Information

I figured that I'll have a pair of fangs, a pair of red contacts and experience making a scythe...if I can ever figure out how to do the terrifying amount of detail on the ACTUAL costume, then we'll be ok ^_^'

EDIT: Progress is being made! Costume is sorted, wig is bought but needs styled and Clone is fantastically making the scythe for me! I really can't wait!

Really looking forward to seeing this. Especially the scythe. I had great fun (and trouble) making mine so I'm in awe of anyone building it. :D

sjbonnar posted on 22 February, 2010 - 20:24
Yeah, I'm not gonna be building it though ^_^' The rather awesome juggern0ught is aiding me with this endeavour!

sjbonnar posted on 12 March, 2010 - 18:36

Sephirayne posted on 21 March, 2010 - 12:50
Tresemme is your friend ;) Its the hair spray all Crusniks use, lol! (it certainally keep my Crusnikiness up all day. No wait,,,, that came out wrong O_O)

sjbonnar posted on 21 March, 2010 - 12:55
Hehehehe it "came out" perfectly well ;-) Freeze-Hold is what I've been attacking it with for days LOL Have emptied a full can into it now...Loreal Elnett Extra Strength might have to take over...LOL

Sephirayne posted on 21 March, 2010 - 13:21
Lol! Interesting. My own hair only took about a quarter of a can. I guess wigs can be stubbon. Its going to be awesome can't wait to see.

flames-of-monki posted on 25 March, 2010 - 14:44
if you can try thinning the wig specially in the middle im making a huge sonic atm and in the middle of the spikes and the top to get the pointy look it just makes them alot lighter

Sephirayne posted on 25 March, 2010 - 16:30
Wig is looking awesome. I still can't get over that I managed to do that in my own hair XD XD

sjbonnar posted on 25 March, 2010 - 21:03
Thanks hun, I think I've got it sorted now! Flames: That sounds epic! I've kinda run out of time now, but what I've done is taken some wire (wire coat hangers FTW!) wrapped it around a headband, threaded it through the mesh cap and up into the hair. I then bought some spray-on UHU glue and went to town LOL Sephi: I know! You're immense! I can't believe you managed that!

Sephirayne posted on 28 March, 2010 - 16:08
I'm gald the plan worked. Really looking forward to seeing some pics.

The Wig Styling Begins...

Ok, started styling the wig. It's currently hanging upside down being hairsprayed and back-combed into submission LOL I pinned the bangs down as I want to keep those still and have started styling! This could be a long process LOL
