Another update (Posted 6th August 2010)

Well i got some more progress done, this time on the actual outfit. It wasn't much but i feel its a strong start^^
I managed to sort out the patterns for the sleeves (plus the trim at the ends) so that is all ready for fabric! I'm looking very much forward to making this outfit, its going to be fun! :3

PROGRESS FINALLY!!! (Posted 13th July 2010)

I finally have some progress its taken me a while but thats what happens when your a full time mum :3.

I now have the shoes i wanted to get (as you can see in the photos section)
I also researched how to make proper plush spheres as its a bit more complicated than once thought but i have mastered that and have started making them for my tail ^^. I currently have 2 complete and have 7 more to go!

Shall try and get pics of sphere making ASAP ^^

Progress report 3 (Posted 20th June 2010)

I paid another visit to my material guy and he had a loooovely fabric for Adianes dress and so i gathered it up and got myself some :D.
ALSO i found the perfect style and size for Adiane's shoes i was sooo happy just got to find me some shoe dye to dye them to match the fabric as they are currently red.

Next on my list to do will be finding the materials for the design on her sleeves and skirt ^^

Progress report 2. (Posted 14th June 2010)

So far on progress for Adiane-sama i have the following...

1.located some white fabric i plan on using to line her sleeves and possibly for the trim on the neck and ends of the sleeves (if i have enough left to do so)

2.Been on a hunt for some Adiane shoes which has been hell because when i have found a pair they arent big enough for the pair of big feet my body stands upon *laughs*.

3.Been searching around for some wigs have narrowed it down to three which are nice and long and have bits of black in with the blue which i think would be nice to have :).

4. Have been having some difficulty finding a corset making tutorial i can wrap my brain around (usually i would be able to but alas when having a baby daughter now my mind isn't exactly shipshape).
If i dont find some help for making a corset i have something on standby i may be able to get my hands on *wiggles eyebrows*

5. I have asked the person i get all my fabrics off to keep an eye out for the PERFECT colour fabric for Adiane's dress...i just hope he finds it :)

So in the next few weeks i will be making the sleeves lining ^^

Progress report 1. (Posted 7th June 2010)

I have started to think about what materials to use for different parts of this outfit.
I think for the dress itself i might use medium-heavy material this is purely because october maybe quite chilly so thus using medium to heavy fabrics will keep me that bit warmer, hopefully not too warm.
I think for Adianes tail i have had 2 ideas these are as follows...

1. Polystyrene/foam balls held together with wire.
2.make some balls out of fabric and stuff them, sew them all together and just have the tail hanging.

I will keep thinking up ideas as i have enough time to do so.

As for Adiane's markings accross her legs, chest and neck i have enquired about making some of my own latex body paint as i think this will give a nice effect and i dont want to have to spend most of my day re-applying something like snazaroo to myself.

I think my next report i would have started some pattern making for the dress so watch this space! ^^
