|I decided to make a costume only a few days before the ball. To my surprise I actually got it finished in time, although I was sewing right up until I left for the night! I really enjoyed making this, I guess it was a bit simple, but it was fun to work with binding, painting, and fimo for once. The biggest mistake I made was using a closed zipper instead of an open one, so I found it impossible to remove the jacket easily on the hot ballroom.|
It was also the first time I had ever dyed a wig. I think I got the formula wrong as it was the stiffest thing known to man.
