11th May 2009: closer closer... On Sunday I made good progress on Paine I got the hat nearly done, lats night I was just waiting for the little gold dangly things to dry before I attached them and I also need to pick up a blue sharpie to colour in the fur then thats done. The sleeves got the last bits of glueing done, I just need to cut in the ripped flamey parts and reinforce the collar (which doesn't want to stand up) with some wire, and add some poppers to attach it to the bra. The bra just needs taking in, I made it a while ago and seem to have lost an inch or two of flab so it's looking a little loose, but its just a case of moving two poppers round slightly. The shoes are nearly done, I had to pick up some yellow ribbon this morning as I had only bought white and orange (I totally forgot the yellow stripe) so will attach that later this evening. My pixie shoes do look a little crap, but at least they will be comfortable! Fishnet gloved turned up the other day too (was cheaper and easier to buy them) which just leaves styling the wig (should take 20mins) and papier maching the staff which I would like to get done over the next couple of days! So Ideally Paine will be finished tonight pending staff which I'll get done by the end of the week.
