18th June 2011: back into progress ok so its complete but i dint like the bow or the skirt so im remaking them lol 3rd time the charm
20th May 2011: finished :D finally finished this one off. It was just the little bits that needed doing, but its done. However i cant show the final result as my laptop has died and i cant upload pics unless its off my mobile. so yea hope to see you on saturday in the costume :D
18th May 2011: .... to answer peoples questions, as im getting a few asking me.
yes i did make the skirt from scratch, if you dont believe me thats ok but i know ive made it and added the detail.
nopey i didnt use a pattern its all guess work
and finally its about 4 meters of fabric with some spare to make a waist band.
from the pic it looks good from real life its average.
yesh i made that too, including the bow,(thats why its a bit wonky)
the only bit im using thats from my original is the sleeves as im terrible at dieing things. and my earring which the tallented bambi made :D
so yesh i hope thats answered any questions
2nd May 2011: the skirt i hate the skirt ive made the pleats are not lying flat, this is because ive not given enough material to each pleat to allow movent im gonna try and reattempt to make this on friday cos im working for the next 2 days and off material shopping thursday i just hope the material ischeap.
i might just make it out of 2 halfs and then attach them hmmmm not decided yet
2nd May 2011: white fabric so ive spent all night just getting it to lie right on the mannequin forgetting it had bigger boobs tham me, so i try it on and its all in the wrong place ¬.¬. sooooo i pinned it whilest it was on me now looks a lot better, i need to buy black baric or a black halter top to match the black bits you see on her outfit.
i think the worse part is going to be the painting on of the pattern i dont have steady hands or the patients to do it :( but ill give it a shot
23rd April 2011: what did you say just make a skirt .... seriously why do i think things are easy :( knife pleats and 2 box pleats for a total novice who doesnt measure correctly yea jaclyn a round of applause ....... ill put picks up when i can but aughhhhhhhhHHHHHHHHHHhhhhh
17th March 2011: i did it i faced my fears of poking myself in the eye and put them in, thanks to furiephoenix for all the help and advice as well as the contact lenses themselves im just chuffed i put em in :D hopefully i can do it again lmao
6th March 2011: bits to do for may ~make slit in skirt longer

I have to say FuriePhoenix has been amazing me = total novice at contact lenses, FuriePhoenix a really kind and helpful lady tells me tip and gives me adivce and just is wonderful THANK YOU FURIEPHOENIX. Anyway tonight she was helping me again and i was just sat in my front room with what i thought was an already opened parcel, well it wasn't it was the contacts that FuriePhoenix had been giving me advice on, so yea i can't believe i've been sat next to the contacts all this time lmao random things like this have been happening all night its really mad
