Costume Information

Awards : Best perfomance at Birmingham expo, November 2013

We made the routine up in about an hour before the actual masquerade, after not sleeping for an entire night ;-; The problem was that I fell ill for the majority of the time in between London expo and Birmingham expo, so the time I was meant to spend on this costume and the performance was actually spent coughing my lungs out. Despite this, and the fact that I cringe every time I see the performance, it probably wasn't bad for the time we spent on it, and we were pretty ecstatic to receive an award for it! :D

On the construction, I ran out of worbla for the staff, which it why it thins out on the top, but i'll fix that as soon as I have some more when we do a shoot for this. I also plan to add more poof to the petticoat, and serge the edges of the skirt rather than bias bind (the serger that I brought didn't show up until after expo ;a; )There are a few more things to fix, but hopefully they shall be worked out in time for a winter shoot if snow happens....

If only I was going to Memorabilia. I'd have brought Hayate with me.
Looking forward to seeing this!
