I haven't been online in a while lately, aside from researching wigs for Val to use for James so this is a nice change haha...
This is a mish-mash of things I've been working on as of late. Tookie is from weeks ago, I finally have the materials to make his beak so I gotta get on that, but after I finish my SH:H stuff of course. I'm hoping to get pictures of that when I go home next weekend, so I am scrambling to finish some props for Val's Alex and my Holloway! I've since finished the cardigan's seams, aside from making/adding the buttons and button holes. That cardigan started out as a ginormous shrug that I completely cut apart and resewed into a shape that resembled Margaret's. You can't tell as this picture is bad quality, but it has that heather gray effect which makes it look almost splotchy, like the judge's. The skirt was made out of microfiber fabric that took me weeks to track down. Who knew that hideous mauve colors were not stylish!? Guess no one told Judge Holloway...and finally the shirt was bought, and I used part of the inside to cut apart and make the argyle-like design on it. I have the shoe bases which need modifications to go from short black pumps to red ankle pumps with a strap in the back. I am also working on 2 more props that aren't pictured, they're surprises for my Alex. I hope they turn out decently!
Sort of related: I finally found perfect material for Val's James jacket, and James' shirt too so that is my next big project, along with making Maria's cardigan/skirt. Her belt and coins are now done. I also officially hate the US quarter, how did anyone ever make the mold so detailed when it was so small! My detailing is just a bunch of raised blobs and an eagle standing on a log over olive branches :( It was very hard to make those coins, but for the sake of Maria's design they were a must.
Who knows what else will materialize while I work on things. The tie pictured is Richard Braintree's; I need to make his ammo holder too, and to finish Nurse Eileen :P Otakon is a ways off though, so I should have plenty of time to do everything so long as I keep working diligently.

HAHAH, I take it that is a good thing? I make really shitty MS paint collages every time I make minor progress as motivation to keep working. That's so funny; I bought it out in AZ and now I see JoAnns here has something that is a bit darker and wavy.
