|Cost :||Wince-inducing amounts of money|
|Time Taken :||2 days! HELL YEAH!|
|Five months after the event, finally, we have a photoshoot. In fact have been pimping this dress out a lot lately as it's being worn in an upcoming music video I'm making with Monkey, Kirokitsune and Bedoc! Look out for it <3|
All the cool kids are putting up their ball costumes so I thought I would too! This is going to be the first time I've actually cosplayed to the Cosplay Ball, so I'm really excited!
I'm designing a fancy ballgown to wear as Hungary (seeing as I'm attending with a Prussia and Russia. There ARE drawings, but my drawings are too atrocious to subject the internet to. So - um - description.
It's going to be green. Yeah. And lacy. Very lacy. Yeah.
If you see me at the ball, please dance with me! *_*
FINISHED (Posted 24th November 2010)
Yesterday I locked myself up and started this dress. Today I finished it. There was a lot of coffee and a lot of lace, but the whole thing was accomplished, amazingly, with minimal swearing.
This is probably the prettiest thing I've ever made! I'm so proud of it! It's also the best made - I think my sewing's really come along this year! And it took the shortest time...-marvels-
I am SO excited for the ball!
Just need to to work out shoes and make my accessories and I'm ready to go!
The Quest! (Posted 16th November 2010)
I found the perfect apple-green silk dupion for this dress. And then I did not buy it.
Reader, I was doomed never to see that apple-green silk dupion again.
I have replaced with with apple-green duchesse satin instead, which I love anyway so it's not so much of a problem...Also have some gorgeous gorgeous embroidered cream lace, lots of velvet ribbon and my body weight in steel boning. This bodice ain't going anywhere.
