Two bits of progress – almost finished Rose Quartz dress, and almost finished Pearl wig.
nachttour‘s Rose Quartz dress needs the gem glued on, the zipper fixed, and some of the chiffon tacked in place, but otherwise, it’s there. I didn’t take a picture, but it looks /really/ good on and with a hoop skirt underneath. It looks like a tube here, but the skirt is a half circle, which ends up being quite massive with the support structure.
And my Pearl wig. I’m not entirely happy with it, but it looks decent in this photo. I think I know what I did wrong, so if I ever wanted to remake the wig (or possibly try to redo this one?) I could do so. I’m not wearing a wig cap here, so I have a bit of extra hair sticking out, and I’ll need to shave my sideburns and the back of my neck anyway because the hairline of the wig is not the same shape as my hairline. This just needs the bangs styled, and a little bit of fixing of some hair that came loose.
I also have most of a Pearl spear, but that’ll have to wait until I finish it. I have a tiny bit more structural gluing to do (gluing the attachment method onto the PVC pipe), but otherwise, it’s just the decorative elements and inserting the
super high tech light diffusion film cellophane gift wrap and lights.
I burned my hand pretty badly tonight while making dinner, so I don’t know how many more pre-con updates I’ll be posting, besides the spear. I hope it heals quickly so I can get back to both cosplay work and my actual work (which involves a lot of computer use/using the palm of my hand, right where my burn is) without a lot of pain.
I’m pretty excited to have these almost done! Keep an eye out for us at Sacanime. :]
