About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Wow fuck this costume. I was really gung ho about it when I first started, spent AGES looking for the perfect lace (which I found! it has hearts on it ;3;) and getting off white fabric for my skirt and top, and white fabric for the bra, and lace, and just put a lot of time into it. Added some model magic to my heel to make it thicker, and painted the shoes white and tan (they were originally blue), got sheer white stockings & seam ripped off the original lace and replaced it with the heart lace, and FUCK THAT WIG. I struggled with it a lot but in the end I'm really happy with how it turned out. I got a little WAH MY WIG IS THE WRONG COLOR but then realized they kind of draw her hair different colors depending on the image.
The top was a pain in the ass, and it's boned in the places boning shows through on her figure (back seams, and front seams). I sort of phoned in the boob cups since at that point I'd been struggling with the stupid thing for half a day (and working on the costume since NYCC) and I was just DONE, but in the end I don't think it looked too bad. The Bra was a super mega push up bra that I covered in pure white spandex and hand sewed lace onto~ I also replaced the straps on the bra with appropriate lace.
Anyway, FUCK THIS COSTUME.
- Personal Thoughts:
getting to wear this with Skye & Cole was perfect because THEY ARE PERFECT AND UBUBUBUUUUU♥♥♥♥ Also Skye is a superhero, and saved the day when the rest of our Catherine group dropped out.
seriously though they look like Katherine & Vincent it's kind of ridiculous. And thank you so much Carroll for doing a billion shoots with me over the course of the weekend, and taking pictures so late at night!
