I have stuff! However, much (read: all!) is spoileriffic for Adult Swim-only fans. ^^;;

Mirror Etching Pattern (linked due to size)

To use this, you scale this to an appropriate size for the mirror you want to etch (this one should be a medium-sized mirror or larger). Transfer the image onto white contact paper. Place the contact paper over the mirror making sure there are no bubbles. Now for the fun part. Cut out all the dark areas with an X-Acto knife. After you do that, wash all the residue from the exposed parts. Brush glass etching cream onto the exposed design parts. Wash off the cream after the specified amount of time. Remove all contact paper. Presto, etched mirror. This will consume your soul or something, but it can turn out wonderfully. Here's one I did a while ago, from Utena (although it did need to be cleaned): Castle of Dios, Mirror Style!

Pics as almost always by Eurobeat King. Yes, you guys HAVE seen my Wrath costume, but this time there's two new pics worthy of posting on the community.

FYI, the official tattoos WILL stay on while you wander barefoot for an entire con. It won't stay clean, but it WILL stay on.

Thankies a kajillion times to wiccat for agreeing to do this stoooooopid pose with me.

Ooh, that's pretty cool...I may have to try that. Thanks! :D

Very cute pictures X3 You make an adorable Wrath! And I just noticed that you have your arm and leg darker. It looks really good and very natural!

I really don't know...I bought mine from a vendor at a convention. ><

However, this thing that miss_arel gave me might help:

I wouldn't mind having a Hughes mirror. XD

Hughes mirror pattern!

This one is a LOT simpler than the Sins design, but its difficulty level is about the same, because there's so many fine lines. Have a TON of new X-Acto blades on hand. Although this time I decided to clean it up... no extraneous crap to get rid of, so that makes it a bit easier.

Re: Hughes mirror pattern!
Alright. I think I'll show it to my art teacher, maybe I can do it as a project for her class. :3

Re: Hughes mirror pattern!
Hey, no prob. It wasn't that hard to make the pattern.

On a different note, would you mind horribly if I used that pattern myself? (I have a boyfriend who practically IS Hughes, and it would make an amusing Christmas gift.)

Re: Hughes mirror pattern!
I don't care at all. XD

Gah! See what I mean about Al not being able to take any good pictures of me? *scribbles self out of picture*
inutsuzuki on November 21st, 2004 05:30 pm (UTC)
LOL that's why you just make him take pics until he gets a good one ^-^; that's what I always do to him at every con. He got some REALLY good ones of us at Nekocon this year... finally.

hmm, maybe I'll do that next time XD Normally I avoid his camera like the plague, but how could one turn down a request from cute little Wrath? XD
inutsuzuki on November 21st, 2004 08:54 pm (UTC)
Hehe, Al's a pretty good friend of mine actually. I should show you some of the pics he got of my FMA group at Nekocon. He's a cool guy. really >.>.... ^-^
Wiccat: Cheetah Envy (rootoftheoracle)wiccat on November 21st, 2004 08:56 pm (UTC)
Yeah, he'll usually come up to me and try to ask for pictures, but I'm so unphotogenic XD I wanna see pics!
