Just got back from the airport after having taken MysteriousFayth
there. The past two weeks passed way too fast!
Good thing is that at least this time we won't have to wait more than a month to see each other again
Then in London for the Expo! And we did get en extra 25 or so minutes together, as it was snowing so badly that the planes couldn't land. So there was a LOT of delays at the airport XD Seriously, when going there we couldn't see more than a few meters in front of the car. It was like driving in a glass of milk >.< It's cleared up though, and now it's bright and sunny again. Hopefully a lot of the snow that came today wil melt away just as quick as it came. I'm tired of winter now! Bring on spring!
The two last weeks passed way too quickly, but at least we got things done. Other things than the usual lazying around, watching TV and just enjoyng finally being able to spend some time together again ^_^ Just yesterday we managed to more or less finish off MysteriousFayth
's Ikuto cosplay (Shugo Chara!). Just small details left to do now I think.
I've almost finished styling my new and improved Temari (Naruto) wig. It's starting to come along nicely now, but I need more wefts so have to go out shopping before I can do any more on it. I've also almost completed Rip van Winkle (Hellsing), just need to wait for the wig to arrive so I can style it, buy and sew on the buttons on her blazer, make gloves, buy glasses.. and of course make her musket.. That will be a challenge. Though it might be easier than I think, I haven't really looked at it yet, so haven't started planning how to do it
Making a start in Rider's (Fate/Stay Night) clothes today, so hopefully the black parts will be done. Have still to buy pruple fabric. Once that is done all that's left is wait for the wig.
We also did a few photo shoots. We had plans for a Temari shoot as well, but I didn't manage to complete the wig in time
But Temari is coming out for a shoot in London in May, so she's not too sad about it XD We did manage to do a photo shoot of my Saria (Legend of Zelda) cosplay and my Amelia Lydia (original character, some might remember the ball gown I used at Amecon and on the Expo "ball" in October?). We found a beautiful photo shoot location just a few minutes walk from where I live. A quite big forest, snow was undisturbed (and not to mention deep! I sunk down to over my knees several times... img.photobucket.com/albums/v52…
Even the weather decided to be on out side a few days. It wasn't quite what I had hoped for, but it could've been worse. At least the temperature was only a few degrees below zero, and there was little or no wind, so I could stay in my cosplays for a while before getting too cold. Though some of the pictures needs editing because my fingers look bright red XD Bright red fingers and winter pale skin doesn't go too well together
Though the white dress looks so beautiful against the white snow and trees, so I'm really happy with the pictures, having to go cold a little was worth it! The things one do for cosplay! XD Pictures will be posted over the next few days once I've looked though them and done some editing.
Anyway, I've got so many ideas for photo shoots now! I just need to complete the cosplays and outfits the ideas belong to.. And either wait for when I can visit Fayth or he can come over here again. I really hope I can get to visit him in Scotland soon, as (amongst other reasons of course! XD) my Black Rose cosplay is at his place, and I've got no good pics of her. I worked too hard on her for not having any good pics, and I'm worried she'll be ruined before I get the chance, as she is very fragile and is just stored away on a loft now :SClubs:
