Amecon 2010

14th July 2010: hand sewing sucks this is what happens when you go senile, you forget important things about an item of clothing. like trousers. they have pockets. and rikus trousers have obvious blue pockets, how could anyone miss those out

:D

so now starts the painfull task of hemming, then hand sewing the pockets on because im forgetfull
this is my progress after two days of getting angry and stopping every 5 minutes lol
i think cosplay has seriously killed off my braincells

9th July 2010: Wig after this i was covered in silver hair, as well as my room haha.
but yeah. heres the pic of the wig before (ignore my greasy face). it was much longer then i expected.

took me hours to try and thin this beast out. but im quite happy with it overall. i styled it a bit after cutting to make it look a bit more fly-away
