Tauriel Cosplay - Updates and Accessories

Ok, let me just admit it: I haven't done much work on my costume. There. I said it. Moving on! ;)

I have been rather busy with a few other things, though... Getting ready for my second dual-enrollment class that starts tomorrow... and slowly but surely starting all the other subjects. (I'm homeschooled, if you haven't guessed by now, so that's how why my school schedule sounds so odd...lol!)

But, don't worry - I won't be *nearly* busy enough to forget about this blog and my latest adventure! :D

So, just yesterday, I started working on a PVC pipe bow using this tutorial, which is specifically for re-creating Tauriel's bow! I'm really excited about making it and how it will turn out. :D However, this project has gone on hold for a little while as my helper (my dad!) will be working for the next couple days. But, hopefully, the bow will be done soon! :)

A few other items regarding my Tauriel costume that will (hopefully!) happen over the next couple of weeks:


I plan on ordering some gorgeous faux leather that is a *perfect* match to the boots I purchased several months ago for the costume... (pictured above - aren't they just superb? :D)

Another thing that will (most likely) happen is a shopping excursion for the fabric to make the dress portion of the costume.

And one last thing: to the left is the finishing touch to my Tauriel cosplay - elf ears! :D

    1. Thanks!! :D Oh, no prob. ;) Well... hm. If you mean another website, you can get them from Amazon.com as well. But, if you're looking for an actual store that carries them, I'm afraid I don't know of one. :/

    1. ;D And yep, the ears do stay on! You just have to apply a bit of spirit gum and they'll stay on all day. :)
