|Time Taken :||6 months (on and off)|
|I LOVE this costume. It's such a shame that my wig came out so fizzy.|
This entire costume was made by hand (without a sewing machine) and the embroidery took forever to do, but I'm so proud with how it came out :D I went with colours that seemed more...natural. The beige is a suede-y material and the purple a velvet (they seemed to be the best materials when looking at the refer. pictures).

Hmm, this gonna take longer than intended (Posted 8th September 2011)
I've actually decided to write a journal entry for a costume for once.
Well, I found out that while my mini sewing machine doesn't mind three layers of material, it won't do four so I managed to finish hand-sewing the top together last night, now I need to do the eyelets so I can do it up and make any adjustments, and then add the bias binding to the top and bottom. After some 'leather' cord to tie it up, I should be finished with the top.
