The Back Looks Nothing like This

The Back Looks Nothing like This - Pet Shop of Horrors (Tokyo) - Cave Swallow
The back is still crappy white felt with lonely-looking abalone buttons. But it's coming along! I'm delighted to find that once you get a nice groove going, even this much beading goes pretty quick.

For a given value of 'quick', anyway. I think my 'quick' would fall into most people's 'for serious completely not quick at all wtf'. :D

(Still comin': pearl ropes, another batch of tassels, rim dangles. And, oh, the entire rest of the costume.)

This earns a salute for being such hardcore awesomeness, and making me resolve to work harder on my bead phobia! xD

Ooh, this looks gorgeous! ^_^ When I was reading that side story, I thought the headdresses looked like they would be fun to make. You've done an excellent job on yours so far!

After reading the part with the Cave Swallows, I can already tell this costume will be fabulous.

It looks so elegant. I admire all the work you put in it so far.

Those seed beads are basic 8/0 Czech glass. They're rather less uniform up-close, believe me. I'd have -loved- to use Miyuki.

Gorgeous GORGEOUS bead work! I can't wait to see this finished. It's going to be very pretty. ^^
What kind of seed beads did you use? They look really uniform. Are they Miyuki beads?
