|She's my favourite Disney princess. I'm not sure why since she doesn't do much of anything in the film but there's something I just really like about her. It doesn't help that Sleeping Beauty is my favourite Disney film! I still have a tendency to burst out singing I KNOW YOU I WALKED WITH YOU ONCE UPON A DREAM.|
As I'm going to Disneyland again next year I am inspired to do this! :D
I'm not sure what colour dress I'd do; pink is my favourite but the original film seemed to go with blue at the end.
Yeah yeah I know, enough with the blonde haired characters already.
Everyone's reactions to this were amazing and I can't thank you guys enough.
A big, big thank you to TheMagicalLucy for helping me with the wig (by ttly glueing it to my head oh yeah) and SachikoYumi for helping me with the crown and necklace. I honestly couldn't have pulled this off so well without you guys and you deserve every bit of recognition you both get! <3
Meh (Posted 27th January 2012)
I'm not too confident about this still because I look huge. The top half needs taken in a little bit and it's not zipped up at the back because I couldn't quite reach with one hand. I'll definitely need some help. I'm undecided if want to go for the slim look of the movie or invest in a smaller hoop skirt or something. Any advice?
Before Styling (Posted 24th December 2011)
This wig came through the post earlier today, talk about good timing. Just in time fo Christmas haha. It's a lovely wig and I love the colour, even though the wig wasn't what I was really expecting, you know? I have no idea where on earth I would start with this so I'm going to look up how to do stuff before I start cutting. I'm still not very good at styling wigs so I imagine that this will be a little difficult for me. Wish me luck!
Shoes (Posted 19th December 2011)
Oh yeah these little bad boys came today. They're slightly too big but it's nothing that can't easily be fixed. All I need to do with these is break into them as they currently hurt a lot.
Dress (Posted 17th December 2011)
I've spoken to the commissioner and we've opted to go for cotton which whilst I'm not totally happy with, it looks a lot better than the shiny fabric they were intending to use. I've had a look at the swatches too and picekd which colours I think will look best on the dress. Even if I've only had a limited control on what this will turn out like I'm satisfied.
Wig and Shoes (Posted 13th December 2011)
Bought the wig and a nice pair of shoes for this today! As I'm going for the blue dress the shoes are blue (of course) and TheMagicalLucy helped me pick a lovely wig. It needs some styling but I'm certain I can work with it!
