|This is, perhaps, one the best costumes I've ever made; I paid special attention to the details. And this is the costume I wore the most. I had to remake the transparent T-shirt since the first fabric I chose was too thick. Also, I had to remake the big sparky-black part, because I found the perfect fabric in the last minute. |
The character wears a triangle-studs necklace, and I couldn't find any triangle stud to buy, so I had to make them myself. I made small molds in plaster and I made them in poliester resin.
I wanted to have the Barbie doll as well, but that specific 50's Barbie doll is a collectionist object, and I can't afford lots of money to just brake an expensive doll in half. So, I decided to find a straight-arms Barbie, and repaint her face to make her look more like a 50's one.
I also made the tiger coat. After one year, I finally could make the lining. Before that, I've been wearing an incompleted coat!
Some time after, I got a bright umbrella replica from eBay, and I could use it in other photoshoots.
