|Time Taken :||3-ish hours so far|
|So we've had a bit of a change of plan with this one. It isn't going to be a cosplay as such, more of a halloween costume. It's perfect for a Club Noir (burlesque) event, so I think we'll try and get it done for then. Luck (and parents) have graced me with a sewing machine finally, and my know-how is still intact, so I've tracked down the perfect pattern and fabric and after a bit of practice we should be ready to roll!|
|Buy wound makeup||Low||Planned|

|Fake blood||£3.99||To Buy|
|Satin back crepe||£14.95||To Buy|
|Contrasting satin back crepe||£5.99||To Buy|
Pfff (Posted 10th December 2010)
Well, looks like I can't do May '11 Expo either, so this is another one that'll have to be shelved.
Little Progress :( (Posted 22nd August 2010)
So eBay seller lady still hasn't sent out my swatches after a week and a half. Oh well. I'm off to London tomorrow and I'm back on Thursday so hopefully they'll be waiting for me when I get back ~_¬ But I have managed to get some material with which to make the mock-up of the corset. My Dad is cleaning out his house so he can rent it out and he was getting rid of a bunch of bedding. So I snagged a hideous looking undersheet which I can cut and pin when the time comes XD Hopefully more eventful updates to follow...
Success and indecision (Posted 9th August 2010)
Okay, so the hooks are done and I don't have to worry about them anymore. They've got two coats of paint and all they need is perhaps a little fake blood to make them look used XD
So~ (Posted 3rd August 2010)
I started making the hooks today. They're just cardboard and a couple of cocktail sticks to keep them sturdy. I'll papier mache the second one the day after tomorrow; I did the first one today and it was a disaster @___@ I don't quite know what I got wrong but I'll try again and see what's what.
Brainwave (Posted 5th July 2010)
I've had a thought about how to make myself look barefoot for this costume. My plan is to buy a pair of tan ballet shoes and wear them under my tights. Then at least I don't have any obvious shoes on and I'm not tramping the ExCeL in bare feet x.x
Planning, planning, planning (Posted 30th June 2010)
It's probably utter madness for me to want to make this costume myself. Since I haven't done any sewing in eight years and don't actually own a sewing machine. But anyway, it'll be a nice project for me.
