23rd March 2014: Dress 90% (Costume test) Decided to try it on to see if it fits before putting on the straps, and then took a picture hurr.
I should have used this opportunity to try out the look with all the bling I've gathered too but oh well, maybe next time XD
Excuse the totally wrong bra with this cosplay, I have a strapless one to wear but couldn't be assed to change it just for the picture.
My shoes are at Charlie's house atm. So I can't wear the whole thing until Kita anyway XD
23rd March 2014: Dress 90% Just need straps, woo!!
I think the dress is a bit full oops. I flared it out so much that it was a circle skirt, not realising that a circle skirt would be too full. Oh well! There's horsehair braid in the hem as well which I took the idea from Rufflebutt Cosplay. I would have never thought to stiffen the hem!
Basically I fell in the past couple of days so I really didn't have time to make Fly Away, so I thought hey, the red dress is super simple, I can make that in a few hours! And so voila, a red dress 4hrs later...
I patterned it by taking a standard bodice pattern and a circle skirt pattern and Frankensteining the two together.
