I thought, I already have a black tutu, so why not!?

So I already have a black tutu, and tights and ballet flats (not going to use pointe shoes). I need to alter the bodice I made for Kraehe, but that shouldn't be too hard. It's the multitude of fabrics and feathers all over the bodice that'll be hard.

Black Swan Update One (Posted 30th March 2011)

Well, it's almost done. I've got the majority of the bodice done. What needs to be done now is: finish embelishing the bodice;
make and bedazzle the topplate;
add the ripped netting and feathers to the sides of the bodice;
add the fastenings;
Make the basque and attach it.

Okay...put like that, I've still got a tonne to do.

The Beginning (Posted 5th March 2011)

So I bought my make up today. Just simple black and white facepaint. The actual makeup used is all M.A.C. which is a) not avaliable in my city and b) bloody expensive if you find it. I do have M.A.C. lipstick, but its not quite the right shade. It's pretty damn close though. I added silver eyeshadow over the white, because the streaks are acutally silver. No picture though, brother had the camera and he was somewhere between Peterborough and Edinburgh.

I also found some black velvet in my costume box (score!) so I'm going to start altering my Kraehe bodice tomorrow. I can't believe I'm ripping apart a costume that took me so long! Even if it is to make another one ><
