KitaCon 2010

28th December 2009: ....go! bra 2.0 is done. The first attempt look really weird, so for the second attempt I added wire at the bottom (the big v-shaped bit) which is open enough to be hidden by the dress and not show at the opening. this means my boobs looks almost normal in it! (before they were being pulled a a very strange angle). I also remade the crescents without wire (the first attempt with wire was really digging in) so these are just made from buckram and black fabric, with a v shaped piece of covered wire attached either side of each cup (kinda like the bit at the bottom, only at the top and a bit smaller).

I started the dress yesterday, I bought a butterick pattern as they are more adjustable for taller (and shorter) ladies after cutting out the main pieces I realised how obvious the shapes were and am now kicking myself slightly that I bought a pattern :s oh well, it has patterns for a few other styles, so thats something I suppose.

I currently now have a very long purple slightly curvy tube. I have pinned together the sides and pinned in the zip, but I need to add the front and back darts to give it a little more shape. I had to add an extra 2" to the top (as it stopped halfway over my bust) and it needed a little extra height for the crescents, an extra 2" around the waist and then an extra 4" on the main drop. It's designed for 5'6" and I'm 5'10 but in 4" heels so I had to add and extra 8 inches to the thing. add to that the flare at the bottom on the floor, and it's rather loooong! 70" or 176cm to metric people! which is almost my height! But then again Beryl is 6"2 so it's all in proportion!!

21st December 2009: ready...steady... Fabric bought, I have made an attempt at the bra but it looked crap, so I'll be re-making this over the holidays too.

I bought some shoes for a party which will work nicely with this, they are black satin peep toe shoes with a concealed platform, so they should put me up to a nice 6'2 ish!!

I'm hoping to have this done by the new year. I have 12 days off from work and the sewing parts are really easy, the accessories will take a little longer, but only because they need to be crafted, dry, prime, dry, paint, dry varnish and dry!

10th November 2009: ebay time Ear tips ordered from the states. Eyelashes and nails on order from Hong Kong. Air dough received from the UK already to make accessories. Need to source fabric and comfy shoes.
I've discovered she's meant to be 6'2"!!! so I'm going to wear heels so I'm a little taller (yes I know the irony of me being to short for a character...)
I've found a great lipstick, just need to try and work out what colour her eyes actually are...

5th November 2009: wig I have the wig, the pics don't show the colour very well but it's a really nice shade! It's already got some good waves in it, I just need to add some serious volume!!
