Ooooo I guess I'll be doig Yuna for the Friday then xD Your costume is actually EPIC!! xx

leumas posted on 12 February, 2010 - 19:08
Thank you my child.You can have a raise in pocket money for that.I think it is looking like FFX Jecht on Friday now for Kitacon,then Dissidia Jecht on Saturday and Braska Sunday.The only way to do Braska on Friday is if I paint on Jecht's beard the next day but that may look a bit crap.

Bambi. posted on 12 February, 2010 - 19:12
hehe awww damn the facial hair! xD Will be awesome ne'ertheless :D xx

leumas posted on 12 February, 2010 - 19:24
yeah thanks,try to wear your Yuna on Sunday or if that affects your plans too much maybe you could just wear the costume for a half hour or so,get a few good photos together

FairyPorchQueen posted on 22 February, 2010 - 12:27

Progress Journal

1st March 2010

Improvements fort eh art festival

For this festival I added some silver edging to the blue headband,but couldn't sew it to the top middle strip as it was attached to the thick plume at the back.I bought a blue glass bead and glued it to the centre of the headband,and I added the symbols of the aeons to the back of the plume.These were drawn with a wide nibbed caligraphy pen onto paper I cut into circles and then glued to the plume.The end piece was some stiff card again glued.The plume was unstitched from the other 2 sticky up bits to look more like the original hat,I managed to get them to stick up without the support by adding extra glue.

What I still need to do is glue silver fabric to the middle part of the headband that sticks up,add leaves to the bottom of the robes so they drag along the ground,and construct a back to the staff's head
