Dark Knight Meg - Disney Dressphere Project


AyaCon 2013




It's a costume that I'm thinking about doing but don't want to reveal it untill I've actually got some progress on it.

Hot Glue, papier mache, craft foam, hair dryers and paint. Oh my.

15/07/13 Actually pretty excited. Main body is done construction wise now in the painting process.

Black primer worked like a treat. Purple paint? Not so much. Mixed it to perfection painted it on, was well chuffed. Returned later when it had dried to find it had turned black. Ah well just needs another coat. Paints on new coat and goes about other business. Return to same result. Ok less blue. Dries brown. Right add white? Dries grey. Had to go out and buy more paint >_<;; Finally the addittion of magenta gets something that is probably the closest im going to get. Not trying again. Done Tough.

I HATE painting. Can't seem to get it to look the way I want. Oh well. ONWARDS!

Completed this costume the Wednesday night and also tried it all on for the first time on Wednesday night.

Transported it with utter care to Aya on the Thursday but did not end up wearing it untill the Friday afternoon because it had started to rain Friday morning and because of Matt Mercer in the afternoon.

Put it on, strutted about in it in all glory for a short while before going to three different panels before the meet at 8. Probably not the best idea i have had in a while. Costume did not survive the panels as well as I would have hoped and was rather worse for wear for the meet. Still! T'was fun.

Alas this costume did not survive on the way back to birmingham. May remake for Ame14 may not.


There be a costume! Well blow me down. Now to see if it will survive public transport. XS

Last layer of paint warped it, starting again. Sigh.
