Costume Information

General
Cost : Over £100
Time Taken : 1 Month

Description
The jacket was made over just one month and never again do I want to see velveteen or sparkley net. Pattern was a slight modified McCall's one which surprisingly worked wonders and I couldn't have asked for anything better to work with for this costume. I feel over the past year my jacket making skills have improved and I can now sort of make them without a ton of stress and hassle!

The bustle was made in three sittings and consists of 11 metres of net. I must have snapped about six needles sowing the damn thing!
Appliqué was unfortunately not done by myself but rather bought off ebay and in the end I'm glad I went for this method.

The hair piece was made by attacking 6 different hair clips and gluing feathers and beads to them. I also painstakingly glued small blue diamanté's on one by one on the hair grips for the curly extension but despite my hard work you couldn't even see them!

Everything else was bought from ebay including the wig which was a present from my lovely boyfriend.

Aww thank you so much! I'm hoping to get a few more shades of purple so it's got a bit more depth to it.
And yes I was haha! Everyone was messing with my screw :3 Who were you??
