13th August 2012: Wings mk 2 So after a complete balls-up where the cellophant wouldn't fuse, the spray glue was useless, and the harness failed completely, I', on version two of the wings.
These are green cellophane and wire sandwiched between sticky-back film. And this time I've made them as a single piece, and attached them to a small harness (based on a plastic tub lid!). Detailling is going well, and the next step is to attach the shoulder straps with better placing, and cover the messy bits of the harness with black material.
9th May 2012: Ch-ch-changes Looks like seperates are a better idea than a jumpsuit. They seem out of fashion at the moment. Still trying to decide between loose wide-legged trousers and flares. I like the lines of a snug thigh and flares, but loose wide trousers would resemble a long skirt when at rest an is a bit more regal.
I've also made newspaper templates for my wings. Progress is moving slowly, but it's constant :)
26th April 2012: Belts, corsets and sashes The design of Chrysalis's carapace thingy is the part I'm having difficulty with right now. I had originally though of some sort of bodice or underbust corset. Apart from being beyond my sewing skills, I'm not sure its the best idea after all.
Looking at the screenshots again, it looks like it's held on by a sash. So maybe a wide sash belt with a bow/knot either on the hip or the back?
Or what about a hip scarf, like belly dancers wear?
