27th January 2012: Meh I'm not too confident about this still because I look huge. The top half needs taken in a little bit and it's not zipped up at the back because I couldn't quite reach with one hand. I'll definitely need some help. I'm undecided if want to go for the slim look of the movie or invest in a smaller hoop skirt or something. Any advice?
24th December 2011: Before Styling This wig came through the post earlier today, talk about good timing. Just in time fo Christmas haha. It's a lovely wig and I love the colour, even though the wig wasn't what I was really expecting, you know? I have no idea where on earth I would start with this so I'm going to look up how to do stuff before I start cutting. I'm still not very good at styling wigs so I imagine that this will be a little difficult for me. Wish me luck!
19th December 2011: Shoes Oh yeah these little bad boys came today. They're slightly too big but it's nothing that can't easily be fixed. All I need to do with these is break into them as they currently hurt a lot.
17th December 2011: Dress I've spoken to the commissioner and we've opted to go for cotton which whilst I'm not totally happy with, it looks a lot better than the shiny fabric they were intending to use. I've had a look at the swatches too and picekd which colours I think will look best on the dress. Even if I've only had a limited control on what this will turn out like I'm satisfied.
13th December 2011: Wig and Shoes Bought the wig and a nice pair of shoes for this today! As I'm going for the blue dress the shoes are blue (of course) and TheMagicalLucy helped me pick a lovely wig. It needs some styling but I'm certain I can work with it!
