2nd January 2014: Iron on gems To add that pretty bling to the dress, I used iron on gems in 3 sizes.
I may need to press them down harder next time as they didn't quite all stick down properly and may need to add more to make it more fabulous ;D
2nd January 2014: Double layer I had no idea what fabric to use for that brown part of Sheryl's dress that would look elegant and sparkle. After some time searching, I still couldn't find the perfect thing X<
But one day when I was looking round in a fabric shop, I got hold of some brown chiffon and draped it over some sparkly mess fabric which actually ended up looking quite nice :) It's a bit difficult to see the stars but I'm happy the effect is there!
Goes to show sometimes it can be great to experiment with fabrics to see what cool effects u could possibly get :)
2nd January 2014: Base dress Made the base dress in a week using red taffeta ready to be blinged up :)
2nd December 2013: Sheryl wig A long while ago I purchased a wig which I was planning to use for Sheryl or even Kirakishou. When it came to me, gorgeous colour but it was probably 20cm too short for either but I kept it anyways. Another time I purchased a creamy peach wig for a Toko Murasame cosplay. Again it was beautiful but I felt it needed a little volume. However, getting a second wig to weft was going to be expensive so this is where the the first pinkish wig came into play ;D
I completely destroyed the pink wig and wefted everything into the longer peach one. I was a little concerned at first whether this will make the colour go weird but it came out looking rather pretty!! <3
