13th November 2011: Wiiiiig So I have my Legolas wig. I can't style it just yet for a number of reasons, but I've combed it all back ready and tied off the bit that will eventually be his braid.
I was gonna get some clip-in braids for the side ones (as I don't have that much faith in my abilities) but I can't find any small enough so I'm just gonna have to hope I can manage it myself, as I've NEVER braided hair in my life. Found a good tutorial however, and the website actually had a "Legolas Braid" section, so... y'know, that's handy :|

I already want to live in this wig. :|

2nd November 2011: Elven Ears So my ear tips arrived in the post today. They don't blend at all well with my skin tone, but bearing in mind that I WILL be making myself paler for the cosplay, it shouldn't be too much of a problem (and I can always coat them with the same colour I'll be using for my skin).

The only problem I do have is nothing to do with the ears themselves, but more down to the fact that I hate having things on my ears/face (except paint, as I've taught myself to ignore it). I can see myself having to wear these for several hours each day/night in order to get used to them by next year.

I have a feeling I'll be using some theatre glue or something on the back of my ears in order to ensure they stay on, but they don't fall off easily so it'd just be some extra support (and therefore won't be the end of the world if I can't get the glue in time for whatever reason).

Just gotta make sure I remember to take them off before I go outside anywhere...

2nd November 2011: Progress Begins So I've started this cosplay even though I won't be wearing him for an entire year.
Just purchased the ears and the wig, and I'll be buying some clip-in braids for the ones that curl behind his ears as I'm USELESS at braiding hair (and they're more likely to be on show than the one at the back).

I found a perfect wig for him - the colour is absolutely perfect and it's the same style of wig as one my friend has (she can throw it around the room and it'll still look perfect). I'm going to have to cut it a little, I think, but hopefully that should go well.

I'll get some photos up once the wig arrives and I've styled it.
