Costume Information

Description
Worn Sunday of MCM Expo London May 2010.
It was originally planned that we do Phantom of the Opera versions of Gakupo and Miku for the ball at MCM Expo London October 2009, but the designs for these costumes are just omnomnom.
But then we ran out of time to make them.
So we moved them to May instead.

This was such a bitch to make D<
I had so many problems with the pattern and then I ran out of fabric and then I couldn't find gold trim and I made the boots the day before I had to leave for Expo.
Fecking disaster.
However, it seemed to go down well.
Lots of poeple liked it, though I'm not sure many recognised it.
I'd like to wear it again sometime, but it needs a hell of a lot of work and a brand new wig.

Thanks 8d
That colour was a complete accident tbh.
The dye didn't do what I intended it to, but it turned out alright. . .

Journal

-bashes the face against the desk- (Posted 8th May 2010)

So, when I said 'Oh yeah, I'll have my costumes finished by march (y)', I most definately, absolutely did lie.
I didn't mean to, but it just happened.
And now I have not-being-able-to-fing-goddamn-gold-leaves-in-embroidered-patch-format issues.
Seriously, you'd think they'd be everywhere, but. . . they're not.
So, if anyone can enlighten me as to where I can buy them, I won't have to resort to attempting my own.
Or I could go without, but that would irk me to no end and I'd probably refuse to wear this costume at Expo.
FailyFailMcFail.

So. . . (Posted 15th March 2010)

. . . I have actually started this.
I've made the basic jacket, but still need to add the collar, cuffs, lapels and lining.
I've also started on the shirt, which is, like, an XXXXXXXL mans shirt from Primark, which I'm just taking in and using the excess fabric for the ruffles.
I also have crap loads of Organdy (some sort of organza-like stuff, but a lot cheaper) for the bustle he insists on having.
Still can't find purple vinyl Dx
But once I have, it's just a matter of sticking it to mah boots.
And then edging it all with gold ribbon 8D
