14th October 2010: Tiny update After debating with myself wether to bring Black Cat to expo I decided I WILL, I only plan to wear her on the Friday and thats only if I get time to get changed into her before going down to the Excel, after train rides etc.
I have done the tiniest bit of work on the wig, sprucing it up a little, I mainy brushed the tighter curls out to make them more relaxed & wavy rather than ringlets.
20th July 2010: LFCC lfcc was awesome, Black Cat seemed to go down really well, which is always good was a lil worried some people would point out Im missing the Double J boobs or whatever they are hahaha Only problem was the shoes, everybody I talked to had to listen to me moaning about my shoes. Sorry :P
I have about 6.5million blisters from them now, it was worth it.
Im going to be doing Black Cat again at Oct expo, Im going to improve some parts though. Going to look for a better fitting (basically tighter :P) catsuit and Im going to try and find some more comfortable shoes, and possibly try and add the paw shapes she has on her boots with upholstery foam, that isn't hard its just covering them in the same material as the boot which may be tricky :D
4th July 2010: Finished I went on a Black Cat mad one and completed her, so I could use my other days off to finish my other LFCC cosplay ^^
1st July 2010: Ahh Plan change again! I am bringing Black Cat to LFCC but I will do her on the Sunday so I have the hotel room in the morning to get ready, it takes alot of hard work to make this face look decent! hahah
I've also had to scrap the hair Idea mainly because I figured out I would have to buy alot of the synthetic hair to make it work and it was about 15quid for a little crappy piece so stuff that! Fur ftw! Im tempted to not put any fur on the boots though, I really don't want to ruin them lol
25th June 2010: FIT This is the fittest thing I've ever seen lol I love it :D Ignore my face I'd only been awake litrally for 6 minutes here.
13th June 2010: gr I couldn't be bothered to write another journal so I just did a video update instead:P
12th June 2010: 12/6 New catsuit is here and its a much better fit, it still has wrinkles in it you can't get away from them with this type of material but this one is a hell of a lot tighter fitting, which is perfect for me LOL
Got to add to O-ring to the zipper which I'll do later that will take 2 seconds, I've also been looking at what is the best way to add the fur/hair detail to the catsuit. Decided on the arm/leg pieces will be done from wefts of white hair extensions, I've seen people do it with fur and it doesn't look long enough. Saying that though, I noticed the fur around her collar is alot shorter and I have some fur left over from Felicia so I will use that around the collar. Abit of a fur/hair mixture ;D
I also completed my gloves/claws but cause I'm not very clever I forgot my hot glue gun would melt plastic claws so on some where they are stuck on it looks a little rough, you can only notice it though if your looking at it close up and in detail lol
(The photo is the old catsuit so ignore that :P)
9th June 2010: Update 9/6 Ok so I only did an update yesterday but ha oh well. I woke up this morning and my ID tag was here, so in my half asleep state I made the collar to go with it.
I basically had a strip of craft foam and covered it in shiny black pvc type material then I added a press stud so I could keep it on my neck without using pins (I do love using pins to keep things together cause Im lazy :D) The hardest bit was getting the tag on I ended up having to stab a hole in it with a pair of nail scissors lol :D
Super pleased with how it turned out and it actually fits :O!
Also I've brought the dreaded 6inch heeled boots and I've brought the catsuit (no way am I making one!) :D Should get them all very soon super excited <3
8th June 2010: Update 8/6 I got my wig today, and its so gorgeous I want to wear it all the time, afraid I'd look like a premature aging woman though with white long hair :D
It came super quick in its own little carrier bag and stuff, would highly recommend the seller :D
I've also started on the collar I've had a silver tag engraved with the words 'BLACK CAT' which I actually think it quite a sexy little touch :P I'm gonna start on making the collar soon with my spare black material I have around the house, it shouldn't really be to difficult (but it is me we're talking about).
I've also looked into some shoes, black cats shoes vary from white to black, I personally want them back with the white around the top, I've found some amazing boots, however they have a 6inch heel and abit of a platform, so I would be really really tall :D I'm not complaining though I love being taller than everybody :D I shall think about getting them, I do love them, they are so epicly heeled XD (Pic related)
4th June 2010: Wig & Mask I've started getting the basics of this outfit started, I brought a wig that I absolutely love I hope it looks as good in real life when I get it, it looks quite longer than Black Cat's, but I LOVEEEEE the long hair so I am not too fussed about that!
The mask was the main thing I was worried about, I brought one from xtremedesignfx, alot of people recommended them and I contacted them and sorted out priority shipping so I get it on time. This will be the dearest accessory ever, shall look sexy though!! (I hope ;D)
