22nd May 2013: Belt Buckle [by kadaj006] Just to show off the belt buckle, made for me by kadaj006 out of Fimo, and painted with spray paint

17th April 2013: Shoes I ordered the shoes I'll be using as the base for the boots this morning.

They're red shiny, so they should work pretty well.

I'll be using Ranma1-2's tutorial for using the boot covers, and my very dear friend Selph will be helping me hugely!!

15th April 2013: Lights by Kadaj006 My lovely hubby-to-be made the lights to go in my Ironette costume.
The chest piece has 2 LED lights in it and the hands each have one.

I have to job of attaching them to the gloves, but I just wanted to share this picture with everyone.

And Thank You kadaj006 for your help. I love you <3

2nd April 2013: Shorts Tiny shorts are TINY

Seriously like underpants!!

14th March 2013: Wig My wig arrived this morning!
I was actually shocked at how quickly it arrived as it was coming from China.
But arrived in just over a week, and it is stunning.
Its absolutely gorgeous! And is the exact colour as my own hair, which is what I wanted as the idea for this costume is that I want it to look as if it is me wearing the costume, not me cosplaying someone else.

11th March 2013: Shapes Got all the basic shapes for this costume cut out tonight.
Had a little trouble getting the top to be completely symmetrical, but luckily, super-Aunt was there to rescue me!

Super-Aunt kindly volunteered to sew it all together (mainly cause it gives her something to do, and I'm not very good on a machine)And then we can shape and size it correctly

5th March 2013: Wig I ordered the wig shown in my last journal entry

I figured expo was getting closer and closer so if didn't get a move on it would sneak up and I'd have no wig for my costume

15th January 2013: Wig I was thinking of not wearing a wig for this costume, but then I decided it might be a good idea to anyway because otherwise my own hair might just end up looking flat, and least with a wig I can add a little bounce to it.

I decided I wanted a red one, to kinda match my normal hair, just a bit longer, and curlier. I found this one, and thought it looked really pretty, so this is the one I'll be getting unless I find a nicer one beforehand.

Its from eBay, so i'll get ordering it once I've got the fabric in a few weeks time.
