7th May 2010: Painting the wig... green! I've spent th past few days going over the gray base wig I had with different shades of green, a little bit of blue and even some yellow and lots of black sharpies. I've tried to get all the roots coloured, as well as some nice streaks. I'm still working on the actual styling though, it's hard to do gravity-defying stuff! :P I need to adjust the curls a bit, and make the fringe do the flick better, but atleast the end is in sight!

I also need to practise my otokoyaku-makeup A LOT! And start the jacket, which I've been unable to find a good fabric for and is completely panicking over... *sigh*

17th December 2009: Hmmm I need to style my wig. With all the xmas shopping I can't get the green extensions yet, but I will style the fringe and what-not, and get some pictures taken eventually. ^______^ In my generic Tod. :P I'm itching to start sowing again so hopefully I can get my butt to a fabric-store and get started soon! :D

25th November 2009: Halloween pics... UP Ok so I never actually got any GOOD shots of me from Halloween, like where you can actually see my jacket and boots but oh well. I'll get some done when I get back to Sweden. :) I'm bored though and feel like uploading SOMETHING, so here you are.

30th October 2009: Halloween Version! Alrighty theeeeen! Since I have the need to claim my rightful place as TenTens Tod I'm starting this costume best I can. My wig will arrive tomorrow, and although it'll need a shitload of styling I'm wearing it as it is for Halloween tomorrow. ^____^ I plan on buying some greenish extentions for it, as well as flicking the fringe up; otokoyaku-style! But for now it'll do. I'll put some pics up, but it's not gonna be a specific Tod outfit since this is just for Halloween and it's a bit of a rush job. So see it as a generic Der Tod. :P It should be dark and sparkly though, and I have the wig and boots. ^_______^

Yes indeed. I figured I might as well put it up, seeing as I have the boots and bought the wig today. :P

If my wig arrives in time (today or tomorrow) I'm sort of throwing together a half-arsed Tod for Halloween. It'll be an un-blinged Tod but hopefully a Tod none the less. With generic clothes. :P

Oh that's a shame! I guess that's cuz we had such a short skit, the normal limit is 2-3 min (or something like that) and ours was only about 1.40. :) Thank you though! ^_^

Oh I just saw the performance on YT, thanks for the link above. :)
Very very cool. Well cosplayed guys, strong emotions in the performance there. And the audience were behaving ^_^ It's nice to see a strong emotional skit being appreciated as well as the funny ones.

Yeah we were a little bit worried that the audience would get bored or antsy, but we tried to keep it short and pour our soul into it. ^_^ Thank you! <3

As long as there is enough visual movement in a skit I think the audience are willing to go with an emotional performance.. You did it right, plenty of visual changes (well thought out) and nicely rehearsed. I think audiences can tell when you put a lot into a performance and respect what you are bringing. :)
