|Going to be made for Bristol New Years Club Night. I wanted something nice and warm to wear as it's getting stupidly cold (and seeing as I've got pneumonia again seemed like a good idea!) so we decided on rewearing our Golden Sun costumes. Seeing as Mia is just a bit warmer dressed than Menardi and I don't want to rush her remake I'm switching to her while Jack is sticking with Alex.|
Should be nice and quick to make as it's not a tricky costume at all so I'm starting now along with my ball costume to get them both out the way early. Going to go for similar fabrics as Alex so we match and seeing as they're from the same clan and would likely have the same kind of clothing. Looking forward to a nice comfy costume again!
Unsure if I'll take the staff to the club with me but I've already got the Mercury Djinn so he'll definitely be coming!
All finished. Took only a few days in the end and was ready in time for the ball though I didn't wear it. Will post pics in the next couple of days!
Half way! (Posted 15th November 2010)
Got everything cut out as of yesterday. Although it's got a bit of stretch in it I'm still going for princess seams on the top just for a nicer fit. Going to sew it all together today then it's just the details and put the zips in. Managed to get everything bar the purple for the trim so I'll be ordering that from my normal online seller. Waiting for the wig to arrive too but there's not really much to do on that so that's not too urgent.
Having a go at making some proper gloves for the first time, I've always done the draw around the hand method so this time I'm going to experiment with the proper way to do them. It's more work to do compared to the basic way but it should give a much nicer fit on the palm.
Fabric shopping (Posted 10th November 2010)
Managed to get most of the fabric yesterday in town. Got some lovely thick jerseys for the trousers, cape and the dress. Just need to get a nice purple for the trim, a red for the cape lining and a dark blue for the detailing. For the meantime though I can get on with making the base of everything and get most things made up by tomorrow.
Got a beautiful wig for her too! It's a great blue/turquise shade and is really thick too!
