Anya (Learn to do it) - Anastasia




Big yellow sack. One of my favourite films, and songs, so the costume just had to be made.
First made in 2009, since completely remade except for the belt and necklace.
The construction was fairly easily, even if finding resources took a lot of time.
The biggist problem with this was the hair. I had long hair at the time so it wasn't going to be very accurate, but it did not go as well on the day as it had in trials.
The second attempt includes a wig, with extra wefts sewn in for those ridiculous bangs, and I finally got around to making the hat.
The scarf was handmade by my lovely sister.
Now the sack has the right gigantic sleeves, and is more flexible. I've grown quite a lot from the 'skinny little brat' I was when I first wore the costume, so it had to be made much bigger for that cast-off look.
