ladyofthethread: (Ryuuren)
So, I figured out what I’m making next. I’m going to do Ryuuren’s outfit from the end of season 2 so I can hopefully get pictures with [ profile] neoangelwink and [ profile] athena_chan during cherry blossom season. This might be tricky since Anime Boston and Costume Con are on back to back weekends plus Costume Con conflicts with Sakura Matsuri but we’ll try to make it work somehow. That’s partly why I decided to make this outfit; the one I already have is too crazy looking for wandering around on a normal day for a photoshoot and it looks like that's what we'll have to do.


Went out last week and bought some of the fabric and jewelry stuff for it. I have a set of fake bangs and should order a long clip-in ponytail sometime soon because even if my hair is long, it’s not that long! (It’s as if Ryuuren’s hair somehow grew a foot in the few months he hadn’t appeared!)

Haven’t started sewing yet but I made these earrings for the costume last week and I am rather amused I’ll get to wear pretty dangly earrings for a guy character. XD Attaching the crystals was kind of awkward since the holes aren’t that large and I had to curve the wire after putting it through the holes. Plus, the fan pieces had 6 sections so I had to attach the middle crystal to the two center ones to keep the earring from going off balance.

If you missed my last post, I am selling a few crafty things I made in charity auctions for Red Cross. One item doesn’t have any bids yet and the others haven’t moved beyond the starting bid yet so the prices are still very low considering the work that went into the pieces. And since I almost never agree to sell my work since I do such ridiculously labor intensive things, here’s your super rare chance to own a Lady of the Thread creation! :-D More details here:
