Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

11th April 2012: Neck Lace the last piece...all ready to go!

10th April 2012: finished the costume...minus the jewellery...3 days before Kita...

10th April 2012: Wings The wings are actually the part of the costume I like least. The rolled hem I did on it isn't as nice as I'd like it to be...the finish is a bit shoddy on it but yeah...might redo

8th April 2012: Crown Lovely crown, made from foam PVC by my lovely BF Paul.

7th April 2012: Lycra Applique The Front of the butterfly. Actually really happy with this, it was relatively simpler than I thought it would be :)

7th April 2012: Lycra Applique The back of the "butterfly"

6th April 2012: Lycra Applique Ok, the next milestone was the butterfly Design on the chest. My friend Mollins linked me to a great tutorial that had a step by step how to do appliqué with Lycra. It works!

2nd April 2012: Leotard Leotard. WIP. I went for a shiny wet look spandexy fabric I found on my local Market. I's probably not the best fabric I've ever bought and I may end up remaking at some point...but it looks ok to me

2nd April 2012: Boot Covers Ok, so after I made the gloves, the time came to glue the leggings onto the shoes...bit nerve racking if I'm honest, and I did kinda mess it up a bit, but not that you would really notice. I think they came out great, but I needed a solution to the sliding down issue. I found that on The superhero costume Forum, who had a tutorial by the awesome DJ Spider on attaching leggings to dance tights.

30th March 2012: Leotard Here's the pattern for the Leotard. It's not as open as it needs to be, but then again it looks good to me and is more...revealing than any costume I've made so far!

30th March 2012: Gloves I made another one, which was too big and finally the last one was the good one. there is a step by step thing I posted on Facebook on how I made these.

I think it's public and although I'm no expert, the gloves are holding ok :)

28th March 2012: Gloves Ok, those were my first attempt at making Lycra gloves. These turned out too small.

21st March 2012: Legs so got a shiny Lycra and made the leggings using Ranma 1/2's tutorial to get me started...Thanks Steve! Much happier with this look :)

20th March 2012: Legs I didn't like the look I was getting with the vinyl so I pinned some Lycra around my legs and instantly liked it better! It was the wrong colour so shopping would be required.

20th March 2012: Legs So to start with I got some vinyl to do the legs, and unfortunately, 4 way yellow vinyl is pretty much impossible to get in this country. The vinyl I used is only 1 way and I couldn't get it to work

8th March 2012: Wig I tried to do this with my own hair, but had this wig in the box that seemed fitting, and it kinda looks ok...
