It begins (Posted 7th September 2011)
I've started work on the costume finally! I wasn't sure if I would be able to find the bits I needed, but fortunately through a lot of ebay searching I've found the under bust corset I need. I'll have to add a bit of ribbon detailing to it, but that's a lot easier than trying to make the whole thing. I think I've found some boots as well, I just have to win them on the bid. Fingers crossed!
So far I need to find a suitable skirt/fabric for skirt and a lace top for under the corset. I've seen one that would be good but I don't think they have my size. Sods law.
I'm going to have a look around Brighton next week though and see what I can find. If anything I can probably pick up some belts there as well as something to go round my upper arm. As for the choker I'll have to think about it, I don't like having something that close & tight to my throat.
Hopefully there's going to be a little We Will Rock You group on Saturday. A friend of mine is coming as Khashoggi, and another is being a secret police/yuppie.
