18th January 2015: Improvements As mentioned, I made a cloak from spare fabric, purchased a crown and as seen in the photos made wrist cuffs. The wrist cuffs were made from the same fabric as the cloak, with a strip of lace across the middle, feathers glues to the top end and a bid skull charm added to the middle of the fabric.
I've improved using make-up in general since the last time I wore this costume so I made sure to use eyeliner this time and make it quite heavy, I also had some deeper coloured lipgloss. I think working on my make up really helped with this costume.
17th January 2015: Improvements Made a cloak from scratch last night- I mostly wanted this as it's freezing outside and even though it hides some of the detailing, I still think it looks pretty. Adding more feathers everywhere! I couldn't afford to make a head dress so i have a sort of crown instead which works as I can see Raven to be quite proud.
19th November 2014: To be improved for a shoot There is a lot I would like to improve about this costume, mostly the skirt and detailing. I'm also considering making some sort of headdress/head piece to give a better effect. And of course more feathers!
8th August 2013: Progres~ The skirt is now hemmed, just need to add the organza at the back and I can start gluing on all the feathers (going to take me ages). Lots of thanks to Kila for helping to pin the bottom!
Not got a lot left to do for this costume now :)
16th July 2013: Progress Pinned my skirt to mannequin now that it's been cut to the right length. Needs hemming but I can't do this until my sewing machine starts working again ¬¬
Have ordered feathers so once they come can start attaching them to the organza for the insert.
Decided to not have a mask in the end as my eyesight is really crappy and that wouldn't help! So instead I'm going to do a few more make up tests with make up that is more striking. I don't normally wear make up so this will be a bit of a challenge.
6th July 2013: More things have arrived! My corset has finally arrived and I do love it <3 So has my organza so I can start making the skirt for Raven now. I still need to order feathers for the back insert but I'm going to have to wait until I've been paid.
2nd July 2013: Wrap progress Complete (added all the beads after this photo was taken.
Will be attached to my corset.
2nd July 2013: Wrap Feathers have arrived for my shoulder wrap thing x3 They're really nice, a good length and have the green sheen I was after! Going to add some lace and possibly add some beads for extra detail :)
28th June 2013: Hoop skirt has arrived It's huge and I love it! the trail at the back should look nice and I'm glad I'm adding all the feathers. Excited to start work on this :D
11th June 2013: Start Started to search for fabrics and it's proving to be harder than I though to find something I like (think that's just me being pick!).
Found this stole/wrap online and I want to create something similar as it would be perfect for Raven.
