About this Costume
Construction Details:
Dress: Found the fabric on fabric.com with help from a friend, it was a yarn cotton. I used a pattern and modified it for the white portion and sleeves. I pleated a long rectangle for the bottom half, with a fishnet underskirt. Tie is made of cotton and directly sewn to the dress. Has a zipper closure in the back.

Bodysuit: Unitard pattern, made from cotton spandex. Painted the stitches on with staples made from pvc vinyl.

Shoes and Bracelet: Black Platform Maryjanes with white pleather strips added. Foam, painted, and varnished.

Bag: Bought on ebay

Accessories: Belt was bought on ebay. Metal chain was sewn on, and a belt buckle was made from scupley. Tie pin, and earrings are made of Model Magic and painted. Neck screws are made from foamie and painted.

Make-up: Airbrush paint, mixed to be the right color. I painted my face arms and hands. Black lines are applied with liquid eyeliner. Regular make-up was applied on top of the airbrush make-up.
Personal Thoughts:
I fell in love with the design of these dolls years ago, and I was happy to find I wasn't the only one. So when my friend wanted to a group I was all over it. Even though the group didn't work out.
