|My favourite era of movies is the 80's fanatsy films. I really wanted to pay a tribute to them in the form of costumes. I am a huge fan of the artist Brian Froud who designed the characters for both 'The Dark Crystal' and 'Labyrinth'. |
I wanted something that was going to be quite easy to make so I went for the Gelfling Kira.
She is one I can do with my own hair and pale complexion. I really love her wings and so I want to try and build them.
If I have time and budget I might build a puppet of her loyal pet, Fizzgig.

Cloak (Posted 28th January 2011)
Starting setting up the pattern today ready fro staring hopefully later on or tomorrow. I've got this lovely forest green soft suedette that will work for it. I must remember to leave slots for the wings XD
Making a start (Posted 23rd December 2010)
This is going to be a costume project that I will build in between other costumes until I decide on a date for her. I would love to get her done ready for the spring as I would love to do a spring themed photoshoot.
