30th October 2013: Finished So this was my halloween costume, the literary 'fairy queen'. It was a costume I put together from references to the fairy queen's appearance and stylistic features in 3 texts, Fiest's Faerie Tale, Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream and Chaucer's The Merchant's Tale.
It's a fairly simple cosplay. The dress is shop bought and unaltered, as the jewellary. Most of the (relatively little) work went into the wig and make up designs.
The wig I attached the silver/grecian head-band. I initially tried to sow it pernamently in place, but laterly found it sat better with simple kirby grips digging into my skull.
The eyemakeup took a bit of practise and a lot of patience, but I admit I'm delighted with how it came out. I've never considered myself artistic, so being able to get it to look as I wanted was a fantastic feeling!
I may redo this further one day - I like the idea of making cuff jewellary for the wrists, plaited bands for the upper arms, and trying to get butterlies to stick throughout the wig, body, and dress to give an even more fairy-like quality. But, for now, this is going to be retired. It's been fun to do quickly, but I want to move onto some other projects now.
5th October 2013: Contacts! Had a play with the contact lenses today, and tried out some make up ideas. Not sure about the look though, so I think I'll try a few more things out!

Ahh I never actually read the book by this author (despite reading others by him) but I love the design you picked - the make up especially really sets it off!
