27th October 2011: Edited Dress/Apron Here I've edited my dress for this upcoming expo. I know it's doesn't look like much but I've shortened the straps so they no longer fall down! *yay*! And then I christened my new sewing machine by pinning and hemming up the dress. I only hemmed it 3" shorter than it was before as it was already an alright length I just wanted it to be more midcalf then ankle. So then I had to hem the apron and I decided to do this 9" shorter so it looked alright. And I've obviously given it an iron xD I'm worrying because I have no idea where my bow is so I'm gonna hunt high and low for it!
9th July 2011: LFCC Today! I went to LFCC today as Belle and it was amazing! All the other Disney group members were going in the masquerade and I was allowed to join them :D I made it clear I was not to be judged as my costume was made so they allowed me on ^_^ I also got to meet Tab (KhaosKreator) who's making my Gold Belle dress for October! :D I loved being in the Disney group so much and felt so smiley all day ^_^ I can't wait to see piccies of us all together! eep!
19th June 2011: Semi-Complete Okay! So Technically it's complete. EXCEPT. My shoes are black not brown and it's a little big for me, so I need to cut and sew the straps on the dress so they don't fall down and the cut of the dress sits on me better. I'm thinking of redying my hair brown soon so I may use my real hair instead of the wig because it doesn't sit too good on my head (I don't think) but yeah! Despite the need to edit the straps this is pretty much complete! =]
4th June 2011: Wig Styled So I've had a go styling the wig. I want the fringe to be a more up but overall I'm pleased with it :D I split the long hair into three bits and then crossed them over as if I were going to plait it but then just tied it up like normal. I'll probably have to redo it closer to the time but I'm pleased with my first attempt at styling a wig :D
15th May 2011: Wig! I think it's a bit dark but I think the style looks just like how Belle has it when it's down :B I'll be using a wig head (which I've finally bought! Hooray!) to style it with the bow when it arrives with the outfit :D I wanna try and get the fringe to do what Belle's does where it has a bit of volume I just gotta work out how >.<
