Iva's gettin' me a bad headache

(my english will probably suck in this post, so just ignore the lame grammar xD lol xD )

I have serious problems guys.

I've already worked with vinyl (Nico Robin, eh ) so I know the bad characteristics of vinyl. The vinyl coating can rip easily in places that have bigger tension than others (i.e. butt area, shoulders, elbows, etc. ) (if this sentence sucks, sry. my english's kinda weird right now Oo lol . . .lah xD )

So I sat down and started to find a way out of this dilemma.
I'll probably glue a non-stretchy fabric to the left side of the vinyl, to keep the vinyl frmo stretching and later on from ripping apart.
I srsly HOPE this'll work. If not . . . I'm doomed.

Ivankov Mock Up

Okay, for the ones who can't read german:
this is what's written on the top picture:

"First: the collar is weird, need to think over it

2nd: there's still some seam allowance, so it looks too big and wonky xD

3rd: my undies didn't do my figure justice xD won't look that fat when the costume is done xDD "

Ivankov Eyelashes . . . again

Okay, so, since I'm still stuck with the idea of doing his eyelashes out of paper, I went to my local art store and bought "silk paper". well I looked it up in the dictionary, but all I got was "soft tissue" . . . sounds like you sneeze in it Oo glah, well, the german word is "Seidenpapier".
anyway. When I got home I grabbed some pair of scissors and roughly cut out a few of his thick and long eyelashes and glued them on. After that I used my Red Cherry (upper and lower) eyelashes and glued those over the paper lashes. I then realized that I totally forgot the eyeliner, so I drew a V-shaped line around my tear duct.
And this is what I've got.

yeah. messy hair. ignore that xD
I know if I work a bit with this, it'll look amazing in the end! Especially with the blue make up to cover my eyebrows xD
I know the first three eyelashes are kinda wonky, but that's because I pinched them to get them in the shape I wanted. (and I tried several other methods like water, etc. xD )

For Robins thriller bark dress, I realized that painting the zip would never ever work. especially since I couldn't find the right purple and even mixing two or even three different colors didn't work. so I just bought a new zipper in a different "aubergine". hopefully the color turns out okay.

guess that's it.
mata ne!

Epic Fail.
I'll try it again.
Or if it doesn't work the next time again, i'll just paint it oO

nah, i'll just paint it from the beginnig. There's just too much tension on the fabric. *le sigh* On the hip it looks better.
*gnah* have to paint it *go searches for fabric paint* or maybe acrylic paint? I'll see what works better...

Cosplaying Plans for 2011??

srsly? I'm currently or ALREADY thinking of who I can or should cosplay in 2011.If there are no really awesome upcomming One Piece Cosplay, I actually wanted to keep 2011 as One Piece-free as possible, since this year I already have 4 or 5 One Piece costumes planned or currently in the making.

Of course I've already planned waaaay ahead and grouped up with a buddy for a Hellsing group (but we're still short on members! So if any want to join us in '11, feel free to ask (we've actually been planning to stay away from huge groups, since we're going to be Seras and Hans Günsche/The Captain aaaaand yeah xD whatever. skip that, we need MOAAAAAR group members xD )

I've been watching a lot of anime lately, and of course some costume ideas jumped into my mind.

I've been a huge fan of "Burst Angel" since the first volume was released in Germany. Since then I had a huge crush on Jo and actually planned to cosplay her in the early 2007.- (hit me if this doesn't match with the release date *lol* xD ) And I'm particular fond of her relationship with Meg *slurr* more lesbian power pleeease xDDD *lah* Jo is just some ass kicking (KickAss anyone? xDD can't wait till it releases here in Germany xDD ) and ultra cool girl xDD

Doesn't look to special huh? xD
Masataka Takayanagi  is from  "Tenjo Tenge". I just started to watch this series, so it could be that my decision will change. Anyway, I thought it'd be cool to finall crossplay again xD Some time flew by since I've crossplayed the last time. *le sigh*
This is actually the reason why he catched my interest xD

Woops! I just took a look on the clock! HAV TO GO xD I'll continue on this post when I come back!
Mata ne!
