Costume Information

General
Cost : £51.68
Time Taken : A week on the main costume & 19+ hours on the Wings

Description
So nearly finished. Just need to finish someone on the wings and wait for the wig to arrive. Then it should be finished. And I honestly can't wait for May, it's going to be so much fun!

...Apart from the bag (Which I might make) and the Wig which needs to arrive, I've finished it. Yes it does feel good. But it does feel like a dream. I don't feel like I've actually done it. Maybe it was because the wings dragged on that I don't believe it.

Looks brilliant :D How did you make the wings??

by Archer on Monday, 20 December, 2010 - 00:57

Thank you! I didn't make them, I bought them off ebay and added everything onto them. The beads are just threaded onto pieces of string and sewn onto the wings. The rockets are just embroidery threads sewn on in a rocket pattern and the glitters just glitter glue. :3

Journal

Complete (Posted 8th December 2010)

It has been completed. I would take some outside shots but considering how cold it is and how thin my costume is, I don't want to risk freezing myself.
The wig is amazing quality and fits like a dream. I can't wait for the group in May. :3 And to see other peoples costumes!

Thought (Posted 26th September 2010)

I had a little thought pop up today that might work with the costume. Since the original outfit Mulan has on (seen in the pic) has long green sleeves, and the fairy has short ones, I might be a bit cold. So what I thought I could do was get some green material similar to the green shirt I have and make some tattered armwarmers that look like they're part of the shirt.
Would this be any good? What do people think?

Update (Posted 12th September 2010)

The reason I haven't been updating any of my costumes recently (which includes parts of this one) is because of the fact that I'm working on the wings for this costume. So far I've spent roughly 5-7 hours sewing these stupid beads onto them and I haven't even finished the rockets yet! I still have one more to do. I'll try and plonk some photos of them on here when I find the connector for my phone and have finished the last rocket.

90% completed (Posted 1st September 2010)

90%...Kind of. Around about.
I have three/four things to do.
1. Finish editing the wings. I need to do some serious work on them sometime soon.
2. Buy the wig. I won't be doing this until after October Expo since I'm tight on money at the moment so I'm kind of limited on what I buy for now.
3. Make the yellow top. It's in progress at the moment, working on where it's going and how I'm going to attach it to places.
4. Find the shoes I'm using. I know I have a pair of pumps somewhere because I used them for a different costume. I just don't know where they are at the moment. But they definitely are completed.

Thats about it, I'll keep it updated as much as possible!

Yellow Shirt and Skirt (Posted 4th August 2010)

Both of them are completed to a certain extent. The Skirt I need to attach to the blue part when I get it. It also needs to be cut down since I had to attach two parts of the material together to get it to fit around me. That will be attached around the edge and cut. The top I'll be using the spare material from what I used for the skirt for this. That will either be attached to the blue material or the green shirt I will be using.
