Progress Journal

11th March 2010


Wig arrived today. Glad I have it. Can't really style it until I put it on for good to make sure it all fits under the hat. But yay - wig!

Done Hat

Well, I've done the hat, bar the white chord that goes down either side.

The hat is buckram (stuck with buckram in the end. Decided to use felt to cover it, made the base cover and sewed it together inside out. Then put the buckram base inside the felt base and sewed up the back and in inside circle. Made the cylinder section, covered that with the same felt, and the top of the hat, glued into the cylinder and the cylinder glued into the head part of the hat.

It fits okay, should hopefully be okay when I put the wig on with it. :]

Hat Begins

I did a mock up on the hat out of buckram, but the buckram I think was too heavy and so the hat was a flop. So I'm going to get some cardboard boxes and give it another try and cover it with fleece so its extra soft and fluffy!

I've ordered some tan gloves which should arrive tomorrow. In the mean time I'm waiting on my wig to arrive and my Palmon plushie too.

New fun project begins!

After seeing a brilliant little Digimon group at Midlands Expo, by friend Emily and I were really inspired to make cstumes for the characters from Digimon. A favourite show of ur when we were younger, and the show that introduced us to each other!

Not being one to cosplay, I opted to cosplay Mimi. I get to run around being a girly girl! XD And crying: 'EW' at anything.

The shrug is a Kwiksew pattern 3219, made smaller and smaller around the arms, because it started off being thigh height! Now it sits just at the right place.

The dress is a McCalls 9172. One of their '1 hour dress' patterns that works really perfectly. No zipers, two side seams and a back seam, and a button at the top to do it up! All made out of pink jersey fabric.

I need to buy some more buckram to make a hat base, and I'm going to seek out a suitable belt and suitable gloves.

The boots I will be editting from a pair of pixie boots I already own. ^^ Fun!
