You mean tight yo make gloves for her?

I saw a Spectra cosplayer in the crowd at Con-G. I didn't see her again to ask if she was coming to AN sadly.

Should we book a small location photoshoot. I get the feeling that there will be more cosplayers coming to this outside the forum.

I'm things TT1 or DT2 at 2pm on Saturday.

I can set it up/run it if you like.




Also super excited how well the ivy is going. Started them last nice and got the arm cuffs done.
Started on the leg cuffs but had to stop at 11:30pm lol

The made out of 14 gauge wire (12 gauge for the leg ones to the they defy gravity), Clear 1/4 vinyl tubing, Ivy leaves I got from Michaels and floral tape.

I have to paint them lighter as they are all dark green but they look like the real deal for the most part. O_o

Need to make the necklace and the lone left side earring the same way.

Got my wig and contacts at my parent's place for Draculaura, so I'm happy about that! Fabrics are ready, save for the fishnets which I'm picking up later this week. Aaaaand... God only knows about those boots. Anyone have any ideas?

You don't have to order it from these shops but you can get this one and paint the heels, add the belts and replace with black laces.

@Ani_BEE Thanks for the suggestions! Those are definitely up my alley, I just have to find the funds for them now, hahha.

I've tried on my wig and my contacts- they're perfect for the costume. And I've started on my vest. Sadly a terrible pattern choice has me fighting to alter it to fit nicely, but I'm sure I'll have it figured out soon enough!

@Kawaii_Omi

Looks fantastic so far!

So fun! The fur you found looks sooo nice.You goinf with the production art i see as well. The doll has her boots exposed. lol

Also another detail is that she has a skull key hanging of her side pouch you don't see int the artwork.
For some strange reason this photo is flipped. >_<
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3308/...1bb7378a_o.png
http://www.fanpop.com/clubs/monster-...-picture-photo
But the Monster High skull is on a chain.

Also it you wanted to add some sparkle to your tights Kawaii_Omis you can use hair spray and glitter.
http://www.moustachic.com/2011/12/di...er-tights.html
Or sparkle hairspray.

I can't find a photo online but Legs Avenue make a pair that is Light Blue with Silver shimmer or Pink with Silver Shimmer. Their called LUREX TIGHTS.

For the person doing Robecca You might want to recommend doing a body suit instead of trying to paint all those metal joint details in body paint.

My shoes are coming along, I'm slightly terrified to walk in them (for fear of tripping on the front lips or chipping them). But once finish I'm going to practice walking in them as they are platforms.

I hope to have the clay work done tonight to take a photo before spending the time painting them.

Actually Abbey's shoes are not supposed to show. You are supposed to tug the leg warmers down to cover her boots. And I'm sure the Robecca has a swell idea of how she is doing her cosplay, if she decided to do her. Same with Kawaii_Omi. Though I am quite sure she isn't doing the glitter route.

I got the impression as well, but the MH boots are so big on the doll the leg warmer just don't cover past the toes unlike human proportions. lol
Abbys glitter skin and shimmer tights are so cool. Just give out options, so please don't take offense.


I just found a lot of difference in the construction of the dolls verses the artwork for them. The elements are the same but just the details changed/added to the dolls. Venus definably has some pattern changes the I like more in the doll.

I though I'd be done the teeth but the whole construction have been only one layer at a time so far to allow for the clay to cur before doing another section.

Tonight is the top row of teeth though! I'm still think of paint the ivy on the heel green instead of light pink, why hide the details that way. lol

Edit: Them Teeth (Clay2)! I'm not sure it I want to build up the lips some more but I will have to prime these with acrylic Gesso first as the paint I'm using reacts differently to the clay it term of staying power.

I was talking withe the ladies who run doll north today and they are super excited about having Monster High panels this year. I think one is on the dolls themselves and one is on how to do faceups and ah.... hair plugs? Something like that. Doll North is going to be huge this year with the market running all three days as well. Plus they have 3 South Korean doll companies coming to sell their wares!

Tell me about it Kawaii_Omi! The patterns are so small on screen and on the dolls to try and go by.

My spoonbucks finally cleared yesterday so I got $34 off my Venus Fabric order I placed at Spoonflower! So it came to $71.20US including shipping for the shirt and legging fabric. This is the last of my fabric needs for her costume. I just need to get some elastic for the legging now.

Finished priming my boots over the weekend (with 5 layers of gesso) and started paint them. I used a shade called Rio Red but it turned out WAY to warm for a neon pink, My eye felt like their where burning looking at it after 2 coats. So I've mixed it with Hot Pink (which is not what I consider hot pink) to tone it down and cool the shade down s the hot pink was a blue based pink. the boots won't bee as black light reactive but I like the new shade more in person. lol I will have about 3 layers on the body to go and 6 on the heel area to paint pink before moving to the neon green.


Hair plugs if I go this right is when you punch the hair through the plastic skulls on the dolls. Never don't it myself but most plastic dolls I've seen has this technique add for hair. I should learn this. lol

I'm excited to hear that Doll North market is running all 3 days as I tend to miss it sadly most years due to timing. I should be able to make it for one!
