Well, I wasn't sure about it, but...

The Yu~ki wig I got is perfect. Compared to the reference photo (from the site I bought the wig from), it looks nothing like it. But.. compared to the reference photo of Yu~ki, it looks DAMN close, IMO. IT's weird. I mean, it's no where NEAR as full as the reference photo. I had suspected that it wouldn't be as thic... because I was assuming the parted the hair in the back and pushed it to the front. Well.. even if I were to do that with the wig I got in.. it wouldn't look anywhere near as full as the one in the photo. However.. this is what I was hoping for.. which makes the wig darn near perfect. It's really curly, so it's kind of tangly. I've been working on running my fingers through it this afternoon. It's a bit tangled just because it's so curly, but I think I can relax it to make it look like my reference photo. I just gotta get to the hobby store and buy the stuff I need to sew into the wig to finish it. Things are looking good for Yu~ki so far. I need to start practicing the makeup, though

Today is a costume day. I really don't have as much time to A-kon as I think... so I need to get moving. I think I can dye the top for the Loli costume today, and make the base skirt. That will just leave sleeves, underskirt, and leather detailing to take care of. I don't know exactly how I want to make the underskirt yet, though, so that part will probably take a while.
I've been procrastinating on Yu~ki because I've been hoping to win this white leather hide to make the top out of. I keep losing bids because I don't want to go over 40 bucks for it, and they've been consistantly selling for around 70. It's hard to tell what the original fabric is.. but it's probably not leather. I just thought the white leather suede-texture would look great on the top.

Gotta get stuff done today..


    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…
