Costume Information

YES, the bubble dress! I adore Wicked, and Glinda. This is my chance to make a cosplay that will be really impressive, and I want to make it as close to the original as possible.

Not wearing it for Amecon '12, but for May London MCM Expo instead!

Sooooo Gorgeous!
Very nice progress. :)
Is it taking forever to sew the sequins on?

It is XD But it's worth it! I thought it'd be harder to make, but it's really just more time-consuming than anything else. :)

I only managed to sew so many sequins before I ran out of time. They werent very neat either..the thread was noticable even though it was the right colour. Next time I sew sequins I will use invisible thread... But twice now I ended up glueing them on. I know its cheaty cheating ^^ but I had to do it for times sake.
Anyway I really look forward to seeing you in will be spectacular. And if you go in the masquerade the stage lights bouncing off will truly make you sparkle. :)

Thanks! I'm actually entering the masquerade with my sister who's doing Elphaba's Act 2 dress! We're both trying our hardest to make them as close to the stage versions as possible. :) A lot of people have said I'm crazy for making this all by hand, but I think it'll definitely be worth it in the end~

Yes definitely it is worth it. Making a costume with love always is. ^_^
Hopefully I shall see you in the masquerade queue..there's always plenty of time waiting back stage to look out for costumes.

Thank you so so much for your comments! I definitely feel like all the hard work was worth it in the end. Never been so proud of myself before, cosplay-making-wise!

Iggie, like Steph said, we'll be wearing them again at some point, plus we're making Elphaba's and Glinda's Shiz outfits, AND their Defying Gravity outfits. So you'll get to see them ;)
