Description
Since I dont think I'll have the money for Fairy Jane now (or time/skills to join the masquerade) I thought I'd be Vanessa since Phee is being Ariel. She told me she'd pay/make me a dress (I'd help with as much of the dress I can obvs .o.) and then I owe her later XD It's been a while since me and her have done joined cosplays ;3; so this should be gooood. Plus I've wanted to do Vanessa for aaaages.

Luckily Vanessa is a brunette with blue eyes so at least facially I'll suit her. I hope I can make the necklace as well :D

One day I'd love to do Vanessa's wedding dress too coz I think it's prettier than Ariel's XD

In progress since this is for an upcoming event

**20.05.11**
- In complete because Phee has finished the dress and I've finished the necklace =D!

Journal

All Together! (Posted 20th May 2011)

My Belle wig arrived this morning and looking at it i thought it was sooo much better and more accurate for Vanessa. I'll still style it for Belle but after expo xD I love the dress! It's so comfortable and made so well by Phee! :D *much love to her* and I do love how the necklace turned out too :D I'm so happy!!!!

Dress Completed! (Posted 20th May 2011)

Phee has completed the dress! And here she is modelling it for me :B I really love it and think she's done an amazing job! I plan on collecting it tonight and then I'll try it on! I can not wait!

Wig, Make up, Necklace (Posted 15th May 2011)

Okay I reeeeeeeeeeeally don't like the wig >.< I need to flatten it somehow coz it's so wavy and the ones around the face I really don't suit. I've tried wetting it with a brush, and then placing heavy books on it to flatten it a bit. Hairspraying it whilst flat all sorts. It just wont go. So I'm getting kinda annoyed 8I

Dress WIP (Posted 11th May 2011)

Being made by the amazing Phee! I'm so happy with it atm =D I had no idea how I was gonna do it and she's thought of everything and then done it! She's added darts, pins, all sorts! I can't wait to see it finished and wear it!! EEEP!

Skirt Material (Posted 25th April 2011)

The original material for the skirt I thought was too light so when I saw this in the fabric shop I thought it was perfect :D Hopefully in the next couple of days my navy top will arrive for us to edit and then on Saturday (if it does arrive) we'll be making the dress 8D/ Then all I need to do is edit the necklace and voila!

Update (Posted 21st April 2011)

So here's what I got...the cloak should be arriving in a couple of weeks. The necklace in about 10 days. Once the necklace arrives I'll be editing it. Phee has finished making her Ariel dress and the material for the top was pretty much the same colour as Vanessa's skirt. So she's started making it for me and is waiting for me to be available so she can pin it on me and all that palava. We've then decided we'll get a navy top to edit instead of making one from scratch. So hopefully this'll be done soon :D Thank god for easy cosplays - after kitacon I need that D:

Base Necklace (Posted 5th March 2011)

I found this and although it might not be the perfect shape I thought it will do. I'll remove it from the string and beads its on and spray paint it gold. Then I'll get some black string and attach it on
(I've decided to put a lot of journals so the before and after pictures are always there =])
