|Florence was really sooo nice to cosplay last Expo.. I want to do her again, and I LOVE feathers so I couldnt resist trying to make this black dress with feathers costume which she wore around 2009, eg NME tour Manchester, teenage cancer trust gig, etc.. |
I do have another track in mind for masquerade - hopefully Expo will have another special Florence 'Live' performance. XD
As far as I can tell the feathers are not actually attatched to the dress, as I've spotted her wearing the feathers with different black dresses. I think it is just like a shrug which ties under the arms and around the back. ..and when she gets hot she just takes it off, as you do. ^_^ (Ive seen some feather capes on eBy but they were wayyyy expensive!! so I'm gonna make my own)
Progress will be in Journal if you want to follow.
Getting materials together (Posted 16th July 2010)
Woohoo, I has Feathers!
Since the feather capes on eBy are like £50 to buy (!!) I was really pleased to find these feathers at a good price so I can make my own. They come on a strip (fringe) sold by the yard. I bought two yards total £10.12 inc P&P. Hope that's enough for 3 layers of feathers..
