13th May 2010: Update =) Well I got the wig 6 days after ordering =) and you can see what it looks like...i'm still not convinced I suit blonde lool but most people seem to think it looks good?? so thats the main thing I guess ^^

Iv'e decided to use the same pattern that was used on my bridesmaid dress for my Brothers wedding =) but just make it shorter and not have seams all the way down the front, as I really like that dress on me lol

Have ordered some cotton jersey for it, not sure if the colour is exact but I think it will look okayy. Have also ordered some gold mirror foil for the detail at the top of the dress and also for the belts, which i'm going to make out of craft foam and sew the gold over the top =) and probably attach with Velcro.

The sleeves i'll probably make using a pattern ive alreay got as a guideline...and the pattern i'm going to do using fabric paint =)

Also ordered some beads for her Necklace so can make that when they arrive ^^ Street-Angel has kindly offered to make her gems for me =) I was going to cast my own but due to time and not really having the spare money (resin is so expensive >_<) have taken her up on the offer =) I'll probably glue them onto the dress once I have them.

Still need to order some fabric for the cape-thing =/ but that won't take long to make so...and still need to find some shoes ¬¬ well I may use my bridemaid shoes as they are dyeable, not accuarate but due to time I may end up using them and find some accurate ones for another time.

I shall be starting the dress as soon as the fabric arrives and the same with the jewelrey =) Hopefully will all look look good in the end~

29th April 2010: Wig =) Have just ordered the wig from cosplaywig on ebay =) after a lot of debating and advice from friends I decided to go for the one with the lighter blue highlights as most people seemed to prefer that one to the other one I was looking at, this one also has a better styled fringe and iv'e seen it in person =)

Also went with the ems shipping so should get here within the next few weeks =)
I just hope it looks as nice on me ^^'
