11th February 2014: Dress finished Delayed a bit as I was waiting on some lace for the bottom edge! The base dress material is ponte roma jersey, a thick jersey that has the right feel and weight for a knit dress! I'm wearing a black jumper underneath. There's the lace on the bottom and the cobweb detail was done by gluing sequin trim to it with hot glue (I did contemplate sewing it on buuuuut I was impatient. Hot glue seems to hold it up fine)
17th January 2014: Wig and Makeup test! Yesterday I spent the day cutting up one of the wigs into wefts, and then I sewed them into the other wig. It took ages but I'm glad I did it because it's lovely and thick XD couldn't resist doing a makeup test!
8th January 2014: Circle lenses! My circle lenses arrived yesterday! Here's the black ones I will be using for Hex Maniac :)
4th January 2014: In progress! Here is my progress so far!
Wig: I've bought two Charlie wigs from Coscraft in blue-grey; I plan to take one apart and sew the wefts into the other to make one big volumous wig! I have the headband already.
Dress: I have a black jumper already, and am looking at jersey knit materials to make the dress. I also have some black chiffon for the trim.
I got some nice shoes in the BHS sale! :D and have some fabric I can use for the reaper cloth, as well as a pokeball which will be brought by my friend Sisceal <3
