you could make a stencil for the blue make up :) so you apply it over the stencil with a sponge, may not smudge as much...

Hey, it's Wraith from the MCM forums? (No duh) Just thought I'd come by and check out the progress... It looks pretty cool! Especially the make-up ^-^ May I ask... Are you planning on painting every bit of exposed skin or just head to shoulders? Can't wait to see how this turns out :3

Progress Journal

Japanese Arts Festival 8D (Posted 7th January 2010)

So, my boyfriend's taking me to the Japanese Arts Festival, and we wanted to do a debut of a couple cosplay. Soooo seeing as I didn't really want to make more costumes for this year (already got 4 more or less in the works for this half of the year alone!) I decided to bring back Lugia for the masq, and we're going to make a Ho-oh gijinka costume for him :) so yeah if you guys go to the festival and see us and don't be afraid to come up and say hi!

It's very tempting to do a skit just what about lmao xD

Finished! In a way (Posted 23rd August 2009)

Sooo...I finally finished it xD

I glued the foam fins onto the leotard and then the tail and the feathers...and then I put it on. I seriously can't put it on by myself, I'll need someone to help me >.> lol

But the funny part was putting it on, and all these noises like snapping where coming from it and I was like "oh darn..."
The top fluffy bit has come almost off, it's only attached at the ends. It looks alright the way it is...it's just a bit annoying, but oh well. The only things I need to really fix are the feathers, and that's easily done.

So, my mum took some photos of me (without makeup, which is why it's not completely finished) and I don't actually look too bad...I think I might need to lose some weight, of course, but it's not blindingly obvious 8D yaaaay!!!

Update (Posted 20th August 2009)

Just letting you know I'm hoping to finish Lugia within the next few days :3 "hoping" having a huge emphasis >_>

Work done ^^ (Posted 30th July 2009)

So I finally attached the "wings" onto the leotard. It made me think a lot because it was very hard to do Dx I ended up grring under my breath, but I managed to get it done ^^ next thing to do is to affix the fins onto the back, and also the tail. Then it's a matter of sticking loads of feathers here and there, and walla! We have a Lugia xDD

New design (Posted 14th July 2009)

I updated Lugia's design, it's going to stay like that now xD
I mostly changed it to fit with the wig I bought :3 now it's more blue than purple, hur.

I gave the Lugia brown eyes because that's my eye colour and I has no moneys for contacts atm xD

Progresss (Posted 1st July 2009)

So the leotard is ready to be painted on ^^ And I'll need to sew the sleeves onto it. I would have taken a piccie but my camera suddenly died on me Dx nuuu.

I've also done a new design reference, since the actual costume has altered somewhat from the original design. This is why I love my own designs xD I can easily alter them if need be. I mean, Freya's design altered many times over the time spent on her ^^

Wings = done! (Posted 20th June 2009)

So being bored this afternoon I decided to start making the wings. I was wondering how to do them and a clever idea from CrystalNeko was to have the fingers all floaty floaty, to make it more elegant looking ^^

So I set to work making the pattern. Halfway across the wing it's closed, so it's like a sleeve, and then it opens out to the fingers. To prevent the fingers from fraying I did a zigzag stitch along the edges ^^ it looks pretty cool :3 I won't put the feathers on until it's fixed onto the leotard!

Yohohoho a Lugia's life for me (Posted 15th June 2009)

So my makeup arrived, a Mehron FX in a blue colour and a silver glitterspray. My wig also came, courtesy of Fifi (aka CrystalNeko) which was awesome :3
I need to rethink the makeup, methinks. My mother insists the white Snazaroo (that I previously used for Freya) is good enough (I wanted to use white Mehron FX but we'll see) but I need to redo the blue bits, because they look so messy >_< (maybe someone else could do them rather than doing it myself? xDD)
Also the glitter spray, although is supposed to be for the face, is not the best. It made the makeup run and didn't sparkle at all. Plus doing it yourself and not knowing where it will end up is not a good point xDD

The funniest part was when the postman came with another parcel while I had a white face. I said, "Don't ask." he just laughed and walked away quickly. xD
