|This is a super challenge. It may not look it, but ding a wig from scratch is SO hard. Everything else will be easy. I can't find the right boots, so i have these converse boot looking shoes which will do for now. I am making a Strawberry plush. |
Shirt doesn't tie in a knot at the bottom, so in reality it would probably be best to leave as an open shirt. Bought everything to make Berry (The strawberry plush). Have everything now. Unfortunately i won't be making the bag as i won't have time to make it, even though it would be very convenient.
1 day before the con and all i need to do know is finish of this plush, get teh wig sorted out and i'll be ready for MCM at manchester! Can't wait!
Manchester expo was a success despite all the rain, had a blast and met some awesome people!
Cosplay is complete however i never got any good photos while at Manchester. Will get some good decent photos soon!!

Strawberry plush progress #01 (Posted 18th July 2014)
So cut out the shape i wanted and i was torn between either painting on the seeds or gluing on small pieces of felt so they look more 3D. However i thought that would take a lot more time so i went with painting them on with Acrylic paint and iron it over with grease proof paper to hold it together.
Outfit so far (Posted 11th July 2014)
So i pretty much have everything, the boots however i cannot get hold of so im using some converses that kinda look like boots. But sometimes shoes doesnt matter unless it's pretty noticeable. Glasses i got off ebay pretty cheap, T-shirt and shorts of charity shops, Shirt off ebay.
Fitting the wig (Posted 11th July 2014)
Yeah it's awful i know, i'm trying reeeally hard on this wig so it comes out ok. So far i may have to weave some extra in the gaps. The ponytail is too heavy so it just flops down :/
I hate cutting wigs. (Posted 5th July 2014)
Seriously this has been a total nightmare. The wig is too heavy for the ponytail, the amount of hair i have literally feathered off.. apparently it's not enough! I literally hate the outcome but i'm going to live with it because i'm sort of proud of the outcome. I know i've done better but long wigs i cannot style to save my life! I've added a picture so you can see the mess i had to put up with D:
