So proud of myself today! With the LOVELY weather and a short shift at work, I was able to get my last bit of spray painting done and am now like 80% complete with Raven's belt!
These are the Gold Settings. I used Model Magic to form them, straight pins and jewelry closures, (which will be used to attach them to the chain) and Gold Spray paint. I intentionally left the part where the gems go unpainted so that the glue (hot glue) would not be weakened by the spray paint.
I also took a couple of snapshots of my work spaces since I actually had some today. Sadly, I forgot to take a pic of the table WHILE I was working so this is what it looked like right after.
And this is my sewing table with the accessories drying (that is an inverted tomato cage)
Tomorrow I plan to complete the belt by gluing and assembling. I also will start some sewing on most likely on Pocahontas' dress. Finally, I will start on Raven's cloak by pinning the pattern to the fabric.

I really liked that first wig, but they didn't have the color I wanted-
/>/>/>/>/>/> - it's a bit bright of a brown. I did find a wig that didn't have those fibers underneath and a bun-like hairpiece- 100% accurate? no but it should at least keep the hair in place. Also got my shoes!! Here's my stuff of the day. I was just messing around with the wig- it will definitely need to be styled again before ACen- and it has the correct length bangs, but no side chin-length bangs so needs some alterations. (and I'll see what I can do about getting my American girl doll up here- it is currently at my old house).
Ugh. I hate when that happens! But the wig that you did find looks really good! I thought it was your own hair at first! That is always a good thing. And the shoes look great. Are they real ballet shoes?! Look like it!
Well it looks like you are pulling things together very well! I hope you are able to get the doll. I have one I'd lend you...but it's porcelain and....well...ACen is not porcelain friendly.
