AyaCon 2013

29th August 2013: Ayacon curse mark attempt 2 So after a lot of editing etc took this costume to Ayacon, I tried the curse mark version and it went ok, but it needs to be worked on!
I was going to try the 'blood' version too but got locked out of the room with the blood in it for my photoshoot, so I have regular San photos to upload instead :P

19th April 2013: Photo shoot! Although this isn't finished I decided to take a along some parts of my old costume and a couple of re-made things to a photo shoot the other day! It was a for Uni student's project so I kinda thought, I'd just go help out, see what happens and use it as an excuse to test my body painting!!
I made my white top the night before and it wasn't that great at all :p it definitely needs to be edited!!
The body paint went fine considering it was the first day I tried it out :) but it can be done better of course!
Some parts of my costume were missing (such as a Ashitaka's necklace for my curse mark version and my cloak for my general Mononoke version-I still took my old mask and hood for the sake of it)

I re-made my shoes (as I threw my last ones out after Amecon :P) they looked nice from the side imo but not as good from the front! It's just because of the way I made them.

8th April 2013: Starting prep for Mononoke 'curse mark' Bought a wig, some of the 'face paint' that I hope to use to make the curse mark and shoe insoles. I did start making the shoes around working on my dissertation but I need to re-do them as I don't like the way I choose to sew various parts together :P it's fine though, I find sewing relaxing and so re-sewing something small like a shoe is kind of nice!!
I've also made a hand-weapon out of card board/wood pieces which I'll hopefully continue to work on at some point!
