4th July 2016: Paris! Yay! A bit of face paint under the eyes, blue contacts and we're good to shoot in Paris <3
30th June 2016: Yoyo progress This isn't as smooth as I'd like, but I ran out of time, so I painted and assembled the yoyo together. It opens to reveal the call/map screen like hers does. I attached black elastic string and wound it
27th June 2016: Miraculous My ears aren't pierced, so I bought some red magnetic earrings. The dots were just added with marker pen
23rd June 2016: Yoyo I had my yoyo parts 3D printed. There was a lot of sanding and priming involved as the pieces needed to fit together.
10th June 2016: Spotson! I finished the suit, and then with the help of Yuka and Isamiaella got my spots put on. They spent all night painting them on while I stood and watched the Sailor Moon reboot ;-;
It took me 2 hours to scrub the imprints of the spots off my skin at 5am in the morning as I was due in work in an hour... sob
8th June 2016: Making the suit So, this was my first time attempting spandex.
I bought a zentai suit online, took it apart and learnt the pattern shape.
I made a mock up suit with lining and practised adding feet and hands to the pattern.
For my final suit I decided to drop the lining as the material was thick enough alone and with the lining, it added far too much weight and unnecessary bulk to the costume.
3rd June 2016: Masks Isamiaella made a cast of my face for our masks, then used worbla to make very close form fitted eye pieces. They're the definition of a perfect fit!
29th May 2016: Material I spent a veeeerrrrryyyy long time researching and searching for the best fabric for this costume. I settled on 4 way stretch clear dot lyrca in red, and black for the neck piece.
The spots will be painted on as hers are clearly printed onto the suit!
16th April 2016: Wig I had my wig from my Marinette cosplay, I had initially added wefts to the fringe to give it more bulk to imitate her thick hair, but after wearing it at kitacon I decided the sides needed more wefts also. For Ladybug I added even more wefts into the sides to help frame my face. There is A LOT of extra wefts in this wig now XD;
The ribbons were made using wired ribbon to help them stand up and flick out.
The wig base is [chibi?] in Midnight.
