Aleera (Dress Commision) - Van Helsing



My first [non jewelry/accessory] Commision,

This is for a lady [from the other side of the world] who tracked me down over the internet to make her an Aleera Dress.

I was very honoured to get this commision as she spoke so highly my cosplay :') haha I only hope I can live up to her expectations!

And it's Finally Finished!

After 2weeks of solid work this commision is finished all that's left to do is to contact the commisioner and finish the payment process (well that's if she likes the dress!) All I pray is that it fits her! I added a ribbon at the top of the shoulders to prevent the shoulders from falling down (a problem I had with my dress as the sleeves are too heavy) but as she'll be waring a long wig it won't be visible and as this isn't a for a cosplay I doubt she'll mind all that much other she'll be body tapeing herself into the dress (which won't be desirable me thinks!) well *fingers crossed* xxx

Hand Sewing takes forever xD

Looking at what I've made so far I don't feel like I've accomlished that much considering I've spent well over 20hours on it. Saying that so much of it has been hand sewn, I made all the embelishments roung the waist so they took quite a while to get done, not mention making the sewing pattern for the top lining part so that it has good support and will fit well. I've spent alot more time on this costume than I did on my own lol, guess I don't want to dissapoint my first customer :). But in all honesty I probably wont take on another dress commision as the amount of time and effort I put in the payout isn't time effective, not to mention how stressful its been. The next parts will be relatively quick to make in comparrision, and I'm well on my way to meeting my deadline of July 31st ^^ xxx
