Bought the fabric~

I was very lucky with the tartan. They didn't have any at the first stall I looked at then when I went to the next stall they JUST had the exact amount that I needed left, phew! It's brilliant tartan as well :) I'm a bit iffy on the red fabric that I got, I keep thinking it's too bright. Hopefully it'll look okay when made into the tail coat.

It all came to a bit more than I expected to pay but that was probably because I had to get a lot of new thread.

Starting on this tomorrow! Woo!~

Got the wig!

Arrived in 12 days! WOW. Considering the shipping time was 2-5weeks and I'd used their free shipping that's pretty good. I love it when I get an item in the mail I'm not expecting XD Definatelly using Moemall again. The wig quality is amazing.

However it does need a bit of styling, basically cutting it a bit because it's pretty long at the bottom. The problem is I can't cut it too much because of the blended colour. So I don't know if I will end up trimming it or not.

But I'm so glad I have this now! If I get the costume done in time it'll be a definate Alcon cosplay.

Wig Bought!

Got it from MoeMall, which is the only place that seem to be doing 0048 wigs at the moment. It's a relatively new Anime with a small-ish fanbase so I'm not surprised. However the colour blending on these wigs is perfect. And from someone I know who bought their Chieri wig from there the actual item is so much better than the picture. I can't wait to get it! :D

Going to start on the making of the costume soon :)
