5th February 2014: Buttons When I couldn't find the right shape, size or colour of gold buttons for Otoya's shoulder strap things, I decided to get hold of some plain button covers that came with a backing, using gold spandex to cover them. They're so easy to use and will be investing in them more in the future should I need them :D
5th January 2014: Shoes Based on the chibi gacha machine version,I noticed the shoes were white with a black sole. Much hunting round later, I discovered it wasn't easy to find something like this on the high street which didn't cost me an awful lot.
So I had the option to get either a cheap pair of canvas shoes which were white and paint the sole black or get a black pair and paint the 'fabric' part white. In the end, I used a black pair.
To ensure the shoes looked white, I painted a few layers of white fabric paint over the pair and sealed them using mod podge which looked pretty snazzy afterwards ;D
