1st June 2007 - I stumbled upon the idea for this costume while spotting someone else's costume for Fujin while browsing coscom's photo galleries, and hit myself for not thinking of Fujin sooner. This will be the third costume I'll be wearing for Alcon in September. I think half of the attraction for this costume is the fact that there aren't too many pieces to this costume, a large majority of which can probably be bought and modified. I've already spent too much time and money on Garnet's costume to put huge amounts into another costume, so Fujin was ideal. Originally I was going to do Lulu from FFX, but that'd take even more time and effort than Dagger, so I'm saving her for later. I've ordered the most gorgeous wig that's perfect for Fujin, and I can't believe how cheap it is! Anyone looking for a wig on a budget, I'd highly recommend having a look at zhenna0036's shop on eBay. They have some brilliant wigs there.
I'll be nagging my Dad into making her pinwheel for me. He's good with things like that. I'll tell you this for nothing though, there's no way in Hell I'll be able to keep that eyepatch on all day. No depth perception - I can see myself falling over things in the dealer's room now!
12th June 07 - Made loads of progress since my last post! I went shopping all over Exeter looking for either fabric or a jacket I could modify. Everywhere I went, and it turned out that the jacket was in the first shop I went it. Anyway, I bought it (alot cheaper than I was expecting, too) and am Fujinising it up now. Spent half of yesterday doing it, and I'm almost done. Also got my wig now. Needs a little restyling, but it's looking good!
10th July 07 - No, I'm not dead, I've just been doing other things online. Anyway, I've managed to nag my dad enough to cut out my pinwheel for me from wood. The template took me ages to do, and I'm very proud of it. I'm in the middle of painting it now. Once that's done I'll be all finished with Fujin (apart from a little wig styling)
