29th October 2012: Still not finished >O< So this was still not finished, leaving me dissapointed and annoyed with myself. I tried to get as much done before london expo but I still had bits to do due to less time than i thought I had, problems occuring and having to get more ribbons. I've put up a photo of the majority of what I got done up to and the last bits I had to do at expo.
I still need to do the gloves, improve on the sleeves, sort out the belts on the corset, FIX the hair pieces which keep breaking on me, sew down edging of boots, paint parts of the boots again, make better hair drill curls (need someone who can attach them in properly as I don't trust myself with that part) and hopefully sometime in the future make the rifle.
3rd February 2012: The Start Well I've made a bit of a start on Mami, though it's only really been the boots and shaping some wire for her soul gem hair piece form, with researching into how I can make my normal wig be able to have a back parting. There's still bits I need to buy for the costume, but I've got the main materials sorted, I just need to set myself some proper time to sort it out aka when I've gotten my Uni work on a good roll and mainly after the group exhibition is done in March.
The boots have been cut to shape and the sole has been painted white, though I realise I should have left that until I have spray painted the creamy/beige part, so I'll just have to cover parts as best I can and make as little mess possible.
