|FIRST WORN AT AYACON 2013 AS AN INCOMPLETE COSTUME|
Recently got into the whole Monster High thing, so Cosplays are needed.
there are atleast 3 I wanna do and Operetta is one of them
From Monster High Wikipedia
"Operetta wears a purple and black houndstooth, sleeveless blouse with white buttons down the front. Over the blouse she wears a short white jacket with black spiderweb patterns around the arms and on the back, and short, puffy sleeves ending in keyboard print. The blouse also features a skullette button. She sports jeans that are rolled up to below her knees and feature red lining. Her belt is white with black musical notes print, a spiderweb-style buckle, and three black chains with musical note-shaped charms haning from it. Operetta's shoes are black and white with white shoelaces, a spiderweb pattern, and treble clef shaped black heels. She wears a white bracelet with a keyboard print on her right arm and a black dice ring on her right hand. Her earrings are different from each other; her left earring is the six-dotted side of a black die and her right earring is the five-dotted side of a white die on a string. Around her left eye she sports a black, translucent mask in the shape of a heart-themed musical note."

Bringing her back (Posted 3rd December 2013)
After the fail at Ayacon
Failures on my part (Posted 11th August 2013)
Ok, so no Guitar bag
Both fails on my part
Ok, I just want to show you this (Posted 24th July 2013)
I drew out a template for Operetta's bag last night
Dad's gonna help me make it(which means he's gonna do it all 'cos he gets like that)
Guess Who's in COSPLAY CHESS! (Posted 1st July 2013)
I'm in cosplay chess!
Also, I need to dye Operetta's wig...
Any help from you guys on how to Dye the correct parts of my wig, black?
I don't think I ever showed you guys my Makeup Trial (Posted 25th June 2013)
Here it is :D
Oh, and of course, I'll be blending the scar colour too, not so.... drawn on xD
Also, I don't do makeup very often so... can you tell? lol
Epic Progress! :D (Posted 11th June 2013)
Operetta's Jacket is 90% done!
As Operetta's shoes hurt my feet... (Posted 1st June 2013)
I'm thinking of doing an evening Operetta in her Dot Dead Gorgeous or Picture Day outfit, Maybe even the Dance Class...
Just something for me to take a break from those shoes for the evening.
Getting there :D (Posted 29th May 2013)
I'm feeling really proud of myself.
The Scar stuff should arrive tomorrow or friday, then i can test that out
i'm rather pleased with myself :D
Operetta is really coming together :D
Oh my god I just bought the stuff to do her scars! (Posted 25th May 2013)
UPDATE! (Posted 20th May 2013)
She may well make an Appearance at Ayacon now.
I'm storming ahead :D
I've got her jacket almost done, that just needs painting and spider webbing
Wish me luck! xD
Question for you guys (Posted 10th April 2013)
I'm torn over what to do for Operetta's face scarring
I'm tempted to try some sort of prosthetic to make an indented scar like the doll
I'll go look into Prosthetics/liquid latex some more, and you guys give me ideas, yes? xD
I'm so excited to get Operetta finished
I finally have her! (Posted 5th April 2013)
Today Operetta arrived. I finally have a full, 3D reference for her! I can turn her around, and get all the little details that will make her awesome!
So excited for this cosplay I really am :D
Shoes, they are perfect (Posted 6th October 2012)
These shoes, they are perfect for operetta, a tiny bit small, but my boyfriend thinks they're ex display shoes, so one has been broken in slightly, so they should loosen up with wear.
Piano bracelet (Posted 4th October 2012)
Sadly, the Piano bracelet I got off ebay appears to have gotten lost in the post :(
Operetta Update (Posted 1st October 2012)
I have been watching Many-a-tutorial on how to do False bangs.
Operetta's shoes (or thre basis for them) have been found (albeit a size 5 for a girl with size 5.5/6 feets... :S)
Also, a deal has been made with my Boyfriend, if Operetta doesn't get fully finished for Fushicon (at the latest) He will wear a cosplay of my choice
So whenever Fushicon is, you'll either see Operetta, or in a following convention, Diamond tiara >:D
Now here's a Question (Posted 18th September 2012)
Do I do Operetta's hair with the Victory rolls at the side of her head as well as the quiff-fringe?
Harder than I thought,,, (Posted 8th September 2012)
Operetta is proving harder than I first thought...
Ideas are flying on how to make her shoes, so hopefully they'll come together soon enough, watching a few pairs on ebay, but they're red, so it'll be a fair bit of work
Also, her Purple Houndstooth blouse is a pain to find too, I thought Houndstooth was a pretty popular pattern for clothing... apparently, not in purple... or shirts... Gah!
My boyfriend has an idea on how to do her heart-music note eyepatch, so that should be ok...
Her jeans will be the easiest part. Primark can't let me down here!
I'm getting closer with her jacket too, so that's good, and Her accessories will be constructed with the help of my boyfriend :D
If i have time, I'm going to attempt that coffin-guitar bag she has too.
DETERMINED! (Posted 6th September 2012)
I am determined to get Operetta done, I really am.
I'm aiming to get myself an Operetta doll to use as a reference 'cos I think that'd make life so much easier, having a 3d model to reference from, rather than failing at finding pictures of her from a certain angle. (that, and I want an Operetta Monster High doll anyway >>)
Her shoes are going to be the hardest bit. I know that, which is why I'm getting on that first. Dad said he'll help me construct the Treble Clef heels, but finding a base shoe, that's high enough, with the right shoe pattern is proving a pain.
I'm also having difficulties with her jacket, but other than that, I'm pretty much sorted on how I'm gonna do the rest of her. for the most part anyway.
only other concern i have is getting her wig the right colours, gonna just go with a red wig and hope that I can suss it out when it arrives xD
