possibly the most baring costume i will ever do, hopefully i won't be on a confidence low over the ayacon weekend xD slightly nervous to be wearing this as i'm a pretty curvy person with a few jiggly bits, but hopefully the amount of sparkle and pretty i plan on putting on this will distract everyone

Sparklies progress

So tedious...but hopefully worth it??

Top sparklification

Glass pearls and flatback gems, with possibly sequins to follow on the shoulder bits. The main body of the top will be covered in scattered iridescent sequins and flatback gems, with some Disney sparkle stars™ formed out of the gems.

It begins

A poor photo of the beginning of sparklification. Iridescent sequins sewn in a (wonky) scale pattern around part of the waistband with green swarovski beads and barely seen green seed beads :P the edge of the "fins" are also coated in glitter.

Bloomer shorties mock-up

Bought all the fabrics for this, so now in progress! Made this mock-up to test the fit and such before cutting into the lovely (expensive) 100% silk fabric I got for the proper ones. I've decided to make the shorts into mini bloomers for a few reasons (not that the design isn't already fabulous because it is) :P but i think they're a bit cuter and will go with the outfit a bit more, i'll feel much more comfortable in these than i would in tight hotpants, and (weird reason) the puffy shape personally gives me more images of it being inspired by the sea than hotpants made of more rigid fabric would? this sounds ridiculous, but they're my reasons xD (made using the coletterie madeline mini bloomer pattern/tutorial)
