I was going to wear the lighter wig I bought a few days before the convention, but when I cut bangs into it, they started to jump out all over the place, and I didn't have time to fix them. :/ So, darker wig ahoy...just glad I had a back-up.
Will I ever finish my tail? The world will never know. Well, the method I used for painting isn't waterproof, so it's for the best.
There are a lot of small things that need touching up on this costume, but I'm pleased with it overall. Don't think I'll be putting too much effort into renovating the issues it has; I'm just glad I did a decent Spice and Wolf tribute and I can move on.
Glad I brought it to the NorCal Fall Photoshoot, since it got so much more recognition there. I got some much better photos of it, along with my new wig--which was a pain in the butt to style, lots of hot water and slow snipping, but I'm really proud of how the bangs turned out.
