Capey goodness (Posted 22nd May 2013)

Almost done. I was going to double hem it buuuut i just dont have enough and it frays out. So plan 2, buy ribbon!

Dress (Posted 21st May 2013)

Dress is 95% complete, just got to hem the bottom and then to my cape.

Also ignore the grumpy face with no makeup. 3 days of running on less than 7 hours sleep does that to me :D

To do list (Posted 21st May 2013)

I have hemming, attatching sleeves and a cape to go with less than 24 hours till I pack to leave. I CAN DO IT! *fist pumps*

Fabric (Posted 21st May 2013)

Okay so I made the dress out the fabric I found, it was FAR to see through so I had to then go to the closest place that sold fabric which for me is Dunelm Mill, yay? And got a poly cotton lining. so I finally cut out all the pattern sections again and then made sleeve patterns as I noticed I forgot them woooooo I has the skills!
I have not pinned the front panels togeither and I'll sew them togeither first tomorrow and then I'll move onto the back panel and then I have a cape to go... I still havnt picked a cape pattern buu! D:{

It's not 1:30am and I've been up since 8am so I think I should give up.

Dress (Posted 19th May 2013)

Okay so I started the mock garment, as usual I'm running late but this time it was a few situations out of my control.

I went and unraveled my fabric for Galadriel and for some bizzare reason I only have 3 meters of the fabric. Like wtf? I'm so sure I went in and asked of 6 meters like I did my spider tulle D: so the fabric I was going to use has been tossed to the side and I went raiding my fabric drawer. I have enough white fabric of a different type alas it's not smooth or silky but it'll have to do.

That made me so angry haha!!

Attempt2 (Posted 12th May 2013)

Didnt like the dome so i made one outta clay.

Brooch template. (Posted 11th May 2013)

9 images later I drew this. It's not 100% accurate because her cape hides some of it lol! Also I know the brooch is ment to be a disk but i got irritated looking for mother of pearl disks lol!

Sideshot (Posted 7th May 2013)

13 hours n a whole large can of tresemme freeze hold hairspray later. I honestly think i've inhailed too much of tge stuff.

Wig rage (Posted 8th April 2013)

So I got help sectioning the wig n tried to crimp it and despite working on a tester it hasnt gone well. New wig needed so time to troll the internet...

Fabric bought! (Posted 6th January 2013)

I finally picked fabric! I am doing 2 versions of The Hobbits Gladdy. One that I am dubbing her battle wears n the other her purdy sparkly wears :3 this fabrics for battley Gladdy.

Elfie ears! :D (Posted 28th November 2012)

My elf ear tips arrived today!! :D so much better than joke shop ones.

Wiiiig (Posted 27th November 2012)

I parted it, it's already tangeling so much n I've only had it on for 10 mins max. This is gonna be a pain! Lol! Also I look like death forgive me T_T

Fabric (Posted 21st November 2012)

Trying to source cheap white Gabardine/ Polyester Twill. OMG How expensive is it!? I found a cheap one until they charged a stupid amount for postage D: Ebay has even failed me. Looks like the base dress alone is going to cost me £40 Oh happy days!? Lol!

Ear tips (Posted 18th November 2012)

These are the tips I ordered. They where cheaper than buying it from the larp group in the UK.

Props (Posted 17th November 2012)

I have desided I am going to make Lothlorien's banner :D Just because I can and it's so purdyful!
