Now Playing Tracks

k, so I got up out of bed to turn on downloads i forgot about in steam, and then suddenly I was on tumblr and it an hour later. I HAVE TO BE UP AT 5:30. So, goodnight tumblr ^_^

Ragyo Kiryuin preview! …Of course I realized immediately after I took my makeup off that I’d forgot to put on the collar but oh well.  This also does not include the feather boa/cape, but I wanted to be sure to put some preview pics up before Colossalcon!
The wig took forever and a day, but I’m actually really happy with how it turned out.  There were a few things I’d really wanted to accomplish with it: It needed to both light up and look good while turned off.  It also needed to be portable for wearing around a convention.  I find that EL wire tends to not photograph well during the daytime, while LEDs can be too bright if they aren’t diffused.  So I ended up packing a hollow foam space with superbright 5050 LEDs, and then diffusing them with wig fiber laid on top of a plexiglass screen.  The wig runs off of 4 to 8 AA’s and is monstrously bright - the color is hard to see on cameraphones while in darker spaces, but I’m looking to experiment with the voltage to get a more consistent photo range.  I’ll be putting up a wig guide with progress pics after the con too.
