New Wig (Posted 16th January 2014)
Unfortunately I had to buy a new wig because I was really struggling to cut and style my old one because it was just way too thick. No matter how much I thinned it it just wasn't happening. So instead of buying from a Chinese company (Lucaille), this time I bought from an English one (Coscraft) which was great because it only took two days to turn up.
Its a good wig but at £16.50 I'd expect it to be lol. Looks like its going to be a lot easier to style as well and the parting is better on this one too, it has a skin top parting. So long story short I should have bought from them first >_<
More box cutting (Posted 14th December 2013)
Started to cut out the slits in my box that my blades will slot into. Took a while to get the measurements right but I got there in the end. With the second one ill just trace round it lol.
I also ended up cutting off one of the end flaps from each piece as they made it so the whole thing didn't fit well together.
Cut out my Boxes (Posted 30th November 2013)
Finally got round to cutting out my boxes. It turned out I didn't need the extra cm after all so I cut those off. They look pretty small now that I'v cut them out but oh well its not like I can easily add anymore onto them so they will just have to stay like it.
I wont be gluing them just yet because I still have the pieces to put inside that will hold my blades. Then once Iv made those Ill start to glue it all together.
Paranoia (Posted 26th November 2013)
Ok at this point I was getting paranoid that something would go wrong so I decided to add a lovely cm to the bottom edges just in case I ended up losing some of the length. Also I decided to go flaps as you can see in the picture lol. I can always cut them off it they don't work.
The picture gives you an idea of how I laid both blade holders out onto my cardboard box.
Ok I WILL cut them now >_<
Final lines and measurements drawn (Posted 25th November 2013)
Ok this picture shows my final lines for cutting and folding. Each blade holder will be made from two sides each of my large cardboard box. Making use of the massive fold down the middle and creating folds of my own (fold here). I have also added on an extra flap to to the end so that when I secure it all together I can fold the flap inside for extra strength.
The whole thing will fold into one box. I was thinking of adding on the front and back flaps as well but I'm not sure yet. Ill decide that once I come to cut them out. If I did they would be added on to each end of one of the 13.5cm sections.
All that's left now is to cut them out.
Drawing out my measurements (Posted 24th November 2013)
Right, Iv started to draw out the lines for my Blade holder. The picture shows the measurements that I'm using to make the whole thing. I'm going to cut it so that I can make use of the creases that are already on the cardboard. Hence why I haven't started drawing it right at the end of the card.
The bottle is only on there so that I could get a rough idea of how tall it will be from the side as I'm using the plastic bottle ends for my cylinders.
Fyi Im 5'3. Approx 159cm tall.
Sketches (Posted 24th November 2013)
I got bored so decided to do some sketches of the 3D Maneuver Gear. Working out what size I wanted to make it and some of the materials I might want to use.
I missed this out in the drawing but in total it will probably be around 31cm in length which would be including the gas cylinder on top
Pajama's 2 (Posted 19th November 2013)
Decided to put my pj's on with my wig. Obviously I need to do a lot of work on the wig to make it look just like Levi's hair.
People keep saying how well I suit having hair like this. I guess my natural hair is pretty boring.
Boots (Posted 19th November 2013)
Got my boots today, just one problem, they are REALLY tall on me. Personally I think I look stupid but hopefully when I have the rest of the outfit sorted they will blend in. If not ill have to think of a way to shorten them somehow.
On the plus side they make awesome pirate boots when the top is folded down lol.
Wig (Posted 16th November 2013)
Got my wig ages ago but cant actually remember when it came. Just me wearing it before Iv styled it.
