Kitacon 2014

7th May 2014: New Wig Decided to get a new wig as the base wig we used before wasn't too good to work with, was much thicker on top and very thin at the bottom. So hoping this will look better and frame my face a bit more.

25th March 2014: Scissor Blade Complete Painted with grey primer first then painted again using 'Hycote volkswagen' spray paint in 'Tornado Red'

24th March 2014: Scissor Blade Progress 2 All sanded and ready for painting. The handle has a small piece of doweling through it which connects to the blade, it also has a few screws for support.

24th March 2014: Jacket Almost finished! Just needs another coat of fabric paint on the 'crown' on the back and then all I have left is to sew the black ribbon down the sleeves for the stripe. I made paper templates for the front and my dad made the one for the back, traced around it with a tailor's pencil then filled it all in with white fabric paint. Each part has had around 3-4 coats with ironing in between to fix the colour.

Scissor blade is almost finished too, its all been attached together as well as being primed and had a fair few layers of red paint. Will see what it's like in the morning but all being well all it should need now is a clear coat to seal the paint. Exciteeeed~

23rd March 2014: Scissor Blade Progress Better late than never...my dad started work on my scissor blade today...hopefully i'll have it in time for Kita but we'll see.
Its all cut out of MDF, ready to be glued and sanded~

14th March 2014: Progress Managed to find a good template for Ryuko's scissor blade (credit to Kerse101 on dA)
So I simply scaled it, printed and joined them together. As usual my dad will be helping me make this so hopefully it will turn out well!

Varsity jacket arrived and is super comfortable. Made templates for the front which i'll just need to make into stencils somehow and then is just a case of painting them on. Also have some grosgrain for the black stripe down the sleeves which i'll be hand-sewing on.

Picture on the right is just to give you a general idea of how everything is going to look. Obviously not the skirt or shirt i'll be using XD

9th March 2014: Base Jacket Base Jacket bought, i'll be adding the designs myself using fabric paint.

1st March 2014: Shoes Oh my god, shoes.

23rd February 2014: Base Wig Base wig ordered, love the colour and pretty cheap plus its also in the UK which is a bonus.
The lovely SachikoYumi will be styling it for me as LOL me style wigs..nope~

11th February 2014: Contacts Ordered these, my first ever pair of circle lenses. Ive worn regular contacts before so hoping i should be alright with them.
Mostly got them so I can actually see as they are to my prescription as well as hopefully looking pretty!
