Ayacon 2011

24th August 2011: Ayaaaaaa! Haha, well, I've never had to fight for an iron before, but that is exactly what happended the Thrusday night preceding Aya. Three of us battling away to finish costumes! I technically finished this costume the morning of Aya, so I will post some better journal entries when I upload the pics. I have been keeping photographic evidence of the making of this costume, honest...

Aya was completely great - and I felt the insta-cute as soon as the cat ears were on. I think they're my favourite part of this costume - followed closely by the wig...which needs some serious de-frizzing now.

Keep an eye out for photos of me playing 'meowth baseball' and using some improvisational gumption to double my cat paws as baseball gloves XD

8th June 2011: The arrival of a new wig always brings that pre-con excitement! Another wiggy for the collection! This one is quite a bit different to ones I have had in the past (which, now that I think about it, have all been short ones). This is great, because it means I get to swish it around like an absolute idiot, but it does pose new challenges...one, it is super heavy because of the clip on ponytails, two, the static!

But hey, I'm not complaining. The weight isn't bad at all once its been on your head for a few minutes, and I think it is sooo cute...I feel irresistable urges to tie ribbons round the ponytails and plait it...

Ooh, a bonus is: not much work!! A little trimming of the fringe area, some small hairspraying/gelling and that's about it. But as you know, Sam doesn't do simple, so I've ordered a separate ponytail and I will attempt to weft some extra volume into the ponytails. Attempt being the key word there- but I have a summer's worth of time!! Lots of time for messing up before getting it right!!

Aww thank you! I personally think the cat ear headband takes all the credit for the cuteness factor, rather than me hahah!
