Rest of the day's work  
Headband finished
hair-tie finished
Obi finished

I think.

I'll need to get everything together and see how it looks. I may need to make the hair-tie longer. Dunno yet. Also, I thought I'd need to put interfacing in the headband. I played with some shirting and came to the conclusion that it wasn't nessesary, but the shirting is so thin you can see the seam on the back as a bump on the other side of the headband. May need to remake it, but that won't be that big of a deal.

So, continuing with the to-do list from yesterday and this morning, here's what's left:


~~Finish Ropes. I didn't go out today. I do think that I may have enough shirting scraps to finish this without buying more fabric.. but I definitely need to go out and buy aluminum tubing, or SOMTHING that will work for the shoulder straps.

~~Finish Shoes. I'm thinking about using some red craf foam and rolling it up to make a thong strap. Come to think of it.. I have red craft foam leftover from the red heard I made for my Babbit/Sana "costume" Hmm.. I can still do that tonight....

~~Finish Gloves. Again, somthing I have to hold off until I have the buckles. I don't know where my extra black vinyl is.. but even if I knew where it was, I wouldn't be able to cut the straps without knowing how wide to make them (which is based entirely off the buckles)

~~Make glove spikes

~~Finish earrings. (Can't do this until I have hooks. Have to either go out for that, or wait until Ringo gets back in town and ask her for some)

Other costumes:

~~Silky Repairs. Knowing me... the wig will get painted, and everything else will get forgotten

~~Otaru Glove cuffs. Again, very simple. I COULD do it tonight.. but I think I'm out of regular red thread. I've been cheating by with burgandy from the rabi& machi costumes... Oh well! hahahah IT's going to be easy, regardless. I'm just too lazy to thread a new bobbin

All this brings me to a new shopping list! (This is a weekend for lists, I suppose!)

Jo Ann's
Red thread. A big spool
Interfacing. A LOT. Maybe 4 yards of heavy duty. I don't know. XD I use heavy duty for everything! I never use lightweight or fusable. Always heavy duty!
Orange thread. I THOUGHT I had some from the Sarasa costume. I may be wrong. I may have lost it, or it may have been M's mom's. In any case.. it's amazing how much orange is in Bloodberry, and I've sewn it all with other colors like red and white.. lol. Would be good to have orange. And moer red.

2 aluminum tubes
electrical tape

And that should take care of that.... for now!
Incidentally, I bid on some very nice black boots on ebay. The bottoms are perfect for my Millenia shoes, and I should be able to cover them with my purple suede sheepskin and get the right shape. On the other hand.. I may not have enough sheepskin to do the waist-cincher AND the boots. I really hope I do... but if I don't, it's back to buying tacky purple suede skirts off ebay to cannibalize.
Actually.. a seller has more skins on auction now. Do I feel like paying 30.00 for two more skins? I don't know. Must look around more.. but it's definitely good to know!
Current Mood: busybusy

I'm glad you're feeling better... If you got sick in Waco, I'm sorry. >..< I wasn't sick! IT wasn't me!

How's the costume going? About 3 weeks left until Ushi...

Re: nerps
=p It's all your fault! Neener!
Naw, I got sick before hand, I think. So I need to find who ever it was, that I was around, and beat them with in an inch of their lives.

Now that my hands are finally steady again (stabbed herself ALOT while trying to sew last week), I'm working on the obi.
I went out and had to get new needles and thread. Then I need to go BACK to walmart and see if they have the interfacing back in stock. *urgh*

^^ And....
I need to remember the instructions you gave me <.
