20th March 2012: WIP I sewed the main part together today, and after testing it a bit (I danced >>;) I know what needs to be fixed a little better.
I'm not wearing everything I've made for it in these pictures, as I'm still sewing bits together.
- The part around my waist needs to be fixed, so I'm doing that now, so that it sits right and doesn't slip.
- I need to make the shorts. The ones I'm wearing in these pictures are too short, and not dyed the right colour. They were an experiment. It's pretty obvious. I'm considering an overlay too, but not sure.
- I need to put lace/ruffled parts down the front, but I'm scared to because I can't get it to sit right.
- Need to attach things to gold parts, beads, etc..
- Hat is WIP too.. I'm not happy with it. I need to iron it and see how things go. I've ran out of the purple fabric >_<
Lots of things to do, but it's a start.
Oh.. And boot covers are complete. ^_^
Pinkish-red coloured fabric is a lot better than it looks in these pictures. I only had time to quickly take these today.

This'll be awesome! ^w^ what day do you plan to do this so then we can do it together =3

Let me know when you're doing it and I'll do it on that day. Most of my costumes aren't with groups so I'm pretty much free.
Also also also.. When you work on your dragon emblem thing, would you mind trading pictures? I need to make one too, and I'll try and make it as accurate as possible, but I'm not sure how to do it yet.

I'm not sure what day I'll let you know nearer the time =) Yeah I can do that I'll probably start work on it during February. With the shorts, what we're doing is having it all one colour but over the top having a shiny dot meshing of a similar colour =3

Like Catnip said, we're putting a mesh with shiny sequins over the top for ours, but we've got bloomers rather than the shorts...
I'm gonna nosey, but have you had any luck in finding beads for head ware? I'm rather struggling to find the correct type and I'm wondering if you've had any luck
catnip_Dream - 20th March 2012
Its looking so good =D What day shall we do this on?
Drachryn - 20th March 2012
The day is up to you. ^^ I'm not in any other groups, so my schedule is free.
