Costume Information

General
Cost : £90+
Time Taken : a month

Description
I picked this cos as it was light and easy to wear for AX and because its a character my Dad might know of as he always spams Maxi when we play SC

My first time wearing this I had a lot or sunburn and some nasty tan lines :(

So I pretty much painted myself in spray concealer and rubbed it in and sealed it with hair spray as best as I could, even so the inside was stained to hell and back and the dry cleaners have butchered the Bias so there are a few repairs needed before Aya.

Yay! Soul Calibur love! :D Do it for Aya! We have a big Soul Calibur group getting together and could always do with more characters!
Wish you a lot of luck with this! I'm sure you'll pull it off brilliantly though! :]

Journal

RE DO!!!! (Posted 8th May 2009)

I am now entering new territory....
I have always accepted flaws in costumes, cut corners And general used bodgey cover-ups...

This tme i had no choice...

When ironing on Violene i kinda scorched the top so i first of all tried to cover it up with white fabric paint, it looked really bad....

So having that fail i have had to re do ive never had to restart from scratch before..... now im at the point i was 2 weeks ago :( time is ticking down TBH im worried :S

...More Shopping (Posted 17th April 2009)

Spent another £31 on a shopping Spree
40x5mm Eyelets
10x10mm Eyelets
35x11mm Push on Cover buttons
Red Green and Black Fabric paint

Now all i need is Propage, Wig, Possibly more paint and every ladies favourite new shoes

Shopping (Posted 9th April 2009)

Just spent £30 on
5m of White Cotton Drill
6m of Faded red Bias
3m of White Bias
A Pair of Black Jeans
still lots more to buy but this is enough to get me started
