Costume Information

I REALLY love how this costume turned out even if it's not perfect it's one of my favourites :D

The wig is platinum blonde because I didn't think the blue would show up on anything darker than that. The blue bits "drawn" on with a letraset marker. Took ages but I like how it turned out! The flower, belt, armbands and collar are made of painted foam and all the gems are fimo clay (coated in clear nail polish...very professional...:P).

I'm going to try and get some more photos of this costume soon.
