|I've never put this up before but I'm putting it up now. I'm going to be commissioning Tab (KhaosKreator) to make me this dress. I've never spent this much money (or will be) on one item before in my life I dont think!!! But it will be worth it!|
I'm in the talking stages with him at the moment, to pick fabrics and stuff. I'm going to choosing a plain fabric for the main dress but brocade for the 'seafoam' centre panel in the skirt. I'm also commissioning him for the hair piece. I want this mainly for my princess for hire thing, and will be wearing it to cons too probably! ^___^
It's not going to be 100% accurate as I don't want to risk any breech of copyright laws with Disney, so it's going to be mine and Tab's version of it whilst still being recognisable as her park dress. ^_______^ (www.part-of-your-world.webs.com)
I cant wait to start getting the money together and start paying him for this dress as its my new dream costume!!
UPDATE: Hoping to get the money together to have it ready for July and LFCC.. but thats only a guess deadline. Its to help me get the money together quickly
UPDATE: Definitely wanna attempt to do this for LFCC in July as I seem to be getting the money together to pay Tab rather rapidly which is surprising me a lot! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!
UPDATE: MOVING TO IN PROGRESS AS I'VE SENT TAB THE FIRST HALF OF THE PAYMENT! YAAAAAY!
UPDATE: IT'S COMPLETE!! Receiving it tomorrow (4th July 2012) by courier! CANT WAIT! ITS SO GORGEOUS!

wig decisions again (Posted 29th March 2012)
Sooooo after giving it some real thought I'm definitely going to buy another wig for July's wear as Ariel to go with the dress, as I feel that my current wig will look tatty compared to Tab's work on the dress haha, I'm stuck between two decisions at the moment.... (see picture) wig 1 i love for its richness in color but it looks really damn thin- it is heat resistant too so I'd straighten out some of the curls a bit as I think it's a bit too curly but its general style matches the park's wig whilst still being film accurate.
wig 2 is basically the same wig that I currently have, it's thicker looking than wig 1 and really film accurate in color but a tad shorter than wig 1.... but i know it lasts a year at least so should I stick with what i know and go with this wig? Hmmm.....
Either wig I buy I might have to buy 2 to thicken it up in at least the bangs
Payment DONE! (Posted 29th March 2012)
So just this minute I have sent off the last remaining £190 that I managed to get saved up and it's now been sent to Tab (KhaosKostumes) through paypal. Super duper happy I dont have to worry about that big outlay now!!
Just gotta do my measurements properly in the next couple of days and email them to him and then I'm pretty much sorted for the important things on my end for the time being! I'll probably get the character shoes around June time and possibly the new wig around May time, which again I'll either buy 2 of and re make the bangs from scratch or bu just one and add it to my current wig, but the way its going a bit ick on the ends now I might just buy 2 new wigs and start from scratch from again with the bangs lol.
So looking forward to owning this dress in July!
wig (Posted 23rd February 2012)
I know this sounds utterly crazy but I'm thinking in June buying yet another new wig for Ariel. I love my wig buts its beginning to get a bit clumpy/frizzy at the bottom and I think after a couple more comb throughs I'm not sure it will last for much longer....
SO i decided IF i get a new wig, I'll get a longer one and sew it into my current one as I'm reasonably happy with the bangs on it and just make my current wig longer... unless of course i can do the bangs really well on the new wig, but my current bangs have soooo many extra wefts put in to give that good amount of volume so... we'll see... I'll definitely be getting a new one for September's princess party thats for sure...
