7th August 2010: Completed!! This costume is now complete!!! My goodness... how did I manage to finish it with days to spare? XD XD
Anyways, this is all ready to be worn at Amecon!! I will wear it for most of Saturday. I'm changing out of it for the Masquerade but back into it for the party, ^_^
Urgh I feel so accomplished... XD XD
6th August 2010: Trousers Completed So... I lied, I kept working on the trousers. Though they did go on pause until I started the painting of the jacket. I've been sewing the trousers whilst waiting for the paint to dry, :P.
But I can now mark the trousers as complete.
All I have left to do on this costume now is two lots of painting... I will be finished within the next day or two... ^_^
1st August 2010: Boots Completed I have actually finished something for this costume!!! Finally... XD XD The boots are now done. I did not want to sew anything onto the boots as I love them so much, but I think I did it in a way that I can take the ribbons off afterwards easily... XD XD
I've started work on the trousers but they will go on hold until I've finished the jacket now. Cus I can forsee it taking way longer than planned to finish these trousers and if need be I can just wear my leggings from my other Rudolf costume. So I'm gonna finish the jacket first and then go back to the trousers.
23rd July 2010: I has wig!! 23/07/2010 My wig arrived... a little lighter than I thought it was gonna be but I think it works perfectly. Not sure wether I should cut it and style it or just leave it as it is... though obviously I'm gonna have to style it a bit on the day anyway so it doesn't fall into my eyes all the time and some of it curves behind my ears... but yeah, I quite like it, ^_^
20th July 2010: 20/07/2010 I have officially started this costume, *sparkles*
Jacket - I think it's a little too dark or not blue enough to be honest, but it should work... It's all pinned ready for me to take up. Then I'll take the buttons off... attach the velcro... then attach the maroon material onto the sleeves and collar and then add on all the edging/decoration etc.
Trousers - These don't need taking up thankfully... they fit quite well and besides... they are being tucked into my boots, ^_^ Anyways they are ready for me to attach the ribbons and gold piping onto. And that's all.
Boots - My boots are awesome... and I really don't want to have to sew or stick anything onto them but I think I've worked out a way to do it without damaging the boots so I can take the ribbons off after... *happyface* But yes, these are ready for me to stick the gold ribbons onto.
Wig - Waiting for it to arrive.

electricdino - 13th February 2010
Oooo you're coming to Amecon then!?! Does that mean I have 2 Tods when I'm both young Rudolf and Adult Rudolf? *sparkles*
Debbie Ella - 14th February 2010
Well I dunno yet, but I thought that was the plan atleast. :P But yeah, I'm not making any promises yet, but seeing as that was what we had planned. ;)
Debbie Ella - 14th February 2010
Also, lol at you sparkling. IS IT REAL?!
electricdino - 20th February 2010
I hope you do come to Amecon!! It would be awesome if you would there... and we could belt out Yami Ga when I am older Rudolf, XD XD And of course the sparkling is real... *shiftyeyes* XD XD

I'm thinking that you should def cut the wig a bit! Not much, the back looks pretty good and the colour is lovely, but the fringe needs some cutting. Ruddy's got more of a bowl-cut in the front, your wig has a much too sweeping fringe. ^^; It shouldn't be too hard, you can def do it yourself! ^_^
electricdino - 4th August 2010
Yeah, the wig I'm currently leaving until I'm there, but it all depends on if I get this costume finished with days to spare... ^_^
