NemaCon 2012

27th May 2012: Almost There! I've nearly finished Alice! yayaya!
I've just been shaping the diamonds which go on her shoes and at the ends of her plaits out of air drying clay.
It's my first time using modelling clay, so I'm pretty happy with the outcome, even if I'm having a bit of trouble with smoothening it out...
Hopefully I'll be able to fix that with a thin second layer later on, or with the paint though.

So yeah, as soon as they're dry they can be painted gold and then I'm pretty sure that's everything done! (well... minus the sycthe, but I don't count props towards the actual costume, and she rarely has it anyway XD)

I made a few adjustments and added a few things since my detailed image, but I'm not going to show you guys yet :P that was your last proper peek at it until the meet.

I'm so excited to wear this costume!
I've worked really hard to make it accurate and tried my best to miss nothing, so I hope everyone likes it!

More progress pics and details:

21st May 2012: Coat Finished! I finally finished the coat!
All that's left to do is add the zip and the buttons which keep the panel in place. These wont change the appearance though, so I've decided to post costume details now.

Other than that I need to finish the scythe of course, which may take time, and quickly modify the boots once I have some more materials.

I love this costume so much, I can't wait to wear it and get proper photos!

EDIT: I've decided to go all out on this costume, I don't want to miss a single detail, so I'll be editing parts of the costume slightly. These are things people probably wont notice, but I want it as accurate as possible, so I'm doing it. If you notice anything that looks a little off, please, please tell me!

11th May 2012: Coat Test & Wig I seem to do nothing on this costume for ages and then tons all at once!
Today my wig arrived, so that got me in the mood for costume making instead of being lazy! I spent a while spinning around in the wig and dodging the cats trying to play with the tips (it's a VEERY long wig) and then got started on a mock-up of the coat.

The fabric I plan to use is expensive, so I really wanted to test my patterns out on something cheap first, and I'm glad I did, since I need a meter extra than I originally planned for.

So, I've ordered the fabric now, and uploaded some pics of the mock-up. It's very messy and only pinned together, not sewn, but I'm surprised at how easy it was to put together. I had the idea that it would be a lot trickier.

I also modified the gloves I bought, and styled/trimmed the wig (unfortunately after I'd taken photos!), just waiting for fabric and boots now!
