|Time Taken :||better part of 2 months (exact time unknown)|
|For some reason, I just sympathise with Gwendolyn. Her complete lack of confidence coupled with the overwhelming desire to please her father - this girl just can't win.|
My favourite part is definitely the wings - which were also the best deal. Rather than spend a fortune on feathers, I played it smart and bought feather boa's. They should have cost me close to £30, instead they were less than £10 altogether. I also had enough to complete the headdress, which looks incredible, along with the greatest wig I've ever owned by a mile.
The dress however, was my biggest hell. Every single aspect of it went out of its way to be JUST that little bit harder than it needed to be. A side zip for a dress that opened in the front, lace that wouldn't stay put, stitching the black fabric to the bed accidentally, not staying in place...the list goes on.
The boots on the other hand were fairly odd. They looked great, though making them ripped my fingers to shreds, and the stitching was undone on the elastic by the end of the con, but I was quite proud of them (even if I had to use duck tape to keep them on my legs...THAT was fun to get off).
Arm sleeves weren't brilliant, but because of time they weren't actually complete until Saturday morning anyway.

Unfortunately, this costume has just about had it. Jesus couldn't ressurrect it in time for Auchinawa, so it may be time to retire it.
