|When I saw the Royal Wedding two-parter and Queen Changeling I just knew I *had* to dress up as her. She's AMAZING!|
Its frustrating that the espisode comes too late for me to work on for May Expo. I just hope the pony fans are still around for October!

Wings mk 2 (Posted 13th August 2012)
So after a complete balls-up where the cellophant wouldn't fuse, the spray glue was useless, and the harness failed completely, I', on version two of the wings.
These are green cellophane and wire sandwiched between sticky-back film. And this time I've made them as a single piece, and attached them to a small harness (based on a plastic tub lid!). Detailling is going well, and the next step is to attach the shoulder straps with better placing, and cover the messy bits of the harness with black material.
Ch-ch-changes (Posted 9th May 2012)
Looks like seperates are a better idea than a jumpsuit. They seem out of fashion at the moment. Still trying to decide between loose wide-legged trousers and flares. I like the lines of a snug thigh and flares, but loose wide trousers would resemble a long skirt when at rest an is a bit more regal.
I've also made newspaper templates for my wings. Progress is moving slowly, but it's constant :)
Belts, corsets and sashes (Posted 26th April 2012)
The design of Chrysalis's carapace thingy is the part I'm having difficulty with right now. I had originally though of some sort of bodice or underbust corset. Apart from being beyond my sewing skills, I'm not sure its the best idea after all.
Looking at the screenshots again, it looks like it's held on by a sash. So maybe a wide sash belt with a bow/knot either on the hip or the back?
Or what about a hip scarf, like belly dancers wear?
Or a obi-style wide belt?
Time to do more drawing!
