The guy just used plastic packaging cutouts + silicone (for more of a 3d effect). You can probably mess around with several ideas to get some pretty interesting light diffraction effects.
Steel Legion is poopy.

I ended up getting a really bright LED that i can turn off and on easily. Woo!

I do have a simple LED that i'm trying to put into her mana potions but so far it keeps coming out orange (as the inner node is orange). So solid blue they will be. Going to look for glow sticks for evening look.
I'll post pictures of it at some point.

... any idea where I can buy thicker glow sticks in a store?

I have to hem my skirt, put the grommets in the bodice, and hem the jacket for Maou and I'm done.

Or I would be, except we had house work done recently and my entire sewing room is covered in a layer of something about a centimeter thick, so I have to wash everything before I can even touch it. I could barely manage to spend 40 minutes in my sewing room last night from the dust, so the plan this week shall be to wash eeeeeverything - clothes, walls, tables, floor... bah humbug.

I'm just hoping that my Twilight Sparkle outfit didn't get covered in this stuff since I don't think I can wash her. The cutie mark is fabric paint and I`m worried it`ll run.

So much for being finished early!

I styled most of my Nehelenia wig last night. *_*

Sew in three curly extensions to thicken the wig up and install my odangos. But I might move my two extension on the side to up top.

The bangs where set in curlers which I will take out tonight to style her bangs and poof them. Installing toupee clips into the wig (because it's heavy!) and installing the crown after that (still not sure as to how). I'm plan to see if I can tease the roots at the crown to thicken that area up a bit as the hair lays pretty flat. lol


The first image is of the base wig, The second image is with all three extensions. It looks weird without bangs anad without teasing the crown. lol

@Ani BEE: Again, wow! Every time I chime into this forum you show more crazy skills (haha!)

I wrote this in the 'Final Fantasy 2013' forum, but I was so excited I thought I'd share with everyone!

"In further news! I got my brown contacts in! I was concerned because:
1. I have never worn contacts (however, consequently they are very comfortable)
2. My eyes are green/blue and, ultimately, light (however, the brown contacts hide everything!)

Check them out! - Princess Garnet is almost ready to show!"


Need to spray paint the hair clip and possibly make the staff (bought all the products just don't know where to start Q.Q) But otherwise, she's almost finished and ready to go!

I'm getting better at take a second to take progress photo's. I just wish I was faster at everything because this is getting down to the wire for me. lol


I actually place a massive order to Pink Paradise yesterday (free shipping!) for contacts, lashes, and eye care items after testing out my circles lens. I will never be a daily contact user but I' finally figure out why I was having problems getting them in and out with my crazy strong blink reflex. O____o Once there in they are great!

I'm excited for these contacts.

Glow sticks, as in the ones you crack to start the chem-reaction? Those can be bought in a few places, but I usually think a party store would be best? There's a few I believe in the general GTA.

If we're talking LED, I just checked walmart and they seem to have something.
http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/eco-led-glowstick/10074942#

Comes in 4 colors as well; red, green, blue and pink. Just search up a location and see if it's near you, they're pretty cheap as well. I'm seeing $4.00 a stick. You can probably just put the stick dead center of the bottle/container for your mana potion, and cover the top portion (where I assume the batteries go) with the bottle's lid/cork (just hollow it out). Assuming it all fits that is.

Everyone's stuff looks awesome and I can't wait to see all the things!

Underpinnings for Princess!Dory are done; putting the final touches on the gown's outer layer this week, though I seem to have lost the good satin I bought for the edging... -_-'

Style the wig and design a tiara this weekend...

OMG I still need to find a diving mask!!! *flail*

My clay finally came in today, so on my day off, I am planning on making my pancake props.
Now all I need to do is finish the dress (which will be made this weekend at my friend's house), and get my contacts.

*sigh of relief*

Nice find! That walmart thing seems great. Basically i'd just use the glowstick at night, during the day I can use the test tubes for a more legit look.
