11th January 2010: Wig and hat in their current state Why do I always look like a camwhore in photos, you ask? Because otherwise, I look tired and drugged up 8D I know which option I will go with.
Yes, this is the current state of the wig and hat. Although Bonney's hat in the series is pretty unidentifiable as an actual type of hat, I decided to make it as a furry Russianish hat. Bonney has a real tomboyish vibe to her I think, so hopefully this will bring it out. This is a greyish brown furry hat from Primark that I coloured some different shades of green, I wanted to get it to a kind of green that looks like what natural green fur would look like if it existed, instead of a solid party green. At some point, I'll alter it and add light green trim, to get the shape and look of the original.
The wig... ah yes the wig. While very nice, it's also RIDICULOUSLY hard to manage. Seriously, you just have to make eye contact with it and it tangles. So I'm trying to find out about how to tame it at the moment. Once I've done that, I also plan to dye it a darker pink, as I'm not quite happy with how pale it is at the moment, for one thing because it's so pale it reflects light like nuts, as you can see.
But yeah, other than that, everything's going pretty well. The shorts are going nicely, I'll hopefully have them finished in a couple of weeks. Which reminds me, I need to pick up the extra bits for this, I'm hoping to have it to wear to ALCL in February.
