Amecon 2012

24th July 2011: Pretty much done The skirts are done, mum sorted out the sleeves for me (so grateful ;.; Gotta work on mah sleeve skillz)
Not sure if I'm still wearing this for Manchester, but will definately be taking this to Fushicon and maybe Aya!

20th July 2011: Back to work With Rapunzel nearly done, I figured I should do some more on this.
Put the red on the top and the pink on the skirt, and remade the sleeves. I tried attatching the sleeves to the top, but I SUCK AT GATHERING AND ATTACHING GATHERED SLEEVES. Tomorrow I may have to get madre to help me (she's used the same pattern before)

24th April 2011: Top Started on the top today. Made two as the first one screwed up epically (wrong size, managed to put a hole in it, spilt juice on it >.<). The second one is much better now c: Just got to do the hem and the red

11th February 2011: Shoes To remove the temptation of buying this for other costumes, I bought some black ballet pump type shoes for this today c:

20th December 2010: Headband I made it today~ It's just a hoop of black velvet ribbon XD

23rd November 2010: Fabric shopping Started buying fabric for this
So far I have.... Navy blue t-shirt fabric for the top, white fabric for the skirt and sleeves, pink chiffon for the overskirt, red fabric for detail and black velvet ribbon for her headband
WOO

OH MY GOSH it actually makes my day to see her Appreciated xD

Black Cauldron was my favourite Disney movie as a kid and I don't even KNOW how many times I've read the Chronicles of Prydain!!

I love you so much for doing this ~<3

I was debating whether to dig out my Link sword from the CosplayCuboardofDoom for you to do heroic poses with :) Let's watch Black Cauldron when I come over for Disneyland!

TheStarlightFairy - 22nd November 2011
Aww thank you everyone!

@Furie: It's suprisingly simple to make and is so comfy ^^ I think the hardest bit was trying to tame all the chiffon and get bias binding round the edges (never going to attempt to hem chiffon without bias ever again lmao)
