Since I still haven't had a chance to get a new sewing machine, I'll have to sew this by hand. Guess it means more practise and once I get a new sewing machine, I can go over it.
So I'm definately going for the cloak idea, so I'll be using my own pattern again. For the materials I'm planning to use a Royal blue duchess satin for the cloak so it gives a slight shine to it. Also I'm thinking of using white fleece for the wings on the head and use fimo air light clay to make the horn.
I've been debating about how to go about doing the balls on the neck and the tail (corners of the cloak in my case) I've looked at wooden balls and they appear to heavy, so thats out. I have one option so far and that is make the balls out of fimo air light light, make a small hole for the fabric to go through, sand them down, paint them then sew them onto the cloak. Advantage is the clay will be light, but still thinking about this.
I'm keeping the white dress simple as I want to pay more attention to the cloak. Also got Royal blue tights for underneath.
