Costume Information

Description
I love Game of Thrones! I didn't think much of Sansa when I first watched it but she grew on me as the series progressed, particularly in the last episodes.

I love her dresses' styles and the shape of them. Her hair is amazing, I don't know how I'll do it though!

Journal

Dress (Posted 18th July 2013)

Everything in the costume is done except the embroidery. Instead of rushing it I shall complete it for London MCM Expo October 2013. I'm pretty happy with how it's turned out, though it's a little too short at the back/sides....ah well! The side panels were hand sewn on so there would not be a visible seam (which took some time).

Accessories (Posted 16th July 2013)

The belt is made from craft foam which I painted gold. I guessed with the shapes she had cut out on it as they were hard to make out on the references...but I tried to do them as close as possible. I noticed on one ref she had chain mail holding the rest of the belt together. I decided to buy a similar style trimming as I wouldn't be able to find any in time. The dragonfly necklace is made from fimo and was painted silver. Again, it was hard to make out on the refs as it was so small! :') I like how both have turned out though!

Wig (attempt 2!) (Posted 14th July 2013)

Finally happy with this! I redid the wedge of hair and made it longer. I couldn't get it to go much further forward than this without the wig not sitting comfortably. I also redid the braids as I've seen it pointed out that they are rope braids rather than normal plaits. There are so many bobby pins and so much hairspray holding this in place. It is a little heavy on my head too...

Wig (attempt 1) (Posted 11th July 2013)

This was rather a challenge...but pretty happy with how it's going so far. The wedge of hair (not sure what to call it) isn't far enough forward so I'll try to fix it when I come back to it. The wig I originally wanted to use is out of stock so I'm using this one for Manchester MCM expo. It has a fringe on it and isn't lace front, making the front a lot harder to make look realistic. I'm currently thinking on how to actually make the front look neat and the bobby pins not too obvious. :)

Dress progress (Posted 8th July 2013)

Made the basic dress today and will hopefully start on the lining tomorrow. This is actually very comfortable and lightweight. (excuse the face, I'm rather tired :p)

Make Up Test (Posted 20th April 2013)

This isn't the wig I'll be using, I just thought it would do for this as it a similar length and colour. Her eyes are very pink/red due to crying so I experimented with that. (I may use less red/pink around the face as although more realistic, I look /really/ red) Her lips seem to be darker in some references and paler in others...so I kinda guessed!
