About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- 80% of the costume costs were in the beaded straps themselves. So many trial and errors to get it right. You wouldn't think so but it is extremely hard getting those balls at the right size and making them look like smooth pearls. >__< In the end I tried wooden balls and smooth styofoam balls which all didn't work. I resorted to molding each one by hand with model magic but at that point I didn't have enough time for them to dry so it wasn't as perfect as I'd like. I'm currently in the process or redoing those straps. The straps were such a time consuming process. D: I was so glad the costume turned out well. The dress and everything was all hand-sewn with love and care~ <3 The balls for the shoes and hair ornaments are xmas ornaments I found at the 99cent store~ <3 I need to somehow harden them though since they break easily. (I'm clumsy T^T) More images of our K-ON! Photoshoots can be found here: http://www.acparadise.com/acs/display.php?c=2713 http://www.acparadise.com/acs/display.php?c=2697
