[costume] baby steps

So I got a little more done on my costume. Nothing major. It's slow going. Part of me hopes I get it done, part of me doesn't care, since so far I don't think I have anywhere to wear it. I kind of wish I hadn't started it, but now that I have, I need to finish it.

I got most of the sleeve bits done today.

I have to make two brown fingerless gloves and the fur trim and connect it all and the sleeves will be done. I'm a little worried about the fur trim, since it's not coming out well. But hopefully I'll figure it out soon.

So that leaves me with a bunch of hard stuff. I started on the black breast thingy, and it's prooving toe be a pain. I'm hoping I can just will it into existance by stretching the pants cloth over the bra (which is one size too small) that I bought, but it's going to be a pain.

Then I have the neck to do, which might prove rather difficult. I have a few ideas to try, but I'm quite worried.

Oh, and I have the shoe tips to do, but they'll be easy. I'll do then when I'm frustrated with something else.

I'm hoping to have it all done by the 22nd so I can get a photoshoot/test run done before halloween weekend. One week. Whee!!!
