25th October 2011: I am exite! YES I AM. I just finished making the shirt and I gotta say...I am very proud of it. It's probably the best one I've ever made as it fits perfectly and the zig-zag blue part turned out pretty neat. I'm very pleased!
I finished everything else over the weekend mostly, starting with the shorts. They were only the second pair of pants I've ever made so they aren't too great xD I need a belt to keep them up, I really hope my shirt is going to be long enough to hide it o_o
Finished the staff in two days, though it only took no more than an hour all together the make. I didn't have time to walk in the rain to buy felt for the beak so I just painted some spare craft foam yellow and used that instead. So with that, I have finished all the clothing and propness and just need to do some details, such as...
-Adding the circle things onto the shirt
-Adding the criss-cross parts onto the sleeves
-Adding the fake ties to the hood
-Possible adding the criss-cross parts onto the shorts (if I have time/can be bothered)
I also need to fix the hood at the back...an idea I had while I was really tired turned out to not be so great, and the result is the hood making me look like I have a hunchback xP Hopefully the fake ties will be useful for fixing that up, but we shall see.
6 hours till the anime/game/Japanese society's Halloween party! xD
