15th July 2010: Final Update (for now) This will be going ahead! Even if i'm very scared >_<
Bodysuit arrived on tuesday, fits me fine and is supprisingly comfortable. I think it looks alright but i'm still slightly worried about how it looks on me (as per usual lol) But it doesn't look AS bad as i thought it would so hopefully won't be too bad. Also gona wear my magic body shaper underneath lool although it shows through the suit a bit..but I feel a little better in it~
The Wig. Well my intial plan of sewing the extentions to the wig mesh failed as the front of the wig (for some reason) has a skin-top, so if i'd sewn them, I would have had to have done it futher back and it would have just looked like white highlights. So GraceyDarling helped me and sewed 2 extentions together for each side and ive now sewn them on top of the wig, so they go over the hair. It doesn't look great but you get the general effect I think and i'm just hoping it won't notice too much ^^' I think should I cosplay her again which I probs will then i'll have a go at dying it but for now this will do.
My Dad managed to find a belt I could use for her main one (x buckle) The round buckle had an engraved design on it so my dad filled it with epoxy resin and then sanded it flat (love my dad xD) and hes also painted it red and varnished it for me as well. Just need to add the black 'X' symbol =)
Decided i'm just going to use some black boots I already own to save on money =)Oh and have put a slit up the middle on the back of the trench coat. Mine didn't
have one and I thought it would be easyier to move in as well. For some reason the guys that made the bodysuit made the gloves fingerless...I have no idea why but ive noticed in pictures hers look green with white fingertips so i'm going to borrow sweeturk's Earl gloves to wear underneath the green ones ;)
And thats about it ^^ I'm actually really quite nervous about wearing this...I just don't want to look stupid I guess as ive loved Rogue for a long time and my body-loathing never helps when it comes to cosplay ^^' But hopefully being alongside Grace as Jean Gray/Phoenix will cheer me up ^^
