Costume Information

Cost : £23

making this for Halloween as it is both haunting and beautiful. Un-like my other costumes I am not making my own pattern for this. I am using a simplicity 2067 pattern and altering it ever so slightly. So you can make it too if you are inspired by my one :D

If you have any questions or are making a black swan too, it would be aswum to let me know

All finished XD (Posted 2nd November 2011)

Finished the whole costume and proudly wore it twice for Halloween, once in Mosh Leicester Friday 28th and then again on actual Halloween in Satan's Manchester. As a result I am a little worse for wear and a small hole in my tutu D: dont really notice it tough lol

tiara (Posted 24th October 2011)

Been keeping my eyes out for a black tiara or a one i could spray black. I have found it near impossible to find one ( unless i have a spare £50!) So i am going to make one out of the left over fabric and the thickest stiffest sew in interfacing I can find.

in the picture is the basic shaping cut out of the interfacing. Originaly I was going to glue it to the head band i used to get the right shaping. but as you can see it can just be hair pined it. I have time I will make the hair comb to match in the same way.

Cutting every thing out (Posted 7th October 2011)

Cutting out all pieces from the simplicity 2067 after altering it slightly to fit my body shape and worked out how much more netting and lace I needed to make the tutu fuller and less irritating on the skin
