10th February 2011: Wig Bought a wig! Nice colour blonde mix, and doesn't look too bad on me except for me just looking weird as a blonde in general. :p
Dreading having to cut and style it though..
15th January 2011: Staff and fabric The basics of the staff are nearly done.
I need to
- smooth the sawed edges out with wall filler and sanding (and repeat wall filler etc)
- get an actual staff to fix the bottom and top arts on to
- paint it all gold
- weather it a bit
- make the jewels, for which I've got casting resin etc, but not the right moulds yet..
And I've just ordered fabric, with a very good discount (which makes up a bit for getting a good, but expensive wig). It's a polyester & viscose mix, which is not ideal, but it will be crease-free at least - am a bit sick of costumes going crinkly.
Still haven't decided if I'm going to paint the designs on, or applique..

The staff progress is looking very impressive. Can't wait to see it finished.
Amy-Lou: We actually went outside to try and take photos in the wind, but that didn't turn out too well...
