For reasons unknown even to me, I have spent the last couple of day attempting to create a Yo-sized kilt out of pleather. Somehow, Declan is becoming my wee Celtic warrior demon child. ...Yeah, I've got nothing. It's just happening, so I'm going with it. Making anything out of pleather is not a fun prospect. Making something out of pleather that needs to be pleated and ironed is all kinds of not fun. I first tried to be lazy and glue it, which didn't work, so I ended up having to sew it. There was a second attempt at making a kilt with a different piece of fabric, which I ruined by accidentally melting the pleather while ironing the pleats. I did manage to salvage my first attempt, though, with some time taken to scrape off glue and sew on a waistband. It doesn't look too bad, though there's a scraped spot I need to figure out how to touch up, and the pleats are a little too big.

He's wearing his coat and kilt now, as well as a spare pair of action figure boots I split up the back (which of course I only put on after I took these photos, for some reason). What better to wear with a black leather kilt than combat boots, right? The boy looks a bit like an escapee from either a goth club or a ren faire, but I think he looks pretty good. I may end up putting some studs or something on the kilt for decoration, but for now I'm leaving it alone. There is no way in any of the hells I am making another kilt out of pleather any time soon. x.x

Wee warrior boy, now with hair! :D (and, uh, yet another sharp object.)

By the way, Danielle, I have to thank you again for that kilt pin. It did not occur to me until I had almost finished sewing on the waistband and was wondering how to fasten the kilt (since the only snaps I have are flimsy plastic) that I had a kilt pin waiting in a bag to be used for something. I am just a little dense sometimes. XD It's working perfectly (being a pin specifically for, well, pinning kilts, and all) and it really makes the crappy little kilt I made look better. <3

Sakai's body arrived on tuesday, and I have to say: I like it. :D It's nicely solid in terms of resin thicknessand is indeed a little thicker/broader than some of the other members of the crew. His build actually reminds me of Syn's flexi-body, which is a good thing. The only problem with his thickness is that those skinny jeans I bought him just *barely* fit over his thighs. They sit really low on his hips, and he can only just sit down,-kind of like real ones, I guess. XD
The colour match is a little off, but close enough for me. I had to do a bit of modding to get his head to fit, but he looks fine now. The length and shape of the neck required a tiny bit of sanding down (maybe a mm or two, so really, not much), and I had to sand out the inside of his neck hole a bit, too. The shape of his neck is different to the shape of his neck hole, so it didn't fit quite right (and is still a touch off), but works well enough for me. I did some of his tribal tattoos yesterday, and I think I might have to redo them because they came out looking quite messy for some reason. I may need to use a different pencil or maybe some paint, but I'm leaving it for now. I did a couple of body piercings as well, so he's not wearing his skin tight sleeveless shirt at the moment. He is instead wearing the VAMPS shirt he took from Luke (who, thankfully, was NOT wearing it at the time).

Fluffies!

So, I was bored today and had a long, foot-ish wide piece of fur (bought for wigs and only 2 wigs were made from it) that had been sitting around for months and hit upon an idea that I've been playing with for a bit now-fluffies! Since I have two cybergoth boys in the house and every cybergoth boy needs a pair of fluffies, I decided to make them both some. So I grabbed my sketchbook and sewing supplies and said cybergoth brats andset to work. I think they turned out fairly well except that I wasn't paying attention when I cut the first piece and Syn's left fluffy is cut against the grain (is that the right word when talking about this?) of the fur. XP Oh, well.

Photos:

The two of them together showing of their new fluffies:


New guy Ian borrowing Syn's muzzle-mask thing:


Syndrome with his new monocle and awesome HighPriestessIce corset. (since Ian has claimed the majority of the Dollmore outfit that I bought) Please also note his freshly sanded and much less yellowed body. (I spent about four hours on the evil little bugger. Two words: Hand. Cramps. :/):


FLUFFIES! XD They're very poofy. (Erm...not *that* kind of poofy XD) The one is all mussed because Syn does not like to stand without at least five minutes of fussing and fiddling with his legs to get him at *just* the precisely right position to balance:

...and I can clearly see it ending up a huge case of utter failure. I...am not the best seamstress in the world, but I decided I'd sew the twins matching outfits. Of course, I have never attempted to do such a thing before, but that's not stopping me. Wish me luck...XP

PS: Why is it so FREAKING hard to find fishnet fabric? Srsly...I had to search hard for what I've got and it cost me ten bucks for half a yard. Not cool. :(
