General
Time Taken : 5 hours

Description
This costume was bought for me by my boyfriend from another user on cos.com, but it had a few things to be added to it. There weren't any gloves, wings or boots, and the sashes at the back and the necktie had to be attached permanently. It's a lovely costume and has always received positive feedback whenever I've worn it.

I loved wearing this costume to my first con, and whereas I had enjoyed certain aspects, I knew things were missing or weren't done very well. So I'm in the process of making changes/adding things on.

1) The boots: I got some imitation ugg boots and did my best with some orange PVC and a cut up white t-shirt. And it worked - for five minutes until the hot glue warmed up from my body temp. The PVC made it uncomfortable for me to put the boots on as the base underneath was no longer flexible and took up space where I had folded it over. Not to mention I thought that the orange was too dark and didnt match the rest of the costume.
I quickly decided that I HATED these boots. But where was I to find a brightly orange pair?
In hindsight, I should have painted a different pair orange, and if the incident which came as an accidental blessing hadn't happened, this is probably what I would have done. Instead what happened was a casual stroll through Primark, and coming across the most hideous pair of bright orange 'ugg' boots. I knew they were disgusting, but I had to have my way with them and mod them to the perfection that my first pair could never be. I took some white paint and added in the white detailing, now they are waiting for the spray painted googly eyes.

2) The wings: I did make the wings that year, but I could never figure out how to attach them. I realise now that I will probably have to cut into the costume to have an invisible harness, but it isn't exactly the best turnout for me. I may just bite the bullet and attempt to make a harness with as little visibility as possible and photoshop out anything that offends me from photos later on.

3) Sewing on the scarves. Originally I just pinned these on, but now I just want to stitch them on and be done with it...That's it really :)

4) I've placed in some poppers so the cravat can attach without any help from safety pins - yay!
