About this Costume
Construction Details:
This was pretty much a free costume, as I happened to have the dress fabric already!
I tried to draft this as a doric chiton, which is what Claire Hummel said she did. But unfortunately, chitons don't look that flattering in reality so I cheated here and there. Shhhh....!
The diamonds were stamped on. I abused the Greek-key stitch on my machine to finish edges and to go over the gold ribbons.
The beads were annoying: they were originally green but wouldn't take to acrylic paint, so I had to spray paint them all gold and THEN paint over them. Can't just make them in the color I need, eh, Michael's?!
Personal Thoughts:
I was waiting/hoping that Claire would do Megara in this series and I freaked out when she posted her! I actually started construction on this the day after she posted it...I love Megara that much.

There's a few things I'd like to fix before I wear this again. Mainly having the right wig (it arrived while I was AT the con, augh) and fixing the length of the skirt and overall fit.
