25th July 2011: Nearly complete! My dress is completely finished now :D So much love goes to Cat (Crazedteensie) and Zoe (Luminescence) as they made my dress between them. So that's completely done now :)
I made a kind of last minute decision to have the cape made as well, which I bought the material for today. Zoe is going to handle that for me within the next few days (I think we're having a couple of emergency cosplay sessions on Thursday and Friday just before Expo!).
Zoe also dyed the shoes for me using her shoe dye kit, but unfortunately it only picked up the dye in certain places so they're a bit patchy :( But she's going to do a second coating for me and if it still doesn't stick, paint them. Then everything is finished 8D
12th July 2011: Dress nearly finished :) Just got the cuffs on the sleeves and a bit of hemming, then its finished! I love my cosplay group :D
12th July 2011: Back into progress! Luminescence and CrazedTeensie are currently in the middle of making my dress and wig 8D Much looooooooooove
30th June 2011: Fabric Got the majority of fabric for this cosplay now (if not all of it)! I went to Abakhan with Lou and Zoe today and Lou bought the last bit of fabric I needed for me :) The two of them have donated bits and pieces for me as well - Lou, the red bit in the sleeves and Zoe, the collar. There was a 75% off sale on fabrics today so we did go a bit mad hahaha :P
With the fabric choices, I think this is going to end up looking a bit more like a Disney parks version of Snow White rather than original film colours. I think I'm planning on having a day with Zoe getting this one done. Hopefully should be finished soon!
29th January 2011: Progress Dress is officially in progress! Cat and Zoe started making it for me today and I'm really looking forward to getting it finished :) There's still quite a few things that need to be bought to get this cosplay completely done, but it doesn't need to be done until the summer anyway :)
The shoes arrived a while ago, but they're completely the wrong colour and not what I was aiming for. I'm gonna have to look out for some new ones, but I guess if I don't find any in the future, they'll have to do.
11th January 2011: Prince Charming I managed to convince the boyfriend into being Prince Charming for me when we do our Disney Princess group, seeing as my friends seem intent on getting their counterparts for the group too. I made a quick collage from various images, but there aren't very many clear reference shots of Prince Charming unfortunately :( Very excited about getting him to do this with me :D
10th January 2011: Shoes Got my eyes on some nice yellow shoes on eBay that look a perfect colour for the skirt part of the dress :D The auction ends on Sunday so I'm gonna keep an eye on them until then. They're only £9 but will need a bow adding :)
6th January 2011: The beginning Bought some fabric to start this off today, got a nice blue velvet for the top half of the dress and a really nice bright yellow satin 8D Very happy!
