30th September 2011: Lots of little bits of love Well, considering my slightly crazy (i.e very crazy) month deadline, I have been slacking on the journal front, so here is a collective one dedicated to little bits. In the pic you can see my earpieces for the headphones, all shiny and painted with acrylic, then mod podge'd over. I have since placed a bit of fimo (filmo?) into the blue hollow, mainly because hearty is so light and I felt I needed something to weigh it down just a little, because the headband is also made out of hearty. Not that I'm too worried that it will blow off into the Thames or anything as I will glue hair clips to the underside of the band, but I just thought it would give it some more substance. Or because I like to give myself more work, who knows!
The funny little squiggly thing which is a broch is to be pinned on- it was bought on ebay but no doubt I would have struggled and ended up shouting at it if I was left to try and create one. Though I have repainted it to suit the colour scheme - I have this irrational hatred of Luka cosplays that are a very sheeny shiny metallic gold- I'm an ochre gold girl through and through (because thats how my boots came out! Haha, kidding, I think it looks warmer, especially with my dark pink wig).
The stripes are arm bands that were the result of a very productive afternoon, and I am kind of in a little bit in love with them. Mainly because they have the three main colours of her outfit in it, so every time I look at it I can see the end result more clearly! There seems to be lots of little accesories like this, so I still have a bit to go :)
