Those are cute earrings!

And either this wig in platinum blonde or ash blonde and massively tease up the bangs with a barrel brush, blow dryer and hairspray--

(This cosplayer actually used it for Alice, too!~--

Or this one:

~~The Arda one is gorgeous in person, as is the epiccosplay wig. Both are reputable sellers and I've ordered several wigs from both companies

Awww, I'm sorry to hear that. If I were to go to AX I would make a Mercury right now. You could always hope to just bump into a Mercury there. <--too much to hope for but you never know)

Aww. Thanks. I doubt there's gonna be a lonely Mercury wandering around, but we can be hopeful. Next year, or sometime soon I hope to get all the inners together. For a photoshoot if nothing else. D:

Well I hope it really doesn't ruin your fun while you're there. Hopefully next time when you get your inners together you'll finally get a Mercury

On a side note, today was my sister's graduation! She's finally free from high school!!! Yay! xD

@Ayaasan: How long do Arda wigs take to arrive to someone?

It depends on if it's in stock or not (they're having a massive restock next week), but I've gotten wigs from them as soon as the next day, and as late as a week. They're super fast

Oh! And Lady Loki is still a go, I just took down the pics because I wanted everything to be a surprise for Comikaze. (I REAALLLY hope to meet Stan Lee in this costume!!~) Buuuttt...here is a preview shot of the diadem and wig together--



I'm thinking of going even heavier on the eye makeup and still deciding on whether to go dark green or brighter red for the lipstick..? Opinions? I can't wait to get started on the medallions for the hair!~

Wow the next day?! Really?! That's so awesome! Yeah my "Alice wig is out of stock right now. :P

The horns are looking fabulous! Oohh I know for sure people are gonna love it! Did you say before that the horns are attached to the wig or the diadem? Hmmm...have you already tried putting a dark green on yet? But I guess green because Loki is surrounded by green xD

I actually figured out a way to rig up the horns onto the diadem by cutting indentations for support, and using good old E-6000 glue and letting it dry overnight. Since the horns are made of styrofoam and paper-clay, they weigh hardly anything It's rigged onto my head with an elastic band, which also allows for the hair "poof" that I've finally figured out XD If you ever cosplay a character with THICK as heck hair, I highly recommend straightening a curly wig from epiccosplay.com---man, oh, man, this sucker is like two or three wigs sewn together, and it's perfect! :P

And thanks! I'm still playing around with her/his, lol makeup. I might even go a smidge paler. I also want to exaggerate my eyebrows more

Looks great Ayaasan! I like the eye make-up, I wouldn't go too much more with the eyes, they look good. o: For Lady Loki I've seen a few people do black lipstick, but I think a dark red would be really nice. o: If you do go green, I'd suggest a fairly dark green don't want it to take away from the outfit as a whole, since it's green. xD

@Link: Oh, yeah, I was sooo happy this thing ended up being light--I'm diagnosed with migraines and was afraid I'd only be able to wear Loki for super short time periods. Sooo...YAY!~ (it was even moving around the table when I added the finishing touches with the heat gun, lol)
And, yup! Merida is finally all done! I'll be at the Mira Mesa AMC or Edwards next Friday for the premiere--need to ask the organizer the official details and time. (I'm also going to the fair that day, so I hopefully won't be too tired *oof*)

@Tulipe: Thank-you! I mainly just want to go a smidge more on the smokey side ala Regina from Once Upon a Time, and exaggerate the brows more. I was leaning more toward red, too, since I think it'll make a nice "pop" contrast with all of this green :P

I'll be able to start working on the green suede corset on Tuesday, and I'll be hunting for some yummy thick pile tan fur for the bottom of the fur cape--full train, for sure, and I'll make it rig up so it won't get stepped on during conventions. And eeee! Props! I'm making the staff with a nebula ball, and having a separate glow contact juggling ball
