Information

I remember waiting for this game since I first watched the KH2 secret ending YEARS ago, and it's become my favourite of the KH series <3
I love Aqua. I know don't look much like her but she's the only female KH character I've really appreciate and her costume is amazing <3 Hope I can do her justice!

Wearing this on the Saturday of October Expo '11

Awww thank you so much! I'm kind of bricking it about the armour but I'm doing a lot of research into moulding methods and such, I hope I can do her justice!

13th October 2011

Wig done!

Hooray! The wig is finished! :D After my annoyance regarding the first wig I'm really pleased with how this turned out, I've never had to spike wigs before so this was really fun!
So basically this used to be a long wig, I cut off the excess hair and made two wefts out of it (I still have loads of hair left...) Then I used got2b hairspray and spiking glue to style it. I'm really pleased with the result!
I'm also wearing my blue contacts, I think for expo I'll wear false eyelashes as well (to get that kingdom heartsy look).

11th October 2011

New wig

Ok, so the first wig I ordered turned up looking NOTHING like the picture...so instead I bought this one, I've started making wefts out of the excess hair and will style it as soon as my mannequin head arrives. I can't wait :D

11th October 2011

Sweetstack WIP 3

Started painting the orange wedges and the "ice cream" blobs :D this is just the first layer so will add more detail once it's dry.

3rd October 2011

Skirt, shorts + stockings

Ok, bad picture is bad. Just to show off the most recent progress.
The shorts and stockings were easy, I bought some thick viscose leggings from Primark, cut them and sewed them up again to make them separate.
The skirt isn't completely finished, I need to put on a fastening at the back and iron it so it's the right shape, and I also need to make the white sash wrap things too, which I have the fabric for.
I wanna work on my keyblade more!!

26th September 2011

Sweetstack WIP 2

Added the orange wedges which I made out of sculpey, and the little blobs of ice cream (i think) around the bowl). Gonna start on the handle next, unfortunately I left my paints at home so I'm gonna have to wait a while until I can paint it D:

23rd September 2011

Sweetstack WIP 1

So..this is my first attempt at a pretty complicated (or atleast I think so :P) weapon! I'll be making Aqua's Sweetstack Keyblade, which, if you haven't played the game, is the keyblade you can get by completing the ice cream mini-games. It's my favourite keyblade, and oh so delicious looking <3
It doesn't look like much at the moment, but this is the progress I made today. I think the handle is gonna be the hardest part D:>

14th September 2011

Contacts!

These are the DollEye Blue contacts that I ordered. They're so blue! They don't look very natural from up close but they look so bright, which is good for me as I have quite dark eyes. I love them!

29th August 2011

Sleeves + Armour

I made the sleeves out of a plain white cotton fabric, made a pattern, sewed and hemmed them. Probably the easiest part so far of this costume :P
I was researching different methods of making the armour, and because I've never made anything like them before I decided to use craft foam, as it's a flexible and very easy to work with material.
I cut the individual pieces out of paper first to check the size, and then used them as templates for the craft foam. I heated the pieces over the stove to create the shape, and then made a sealant out of superglue, fabric glue and water before painting. I used acrylic paints and then glued the pieces together, and then to the sleeves.

Wig!

Aqua's hair is the most awkward thing ever @_@ it looks different in almost every cutscene! I've settled on this one though, it's a really nice icey kind of blue, and I hope it'll look good.
