Review (Posted 13th November 2012)
I wasn't totally happy with this costume, I still had issues with the top (it took me SO long to decide on some fabric), the braids weren't thick enough and the colour... I don't know, it just didn't seem right. The skirt colours were a bit off as well, though I was quite happy with how the back of the skirt turned out (though I don't think I have any pics of it).
The belts I liked, though I wish the lower one had been a little more accurate.
The wig... I loved the colour and I tried so hard to get a wave into it but it just wasn't cooperating, in the end I was relatively happy with it but I just wish it had styled better.
So overall... Definite improvements that could have been made, DEFINITELY, but I did have a lot of fun in it, so I guess there's that XD
coming together! (Posted 5th October 2012)
Okay, so far I have the fabric for the top and the skirt, one of the belts and the other already ordered, the wig on order, one of the brooches on order and the other on my watch list, the wool I'm going to use for her straps on my watch list, the ribbon for her hand wraps, the leggings, and if all goes well in this auction I'll have the boots in a couple of hours.
Ok, it's coming together, almost there, I just need to... you know... make it...
I need to style the wig when it gets here, I still need to work out a way to stain the skirt and make it look more worn, but I have a few plans, and I'll need to braid up the wool for the straps, but otherwise it's mostly just sewing it all together.
