Thank you for the showcase!
Uploaded a few pictures I forgot about!

Kimono (Posted 3rd December 2013)

Made from Taffetta in a red and black colour.
Added a super long fabulous trail.
Lines with dark red cotton
Roses made with flexfoil.

Mokono (Posted 26th November 2013)

Drinking buddy -> get.

Assorted progres (Posted 21st November 2013)

Top is the hair chain.
Left is the finished necklace....let's not talk about how many hours were involved in this O____O
I think it's pretty spot on to the reference. Considering I only have 1 to work from.

Roses were made by rolling ribbon and twisting it then hot-gluing. And repeating until I had an adequate number of hot glue burns....or until the roses were the size I wanted.

I also made a pair of earings with smaller roses and little dangled beads

Wig (Posted 21st November 2013)

cut up one of my Marceline wigs. Styled it into hime-bangs with the sharp pieces at the cheeky Yuuko has.
Hair loopies were polystyrene rings which were covered in paper mache, sprayed black and then black wefts glued around.Very fiddly.
They attach to the wig by wire.

1 (Posted 21st November 2013)

I was keeping this secret on my FB if you guessed correctly....well done!
Anyway because I'm mental I bought a ridiculous supply of beading supplies in an attempt to recreate her blingtastic jewelry. This is the beginings
