1st July 2013: awwright My pink fringe came in the mail this morning, which meant I could finish my wrap! Which I did. And wowowow okay the wrap isn't that great, but the fringe is! It's lovely and soft and really fun to move fff. I will definitely be dancing in this costume!
Also knocked out my hoodie pretty quickly the other day! I bought a 10 euro tshirt-like dress from H&M and made the dress part of it into a hood and sewed it on along with pink at the bottom and such. That all went surprisingly smoothly, and it looks pretty authentic! I'm very pleased with it, it's definitely something I could wear out n' about. Only bad thing is it's obviously girls' clothes so I shouldn't take my jacket off while wearing this cosplay (but I will because HEAT)
AND! My wig came in, which was a big relief as I thought it was going to be late according to many mixed messages I was getting from eBay. But it's here and it's nice and it needs a bit of a cut!
tl;dr: I am making lots of progress and fringe is great
19th June 2013: cries because money this costume is becoming more expensive than I bargained for, and after booking a trip to the southern hemisphere, maaaaybe this spending wasn't a good idea! OH WELL, IT'S SYO TIME!
I made a proper start today too, got some laaavly fabric for the base jacket-thing and cut out everything but the sleeves for it and the same for the wrap! And using some of my Flynn fabric for the blue oops.
So progress is officially a go, and I hope I don't kill myself with this costume as I have so little time to make it and Jude oTL
12th June 2013: what even OKAAAAAY so I have purchased this wig for Syo that will double as my Flynn wig and perhaps work for other cosplays in the future too! And I feel this is worth mentioning because this is what made me decide "screw it, I'm cosplaying Syo now". Apparently it's a character wig from Amnesia and I am not expecting it to look like that for the price I paid, but we'll see! As long as it's fluffy I can deal with it and mess with it as I please. Otherwise...at least it'll be under a hat
Also I bought some fingerless gloves that I'll mutilate for pinkness and I'm buying a hat this week.
Annnd I was going to just buy a white hoodie and deal with it, but that's gonna be way too hot so I'm just gonna make it and buy the underhoodie instead (I am going to boil oTL)
(used wrong wig image too double oops)
