London MCM October 2014 (Posted 25th October 2014)

Decided to break this costume out again. Wore a wig with it this time which looks much nicer and got some better photo's this time too :)

Finally at the convention (Posted 25th May 2013)

I had lots of fun at the convention. It was nice and sunny but had rather cold breezes throughout the day. I even managed to get sun-burnt down my arm. I had loads of pictures taken of me but sadly I cant find any of them :( This is the only one I have of me there which my friend took whilst I was posing for someone else. We were there from 8:30am to 6:00pm so by the end all I wanted to do was sleep.

I held on my fur with Large safety pins. I safety pinned my bottom layer of fur to my dress and tabard because it kept slipping backwards, then my top layer of fur to the bottom piece at the shoulders. I also used large hair grips to also hold on the mask as well as the elastic. I also just used an old woven bag to keep my stuff in which I tied around my waist.

Quick Finishing Touches (Posted 25th May 2013)

I really did a good job of not finishing this in time. I was about an hour late meeting my friend because I hadn't finished and was still doing stuff when I woke up at 4:30am. The main parts I did where super-gluing the foam to my mask (which my dad had spray painted black for me), sewing in some elastic to keep the mask on my head better and making a metal hook to hook my mask onto when I took it off my head. My mum sewed on the elastic and my dad made the hook so you can imagine we were all really tired and I hadn't even got dressed and sorted yet. When I got it all done I ran upstairs, got dressed and painted my face as quick as I could. Then me and my dad rushed outside to the car and then to the station.

I recommend that you give yourself PLENTY of time for making a costume because I really do not want to be rushing like this again. It really is not fun. It didnt help that I was at work during the weeks too so that gave me even less time but I got there in the end and learned my lesson.

Sans Wolf Ears (Posted 24th May 2013)

To make the ears all I did was get an old cardboard tube and cut two triangles out if it. This worked pretty well because the triangles were curved for being in a solid circle. Then I cut out two triangle pieces of black felt and red cotton to cover the cardboard. I stitched it all together and the sewed them onto the fur. It was 12:30am at this point so I was exhausted because I had to wake up in 4 hours to get ready for my dad to take me to the train station.

It really sucked at this point because when I went to bed there were still things that I hadn't got done yet >_<

The second layer of fur and finishing off (Posted 24th May 2013)

Day before the convention and I decided to leave the whole of the large part of fur till last. I cut out the shape that I wanted. making it slightly curved where it is going to sit on my shoulders. I didn't like how it hung flat on my back so I got my mum to sew in some darts to give it more shape. Then I cut out the lining fabric and stitched it all together. The sewing was pretty hard for this part but pinning to fabric to the fur was the worst. Me and my mum where both getting frustrated because it all kept popping out. We were relieved when it was all finished because it took hours and the convention is tomorrow. Eek I still haven't done everything.

I also stitched my fabric to the hat pins in my mask. Then had to think about making the ears. At this point it was getting near 11pm and I was really tired. Plus I had to wake up at 4:30am to get all sorted and dressed.

Holding the fabric to my mask (Posted 23rd May 2013)

I had no idea how I was going to attach my fur the mask. Lots of people said that they used super glue but I really didn't want to risk the whole thing falling apart at the convention. Plus my fur is pretty heavy. So in the end me and mum came up with the idea of using hat pins. I got a few and super glued them inside my mask, not down entirely so that I could sew the fabric to them. The I wasn't convinced that would hold it either so I also covered the base of them in modroc for more security then painted the whole of my inside mask black.

Theres also one right at the front of my mask that the picture doesn't show. This one is for holding the mask onto my back when I don't want it on my head.

Lining my fur (Posted 21st May 2013)

My mum bought me some nice fabric that looked like animal hide so that it was more realistic that it had been skinned off a wolf. Lovely thought. This was pretty difficult as I had to make sure all the fur was inside the pinned fabric. I sewed it inside out then pushed the whole thing through a gap in the top and then hand sewed up the gap. When I had sewn it all I stitched mt tooth necklace to the two points that went over my shoulders.

The convention is drawing really near at this stage seeing as its on the 25th.

Starting my fur (Posted 19th May 2013)

I cut out the first part of my fur to the shape that I wanted. This is the part that hangs from my shoulders.

Finished my mask (Posted 18th May 2013)

Ok finally finished it. The paint job isn't perfect but other than that Im happy with how its turned out. Just used whatever paints I had in the house. I plan on sealing it but don't have anything to do that with yet.

Almost there (Posted 16th May 2013)

Ok now Iv got all the sculpting done for my mask the only thing I have left to do is paint it. Finally. I added the strips of fimo by smoothing them on with some water. Then I just shaped them how I wanted. I didn't want them flat so I only pressed on them slightly to make sure they were definitely stuck on.
