Recent Progress Journals


White Tigress

Won a pair of blue strappy pointy toe high heels on ebay for a fiver. Just gotta pray they fit well and feel fine on my feet XD

Spots on!

White Tigress

Finally got a hold of some black paint so I could put the black spots on the earrings, mask and yoyo. I am waiting for the yoyo to dry so I can paint the other side before adding a final gloss to it.

Fabric dyeing.


Very happy with how this fabric turned out after dyeing yesterday. I've opted for a cotton canvas for both the poncho and crop trousers!

Wig and yoyo

White Tigress

The wig looks choppy now but will be tidied once the caulk dries on the cutoffs and the yoyo will need more coats of paint before varnishing.
