YAY done! will add some photos when I remember to dig out my cable and actually upload them
so close (Posted 13th October 2008)
everything is done apart from the tiaras, just a last coat of varnish and then the gems to be stuck on and we're done!! (clips attached, sleeves done, earrings and broach glued!) woo might even get it done today! - oh and my tights turned up too!
nearly there (Posted 6th October 2008)
Made some good progress yesterday. Have done and attached all the bows including my hair bow. all that I have left sewing wise is to attach my sleeves and one small hem on the skirt.
Just need to go and buy some superglue, as the tidying-up fairly has hidden it so well i can't find it. Oh well it was nearly empty anyway!
slightly more productive (Posted 29th September 2008)
So had a productive day yesterday, final coats of paint on the tiaras, so ready for clip + gem attachments and varnishing. re-made the broach and earrings which are now varnished, just waiting on gluing in place. the main fuku is done bar the sleeves and white trim and skirt hemming. Finally found some gloves that fit, so will remake the tops and attach later. Yay almost there!!
gloves of fail (Posted 22nd September 2008)
made one, van put in on but not bend my arm. Bugger. Will have to remake later as I'm working on the fuku now, have the white top half almost done, the sleeve bit just need adding.
gloves (Posted 19th September 2008)
I has a left hand glove half sewn togther! After discovering that my arms are a little too big for costume shop evening gloves I've had to make my own. Oh well!
in the beginning there was.. (Posted 15th September 2008)
... a huge pile of fabric.
Ok so I have all my fabric now (bought some wadding this morning). I have made the earrings and broach for the front bow from fimo, and gave them a coat os yellow paint as the yellow fimo didn't end up the exact right colour. Just need a cost of varnish and gluing to the broach pin and the earrings to the studs.
Have also painted shoes, they just need a final coat of paint and they should be done.
Started on the tiaras (making caylith and Silver's too while I'm at it) cut the shapes from craft foam and scored the edges to look like the metal ridges, first coat of paint on. Need another 1 or two, followed by some varnish to harden them a little (make them look more like metal) and clips attaching (if they ever get here - long story)
time to start cutting fabric tonight.
