Will consider other offers if they are reasonable. This costume has been worn twice, and is in very good shape. It is meant to fit a size M/L. The bustier is a size 36 B, and the skirt if free, so it can fit a wide range of bodies. Complete costume including: Purple Wig Hair Heart Headband Candy Covered Bustier Satin Panel Skirt Pink Stockings Whipped Cream Ring Faux Candy Necklace Gum Drop Bangle (Shoes not included)
- Construction Details:
The white bustier was purchased online, but all of the embellishments were sewn on by hand to ensure proper stretch. The corset features 12+ hours worth of hand beading , seed beading, as well as custom model magic beads. The hip candies were stuffed with styrofoam and poly-fill. The skirt is a basic circle skirt sewn out of different color satins. Necklace, ring and bracelet were made using model magic, cellophane and a few hand picked beads. For the headband hair was wrapped around a paper mache' heart. The heart and gems were attached to a purple headband.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I adored the costume in Katy's music video and when a friend proposed a "pop star" cosplay group I knew I had to make this one. I didn't realize how much work would go into making it, but I adore how it turned out (except for the wig). And aside from the shoes it is pretty comfortable to wear. Hopefully I will get plenty of wear out of this one!
- How was the wig colored?
- Styling Notes
- Tried my dangest to put a curl in the bangs and at the bottoms, but even after boiling water and leaving curlers in for 2 days it was still straight. Don't know what to say... at least the color was right.
