About this Costume
Construction Details:
I ended up completely "blind" pattering the dress and had to remake it twice before I was happy/it could fit over my shoulders/chest w/o being huge everywhere else. I used heatnbond to put the dress designs on and then stitched over the shoulder ones to keep them down (and to hem the neckline and sleeves). I also ended up not using a pattern for the cape, so it came up not as wide as I wanted, but I didn't have the time or fabric (or patience) to completely remake it.
I made the garters by attaching ribbon to stockings, not realizing that I should have used elastic, and then attached them to a skinny stretch belt. I used a tutorial found on tumblr on making boots using pumps and stockings for the boots, and then attached the cuffs to the stockings. The gloves and boot-stockings were soaked in a red/brown mix to try and get them closer to the dress colour (since my several attempts at making gloves failed). I made the glove cuffs and attached them to the gloves and then hemmed them closer once the gloves were on. The armbands were made from a stretch suede that I soaked in a gold ink to give it a more saturated colour, and then roll hemmed the edges a few times for the bump. The gold pieces on the sash, and the necklace were made from the same material. I used a pink ribbon to do the lacing on the side of the dress, and made teh sash from the same pink fabric (my bow was a fake bow though). I last minute died the wig a more saturated green using FW ink and the dunk method. The hairpiece was made from Model Magic over a craft foam base, and painted gold with nail polish, and then a red rhinestone added.
