Progress Photo: Nearly-done jewelry and wig
With face omitted because nobody wants to see what the lights in my bathroom do to me. EWW. :P
The earrings are done, other than adding some hypoallergenic post covers. The necklace needs some additional painting on the two back pieces (that you can't see very well) and all the final embellishments, including all of the Swarovski bling :)
Gold painting has been a HUGE nightmare..for some reason the paint pen was bubbling up once it was dry. Turns out a lot of it was because it was getting old, and my newer pen seems to be doing the job, especially when I've used nail polish to seal the surface (It dries in about a minute...I would give it about 15 before painting over to really be sure it was cured. Still a LOT faster than any other sealer that I could use, and the paint is staying on).
I'll hopefully be able to do a proper makeup trial sometime this week. I found the perfect pallette, as well as a decent eyeliner pencil to use on my eyes (the closest I get to dying my eyebrows for a costume), but purple is not something I wear regularly as an eyeshadow, at least, not since I was a kid playing in my mom's makeup :P
