I’m feeling bright and sunny! :)
In true Vanessa fashion, I spent my first day out of the hospital SLEEPING, as if I didn’t do more than enough of that already. XD
It’s my rest week-and-a-half and I’m absolutely thrilled to have more time to do things outside of a hospital room. I’m going to attempt to sew some clothes for my dolls, and maybe take coordinate pictures. I’m definitely feeling stronger than the last time I had a rest week, so maybe I’ll accomplish more this time around?
I’m also looking forward to spending time with my boyfriend. He visits me in the hospital and all, but it’s different when I’m mostly stuck to my bed and completely un-glamorous in my hospital gown. XD
I’m so excited to actually DO things. AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH

Wig Wishlist - The Naturals

I’ve made wig wishlists in the past, but this time, it’s for a good reason. I’ve posted fairly frequently about my leukemia and my hair loss, and I’m expecting that I’ll be completely bald by the end of the second round of chemotherapy.

This list is more of the colors I would count as “natural”, considering my true hair color, with auburn being the lightest that I’ll probably ever go if I were to get my hair colored in real life.

Row 1: Blacks
Straight Classic Collection, Farrah Collection Vamp, Princess Collection Masako

Row 2: Dark Browns
Straight Classic Collection, Farrah Collection Femme Fatale, Princess Collection Dark Brown

Row 3: Auburns
Straight Classic Collection, Farrah Collection Showstopper, Spiraluxe Collection Cinnamon Swirl

Project: Sheryl Nome (Update 1 - wig, lenses, makeup, earring)
Sorry about the sparkles, I couldn’t help it! Finally had a little time to do a Sheryl trial, yay!
Wig - This is the base wig of my old GLW Babydoll Strawberries and Cream. It’s a bit thin for my liking, but at least it’s the right color? XD I’ll be harvesting wefts from another GLW wig to make this one thicker. Time to break out the toupee clips, this wig’s gonna be heavy. OTL
Circle lenses - Love the color! These are Vanilla Eyes lenses, I’ll be reviewing them thoroughly later on. Biggest downside I need to point out is that THESE LENSES GIVE YOU BRIGHT BLUE TUNNEL VISION. My pupils were too dilated. ; A ;
Makeup - I know that Sheryl was mostly plain-faced in the anime, so I just tried to do something to make my eyes look more animated. I’m considering drawing my eyeliner differently to achieve a more anime-eye effect. MIGHT do another makeup trial soon.
Earring - I have literally BLED for this cosplay accessory. I was cutting some thin metal pieces when a jagged edge snagged my skin AND SUDDENLY BLOOD. TT ~ TT I also pretty much went nuts hunting for appropriately colored gems to put on the earring, but had to settle for using blue marker on a light blue gem. XD The green pearl’s a little big, too. I guess I’ll be on the lookout for materials to make a new pair, I’m not completely satisfied with this one yet. :(

Gloomy skies ahead?
I left for work yesterday and the skies were looking pretty gloomy. While I don’t particularly look forward to the inconveniences of commuting during the rainy season, I want to escape from the ridiculous heat. :(

Wandering back to the dark side…
… even for just a bit. I adore lively, bright colors so much, but sometimes I feel like going with a darker palette. I’ve got a couple of things lined up that I hope to shoot very soon! For now, have an old pic from a set I didn’t get to post much of. XD

Briar Rose (on LOOKBOOK.nu)
I was originally planning to wear a Maleficent-inspired coord when I manage to watch Maleficent, but decided I wanted to wear something a lot lighter, hence the Briar Rose-inspired outfit. :) Dad asked me if I wanted to watch with him, and I hurriedly pulled this outfit together. I’m still amazed that I managed to remember that I owned all these pieces, given the perpetual state of mess that my wardrobe is in. I should probably work on organizing it more. XD
