19th May 2014: Sleeves, be gone! No more armband slippage hopefully
12th May 2014: ta da Gesso then paint
10th May 2014: 1st layer Uh huh honey
8th May 2014: Let's sneak in quietly sorry it looks like it was taken on a toaster!
7th May 2014: I think I might have finally worked out the leg armour.. Fingers crossed D: pics sooooon
29th April 2014: Legwarmers Idk how much of a difference it makes in comparison to the makeshift ones from socks..looking at the art of her, they're not meant to be tight so I guess that's my answer
11th April 2014: Wiggggg g Couldn't sleep last night because of anxiety as well as having the Ponyo theme stuck in my head (you think I'm joking I am not) and was [over]thinking wig stuff. I'm gonna give my current one a bit of TLC with this tutorial:
http://deadandbornandgrown.tumblr.com/post/50976862781/rosenview-how-to-take-your-wig-from-gross-to]this tutorial. If I feel it really isn't right then I will buy the one I've been planning to.
Due to personal reasons I also have to rest up for the next few days so I can't be doing lots of drastic work on Yuuf :( May get mammy or my bro to help
7th April 2014: New headband Just pinned at the mo as I wanna try it out when I get my new wig for any adjustments
6th April 2014: Weathering x1 finished So this is the result after a 6 hour soak and leaving outside for 2 nights; I thought the dew that sets in evenings/mornings might help in someway. So I've now got the other glove in!
EDIT: Checked it after 6 hours, decided it needed more time soaking. I'll probably hang it out over a few nights as before
4th April 2014: Weathering It has begun ○_● Just with one glove atm as a test; there's about 8 old tea bags in there! Going to check on it in x2 hours time, if I feel it needs more steeping I will leave for a further couple of hours.
EDIT: Left it for about 6 hours in the end, now drip-drying outside. Havn't rinsed it out as some tutorials suggest because I don't want the shade to seep out plus it's going to rain on Sunday anyway xD Which should help the process what with the chemicals in rain~
23rd September 2013: Amour armour My armor has been through it a bit what with Expo and Hyper Japan so I gave it some TLC via paint c:
23rd September 2013: Headband improvement The green was too light for the material so I'm trying to get them to match
3rd May 2013: Weathering/Distressing Had some leftover black paint on a brush so thought I'd give it a go watered down on my shoulder guard. Idk if I like it/it made a difference or not
