Costume Information

General
Cost : £40
Awards : 2nd place EMS Masquerade, 3rd place Titan Con Masquerade
Time Taken : 2 weeks

Description
The costume consists of:

4 metres of turquoise and gold fabric (possibly curtain fabric but hey, whatever works!)

1 metre of turquoise chiffon

Several pieces of craft foam

PVA glue

Gold acrylic paint

Chain and beads

Gold shoes

White blonde wig

Purple contacts

It took around 2 weeks to make, mainly because of the belt and shoulder pieces! I cut all of the pieces out of craft foam using a craft knife before giving it several layers of PVA glue to strengthen it. I then painted it gold before realising the shade clashed with my fabric so I repainted it in a lighter shade.

The dress didn't take very long to make as it was rather simple. the only problem was as it is rather low cut, finding a suitable bra to wear under it was a challenge! I managed to find a u-plunge bra that works perfectly.

I attempted crimping the wig by plaiting and hair spraying but it dropped out by the time of the masquerade. It still gave a good effect however.

The purple contacts really set the costume off and really complete the look.
