30th January 2013: Wig! Eeee now this is the big I'm really worried about!

I ordered my wig and extra wefts (just in case) from Arda, they were shipped on the 24th and I received them on the 29th! Absolutely amazing postage :O
But yes, beautiful quality as always, hence why I am so nervous to style it all now D:

I always see lots of Sora wigs in really dark browns but most of the refs are a nice brighter, warmer colour so I went with the Jareth and a packet of their Short Wefts in Warm Light Brown (AR015)
As you can see from the photo it's got such a gorgeous colour! :3 now I just need to decide on what method and style I plan on using for it...

Watch this space!

30th January 2013: Chain fail Annoyingly, after my last journal entry I managed to get myself some lovely HD screenshots and discovered that my plan for the chain strap thing wouldn't look right D: so yeah, that is being disassembled and I've bought something that will hopefully be the right size to work with. It's currently driving my insane that I can't find the right kind of chain! It's either the wrong shape or the wrong size, I found a perfect one in Wickes the other day but it had a black layer on it that I wouldn't have been able to remove, bugger!

Anyways photos!
Top: All mini crowns and necklace crown cut out (have since made a new necklace crown as the shape wasn't right)
Middle: Testing the layout of the crowns on the "chain" (also pictured is the chain I've ordered)
Bottom: Testing a new sandable top layer on some scraps to see if I can get a nice smooth texture on the Worbla (only one layer applied as a test, hence it looking a little uneven), then given a light coat of Rub'n'Buff as I adore the stuff and I have some lying around~

21st January 2013: Chain-y thing progress Getting fidgety about starting this so doing little bits wherever I can :D

Working on his chain belt thing atm, I've done all the chain loops now, just working on the many mini crowns on them!

20th January 2013: Zips! My big white zips for the playsuit/jacket arrived! :D

The red zip is a standard size open-ended zip to show the size comparison~ I'd have liked the white ones to be a little bigger (it was actually the smallest of 3 that I could have got) but it'll still be goooood

Now I need to decide which fabrics to use... Any ideas guys?

Wowee! You'll be so cute as Sora, can't wait to see this at Aya~~ If by some chance we're doing Final Fantasy when you're wearing this, then maybe we could get a picture together as it kinda fits ... xD
