20th August 2011: Slowly Getting There So since my last journal entry I've made a moderate amount of progress. The jacket is almost finished and just needs the last few finishing touches and then the detailing adding. At the minute I'm toying with the idea of adding applique to the lapels, similar to how I did with Gakupo, as at the moment it's looking at a bit bare.
I'm hoping to purchase my second wig next week as my first didn't really look right. I'm going more for a sharply cut, sleek, look with a heavy fringe and possibly a pony tail. I do however have my black extensions sorted.
And the corset, well, let's just say that's a sore subject. I've already put about 15 hours in to it and the moment I just feel like I'm in the dark with it. Having never made a corset I'm struggling considerably, and it certainly doesn't help that the pattern I chose is a historically accurate R&G corset. Fingers crossed it should turn out how I want it but we'll just have to wait and see :)
