Okay, so I promised earlier, and now my hair is dyed blue black, and I'm happy enough with the fail!pics to put a couple up for you to see. Since it's just been dyed, I've decided not to use fixer in it, so it's only pinned back, and it is FLUFFY from having just been washed and blow dried. Haha. Ishida does not have these problems. If anything, it is still a bit long -- but it is still my hair, and I have to go out wearing it, in a non-cosplaying context.

Oh noes! There is a Mayuri on my ceiling! )

And dis is the back of ma head. )

Soraya and I had our first proper -out- ride in a long time. We cantered after some bicycles, were scared of a bunch of cows and got a stone wedged in the left hind until I yanked it back out again. Oh, and talked to some of the neighbours, which I haven't done in six years of being here.

I brought her home and she was wet - considering we only went about 8k, it was a bit much. She is extremely out of shape, but I am a lot more confident about taking her out now - she's been behaving so badly recently that I've been worrying myself about it, which is stupid.

Of course getting her over the motorway? I don't think it's going to happen any time soon, and that's really sad because the best forest-walks for miles are over there. She dealt with all of one lorry while we were out and treated it like a monster that wanted to eat her, and as we walked over the brow of the hill she watched the motorway the whole time and gave me a warning snort.

So of course she had a big roll the moment I let her go, and as I was expecting it, I took a bunch of pictures that are under the cut:

Today I am pretty much exhausted. I got a delivery of beautiful purple hair in the post yesterday for my Mirai Trunks (Dragonball Z) outfit, but it's so lovely I suspect I'll be wearing it just for laughs sometimes. I love wigs - by next October I should have eight, in many rainbow colours. :D The Dragonball Evolution movie looks to be awful, so we're organising a DB/Z/GT group for MCM Expo as a kind of rebellion against wanton destruction of retro favourites. Purple wig is purple.

I am still working hard, which sucks, but I've been drawing and writing in between the work, which doesn't. I'm on a break from costume making, though, in order to divert attention from my doing it all the time, so that I can go out and buy 50 euros worth of black and white fabric soon to make Renji, Hitsugaya, Grimmjow and Ulquiorra for October. As you can probably tell, there's huge amounts of work to do there, so it will all come in time.

Right now my Ishida has progressed. If you absolutely must see it, it's under the cut. I am remaking the hakama (the skirt/trousers underneath) since they came out just horrible.

*reloads the printer*

And I will probably post the first part of my first Bleach fic tonight. I'm going to run a fine toothcomb over it and insinuate a little more, and play with the imagery since I think I've been a little lazy with the prose. Evil scientists ftw.

Okay, so I have been busy in what little spare time I have, costuming. I don't do this too often, but I really get stuck in when I do. I've done stage one, that means that the basic costuming is complete - it's only the details that need doing now, and are well in progress.

Behind a cut, to not clutter up LJs with picspam.
