Information

So I stumbled upon this beautiful design on DeviantArt one night and decided to make it for the Amecon ball as it's just so pretty :O

I'm not going completely to the design though, I'm doing a different wig and making nice accessories and things, getting the colours I think will look nicely on me, etc

But yeah, PRETTY DRESS STUFF

EDIT:
Kk so changing the design a little just so it'll suit/fit me a bit better!

This design looks really lovely and the wig is so pretty! I look forward to seeing the finished costume :)

Ooh this is a kinda (not really) similar idea to my miku rainbow dress for the ball, would love to have piccies with you if I see you, I love how the dress is turning out so far!

The dress look lovely. Its a great bold design but you still manage to look very elegant in it. Great work!

Top progress

Argh! Even with the Klan Klan dress this top has been a logistical nightmare >___<

But here's the back of the top layer (sans collar), too headachey to do any more for now but most of the rest is all pinned up for tomor-... later today

A stroke of luck

So it turns out that my Klan Klan dress is almost the perfect mock up for the ballgown top layer :D can use it as a pattern which will make my life a lot easier, just need to make this one more floaty and with a chinese style collar~

New Reference

Decided the bust line wouldn't suit me very well and would be quite impractical with the fabric I'm using so I opted to change the top a little.

This is my sketch of the changes I'll be making, mainly the white layer~

Wig change

As much as I love the Coscraft wig I got for this, once both the wig and fabric arrived there was more purple than blue in it for it to match D:

Being a derp and forgetting that I already had a blue wig for Klan Klan (Macross Frontier) I think I'll be wearing that instead~

(Excuse derp face, lack of makeup, messy Klan Klan style and the fact I have the eartips on)

Base skirt

So here's the base skirt (also my cute ball shoes), just needs a waistband but I'm going to wait until I have the other layers sorted first and then band them all together~

Fabric drape test

My fabric FINALLY arrived! >_< postage was ridiculous... I'm just testing out shapes and colours by draping over my mannequin~

SO PRETTY AND EXCITING

Ear bend

Please ignore my horrible skin for now, this is just to show of the ear bend I finished making :D

I'm really happy with it! I think I'm going to style my wig in a nice side sweep as well so it's more visible~

I'm happy to make these for other people in different colours and such, please DM me if you're interested in commissioning me for one!

Petticoat test

Just testing what it'd look like with a layer of the fabric I'm using over the top, pity the actual hoop skirt is quite short (even on me!) so I'll have to think of a way to make it not show too much...

8th July 2012

Woop woop, I has a hoop~

Petticoat/hoop skirt arrived :D
