Great choice! The Monster High designs are all so cool, they're hard to choose between.

Thanks. And yeah, totally! I love Clawdeen, but I don't think I could do her justice (and there's the skin tone issue!), and my girlfriend has already reserved Ghoulia. Would also love to do Meowlody and Purrsephone, but I don't have a twin XD

Damn boots! (Posted 5th May 2014)

Costume is complete except for the boots. Which refuse to play ball. I'm gonna wear the costume with regular heels anyway, and work on the boots at a later date. The ideas were sound. The materials and my skills were not.

Skirt (Posted 21st February 2014)

The layered skirt is finished with a slight modification. The underskirt is now opaque satin rather than tulle as even four layers of tulle in two colours would leave my knickers on show! Not very Spectra-like! :o

Ruffles (Posted 19th February 2014)

Ruffled satin added to front of top! One hurdle down!

Bits and Bobs (Posted 31st January 2014)

I think I've got everything for the dress (I'm cheating a little by making a skirt, and modifying a cami-top). After that it will be looking at the boots (I have a plan) and the accessories.
