17th March 2014: carefully adding worbla started to carefully add the worbla to the coat using a all purpose glue. and carefully heating the worbla and moulding it to shape

17th March 2014: gloves / gauntlet made the gloves from a stretchy material, and then made the gauntlets seperately, the gauntlets are made from worbla

3rd March 2014: shield and staff complete! finished :) so please with them :)

3rd March 2014: worbla puzzel! all the pieces for the coat laid out to be varnished

22nd February 2014: worbla day! today i cut out lots of worbla and spray painted it gold for the coat and the shield

16th February 2014: coat made a start on the coat yesterday, looks a mess on this picture as its just draped over the mannequin. I have sewn it together and put some iron on interfacing in the upperparts to make it a little stiffer, next i need to add the even stiffer interfacing to the side panel and the shoulders, i also need to sen on the sleeve and then start adding the gold details

12th February 2014: shield made the shield using a bit of hardboard which i bent slightly and cut to shape, also drilled in the holes and added a base coact of emolsion paint to start me off :) gonna add worbla for the gold detsils

12th February 2014: staff progress made this with a stair rail pole thingy, carved the shape out and added car putty to bulk parts out, next its time to add details and paint

12th February 2014: pink dress progress more progess on the pink dress! the dress is now sewn to the lining with the petal frame inside, just need to pop the collar and zip on and tidy up the sleeves :)

20th January 2014: pink dress progress after sewing the lining together i started to make the frame for the petals, it consists of 4 petals cut out of extra thick interfacing which is usually used for hats and some very stiff armatrure wire that is pushed into pockets in the petals

19th January 2014: coat pattern making this is the pattern pinned onto me, :)

19th January 2014: coat pattern making damn that coat is complicated! took about 4 hours to get the pattern right but i a hopeful now that this is gonna look good

12th January 2014: boots i bought some nice white heeled boots to start me off, the gold is spray painted worbla carefully moulded around the shape of the heel

15th December 2013: back pieces just to show off the fabric colours

14th December 2013: pink! cutting out the pieces!

12th December 2013: progress - pattern making i decided to make the sewing pattern for the whole costume myself. i used newspaper to pattern out the pink petal dress worn underneath first, the lining will have heavy interfacing + boning to help those petals lift
