Progress

First cosplay was a terrible DBZ Android 18 with a cut up Ashley Tisdale wig... OH GOD D:
Me and a friend also did a Portal cosplay too; I was Chell with a bumpy portal gun and itchy orange jumpsuit. The highlight was a man on the train asking if I was going to do the thriller like those cool folk in the Philippines prison ;)
I'm most proud of my Princess Nuala costume but it hasn't seen the light of day since I ripped the sleeve very badly.

I'm left just doing tiny parts of this costume now, which means I might ACTUALLY have it finished before everyone forgets what Mass Effect is. I finished dying the striped leggings grey, adding trims and stuff around the edges and making buckles for the back and sides. I also did a makeup test with the full headpiece which I'm happy to say doesn't look to shabby. A friend did some edits of some photos taken which I might upload to DeviantArt at some point, but I dont want to take credit for shoppin' skillz.

I've been putting of doing my costume for weeks now because I thought I had messed up but because of one night of insomnia, I got up and pushed ahead. I've uploaded most of the hard amor pieces which I've finished, included my wet suit shoes I sacrificed for the great good and the breast plate I had to edit so the top part would be more *accentuated*. The breast plate still needs to get a harness fixed around the back to stay on and will go over the embellishments you can see on the refs, plus the arm guards which I took a little artistic lisence (laziness) can easily be fixed with velcro straps. Also I fianlly found a use for the blue UV tubes which will go around the rim of the coat BECAUSE EVERYTHING LOOKS BETTER WHEN IT LIGHTS UP ;]

Well, my birthday weekend gave me an almost broken right arm, meaning I'm unsure whether I'll have my cosplay done in time. My left hand isn't very creative. May have to change the event its gonna be worn at to October Expo D:

Got my white coat off eBay for just £1 (plus two pounds postage ¬¬). Dead comfy and is perfect for cutting so I'll be playing with scissors tonight.
Made my head mould and about to start sculpting the headpiece mould so I should die of chemical exposure in oh, about three days?
Plus ordered so much stuff this afternoon. Got some more Ben Nye body paint; cloud white, cosmic blue and azure blue (last one mainly for the lulz of "lower regions")

And oh yes! Wonderflex is my new favourite thing ever. I had so much fun playing at making legguards last night with a friend who ended up asking, "is this what you do when you're not at college? Really?"
Did I mention I love Wonderflex?

Kristie St-Awesome-amazing came around this afternoon and after playing three hours of New Vegas she then attacked my face with blue.
Gawd I love this stuff. Blue face paint means life without concealer... -wistful-
I'll be getting a darker blue version of the stuff from

tomorrow, hopefully.
Plus my grey leggings to go under the suit and armor arrived today.

Thank you to Kristie, you crazy diamond and Lucy (The American Kitty Cat) who posted all her spare makeup brushes. You guys are awesome!

Ordered £20 worth of blue body paint only for it to show up in the wrong colour. Gah! Damn you crappy colour charts. Unless I want to turn up as a turquoise liara I have to buy more. QQ
Lipstick is pretty accurate; Barry M makes me smile
