Phoenix Wig / Serah Earrings 
Today I went to Jo's house to try to work on his Phoenix Wright wig. We had decided to try and make it with craft foam to form a basic shape and then cut a wig and stick it on so that it keeps its shape. We made the 'cap' and we took heaps of photos of it on his camera so hopefully I'll be able to upload some later.

When I got home, I decided to try and make my serah earrings. I was using Fimo:

and I just wanted to test it out to see if it was even possible.
They actually turned out alright. It's pretty hard to get a good shape but I think with a few more goes, I should be able to do it.

More Progress on Serah 
So the holidays have been here for just over a week now... or was it two? i can't even remember cause i've been so busy!

But anyway, I've been trying to work on my Serah skirt inbetween all the other stuff I have to do for my parents. I managed to get the pleats done one day. Then I sewed the whole thing together another day. It would have been fine if I'd not been so lazy and didn't interface my waistband and if I'd made it smaller... (i'm always too worried that it won't fit so I made it a bit too big by accident).

Anyway, so after kinda having completed it, I decided to take the whole thing apart and fix it up. I've re-done the pleats so that the skirt is the right width now. Added interfacing to the waistband and my mum says she'll try and help me fix up the zip so that it's hidden nicely.

I just want to get it done!! >< Cause then I have to do heaps of other stuff...

I shall post some pictures of the process work soon~! (Should have taken a photo of it when it was 'done' before I took it apart again...)

Skirt as it is at the moment. Waistband is just placed at the top at the moment.

Lining material I'll be using to make the lining of the skirt. Wouldn't have been bothered but the skirt material is soooo thin!
Serah Progress 
So yesterday was the Manifest Picnic. Mel, Lisa, Evan and I decided to drop by to buy Manifest tickets. Before we did though, everyone was awesomely accompanied me to go buy my Serah skirt material.

It looks like this:

I've been meaning to buy it for a while now since I saw it but I was hoping to find something more similar to her skirt pattern before. But now, time's running out and we just decided to get it anyway because we probably weren't going to be able to find something better. (if only the black lines could disappear).

So now I have the material!! And I really just want to start making the skirt but uni is in the way!!! ><
