Well.. this costume is coming together a lot quicker than I imagined!! And I am SO EXCITED!! A very good friend of mine over in Argentina (SandySuicide) has offered to make this costume for me as a present, which.. I still can't quite believe!! She is so amazing, and so talented and I just.. Can't wait to have one of her costumes in my collection.
We have decided to go with Missstitched as it is one of my favourite costumes out of all of them, and looks like a lot of fun to make, and will probably suit me the most. I have taken care of the wig, tights and boots, and I will be making the Omega necklace, and Doll head for the center of the bow!
So.. It looks like this will be done for October Expo!! Which is sadly going to be my last expo for a little while (for lots of reasons) So I am really happy that I can wear this costume, it will really make it special for me :)

FUUUUUUUU--- (Posted 17th October 2011)
This hobby horse is going out the window I swear!! I have spend all afternoon trying to paint this thing, and I still HATE it!! I never ever ever want to paint wood grain ever ever again!!! This has got so many coats of paint on it, it just kept going wrong, and now the paint is starting to crack!! FML!
Gloves (Posted 13th October 2011)
I Started the gloves today, They don't look too bad, I used white parts of my original Midna suit, it felt so good to cut it up!! Lol. I painted on the Green stripes, using acrylic paint. Last night I actually did the stripes with a marker pen and it went perfectly! But.. the pen ran out on the last stripe! OTL
Anyway, I like the colour I got mixing the paints, and.. is.. messy to say the least, but my excuse is.. that the stripes aren't supposed to be straight anyway!! Lol.
It also dawned on me today, Every single piece of fabric that has a pattern on it (apart from the tights) for this costume, has been hand painted, even down to the pockets! Sandysuicide is just amazing! And I still can't thank her enough, the effort she has put into creating this, and getting the fabrics and the look just right is amazing! and I love her to bits! What a star! <3
More hobby horse progress! (Posted 12th October 2011)
More Progress on the Hobby horse. The rope mane has been made out of model magic, and yeah.. that's totally a big yogurt pot at the bottom of the head, I know.. I'm such a pro!! Lol. Next is paining!
Hobby Horse (Posted 11th October 2011)
Just a quick photo to show the sort of size this is. I've just given it another coat of glue to make it hard, and hopefully tomorrow I can start molding bits onto it and then its just painting! :D
Update!! (Posted 11th October 2011)
Today I got my boots through.. FINALLY and.. they didn't fit u_u well, I say that, they fit my feet, actually they're a bit big, but..my calves are ALSO too big *cries* stupid fat legs *mumble mumble* ANYWAY I have found a way around it as the boots are so nice, and I really can't afford to spend anymore money, I have cut them up!
They were knee high boots, and as my legs are so short, they were actually too long anyway and went above my knee, so they would have had to be changed whether they fit around my legs or not! So I put them on as much as I could, and it turns out it was only the top buckle section that didn't fit, so I marked dots all the way around and making sure to be careful with the zip, cut the whole top off, about 4 inches actually.
So now they only have 3 buckles, and don't go all the way up to my knees, but I must say.. it looks pretty good if I do say so myself, I just have to seal the top and paint over the scuffs(they were used when I bought them, £90 pair of boots for £30!) and that's it!
As for the dress, sandysuicide has finished it, and it was posted special delivery today, so I should have it quite soon!! I hope!! *touches wood* Then all that is left to do is finish the Hobby horse and make the gloves!!
So it's all coming together! Who would have that a couple of months ago this wasn't even planned! :D
Doll Face!! (Posted 24th September 2011)
Perfect doll face for Alice's bow!! I just need to paint it all... creepy XD
oh.. and also.. STILL NO BOOTS!!!! ヽ(≧Д≦)ノ
Update (Posted 22nd September 2011)
Well everything is going well!! Sandysuicide is working her ass off to get this done for me, and she is amazing!! I'm so happy with how it is looking!
I received the wig yesterday and it is PERFECT! Although I am a little confused... I ordered the wig, and the boots.. on the same day. How has the wig from China.. got here, and the boots.. from Newcastle have not!! What gives!!
Anyway, I will be ordering the hobby horse today so I can start customizing it, and I should have the necklace complete by this evening too.
Then all it is, is making the dolls head, doing the horse, and waiting! IM SO EXCITED ITS UNREAL!!!
More shirt progress (Posted 16th September 2011)
sandysuicide modelling the progress so far!!
Shirt Progress (Posted 14th September 2011)
I dont understand how someone can be patient enough to sew on ribbon... after ribbon.. after ribbon.. Girl you are amazing, and it is looking fantastic!!
I'm so excited to have this costume!!
I'm the luckiest girl in the woooorld! <3
Fabrics (Posted 14th September 2011)
Here are some of the fabrics that sandysuicide has bought for this costume! <3
Wig (Posted 11th September 2011)
This is the wig I have bought. It is the perfect shape, and from the looks of the photo, it isn't completely black, which is good, as Alice's hair in Wonderland had a red/brown tinge to it.
Omega Necklace (Posted 10th September 2011)
Started making the Omega necklace today, It is such a simple shape I have just moulded it out of model magic, which I will then paint, and attach to a pink ribbon.
I have made it slightly oversized, I thought it would look better this way with the style of the dress, to match the oversized buttons, big collar, and oversized bow.
