2nd May 2013: Boots version 2 Here are my new sexy leather Kai Hiwatari shoes! A 100% better than my old pair Which are also dead from ALOT of use ^^; But I am mega proud of this pair! They reallllllllllllly do look the part personally! So can't wait to wear them with the rest of the outfit! (Getting to test it all out this weekend super excited!)

23rd April 2013: Edits and stuff For May Expo 2013 once again Kai is getting an upgrade (Bascially almost everything XD)

The Wig; The wig has had a base change, The back of this wig has changed to a lighter more bluer shade to closer match the reference and it looks so much better now!

Shoes; I have proper leather shoes which I soon will be editing into his bad ass boots

Gloves; Totally remaking these bad boys! No more paper machéd spikes for me >D

Scarf; This is my 4th Scarf now? I'm never happy with it XD I have actually completed this scarf now hopefully this will be the last time too!

Top - New top! No more dimond like shapes on my top and this is not as see though either thank god =-= I might need to take it in alittle more though seems alittle baggy

Belt Buckle - I have a new one! I did make one from Fimo but i lost it (Found it now though!) But as sexy as the fimo one was I REALLY REALLY like this new one I made *nod nod* Worth burning my thumb and getting a blister on it for!

22nd May 2011: New Pants Hated my old pants so now I have new ones for May Expo! Much better ones slightly darker and more comfy! C8 xD

23rd January 2011: Blade Finally got my hands on the Dranzer F Beyblade. Cost me £18.99 just for that one blade! Oh well......At least I have it ^^ Well when it arrives lol

9th December 2010: Wig Preview 2 Again xD

9th December 2010: Wig Preview Here is a webcam preview

19th November 2010: Top Stage 2 This is stage two of the Kai top. I took the base top and cut out thick strips of Red Drill fabric I had left over. It's the same material I used on my boots and gloves so everything matches. I then hand sewed them onto the top. The top collar was done red as I remember him having it there too in one episode.

19th November 2010: Base top As I am too Lazy I bought myself a tank top for £2.99. I know it's cheating but meh xD I can cheat once in a while. Anyway here it is.

18th November 2010: Make up test Here is the test for Kai. I just wanted to put the triangles on since the face paint arrived XD Anyway this is also showing the base wig ill be using for the dark blue part of his hair. It's my old Hinata wig which needs work but I can't do much till i have the other wig to attach to it. I painted my eyebrows too the colour of the other wig but it obviously makes no sence right now ^^;
the top isnt the one that will be used for Kai its my Yami top XD Still awaiting the top to arrive to edit it =/ Oh well XD enjoy.

18th November 2010: Welcome Joe The scarf was finished today and was named Joe by Tanya xD She said Kai's scarf is called Joe so we named mine Joe too ^^
Made up of millions of pieces and worth it 8D bought way to much material though lol

16th November 2010: Glove progress Currently working on spikes and belt buckle. Here is photo of the spike base. Its abit shorter now than when the photo was taken. I have made them in craft foam and will be paper macheing them later ^^

16th November 2010: Kai's boots Here is one completed boot. Currently working on the other. this is a boot bought from primark and edited. The Red section is made of Craft foam covered in Red Drill fabric. Hand stitched onto the boot and Silver in the correct places. I think it came out rather well ^0^

15th November 2010: Boots Working on Kai's boots this evening. They are simple to do ^^. I bought some black boots from Primark about £5. I bought Silver paint to paint the bottom of the shoe Silver. Currently waiting for them to dry. I have cut out in Craft Foam the red section of his shoe and am sewing on red material onto that. Photos soon.

13th November 2010: Materials I have nearly everything for Kai now. Will be starting everything else soon.
I only need the black top and the Light blue part of the wig.
I bought the scarf material and craft foam yesterday and today my pant material arrived. It's a little lighter than I thought but still good ^^

11th November 2010: Beginning of Gloves Here is the beginning of Kai's gloves. My main problem is in the middle it becomes baggy. I may have to put another peice of Elastic in to get them not so baggy. I know it won't be how Kai has them then but at least It wouldn't have flappy sections and be more glued to my arm then 8D - I donno I'll see how it goes. Ignore the black bobble around the wrist... It's just so you can see what It should look like once I attach the silver section there.
I'm going to the material shop tomorrow to get craft foam to start the Amour parts of the gloves.
Oh and it needs an Iron XD

18th October 2010: Ideas for self use Ideas!
Pockets will have a craft foam bottom to make it stick out like Kai's does. The amour on The gloves are going to be made from craft foam and covered in silver material to get the armour effect.
Gloves will be attached by clasps as seen in one episode of beyblade
Belt will be made from foam and covered. (Would have preferred to make from plastic but I'm poor XD)
Top - I found a perfect leather top on ebay but it was £66 ¬3¬ So I'll make it myself from some leather type material >D
The red will be same as the top material and will also be used for gloves and the red section of his boots.
This time of year we can easily buy flat black boots which I could edit into Kai's boots! >D Good old Russians lol. Scarf will be done with long flowy white material and I am hoping to stuff the top so that it sits like Kai's does......but that's just the plan XD Also trying to find Kai's Dranzer shooter and Dranzer F Beyblade. Maybe even Black Dranzer if I feel like being Evil Kai XD
