Pretty pretty!! :D

The shade is perfect 8D but I know what you mean about the shiny. Maybe that could be an under layer and you could use chiffron over it which is also flowy and will lessen the shine 8Da

I agree. The colour is stunning! x.

Hairband and wig (Posted 7th April 2012)

Babemroze let me borrow her wig head thingy so i could style my wig properly. I had to trim down the hairband so now its perfectly fitted to the wig. i'm still gonna give it a bit of a style up before i wear it, but i feel much more confident that it'll look amaze.

Finally Complete (Posted 6th March 2012)

I'm so glad this goddamn dress is done. omg. I've put in so much effort, hard work and attention to detail and it's paid off, even if I do say so myself. After getting all the wrong types of Vilene to stiffen the belt, My mum finally managed to find Iron-on Vilene. The belt has more pleats in it that originally intended but it got to the point where I was past caring about accuracy and more caring about what would look and hold better. The dress is hemmed so it trails behind me but so i don't step on the front it like Phee McFlipperfeet. The underbust sash has had the fastenings change and its nw fully detachable and alot tighter. Might give the hairband and extra spray but thats not really essential. I'm gonna style my wig a little more the night before I wear this. Pictures will probably come later.

Hairband done (Posted 26th February 2012)

Made from foam, I researched some ancient Greek designs and decided i didn't really like the geometric designs so i opted for a more floral design based on golden laurels and a typical Grecian flower design in the center. I used 3d paint to put a little border and the details on the leaves. My cat decided to sit in it whilst it was drying but you can't see where it smudged a little. She got her comeuppance I had to cut the dried 3d paint off her tail fur. I measured it around my wig and it'll look great when I poof my pony tail up a bit. :B Well chuffed how this cosplay is turning out.

Dress Progress and Swirlies (Posted 17th February 2012)

So the dress is finnnnnnallllyy sewn together with a purple bit under the bust. The underbust purple part has poppers in the back so i can easily get the dress on over my head and it will be cinched in and and fitted nicely when done up at the back, No zip needed i'm glad about that cause i think a zip would just ruin the overall look of the dress. The swirlies are glued together and spray painted gold. Just gotta attach them, Make the belt, Make the hair thingy and hem the dress and then i'm done. Have a sneaky peek of ma swirlies, do excuse the armour underneath :D

Swirly gigs. (Posted 8th February 2012)

The swirly button thingies. Laser cut out of ply-wood I think. I dunno. I have to paint them white and glue the swirl to the button before i can spray paint them. i'm gonna try and weather them a bit so they go with my dapper jesus boots.

Meg test (Posted 7th February 2012)

The wig has kind of curled. I'm past caring. IT WILL DO. I don't want to maim a perfectly good wig. The make-up was just a quick try over my Odile make-up so its deffo not the finished look. The dress skirt still needs to be sewn to the top and i should be getting the swirly disk thingies tonight.

Stubborn wig. Stupid dress! (Posted 6th February 2012)

Stubborn wig won't frickin' curl! i've used my straightners. nothing. just kinks. so annoying! at the moment is hung up on a curtain with foam curlers in and copious amounts of hairspray, styling spray and water gonna give it a blow dry later on see how it goes. Poxy thing! I'd put up a sneaky peek of my dress but it doesn't want to be photographed at all. It just looks shite whatever i do. But it looks reaaaaaaallllllllllllllyyyyyy good in real life. I just have to attach the skirt to the top. Add the swirly wirly thingies and do the dark purple bits. stupid stupid outfit. Sandles look pretty with it though. Gotta be happy about that.

Shoes and some dress progress (Posted 31st January 2012)

It occurred to me earlier this evening that I hadn't even thought about shoes for this meg dress. So of to eBay I went and found some dapper Nazareth knock-abouts, some Jesus boots, some really pretty gladiator sandals. I know Megs are brown and kinda boring. so i opted for some gold ones. Fuck logic. (pic related) They were cheap, they were pretty and they look kinda authentic. in a way. So i guess that's why i got them. As i figured i'd probably go for a dusty gold and bronze accents on my dress. Speaking of the dress it's going slow as issues at home are a little more dire than a dress. But now things are hopefully perking up I've managed to cut the panels of the lower part of the dress out. If it doesn't work i'm not gonna be surprised cause I didn't use a pattern. I bodged it. Hope for the best.

Wig (Posted 20th January 2012)

This morning my wig arrived! it took some effort to get all of my hair under it but with a few bobby pins i think i've succeeded. It unstyled at the moment but i'm gonna be adding a few ringlets at the sides and the end of the pony tail. i'm well happy with it cause its such a pretty colour! goes nice with the purple dress. Fabulous!

Note: Due to blatant plagiarizing of features on my dress I will not be updateing the progress on it here until it's complete. However it will be updated on my facebook. :Db

Progress! (Posted 6th January 2012)

The top has been cut and tacked for now. i'm gonna sew it later. Just faffing about with the material AS YA DO. To see what it might look like all together and voila. with and without the top purple-y bit. its not all permanent just pinned together for now i'll be buying my wig as some point today to. I'm like in love with it barely needs any styling just a quick floof and curl. :D

Top cut (Posted 30th December 2011)

The top has been cut and pinned, gonna do the top a little different to how i usually do, i'm gonna add the cowl neckline as a seperate peice of material over a normal empire line top. Hopefully it'll look dapper.

Material Faffing (Posted 29th December 2011)

As you can see i got a Mannequin dress form thingy for Christmas and i got a bit carried away setting it up. This is a quick little set up of how I kinda want my dress to look. obviously not exactly like that as this was done with the uncut material and pins. But it will have the cowl neckline, hopefully a boned waist and the lines of the boning will flow nicely down the skirt. If everything goes to plan. Woo.

Material Query (Posted 12th October 2011)

I actually have the perfect colour satin for this dress that i got 3 metres of when i got a darker purple for my esmeralda dress (ickle diddy picture related) BUT i'm not sure i like the idea of megs dress being satin at all. I want the dress to swish like hers does but not shine. So i'm gonna look for a light linen or cotton perhaps. who knows its all a mystery for now
