I FINALLY FOUND MY RED RIBBON.

It was at the bottom of the bag with all the fabric and patterns and whatnot. ...I guess that kinda denotes where I am with the sewing stage, huh? >___> But yeah. Wrapped it around the handle of my sword now. It looks so much nicer Smile


Laid out the fabric now and am yet to iron it (b-but I just want to launch straight into laying out the pattern... D:) and then the blood, sweat and tears shall commence.

Spoiler:
 

By the way, that white fabric is only folded in half. There's at least four metres there. Oh joy. ;3;

@kiki Yeah, I ordered some foundation online that is too dark for me so as a result I came out looking orange. (Speaking of which I used to LOVE formal time - everyone turned into Oompa Lompas)


My progress was breaking both of my serger needles and only having one left which means I can't sew anything dkjnfmfss!!! And I have scoodies I have to make and am going to Auckland tomorrow ;____;
On the plus side it gave me a chance to rethread the machine

So I did this instead:
Spoiler:
 
The top bit is the axe -made of a foam board +craft foam + foam board sandwich. I glued them together at first then realised that that would make spray painting the foam board and craftfoam damn near impossible so pulled them apart (luckily the glue was still wet!)
The coney things are for the drills in my Ymir wig (there are 6 of them!!) but thanks to kyokyogirl's post re her Yugi wig I now know I can use PVA for that.
Now I am going to paint the cone things with some sealant so I can paint them a blondey colour to pretend they don't have foam in the middle if it shows through the hair. Then do some test painting on craft foam before I commit myself to a painting disaster.
ALSO, I found the craft knife I thought I lost after spending $4 on a new one sweatdrop

On the topic of PVA glue, doesn't spiking glue and PVA seem to be basically similar.

Am so bringing hand sewing to the games night tonight!! Also Sakura Staff just needs gold painted on and re spray painted and it's done!! This cosplay might actually be done before chchgeddon but better not jinx it.

Very nearly killed my Hotaru wig, but it's actually alright. Nothing that a little hairspray can't fix. Similar with Alice-turned-Shinrei wig. I actually cut it and it looked good!

Dad's cutting up the wood for my Tengu geta now (yaaayy). Now comes the practical part - learning to walk and stand in them. Very Happy

Most of my main parts of Sakura are done. I've got the sleeves in my coat and the heming or that and the cape are happening on tuesday after work. That means all I have left are the boot covers, capelet/breast plate and hat. Yippee!!

THE SHOES THEY ARE 80% FINISHED OMG YAY

I walked in them for a bit. I did pretty good 'til I tipped over forwards 8Db That was due to a slight miscalculation in where I drew in the dots for the holes to be drilled in for the laces haha. Still need rubber strips for the bottom, probably chop off a bit from the bottom so it tilts at a 90 angle and paint it. Uh and tie the laces in properly. I can't do it myself ;;;

Seraphik is amazing! (But we all knew this already.) Do you use glue to seal the foam, or something else?

Nearly finished fixing up my Kaname skirt, it's going to be alot more flattering now. About to do more on my Calintz pants mockup. (Why am I so lazy? There's no time \o/)

I got Maya's wig. It's too big for my head. WHAT IS THIS. Decided I'll cut it on the day - my hat makes it move far too much >__>

Sewed a little bit of Maya's skirt, found out the petticoats are now less poofy, and made patterns for Rani and Lily 8D.

... And then the rest of the time I was lazy. So yeah. 8Db

Added more yellow hair to Yugi wig. So now the fringe doesn't look so thin.
