Cosplayer: PandoraCaitiff

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

22nd April 2013: Finished! Everything is now done. The only thing left is to try it all on at once and get some snaps.

If I can find or make a white beaded glasses chain, that will be added. But this is complete for now. :)

17th April 2013: Shoes! New shoes are great. Went with these ones - http://www.alternative-footwear.co.uk/divine-440w-red-patent-low-heel-mary-jane-court-shoes.html - instead of the massive heeles ones. They look great with the knee socks, and are much easier to walk in ;)

15th April 2013: Nearly done! Just a few little jobs left now! Mostly its finishing the Sufferer necklace (made from shiny silver card).

What I really need now is a full test with makeup and all.

8th April 2013: Waiting New blue lippy has been acquired. Haven't had a chance to do a new test though *fingers crossed*
And new wig and shoes have been ordered. Now comes the waiting game. (And the obsessively checking the order status!)

2nd April 2013: Yuk! Contact lenses are not for me! So on the day I'll be switching between my real glasses, and my white frames.

In other news I've done a makeup test, and everything looks great except the lipstick. Time to go hunting again :(

26th March 2013: Glasses Home-made glasses have been abandoned (may be recycled as Tuxedo Mask domino), and replaced by a pair of Poundland reading glasses with the lenses removed, and the frames sprayed white.

I'm having a contatc lens test this weekend.

26th March 2013: Wigs and things After some test shots, I've decided I defintely need a new wig. The one I've got is fine for Vriska, but is way too long for Aranea.

And despite the new outfit in the comic, I'm sticking with her default, because it looks great :)

10th December 2012: Thoughts on first test I think the socks will look better under the knee rather than over.
Definitely going to wear the Scorpio symbol as a belt buckle rather than a chest design (if only because it will get lost in my massive falsies!
And I need some awesome shoes. My Terezie deck shoes won't cut it. Maybe these: http://www.alternative-footwear.co.uk/dolly-50-red-patent-chunky-heel-platform-mary-jane-court-shoes.html

Definitely agree on the shoes you're considering in your journal they're perfect!

Thanks :)
I've replaced those awful "glasses" now. I also need to upload a pic from my latest makeup test!
