Attachments Done (Posted 20th May 2015)

I loved making this. I can see the imperfections but I just don't care because it's fun haha! Hopefully I can remake it with as much fun and keep making it better.

Reginald the Fish (Posted 16th May 2015)

He's looking snazzy! His organza fins are done too. I haven't decided how to attach them yet but the worbla holds them in shape nicely. I love how this lacquer came out in the end! Turns out the first bottle I used had a duff nozzle. He has a gradient pole to sit on as well. I'm excited to add the flowy white organza because those are what make this costume really.

Body Plates (Posted 16th May 2015)

These are less annoying than sewing but also more boring than making a giant fish. They're taking a while but since it's on my face I want to make at least the headpiece really good. I need to have more patience with cosplay probably.
