LOL that would be hilarious! awesome at the same time XD I really am thinking about starting it next year or something - this is one of the few from my cosplay list that I'm VERY attracted to atm but it's gonna be expensive when I calculated what I needed...

Kila my dear you look GORGEOUS!! :D I love the make up and how you decided to use is it chiffon (?) for the sleeves - it gives the outfit a more gothic elegant feel - I love it! <3 <3 <3

yes, its chiffon.. i was lookin at various fabric and eventually chose it cos it seemed more floaty and pretty :)

stockings LowComplete
neck ribbon and ribbons of dooomLowComplete
hair bowLowComplete
main dressLowComplete
black ear studsLowComplete


more progress (Posted 27th July 2011)

sleeves done more or less, just gotta sew on the ribbon and attach. did some tester shots with what i have so far tho its mostly just the wig and makeup i did it for. still not sure if i need to make the eye makeup more dramatic. eyebrows i still cant work out how to make blonde effectively yet. also didnt bind in the pics so sorry for boobage

progresss (Posted 16th July 2011)

skirts now attached, tho i realised i still have to add more ribbon to the sides o em but thats no biggie. also cut out the material for the sleeves so can start that soon.

skirtage (Posted 12th July 2011)

finsihd the ribbon off the other day, added on cap sleeves with leftover dress material and pinned the first skirt on. woohoo progress! cap sleeves still need neatened up but can wait for now

started ribbon sewing (Posted 9th July 2011)

started sewing on the ribbon onto the skirts, one done so far, took about 2-3 hours hand sewing. im not doin it in ruffles cos honestly i wud then need twice the amount of ribbon im already using and then it wud cost me about 30quid so intstead im jst gonna go with the crinkled look. picture doesnt really show the grey colour rite its a lot darker and the crinkles will show when the skirt is attached

finished hemming skirts (Posted 3rd July 2011)

thats the worst bit for them really, attachin ribbon some time next week tho i have a friend over so wont be doin much sewin i doubt.. will go into hyper extreme sewin mode after that to get this done in time for sept :S

ribbon n skirts (Posted 30th June 2011)

bought the ribbon today for the skirts, so much o it too and quite pricy :O *criessss* anyways that will go on the skirts after iv finished hemming them

startin... (Posted 12th June 2011)

wanted to get goin on this costume even tho my holiday hasnt officially started yet but it was hangin on my door goin PAY ATTENTION TO ME. so far iv cut out the material for ths skirts, may start sewing them 2mos. also found some extra stuff in my material box can use for the upper sleeves to make em more poofy

the start (Posted 8th April 2011)

even tho i dont have material yet i really wanted to start this so i started with the basic customisation of the dress.. just removin various bows n lace already attached and cuttng it shorter... and my god is it short. thank goodness i get to wear shorts under this. corset and long sleeves are next on the list methinks... also... grey (?) lace around the top of dress and puffed out sleeves. also maybe some more pleats for the front skirt so its a bit bigger?
