22nd October 2010: Upgrading: 50% completed Done her claws and they are now on her jacket, need to make some black felt parts to go over the claws parts when they aren't being used.
The mask is in progress, Placed red acetate into the eye sockets and started work on her smile. Some elastic needs to be fixed on and some LEDs need to be installed into the mask. Some alterations of the boot covers need to take place and then DONE!
Time so far: 2 Days (paper mache needed to dry)
19th September 2010: *Upgraded* Making claws for her now, made some out of cardboard this morning. Got to paper mache then, when I do that I will be working on the new mask as well as it can all be done at the same time less mess that way (I think)
Hopefully start paper mache next week when I get a day off and have free use of the dining table mwhahahahaha
1st July 2010: *Rebel 1* Finished her lovely dress/jacket the other day and cant stop wearing it :) I love it soo much. Started the boot covers today, just need to do the other one and sew the backs.
May do the little paws on the braces, will look for a boobtube if not will have to make one. One more step to completion :)
17th June 2010: Nyan Nyan Dress is in progress I am delighted with the outcome so far :)
Just got the sleeves/paws to do now which shouldnt be too difficult task, going to sew zips in the wrists so I can actually use my hands...
My stuffing for the ears come from old pillows from my student house XD Reuse and recycled, we liked this :D
Boot covers will be in progress once I know whether I need more fabric or not ^^' (someone doesnt think she brought enough) Then Taokaka is COMPLETE
Time so far: 2 evenings worth
8th June 2010: Watching Watching.... Ah just buy it now! XD Got all the ebayed items brought which included wig, shorts, braces, and mask base :)
Going to the fabric shop tomorrow to collect some fabric to get her dress in progress and her boot covers ... Shouldnt be too bad
Time so far: 10 hours surfing e-bay XD
4th June 2010: Meow :3 Got going on this today ^^ Found my cat tail from the cat maid I did at christmas and browsed the internet and got my eye on some red shorts, braces, wig and brought a plain black face mask.
Going to go to the fabric shop later on in the week to pick out suitable fabrics to start the main top on the costume and the boot covers... :)
