19th February 2010: CLOAK IS FINISHED! *dies*

19th February 2010: T-shirt complete I just need too:
Tidy up broom
Hem the cloak
Attatch the cloak and lining together (joy.... there's MILES of the thing)

I designed the logo myself, I liked the tradition touch. "Weird" is spelt like that intentionally, it's how they spell it in the book. I'm worried I'm going to be explaining that all day. The "s" at the end of "Sisters" is hard to spot (invisable on the photo). Created with: water-colours, acrylics, pastels and ink. Adjusted in Photoshop.
Transferred onto t-shirt by a local T-shirt transfer company (Teetshirts)

14th November 2009: Wig has arrived! I really need a wig cap though... seriously my hair pokes out everywhere. I didn't have this problem with Train becuase I pretty much have the same hair colour has him. However this wig shows my hait way too much.

I do love it though, it needs some touching up as the fringe is a little ling and it's nto naturally spikey (I just ruffled it a bit) but other than that i like it =D
<----- That's my HI GUYZZZZZZ face

28th October 2009: Bought Pink Wig and Broomstick. Broomstick:

Went to our local shopping centre today and saw a broomstick in a halloween store. It was a fairly good size and only £2.99 so we bought it; and I had to carry it for the rest of the shopping trip... Anyway, because it's Halloween broom it's a little untidy, and Tonks rides a Comet 260 which are meant to "look flashy" (Harry Potter nerdism here) so... It needs some neatning. Plus I want to customise it and make it more like Tonks. This may include adding glitter, ribbons, charms and writing "Comet 260" on it.


Found a Cherry Coloured spikey wig on ebay which is perfect for Tonks. Ordered it and it should be arriving soon. It may need a little bit of additional styling but it won't need to much because I really like it.
