31st May 2012: Ame Improvements Expo has been and gone and well yeah. i think I did an okay job though there are some improvements that need to be done between now and Ame.
-Redo the hat. Looking at how the hat is in the anime (and i did purchase the Perfect Guide Book at Expo) I may cover a helmet as a base. I also need to redo some of the jewels since some of them fell off. I'm still keeping the eyes-I'm pleased with those.
-Tame the wig. Oh gosh it needs taming. I have wig detangler and a comb and I am not afraid to use it.
-Re-bone the bodice. I had rushed this before Expo and it was starting to get loose. Maybe something a bit stronger?
-Bustle pad for skirt for added accuracy
-Heels and long socks instead of boots. I'm not killing my feet again at Ame as badly as at Expo.
-New arm gloves because they were a pain to put on.
-If time I may make some penguins. Oh yes. And I need some sort of body glitter.

The costume did look fantastic on the day. I know you've heard say so many times now. But I wanted to comment the fact on this site. Thankyou for putting up with the discomfort even if it was not for my benefit.

You made a fantastically beautiful Princess of the Crystal dear, I'm honestly not just saying that. The costume was so well made and looked gorgeous, you should be very proud of it. Can't wait to see it again at Ame!

I think one of my toes is still numb from wearing those boots ^^;. And thanks-I'm looking forward to fixing her up and rewearing her at Ame.
