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.
- Styling Notes
- Used a sewing machine to create white wefted extensions from loose ones. Cut small pieces and glued them to the wefts on the black wig.
- Wig Review
- I'm going to add some more white highlights when I get the chance.
