Shopping List

shoes to edit£5.00Bought


that boyband magic (Posted 12th March 2014)

as soon as I come to add a journal to this, Sherlock comes on shuffle on my ipod. Wow. Anyway.

I just FINALLY bought the last thing I needed to order for this costume! SO SICK OF BUYING THINGS FOR YOU TAEMIN. But it is done now and it was the trousers and hopefully they fit alright. Thankfully I can wear them as everyday things too so it's not so bad I guess. Waah I need to buy some bracelets yet! I had my eye on some in H&M that were kinda similar so I might get those this week for one wrist and just...wear my SHINee bracelet on the other since it's blue anyway.

OH AND I finally started actually do things besides buying things for this costume! Very much geometry was involved. Hopefully can draw everything on alright but we'll see (ps should only be painting the front for now because LOL what is time)

It took me the whole song to write this journal. Woooo, progress though!

cut! (Posted 29th January 2014)

finally dooooone omigosh. This took me at least 2 hours to cut from 80cm to whatever it is now (at least 20cm shorter)
It's obviously cut but I don't mind so much. The length is shorter in front then gets a bit longer in the back, but it's a liiiittle uneven so I'll need to borrow someone's noggin at Kita to fix that up. Also the side-fringe is really annoying and I'll need to cut that a little so it blends in more. But the hard part is over with this, whooo! All I can do for the time being.

semistart (Posted 2nd January 2014)

I've somehow gotten over a lot of my nervousness for this cosplay and am now completely hyped!
I bought some base shoes the other day, which I may or may not edit, I'm not sure. I know I could do it but the more I look at his shoes the more I think they don't work how I originally thought they did...may leave them last!
Also bought my wig the other day, it'll definitely need a cut! His hair changes lengths so much in this era, making things difficult on deciding how short I should cut the wig. Aah.

Gonna be looking bracelet look-alikes in the sales, same with...everything else pretty much. Really hoping I can find some ribbon/bias that matches some of the poncho patterns as well, but we'll see!
...need to practice contouring for makeup as well, 'long with eyeliner because wow I'll need it to pretend to be in this company
