False hair for eyes

I think I am going to give false eyelashes a go. 
Even though, I think that my eyelashes are fake looking enough with mascara, it will be amazing to unreal them Hurr~ 

Ah didn't rotate this picture. Well anyways, I know that I am suppose to cut them. According to my eye, but how? Cut the sides? I mean...just cut it? Not the length?
Should just give it a go. Actually, I am pretty afraid. The glue. 
How to remove them? I have seen that they turned rubbery after they are dried. Then just peel them off?
How to clean lashes? I am sure that if wigs sometimes need to be washed, lashes too?
Not with water? With... alcohol? 

Cut 1 of the 6 lashes to make the 'ends' of a pair seems to have more volume. 
Hmm.. I don't really like the not-blended-volume look. But oh well, I don't think people will notice the details. -cross fingers-
 And glue them together! Oh crap, I didn't take after picture. Heh~

I have no idea. But I am going to carry on. 
If it fails, then at least I tried. I can try again.

Erased and Replaced

Just started on watching Kamisama Dolls. I think I will follow this anime. Heh, just because there is a silver haired guy in the 1st episode named Aki. Hurr~
Progressing on Tiger and Bunny. <3
On episode 21 now. Its sad that Kotestu is being set up. I always knew that Maverick is such an evil dick. Anime intuition is right. Yosh!
Argh man! I feel like jumping in and save Tiger. -rolls around mad-
Should start catching up on Ao no Exorcist and Bleach. 
Lots of other anime to catch up to eh. Damn my procrastinating self.

Today I bought the PVC for Motochika's armour, boots and wrist armour too. 
and looking at a classmate's sequined bag gave me an idea that I should not paint my costume. Instead, I should make the designs out of sequins!
Hell yeah~

Ah the shamisen is a little complete. 

 The body first. Cardboard power.
Then glued 2 pieces of wood together with epoxy. Secured with tape at 8cm alternate length. Hope will not snap apart or something. 
The two pictures above combo to get this. So now, what is left is the neck. I plan to use high density foam and the tuner-thing with plain rolled paper hardened with white glue.
Need to get the decorations for this dear soon!

EOY is  approaching really soon. -shivers-

Ah crap, sewing machine is busted again.

Hollow box?

Props update this time round

Progressing really slowly with EOY's costume and props. I aim to finish the shamisen by end of September. But since today is a holiday, there is no work. Yosh~ So glad. Manage to draft out the proportions for the Shamisen. I admit its fun, but a little confusing.

In the end, the cut out body is not really proportionate to what I measured and planned as I am running out of cardboard! So, I have to halt the progress and wait for the IKEA table to be assembled so that I can use the cardboard box. Hurr~

Just the middle of the dO. Will need 3 more of this piece and a long long board to be the side. Then can attach the wooden sao. 

The challenge is going to be the elaborate head. I plan to make the itomaki actually turns. This will facilitate if there are any need to change the strings. Will be most fun and cool if its actually playable.
