Giselle
Enchanted

Cosplayer: Luminescence

Variant: Pink animation dress

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

17th August 2010: 95% Complete I've just finished covering the headband in the same pink fabric that I used for my dress. All I've got to do now is attach the flowers!

16th August 2010: Not long left to go~ The wig arrived this morning and it's absolutely gorgeous - it's full of different shades of orange, yellow and some red, and it's super curly! All I've got left to do is make the headband of flowers, and then this cosplay will be completed <3 Yay!

9th August 2010: Flowersssss So we found out that the shop my boyfriend was thinking of that would sell fake flowers actually shut down as well as the one I was thinking of (boo! :c), so I had a quick look online and found out that Hobbycraft sells them, although they didn't have much of a selection online. I thought it'd be the same way in the actual store as well...how naive of me!

We got there and there was a whole corner of the ground floor dedicated solely to fake flowers and floral craft. |: I ended up spending a good fifteen minutes debating which flowers to buy, and eventually went with a sprig of bright pink flowers in assorted sizes that I thought would match my dress nicely. Now I just need to turn them into a headband!

7th August 2010: Dress complete! I finished the dress today and I'm incredibly happy with how it's turned out! :D I can't wait for my wig to arrive so I can see how it looks together.

6th August 2010: Dress nearly finished... I started the dress this afternoon and all I've got left to do is add the shoulders (which I have to make first) and then hem the top. I feel like I'm making really good progress and it's coming out exactly how I wanted it to! I bought too much fabric though; I've got just over two metres spare, I think. But better to have too much than too little!

Unfortunately the shop I had planned to visit for buying fake flowers shut down some time ago, so I will definitely be visiting various garden centres with my boyfriend for them instead. :)

5th August 2010: Officially in progress! As it's my birthday today and I've recieved some money as a present, I've decided to start this by buying a wig off eBay! It's a gorgeous pumpkin-ish colour and it's really curly, so I can't wait for it to arrive. I've also recieved some vouchers for my favourite fabric store, so I'll be going out later to buy some fabric as well. :)

________________


As mentioned earlier, I ended up going out to the local fabric store to spend my vouchers. I found the perfect shade of pink on a roll, but unfortunately the fabric was slightly see-through and so I had to buy twice the amount so I could double the fabric up for when i make the dress. I also got some nice white chiffon for the shoulders, and some pink ribbon for the tie around the middle. I'm looking forward to working on it!

My boyfriend has said he will take me to some garden centres to look for fake flowers to use in the hair, so hopefully that search will be successful too. :)
