Costume Information

Cost : ~ £35 so far
Time Taken : 6 hours

To go with selph's awesome Misery for the Friday of Kitacon 8D

EDIT: For the life of me, I couldn't find any polyester dye to make the tights yellow/red instead of white/red. I even tried dyeing them with food colouring, but that didn't hold :/ Oh well, as I can't feasibly do any more before Kitacon, I'm listing Ruby as complete :D

8D Thank you my lovely <333

Honest to blog, I have looked EVERYWHERE for polyester dye. Even the lady in the fabric shop told me they didn't have it *sadface* and it's something like 8 quid online =P

Looks like I'll have a little companion coming with me to Kitacon :)

She took about three and a half hours to make. In hindsight I wish I'd sewn her eyebrows and stuck her eyes on BEFORE I sewed the front and back of her head together. And her neck is a little long. But I don't care, she's so pissed-off looking it's adorable xD

Make-up Test (Posted 19th February 2011)

Left my library book at work today, so what better excuse than to play around with make-up for Ruby :)

I love this wig, I'm pondering having my hair cut like it...

Wig and Dress (Posted 24th January 2011)

Wig arrived today. It's so uber cute xD

Will be altering the dress and adding the lace when I haven't got so much uni reading to do... which might be in a year and half when I graduate ^_^'
