Progress

Started out in 2008 after returning from an inspiring visit to Midlands MCM Expo, and basically yelling at all my friends THIS IS AWESOME AND WE NEED TO DO THIS.

My first cosplay was Organization XIII Roxas - the coat was bought, the wig was the wrong colour (and probably a bad choice for a first wig to style myself), but all the same I completely loved it. After that, we were hooked. And so, our wallets were never to see money again.

...Oyy =___=;; So after 3 goes, and nearly £50 worth of Dylon, the fabric is STILL a pale-off-white. It just didn't wanna dye AT ALL. Which is highly annoying x__x;; But it's been a learning experience xD And has made me UBER determined to finish this cosplay D8< IT WILL BE DONE. So I'm-a go to the big fancy abakhan in wales, see if they have anything there... And try the fabric shop in bham too~! I need to go down there for Captain fabric anyhoos o3o;; Gawddamnit Erika, you and your awkward charcoal grey outfit >8C

Whelp, the wig has been styled (just needs some touchups), the bag has been made, the contacts and the shoes have both been purchased... I have all the patterns and fabric needed to carry on. I just need to buy this darn dye *__*;; I'm putting it off because I don't know exactly how much I need... and that stuff is expensive Dx;
Well, I'm-a measure up the patterns tomorrow before I go to pips, so I'll have the knowledge and can order away... Then I'm off 8D!!~~~<3

Well, I just ordered the wig - officially begining this cosplay!!

I had some debate with myself over colour, and decided to go for a darkish brown - not too dark or black however!! Cause I like the contrast of colour~~<3

I spent many hours (when I should be revising) trawling ebay for a suitable wig >.>;; In the end, I decided to go for SouthPanda-8, cause Pip ordered her Barma wig from there and it was lovely :3 I just hope the colour isn't too light >.>;; I can darken it with FWink I suppose o.o

It's curly (therefore longer), so I had enough hair to plait ^^ Also, I can re-use it for lolita outfits :D!!

*squee* Can't wait for it to arrive!! I miss wigstyling xD
