Assorted progres

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

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.

I was keeping this secret on my FB page....so 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
