So… It’s time for an update.
Since the last one, I’ve finished moving into school, gone to a wedding, and went through my first week of classes. Which is why it’s been a while.
But the show must go on!
I’ve been working on my necklace projects at the moment, as I work on getting my serger up and running.
Remember how I was working on my Belle necklace, getting the swoosh bits finished? The ones that look like question marks, without the dot?
After finishing these swooshes, I’ll be then designing and creating the smaller versions, which will then allow for the real creation of the necklace!
Then I decided to work on the TARDIS time rotor. I finished making all the baubles, and made the loop to thread it onto a chain.
The second bauble from the bottom is a bit too small. On the time rotor in the show, one of the spheres is significantly bigger than the rest. I tried to emulate that by encapsulating a slightly bigger round bead, but it doesn’t show nearly enough. I’m going to put another layer of the clear beads on top, which should increase the outward appearance of the bauble, making it more like the actual time rotor.
Should be done shortly, so look out for a final post for the necklace this week!
Also, I finally got a picture of this nice leather purse I purchased before I got home from abroad.
It’s small enough to not detract from the awesomeness of what the costume will be, but large enough that I’ll be able to keep some money and small souvenirs or papers and stuff. It’s even something I’ve been using in real life, because it’s cute, and just enough space to for wallets and such.
I’ll see you soon when I finish the time rotor!
