4th August 2011: Shoes Pudding had sourced me some black kitten heeled shoes and for a while I had thought they would do as I have red tights AND white stockings to wear but when I tried that in my home they still fell off D:
After work on Tuesday I went to Primark in Glasgow and saw these sexy black shoes in my size that actually fit! Only 3 left on the shelf, ontop of that they where on sale for £6 from £12! So I snagged them and when I got them to the till the cashier looked confused and then I got told they were £1! BEST BARGIN EVER~~ Unfortunatly it now means I may be quite a bit taller than Pudding who's already going to wear high shoes just to get near my hight... Why must I be so tall D':
30th July 2011: Arg Currently unpicking my Kneesocks skirt to resew it, I should have finished this over a week ago but I hate unpicking and I had applied for a job then a job interview then a job in the space of a week so I've been a bit AHGFDFV ish xD.
Also for this cosplay I have to wear a padded bra, so I'll be in a billion layers, I hope it's not too warm or I may die ;_;
19th July 2011: Death Book I desided to make the Death book because Kneesocks almost always seems to have it that n it should have been easy.
I got the book easily enough and I had the correct foam already in my house. So I made the oval and the bat/devil shape and I managed to glue little crossess and part of my hat for other costumes fine. The Death book however? Well lets just say it desided to spew out glue which in turned has burned one of my fingers badly enough that I have a blister. Thanks for that Death book D:
Despite this my book looks awsome already~ Now to paint on Death but I'll do that when I get a thinner paint brush ^_^
16th July 2011: Update The suits are almost done, thanks to Pudding because we originally agreed to buy beige suits n mod them but alas that wasnt ment to be and she went forth n got fabric, due to the distance between us I didnt have much help in the whole suit making dept. My wig still needs styled waiting to get the horn put on the wig first. I also found an old pair of glassess that I had 4 years ago that will suit Kneesocks well :D
We did our first make-up test yesterday where I got red'ed up which was interesting as I HATE people poking around my eye so I help flinching everytime Shae went to put on eyeliner ect.
Then both Puds n I got our fangs molded to our teethies~
Pudding n I however wont be wearing contacts, we had thought about it till we discovered Puddings allergy so she cant go near it without death so we desided life was better lol!
My hands are still kinda red and so is my face D: so glad our cosplays are for an event and we can go bathe afterwards!
