Information

Pretty Butterfly Dress designed by Alexander McQueen for Effie Trinket in Hunger Games 2.

The butterflies were all made a couple of weeks ago along with the fascinator.
I printed them and laminated them with matt sheets. I was worried that they would collapse on me if it was wet, then they would just be a soggy papier-mache!!
this way the will be stiffer to sew on and will last for a long while.


Fabric from Spoonflower USA ordered 8 April

21/5/14 Arrived today - this is the closest I have ever come to not finishing a costume.
I now have 2 days to make dress in "phew"
A word to the wise - I ordered the fabric and expected to pay import duty (£4.29) on it. I wasn't expecting the PO to charge £8 to handle a parcel with import duty. Watch out for the hidden extras when ordering from abroad!

That wig is looking great! For the shoes, have you considered wedges with the teeth/claws painted on neutral background colour?

Thank you all very much - I hope its not too windy as the wig has a mind of its own! Lots of kirby grips I expect!
