Well the sumer has been an gone and I made 7 costumes in total, much to my husbands displeasure, or should I say his wallet? They all went well and I got some great feedback from the public at the events, I even won an award : D
So the sunshine is waning and I need distraction, I have 3 more in the pipeline to keep me going, including two I have wanted to do for a very long time. The first is easy and realitivly cheap - Poison Ivy. I have decided on a comic book version but with some tweaks inspired by Uma Therman as she does such a good "Ivy"! I will buy the parts and adapt them with a TON of silk leaves, easy and cheap. I've bought a few bits and pieces and have budgeted £50 including boots and corset, which is no mean feat let me tell you ;)
The other one is for a masquerade ball at new years eve, which is Belle's evening gown from Walt Disney's Beauty and the Beast. It is simply beautiful! I need to buy fabric and have had quote for gown to adapt which will cost at least £80 so fingers crossed I can do this in time for NYE as funds are drastically low.
Another costume I have been looking at and have taken steps toward is my favourite charcter from my favourite Scifi show, Kaylee from Firefly :) Now this costume will also cost £50 but the main part needed to be imported had a 50% shipping charge . . . so I have ordered two and plan to sell the 2nd completed costume to raise enough money to pay for both! Or least cover most of it, that should keep hubbys wallet happy :)
