I'm not sure how I did it to be honest ^^;; - I remember it took a lot of planning, manipulation of pattern pieces, loss of sleep and determination lol

Nah kidding lol - I simply had to hand sew the beads, sew a load of lace trimmings together, gather at least 2 and 1/2m of fabric a lot of the time and walla - I don;t think the results were that bad...

But thanks very much for asking!! *HUGS* I'm sure you can make one of these! You're very talented yourself! ^_~

So glad that I got to wear this at JAF and soo happy people said nice things about it ^_~ Thanks everyone! XXX

Photos DONE! (Posted 6th July 2010)

Finally got better photos after a couple of months after finishing this beauty ^_~ Damn proud of it still!

this is what happens when I'm bored.. ^^; (Posted 31st May 2010)

Though this wasn't a cosplay, I wanted for ages to make an outfit that I designed myself - somehow, it was less pressure to make than as opposed to a cosplay - Finished my outfit at last and damn proud of it!! ^_~

Reference design (Posted 30th May 2010)

Had to redesign the back as the trimming I was originally planning to use gave this design a problem ^^;;
