Costume Information

General
Cost : £48
Time Taken : 8 days on and off with major procrastination done at the beginning ;3

Description
Ciel and Lizzie's chocolate box matching outfits.
I'll be doing this for the friday? of Ayacon... at least I think that's when! haha!

Lettie (My Ciel) drew up the designs for the outfits based on the original coverart.

We have decided to change the fabric choice due to difficulty in finding it exactly but it still works with the whole aesthetic of the piece.

EDIT:
So the costume is pretty much finished, all that's left is the hat. But I made a little ribbon headdress to use since I didn't have enough time to finish my hat as I was too busy making my Ciels hat xD

The whole dress is made from the same brown fabric. The gold diamonds on the skirt, bodice and sleeves of the jacket were sewn on by me.

omg @_@
So much left to do and so little time!
The Chemise is finished (YAY) and so is the bodice! It turned out better than expected :D
I've just finished sewing all the lines onto the skirt fabric. Used over 600m of thread @______________@

Also, my contact lenses arrived :D Good right??
They are I.Fairy! Nova series if anyone was wondering~ C:

Fabric + planning! (Posted 4th August 2011)

So yesterday I went out with my darling Ciel to get the fabric! We could find exactly what we wanted but we found compromises. Although to save money I am now sewing hundreds of gold lines onto the plain brown fabric to get the pattern on the dress @___________________@ I'll try and count how many I do to share my torture ;D
I worked out that there will be 5 main steps to this outfit!
1) The Chemise. A white cotton bodice with lace frill attached to a hooped skirt.
2)Main dress piece. I will have a corseted under-bust attached to the skirt. This will all be in the brown fabric that I need to sew the lines onto to make the diamond shapes! The bodice comes down to a V from which the brown fabric will separate to show a white lace frill~ There will also be a pink frill along the bottom of the main skirt. But I might change that if I feel like it :'3
3) The Bustle. Never done one before so this is going to be fun! :D This will be made out of gorgeous tartan wool we found! Depending on how poofed it comes out with just the gathers etc. I might have to make pads make it bigger xD
4) The Jacket. This has to be out of the Brown cotton again but I don't have to do the lines this time! (YAY!) Except for the sleeves. (BOO!) It will be based on a riding Jacket and has a big bow on the back! I have to make it last so that I can shape the tail-y type bit at the back (can't remember what it's called) will sit nicely over the bustle with out crushing it~.
5) Accessories. This includes the hat, gloves, bows and ribbons, as well as the shoes! He shoes have an adorable curly heel which I am going to try and make :3

Phew! Writing all that just took so much out of me, I'll be a goner by the time I've finished! Wish me luck :3

P.S. I want to post a pic, but I currently have no means of getting the pictures off my phone and onto the PC! Such a pain D;
