I made the staff over 5 months by hand - see the journal entry if you want to see how i made it.

The first (lighter blue) costume i bought from ebay. The most recent darker blue one i made myself. I didn't like the bra top or the belt so i remade them: a new sports bra online and cut out the diamonds at the back and added jewellery wire for the details. The belt i bought a lot of cord for and craft glued them together and bought some buckles online (scuply-ed the main big one at the front that i did badly and wouldn't mind re-doing).

Boots I bought custom from ebay as well and i LOVE them, though i did have to cut the straps to size and punch some new holes.

Jewellery: I bought quite a few bunches of bangles online to get the right mix of colours. Earrings I bought on ebay as purple jade (i think thats what it was) in a fang shape and added sculpy to the top and changed the attachment type to sit right. The two necklaces I made: the bigger one i made from sculpy (rather badly) and beads from my craft shop (that i had to paint to get the right colours). The smaller one (crystal pendant) i bought a purple amethyst crystal online and got really frustrated trying to put the little fang grips on. It turned out pretty good in the end, though a little messy. The ball attachment i found in my craft shop.

Tattoos: I bought temporary tattoo paint online (the kind that you're supposed to have an airbrush gun for) that turned out pretty good. I had a LOT of trouble getting the LeCie tatt to work, since it required 3 stencils for the 3 different colours, and each stencil would rip the previous paint off. it wasn't perfect on the day, so hopefully i get this sorted out eventually - or buy a gun.

Hair on the day i used my own (duh) with lots of hair spray, braids and pink hairspray for the tips. It came out pretty good considering.
