|so when we saw the images from the 25 year anniversary "wedding" for FOTNS we really wanted to do the outfits, but then when we found out about the new game that is being released we basically peed ourselves in excitement, |
not sure what event this will be for but I'm sure we can fit it in somewhere.
I really didn't like this costume once I'd finished, we were late to the event that I wore it to so I got dresses in a bit of a hurry, I managed to rip one of the sleeves off just before going on stage and didn't sort my wig properly so it looks very flat and shiny =(
I'm sure I'll wear it again at some point and be a lot happier with it but at the moment the dress is banished to the back of my wardrobe where I don't have to look at it...
Childish? yes, do i care? no
The next step (Posted 5th May 2010)
so i worked on the skirt last night and made the base,
the first pic is a side snap and the second pig in the front shot before i added the tulle section, you can see just a little in the second pic that the back isnt that much longer than the front, i've left it this way so i can decide at my leisure what heels i want to wear and trim the front once i know where the skirt will meet the floor,
i've also stolen an idea from liz's wedding dress and am putting in a hook up point so i can keep the train out of the way whilst walking around expo
the third part is the built in underskirt, i'll still need to wear a hoop but it will be mich smaller that my previous dresses and a LOT less obvious
it has a cotton top section which meets a lower sinthetic inner at which point a single layer of still tulle is attached
for the time being i have put a 6" zip in the back of the skirt and have finished it neately from the inside, i've just put a line of stay stiching around the top to keep the skirt and underskirt together because i havent yet decided if i want to make it as an all in one dress or a 2 piece top and skirt, i'm sure i'll decide over the next few days as the whole thing comes together
for now..... sleeps!

So I finaly decided on a wig... although I'm not entirely happy with it I think I've left it a bit late to be picky,
Well next job is the actual sewing part. (God help me!)
making a start, (Posted 26th April 2010)
So I bought my fabric this weekend after settling on a white dutchess satin that I managed to snap up for 5.99 a mtr and have drawn out the plan for how i'm going to make it and how I need to break it down and I just need to draw up the template for the patterning and do some dip-dying tests,
Still can't find a wig of a sutable type and am contemplating dying my own hair worse case
