I was dragged along to an Expo in 2009 by my friend, who hooked me with the promise of dressing up.

My mum made me an amazing Sailor Jupiter costume, and I've been slowly learning how to make things, until I can very proudly say that Black Swan was made entirely by me!

Well, it's almost done. I've got the majority of the bodice done. What needs to be done now is: finish embelishing the bodice;
make and bedazzle the topplate;
add the ripped netting and feathers to the sides of the bodice;
add the fastenings;
Make the basque and attach it.

Okay...put like that, I've still got a tonne to do.

So I bought my make up today. Just simple black and white facepaint. The actual makeup used is all M.A.C. which is a) not avaliable in my city and b) bloody expensive if you find it. I do have M.A.C. lipstick, but its not quite the right shade. It's pretty damn close though. I added silver eyeshadow over the white, because the streaks are acutally silver. No picture though, brother had the camera and he was somewhere between Peterborough and Edinburgh.

I also found some black velvet in my costume box (score!) so I'm going to start altering my Kraehe bodice tomorrow. I can't believe I'm ripping apart a costume that took me so long! Even if it is to make another one ><
