4th November 2010: Sadface Ok so, since I've been doing this properly I thought I'd finish off with a little recap and overview of how the costume actually went.
It's weird, I thought I'd be worried about my figure all day, but I didn't have time to worry about that because I was so drained from how badly everything was going. The tights were ripped, you could see the seams on the bloody things (though it wasn't as bad as I thought), I had to cut one of the legwarmers apart because it had broken so much, the other one was a nightmare by the end of the day and the shoecovers were also falling off eventually. I didn't bother with the makeup because I was stressed enough just getting to the point where I was IN the damn thing, which was kind of a pity.
In the end though, I had fun, and it didn't look too tragically bad, just a bit of a mess - I claim battle damage!
There's a lot I'd change if I ever do her again, but it could have been a lot worse than it actually was.
