Litchi Faye-Ling

Cosplayer: animeaddict

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

21st May 2011: Wiggy wig Well man that wig is heavy now. And longer than I am tall too.

Just got 6 buttons to sew on now and litch is finnished ^^

2nd May 2011: Glasses Maybe a little too perfectionist?

Spent about 3 hours: sawing through the top of my old glasses with a scissor blade; removing the lenses; cutting, sawing and burning the ends as short as possible; and finally gluing the lenses back in, just because otherwise I'd've been mightily annoyed at the tiny detail.

And I broke three of my nails in the process :C /not impressed

29th April 2011: Pole of DOOM AAAARRRRGGGHHH

Why do I paint things?
I sawed the pole in half, glued in an inner tube, tested sliding the two parts together and it worked fine. Take them apart, paint them, once it's dry try to slide them together again. Doesn't work. And not only that, snaps the inner tube, partially inside the second part.

Rage enused but I did manage to fix it with a lot of superglue (that is now also bonded to and burning my fingers) and ducttape. It also grew a few inches because of that.

25th April 2011: Poley pole pole pole~ Finally getting onto making her pole.
185cm long approx, and am gonna have to paint it around exam revision ><

Given up on trying to make it easier to carry, am just going to have a big awkward prop with me.

29th March 2011: Poles and Pandas Ooo shoulda updated this when I started... Anywho, cosplay itself is mostly finished, as are the shoes and wig (Bar a few leaves, and I have glasses anyway so that works pretty well) all I have left is the Panda for her hair (which is sitting on my lap waiting to be assembled) and her pole.

Ah the Pole. Am not quite sure how long, or what out of, it should be made; and how in gods name it'll be possible (if at all) to get on the tubes as well.
I'm about 5'8 in with her heels on, so any suggestions at length, fabrics (bearing in mind I'm poor) and ways to make it public transport friendly'd be much appreciated. She won't be complete untill it is...

We'd best be gettin' that taos face meets boob shot now I'm actually making this xD
And am just currently wondering if it'd be plausable to make it detachable in the middle or sommat, cos if i want it taller than me I don't fancy taking a 6foot pole on the underground...

Cheers m'ladylime, I shall be looking out for you most assuredly, V-13 is bar far the coolest :3

You look absolutely great as Litchi, and you have an immense amount of courage to do that cosplay considering it is quite revealing.

For the pole, you could make it have a screw together section in the middle like a pool cue. Could be possible with two pieces of plastic piping. You could get a slightly thinner section of piping and glue it into one end, while leaving the other end to slide onto it. Then you could carry a bag or somesuch to conceal the prop for when it's needed.

^//^ Thankyou! Though it's gonna be more clothes than the last expo, so less courage more sanity ^^;

I've been wondering about the screw together idea for a bit now, but the two sections within each other may actually be far more logical, and probably cheaper too...

Be lookin' forward to seein' you as Ragna in october :3

No problem. I had a look at your last cosplay. You certainly have a lot of courage for your cosplays.

Ragna's going to be difficult, But I hope to do it right.

The staff looks really good. I hope the inner tube works out for you.

As for being 'too much of a perfectionist', there's no such thing. The glasses look Awesome, really. You took quite a lot of time to make them look good. Just keep them safe (like in a case or something) so they don't break.

Thanks ^^ I've just tackled transportation by recruiting friends, got litchi's and two other staffs of similar length to carry there, each person gets a pole 8D

Again thanks for the compliment, am probably just going to fling them in the same case as my actual glasses untill I find a spare one for expo.
