9th March 2013: Sewing disaster I'd done my best to avoid using jersey fabric for my cosplay (a fabric it seems most Sailor Scout cosplayers use) due to the fact I thought it would look terrible, be awkward as hell to use and be incredibly uncomfortable without an overlocker (which I don't have). However, using the fabric I was originally going to use could not have gone worse. It's the wrong size and I can't alter it the right way without making it look odd. So it's looking like next opportunity I get I'll be buying a couple of meters of white jersey. Oh the joy -.-
2nd March 2013: In the making So after losing my pattern pieces, it's looking like I'll have to make them again from scratch, but oh well, it's doable.
Also, the 2nd wig I ordered (after the first one getting destroyed) is a much better colour than the first for the live action, but also a lot smaller. Gonna need a huelluva lot of pins to keep it in place, also thinking some sort of spray to catch the bits of my hair that will inevitably be on show, just to make them a little lighter.
Also, I want to make a Luna to come with me.
I ordered my accessories from a company in America. The tiara is amazing, I love it!
15th November 2012: Fabric shopping Just realised I have much more white fabric left over than I thought. So all I need to buy when I go shopping either Monday or Tuesday is the blue and pink.
I'm ordering my tiara, earrings and odango's (is that right?) in the new year. Also I've decised on boot covers to actual boots. Cheaper and easier to get in my size
5th October 2012: It's here! So my wig arrived in the post a week early!
I love it, and it fits so well. The only problem I seem to have is the base of my hair showing at the back. I dye my hair black so this could be a problem. If I actually go through with stripping the colour from my hair like I've been saying I would for about a year now, I may be Ok. If not, I may just get blond hair highlights at the base
That would be stange :S
26th September 2012: Got a wig on the way ^^ I'm changing this now to in progress because I won a wig on ebay today! the hair on it is so long, and the style looks great. I was going to put off buying a wig for a while, but I fell in love with this one, and it was a bidding with only one left as opposed to a shop with many on buy it now, so I had to have it.
Also, I've decided to wear this one to Gemucon next year too, so I need to get it started.
