Lately I have been working hard on my Rapunzel costume. Things are not going as planned... the bodice I made ended up not looking at all how I wanted it to, so I'm going to remake it. I've been working hard on the wig. I first styled it wit loads of extra hair, so that it would be accurately thick, but it weighed so much that I couldn't wear it for long. So I've made it much thinner, but I like it better this way. I feel like it's a bit more accurate to how it would look in reality.
I'd love to do it with an actual really long wig at some point, but I fear it would just get too tangled (ironic considering the name of the film haha!). Doing this wig was difficult enough; it's actually made from 2 wigs that I combined together to get more hair and thickness. Both were 5 feet long, so it was quite difficult with that much length!
Besides working on cosplay, I've also been working on a new style. Since leaving lolita I feel very lost style wise.
I love Hime Gyaru, but the trouble is that I can never get the hair and makeup right, and I don't fit most of the clothes. I might try making some dresses in the future, but I can't fit the brand clothes. I also love Agejo style but I fear that if I wore it I would look like a hooker. Other people can pull it off super well but I don't have the confidence.
I've been looking at a more preppy look. I love school-girl style and uniforms. I've loved to wear plaid pleated skirts for years, but I want to start pairing them with blazers and sweaters for more of a casual schoolgirl look. It's difficult though, because you walk a fine line between fashionable and costumey with this look.
It's also pretty sad because I realized that my entire closet is pink or black. I need to add more colors, but I'm not sure how. I feel like a total fashion loser haha!
