31st October 2009: 31.10.09 Got some photos but editing the eye colour :D!
Not happy with the boots and the wig, didn't have enough time to style it and tbh I think the wigs just crap, if anyone knows where to get better wigs from on ebay please do tell ^_^
9th October 2009: 09.10.09 I know I haven't been spending money on cosplaying much at the moment, my boyfriend went to uni in Cambridge which is like 500 miles or something away so I've been saving up to see him in my holidays which is two weeks time.
I got some spare money to gather some "basics" for this costume, so it might look a little decent for Halloween (I come back from Cambridge on the day of Halloween need to get dressed then go out...).
I bought some of the vampire teeth like scarecrow fangs, they basically have little putty stuff and you glue the teeth onto yours so you can speak better and they look more natural. I got the cheap version though cause I thought £15 was a bit much... I also bought this bun doughnut shaper thing so that might look better for the bun on the side of wig *fingers crossed*.
16th August 2009: 16.08.09 Im currently bidding on a black sleeved shirt off ebay what runs out today so hopefully it will be mine.
Since Im actually going to wear this for somewhere, Ive decided to try and alter it to look the same as Maria.
That means work on the wig X_X since its quite thin I'm going to buy the weafs or w.e you call them ahah and Im going to try and make it looks thicker and better when you flip it over to the side rofl!
Also better contacts, Ive actually looked into it this time and found contacts that work like real contacts and should change the colour of my eyes and there only £15 bargain :3
8th August 2009: ITS FINALLY HERE! I asked the person off ebay if they could do anything about it because I wasn't happy at all.
They sent me a new one and its perfect! ^^
31st July 2009: 31.07.09 Costume finally arrived and I'm really not happy with it. The seller didn't take the buttons off down the front, like I asked them too. The buttons on the sleeves and sides are silver anchor buttons... Nothing like roses!!
Also, the pattern of the black bias tape isn't completey on also! Annoyed!
The general size is good, but yeah annoyed ahah!
16th July 2009: 16.07.09 Bought a costume from e-bay, the only problem I had with the look of it they had addded buttons to the blazer, when I'm sure most people use velcro so you can't see them. I sent them an email asking for them not to add the buttons, if they do or not is another matter but now I'm just sick I just want the costume! ahah. I'm not sure if the arm band comes, hopefully not because I don't need it XD!
15th July 2009: 14.7.09 Yeah seen the month, a hundred years later.... and my costume still hasn't arrived. Went completey mad on the seller and they finally gave me my money back, so now I'm looking for a "cheap" in price costume, what is in my price range and looks good. Probably go through ebay this time, it's easier to get your money back that way >
10th June 2009: 10.06.09 My costume is now lost in the post... So I have no costume but the seller I bought it off is making me another one :D So maybe soon!
18th May 2009: 18.05.09 Wig arrived today, I added pictures! Still waiting on costume and I now need the wig styled too, it's coming together slowly.
10th May 2009: 10.4.09 Bought wig and gonna buy contacts now with ema :P now just waiting for everything to arrive, might buy fangs just depends lol
8th May 2009: 08.5.09 EMA didn't go in my bank account so will have to wait until money goes in until I can buy the wig and contacts ¬_¬ God dayum
8th May 2009: 05.5.09 My Cross academy necklace arrived off e-bay yey I wear it at school I love it that much ahaha XD
8th May 2009: 4.5.09 So I'm now just waiting for the necklace and the costume to arrive. Will buy contacts and wig on friday with ema!
