9th December 2008: Hellraiser Skirt The cage! To me, the most important part of the costume. I have made a grid of boning held together with pins pushed through, so it's a bit spikey to try on XD
Just sewing the cage to the waistband made it fall flat from the belt, so I sewed it upside down, allowing it to bend back on itself and hold the shape.
I'm going to use the busstle method of a stip of fabric attached at each side seam of the cage rather than a bumroll as this will be cooler and lighter, I will have to be careful how far down I take this as the front of the skirt is open :)
