My resin ended up not working for a third time so I just ended up painting my clay copies and actually like them more than I think I would have liked the resin, Go figure! xD
I may also redo the top of my dress as I think the neck line is too high and the sleeves don't look right. (:
For the wig I'm thinking of ordering a Claudia wig from Arda to straighten and add in as wefts to make my wig have tonssss of natural volume. (I don't wanna use foam!!!!!!! XDDDD)
Ahh well! What do you think? [link
Oh yes! Also I'm making SS Link (skyloft) for my boyfriend! I have everything cut out and the appliques are heat n bonded on I just need to satin stitch them!
I wish I could sew that fast *-* I miss the days I use to zoom through the costumes now I'm like, "A PUCKER DIEEEE" and redo it over..and over..and over again q-q not fun
I hear you on the no foam thing, I want to reuse the wig for my Alice costume since I do parties in it (surprisingly it gets booked more often than I would think) so I need to keep it brush able and loose. And I like to keep it natural looking~
I used a Claudia straightened for my Alice wig before I remade the costume, it was perfect, really thick and easily intangled. It was bought back when arda first started and it lasted through millions of transformations until I accidently gave it away..as in I let someone borrow it and never got it back xD it's cool though, she does so much for me that I don't mind.
I haven't had a wig from arda like that again though..makes me sad.
Hope it works out for you! here's a pic of it http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3050982/
see how nice and full it is~ I would recommend trimming the ends since the layers are uneven though.
Speaking of that Zelda, after the symphony (which was amazing), I got sooo excited for mine! I'm not making the costume since I have no time because of commissions but its in capable hands
I went texture crazy and bough peach skin, dupioni, canvas, tafetta, corduroy, and I forget what else~ looksie; the colors are a bit off..stupid phone. Just putting the link to keep this from getting even longer than it is.
I bought my wig from epic cosplay because I still had my $10 certificate they sent me for sharing my rarity wig with them~ I basically got the wefts for free. I sewed them in today but it did almost nothing. The left is pre weft and the right is after sewing them in..
i used up my saved points (I have just enough to finish paying off everything for AX so I didn't want to spend money) to buy matching ponytail clips to straighten and sew in the front and back.
Again since I'm tight moneywise, I accompanied my dad to the thrift store since he was picking up suits to send back to his country and I found one pair of boots that would work for her which he bought for me ($10) It even has the flaps but they're a darker brown but eh I'm already going far from being screen accurate so Im dealing with it
can't say no to free boots.
And lastly xD I styled the bangs right now :3 I don't like flat bangs so I gave it more of a poof~
AAAAH sorry for spamming this giant post but IM SO EXCITEEED. I need to do a makeup test tonight >>;
