Esmeralda - The Hunchback of Notre Dame




~19th April 2012~
Lolz apparently I had this planned for kitacon. Fail. I've had it in mind ever since I got my money from dear ol' nana that I wanted to do this. Got the breakdown in my sketch book and I've decided to do it for may expo in place of redoing Pocahontas. When I was Pocahontas I freezing cold and I'm hoping Esmeralda will be a bit warmer. Moving it to in progress seeing as I already have the jewellery and I'll buy the corset at some point this week or next week.

The Shirt is done minus the collar. I can't be bothered to put it on now I have other stuff to worry about, It looks just as good without it.

More progress!

okay so, the purple skirt has been shortened and now has a rolling hem. The under skirt is finished, it's got lace round the bottom and is now elasticated. The jop just need elastic and a collar and it's done. I finished off the waist scarf thing in a day, cut out a square 1 metre by 1 metre, Hand stitched the trim all the way round and put then attached the coins 7inches apart. :D

More shit bought.

Got thin gold ribbon to sew onto the boning of the corset. Thicker gold ribbon for the trim of the waist scarf. I also now have my coins, laser cut from 2mm MDF. I've done sun and moon designs on them in 3d paint, didn't want boring plain coins. I will then spray paint them gold.

Skirty progress

Elasticated the skirt finally after dragging myself away from Mass effect 3. I'm debating the underskirt in my head cause the skirt swishes so nicely and I don't wana ruin it. Gonna give it to my mum so she can take it to work and put a rolling hem on it using the overlocker. The top i'm wearing is my Ariel top since its kinda the same style but i'll be making the top as soon as I get the material. Also need to iron my headscarfbandthing so its flat.

Hair scarf/band..thing.

I couldn't find any material in the colour so I cut a strip of the material I have left over from my Alice liddell underskirt and hand dyed it. It's a little darker than I would have liked but it's such pretty colour~
Gonna tidy it up and sew it tomorrow.

26th April 2012


Cut my skirt out last night and its been sewn together. It's not quite a full circle skirt but its good enough considering I didn't use a pattern. I'm gonna get a rolling hem put on it but I gotta take the skirt up first. The waistband will be elasticated. Still gotta by a gold trim for a corset and belt/scarf thing as the left over stuff I have is not enough.

Corset Arrived

Wearing my Ariel skirt with it to cover up my lovely pink penguin pyjamas. Well pleased with it 8D

Brought a nice green underbust corset, Such a pretty colour. T'was a little expensive for my tastes but I figured I'll probably end up using it for waist training anyway so its a worthwhile investment. I'll find a swanky gold trim to stich onto it when I can
