posted 29th July 2013)

Jewllery is nearly finished just need to get more cord for the necklace.
Mask just needs to be sanded and painted and I'll be finishing the boot covers later today!

Progress (Posted 24th July 2013)

Made one of the shoe covers, turned out to be more fiddly than I thought!
Earrings are done, just waiting on earring backs so I can actually wear them. Necklace is nearly done just waiting for clay to dry.
Made more progress on the mask, holes have been cut and I've inserted the napkin rings. Just need a layer of clay for smoothness and then it's ready to be painted and glossed.

Progress (Posted 19th July 2013)

Pretty much finished the clothing side of the costume, just get to make boot covers and done :)
Still have to finish her necklace, earrings and her mask but I have plenty of time to get that done (I hope!)

Spear (Posted 30th June 2013)

Spear nearly complete. Needs another layer of paint and detailing and then attaching to pole and done :)

Mask ready to be cut (Posted 30th June 2013)

~ See photo

Progress (Posted 26th June 2013)

Made and finished the white apron and the dress is half sewn. Napkin rings have arrived so I can now cut out the holes and get on with adding clay to the mask.

Progress (Posted 23rd June 2013)

Paper mache for the mask is complete, next step is cutting out eye and mouth holes (waiting on napkin rings before I can do this) and then adding clay. I've cut out fabric for her purple dress, just need to sew it together which shouldn't take long.

Fabric etc. (Posted 13th June 2013)

Bought white fabric for her apron today so I'm gonna start to make that asap. need to get a move on with the mask just in case I do it wrong, need time to do another one just in case! Waiting on a fabric sample for her dress.

Mask (Posted 11th June 2013)

Found a good tutorial for the mask so I've started making this first as it's the hardest bit!
