Description
Designed this in a flash of inspiration the other day. I've always loved looking at EGL costumes, but felt bored with their black/white/pink monotone schemes. I wanted to do something colorful! I was planning to do it in the far-off future, but a sudden sale at Cosworx.com prompted me to start purchasing bits and pieces for it.

This will challenge my sewing and patterning skills tremendously! I'm excited. It will also mean some new elements of wig styling, such as making ponytails, working with wefts, and boil curling.

Accessories and some pieces are already purchased:
-Black wig
-Purple extensions
-Platform mary janes (they're baby pink, will need painting)
-Black gloves
-Mini top hat (pre-decorated, will have to have trim torn off and repainted)
-Boning for corset
-Black petticoat

I am looking far and wide for fabrics in the right shades of teal and violet.
