14th August 2014: Tiara Saga Part 2 So I took a stanley knife to all those cheeky wee extra bits of worbla floating around and made sure all the edges were parfait. Originally I was going to find something to shape it round because that's what every tutorial ever said you should do when making a round object. BUT I am impatient and wanted it to be round NOW! So I trawled through the flat looking but everything was too small, too big or the wrong material so I just went crazy and did it without a base. REBEL. But it turned out ok! It's not perfectly round but you wouldn't know at all if I hadn't just told's fine nobody will read this, right?

anywho next step is priming and sanding and painting and blinging. I can't wait to bling it up. My bling is ready and waiting.

13th August 2014: Tiara Saga Part 1 Woah, what is this "journal" function? What is this "cosplay"? What is this "journalling my cosplay progress"? PEOPLE JOURNAL THEIR PROGRESS!? PEOPLE STILL COSPLAY!?!?!? I'm just kiddin'.

So I was determined that this tiara would have some of the pattern that is in the artwork for Aurora. Last time I made my tiara out of foam which did the job but wasn't overly sturdy. So this time I opted to give worbla a try! Thankfully whilst the size and shape of her tiara changes from picture to picture the pattern mostly remains the same. I just kind of went for the size and shape I liked most. I used a craft foam base and to add details I used string, beads and shaped cut out from foam. Ok so really the details are actually embossed in her tiara but jesus, I'm only one woman and my skills/time are limited so we're gonna have to make do with the patterns being raised.

I, terrifyingly, heated up the worbla til it was a wee bit flimsy then placed it on top of the foam base and used various pokey objects (technical term) to bring out the details. I then screwed up and heated it up too much and there was a bubble and I panicked and fucked up shit but it's ok I fixed it. Kinda.
