  • Mood:



Damn near had to turn the house upside down.. but it gave me a chance to sort through my remnants and patterns.

That's not where it was, though!

It was in the bag of paper-mache/fiberglass supplies...

Though how it got there, I may never know. I SWEAR I checked there before...

In any case... this means that there is a chance that I can finish the bloodberry costume and take pictures THIS WEEK!

Here's what I have to do:

~~Finish gloves. For this, I need buckes, though. Ringo bought me tons, so that makes me happy! :D As soon as I have the buckles, I can cut the vinyl belt straps for the gloves, and when that's done, the gloves are finished!

~~Finish shoes. All I need to do this is to make a sandal-thong, and attach it to my heels

~~Make white underwear-things. Thong thing. Nature unknown. I just found some VERY nice heavy-duty extra-white spandex I bought a while back, though, and that makes me happy. I THOUGHT that was what I was using for mytabi.. but apparently it's not, b/c I found a roll of gorgeous heavy duty white spandex a few moments ago

~~Finish "ropes". This takes a bit more work. I need to go to Lowe's and pick up more aluminum tubing. (and some more electrical tape) I also need to make 2 more "socks" for the tubing. After that's done, I need to make the tassles for the ends of the ropes. I'm contemplating putting it all together for a photo. I can't make up my mind.

~~Make headband. This will be easy. I just need to take some of my white shirting scraps, and sew a simple white strip. I even found some more interfacing while I was cleaning, so I can make this today. While I'm at it, I just need to sew one thin strip to go around the rubber bands I'll be putting in my hair to make the really high ponytail

~~Make glove spikes. This will also be pretty simple. DOn't know if I'm going to mess with the fiberglass today, though. All I need to do is make a pair of exaggerated knuckle-dusters& then glue/rivet/firmly attach them to the gloves. I can do this in a day, but it probably won't be today.

Then.. Bloodberry's as good as finished. I'm damn near done!
... then, I get to shave my arms for the liquid latex. XD



    Yaaaay! The con is over! Time to get ready for the next one! Sometimes, twitter just cannot contain all the things I want to say about a subject.…

  • Oh wow, I haven't blogged in forever!

    I kind of forget about Livejournal now. It feels so empty that I've joined a bunch of communities, but it's not really helping! Since November,…

  • November is almost over already?!?!

    I've really enjoyed not having anything important to do for a while. I've been cleaning (a little bit), quilting (a lot, but in short bursts), and…
