Costume Information

- Okay! So I've decided to go to LFCC for Saturday and Sunday. But I couldn't decided what to wear on Sunday! So then I came across this gypsy top on ebay and I thought. Hang on. That's like thumbelina! And then I found a skirt. It's a bit darker than in the film but in the box art it's the perfect colour! I've found a green underbust corset that might not be TOO accurate but I think it might do the trick. If not I'll make/edit the top so it's got the green.

For the wig I'll be getting one of the ones that has a short wig and then two ponytails. But I'll either be using just one ponytail or depending on the thickness try and fit both on one side.

Not sure how I'll be doing the hairband yet but it's all part of the fun =D If only I had a man in tights to join me =[ oh wells XD

Thumbelina was one of my favourites as a kid and I remember trading the video with Phee so she could have Ferngully and I'd have Thumbelina XD I love all the songs and always wanted to shrink myself down and walk around my garden =D I can't wait!

- Moved into completed because everything's arrived :D

- I decided not to go to LFCC today due to various reasons but I'll get photos soon!

Shopping List

We're very sorry, but we've temporarily disabled this feature while we fix some bugs. Thank you for your patience.


Completed :D (Posted 30th June 2011)

Everything's arrived now so we're completed! I'll be getting pictures later ^_^...after my dentist appointment =/

Everything Bought (Posted 19th June 2011)

Everything is bought now :D the wig has arrived too so all I'm waiting for is the daisy and green headbands. Then I'll put it all together and hopefully it'll work. I may get another gypsy top though because the one I have is very baggy. I also want to curl the ends of the wig a little bit so it's not completely straight. But at least I don't have to worry about this one...I hope ^^ no rushing around XD I've learnt my lesson after Kitacon

Cummberbund (Posted 11th June 2011)

Okay so it's not accurate, it's a man item of clothing, and it's probably the wrong shade of green xD but I thought it might work quite well. It was cheap with a short delivery date so I can try it out before trying to find anything better if it doesn't work out. I did want a corset but it was very hard to find a nice shade of green, a short delivery date AND at a low cost >_> But hopefully this should look alright :D yay
