|Been planning this for a while now, and I'm going to sing Diamond Crevasse at Kita's Got Talent!! 8D|
I will also be debuting this at Minamicon, but there wasn't an event page for it yet! XD
I'm really looking forward to this :)
Secret dress! (Posted 14th April 2014)
So my secret for this KGT was my secret dress! I always planned to have a dress change during the song, because it's Sheryl lmao! but instead of choosing another outfit, I decided to create my own design based on Diamond Crevasse and the song themes. So I used light blue acetate satin to keep with the theme, and shoved a shitton of organza onto it, and then glued LEDs to the organza train and EL wire onto the bodice! It was quite effective :D
Dress finisheeed! (Posted 11th February 2014)
Here are the progress shots of the dress. What I basically did with the dress, was to wrap the fabric around me (keeping the 60" width constant) and see how wide it had to be around my bust, allowing a bit of overlap to put velcro on. Then, I cut slits up the material to insert triangular panels from the leftover taffeta, to flare it out at the bottom!
Waist sash and detailing (Posted 11th February 2014)
So, in progress when making the dress, I found adding the chiffon on top of the taffeta made it look like...well, like a tent. Which is how it's supposed to be, except it wasn't very flattering on me at all...
So my friend CharlieBear suggested I make a sash for round my waist, or underbust! So I got some of the spare satin from the flowers, and a bunch of beads and sequins from past projects and got to work! My mum surprised me with a new embroidery hoop (she was supposed to have given it to me for xmas but forgot) and it made detailing so much easier! Here is the sash all finished :)
Flower crown finished! (Posted 22nd January 2014)
I made my first flower crown! Also did my first satin burning XD I burnt my fingers a lot...and might have set fire to the satin a few times.*cough cough*
All that's left is the dress!
Gloves finished, wig arrived! (Posted 13th January 2014)
I bought satin purple gloves off eBay, and some small flowers made from fabric which I then sewed onto the glove as a trim :) I was lucky as I worried I wouldn't have enough!
My wig arrived! It's gorgeously long, and is pale blue with some darker blue streaks in it, just what I wanted! Once I make the flower crown sometime this week I can do a makeup test as well :)
Circle lenses! (Posted 8th January 2014)
My circle lenses arrived yesterday! Here are the ones I'm wearing for Sheryl - they don't show up as well as I'd like but it's better than nothing :)
Progressssss (Posted 4th January 2014)
So far, I've purchased some materials for Sheryl's dress - I've chosen royal blue taffeta as the lining and some royal blue cationic chiffon to go on top, I hope it will look really pretty!
I've also purchased some pink acetate satin to make into flowers for the flower crown - I plan to use the candle burning method to seal the edges and then sew big pearls into them before weaking them into a crown shape. The wig is on it's way, I bought it from ayanamisatouru's new website :)
I also got some purple satin gloves and some pink flower shapes to sew on! Oh and also some blue contacts :D
Earrings (Posted 23rd August 2013)
Thought I might as well show the earrings! Not much sparkle atm as lighting wasn't best when taking the photo haha XD
Kind of in progress but not (Posted 23rd August 2013)
I'm not planning to start this until after October at the earliest, but will probably wait until start of 2014. This is kind of in progress as I bought Sheryl's earrings from Ebay a few weeks ago XD they're pretty and I will try them on soooon!
