2nd May 2011: Skirt Just to prove I haven't given up . . . yet!
I am slowly working my way through the skirt which has a base topped with 28 petals (5 of which are complete), there are 7 layers and the little white tabs indicate which layer they go on. I have placed some of the petals on the base just so you get an idea of what it is like . . . but I got bored >< IT IS TAKING HOURS!!! why must I insist on hand sewing? My thoughts at the moment are indifferent, I can't really judge it until it is finished . . . even if it will be the death of me.

28th March 2011: Update Today I had a make-up test, and I approve of my choice (Barry M) as the red is wonderfully vibrant I just need more practice applying it.
I have also posted another photo of how the costume looks on me at this stage. I am very unsure about it because it just doesn't feel right and the leggings (at the top) don't fit so I have so much left to do. If I still don't like it after I have made the skirt then i can see me scrapping it which would be an absolute shame because I really have put my heart into this one =[

25th January 2011: Progress!! Today I began structuring the top as you can see in my uploaded photo. It proved to be quite a challenge and took quite a while to figure out a logical pattern. You can also see my attempt to cover my breast up and when t is finished my tummy won't be completely on display either . . . well I hope. Some of it is still only pinned so it looks a bit messy, but I am pretty chuffed It is going to take me ages to do this top but I can't wait to finish it ^^ The photo does unfortunately make the fabric look dull, but it is in fact a lovely red.
The image wouldn't upload so I will try another time when I have made more progress.

25th November 2010: It Begins . . . The beautiful wig arrived today, hurray! I think the colour is perfect but I am not looking forward to having to style it for I am awful at cutting wigs =[
Hopefully this weekend I will be able to actually start the construction of the Headdress, but I can't promise anything XD
Also I have decided that I shall be displaying my tummy when I make the costume but my breasts will be completely covered. I am not that confident!

1st November 2010: Reference Research Results Well I found I picture of the back in a very low quality game play video. Firstly it shows that the hair is in a bob style and not her default's braided style which is quite nice actually as it will be a little cheaper and less hassle to style ^^ (I hate styling wigs ¬¬)
The dress is also backless as well as strapless *despair*. So I am going to have to look into 'invisible' bras and tape so it won't fall off and so I am more secure. Advice would be wonderful!
I am still deciding if I wish to but my tummy on show or not as I am worried that if I cover it up I will be adding too much to the costume and 'over doing' it a little. Opinions would also be wonderful if anyone reads this.
