I think my fiance would look really good as the Prince in his blue suit, so despite this being one of the most challenging dresses I've seen I'm going to have a crack at it. Fingers crossed!!

You looked so lovely and picked a nice fabric rather than bright-in-ya-face yellow xD David really looked good as Adam too :D

I actually remember seeing you on the Saturday, 'cause I was thinking how awesome it was that you actually had the Prince with you! Never seen anyone cosplay him before. Brilliant! : D

Petticoat Version 2 (Posted 21st October 2011)

This is my re-enforced petti and I'm so pleased with it.

I went out and bought two lengths of plastic pipe, and bent them into hoops with the help of David. (They were hard to bend D:) And I've also connected them with lengths of fabric and made a waistband to attatch the fabric strips to, holding it all together. I'm wearing my original petti over the top to give it that softness.
