Kitacon 2014

28th February 2014: Wig gets and skirt completed. Managed to get a wig perfect for C.C through a friend who was having a sale. Just needs some minor styling and then its ready for a test shoot.

Skirt is now pretty much complete. The only thing left is the hem which I'm holding off doing until I get the hoop skirt.

24th September 2012: Corset Mock Up I decide to go for a full steel boned Dore Corset for this. Found a method on-line that interested me. It isn't the method that comes with most corset patterns but it does allow better stability between the inner and outer halves of the corset. It also strengthens the boning channels. Hopefully it will work.

13th June 2012: Skirt progress Have finished sewing all the panels together for the skirt. I did go with a textured center panel in the front but decided it didn't work for what I wanted so I'm taking it out and putting in a panel of the same material as the rest of the skirt.

Once that is done then its onto the waistband. I'll be doing a 2 part one. Part elastic, part fitted so that if I do have any weight gain/loss that it will still fit me.

2nd May 2012: The choker progress Part 2 (finishing) Finishing the choker by adding beads to decorate the velvet band. I wanted something a little extra but not too drastic so the beads are kept quite small. These were hand sewn on. Sorry about the blur of the photo.

2nd May 2012: The Choker Progress Pt 1 Setting up the velvet band of the choker ready to attach the Cameo. The band itself was brought. I have then sealed the ends and have added fastenings on the ends. I've hand sewn them on and made sure that they are really secure.

2nd May 2012: The choker Cameo Part 2 Painting the cameo. This is done by starting with a black base coat and then dry brushing on the colours. I do several layers to make the colours really pop. Once its dry I then seal it with a clear hardcoat varnish. Its is then ready to be added to the velvet band.

2nd May 2012: The choker Cameo Part 1 The necklace starting point. The centre cameo pieces. Getting them set up. I've brought the parts separately. I've sanded the face piece to fit the frame. They are then glued together.

24th April 2012: The choker My brother found some fabric in his stock that he thought would work well for this so he has offered to me. Keen to make a start on this I've been putting together the choker. I'll be making one of my cameos like I did for Madam Red and then adding it to a piece of velvet that will be made stronger.

I have seen a wig a like for it which I hope to order very soon.

Amy-Lou, I'll try my best to describe it. Its tricky to describe without showing but I hope it does make the boning channels a bit easier.
