So, I mentioned last time that I had a couple of projects lined up for the rest of the year – since it’s now officially Halloween season, I started working on my costume for this year, one I’ve been wanting to do for a very long time – Glinda the Good Witch of the North, whose costume in The Wizard of Oz is truly legendary.
Here are the rest of the pics from my photoshoot at the lighthouse (we took a loooot of photos; these are just my favorite picks.)
Warning – image heavy post!
I’m so excited to be making this post – here are the first photos of my wearing the Katherine Pierce gown this weekend, finally finished!
I’m making slow but steady progress on my green gown, in between other small projects.
I had to put this project on the shelf for a little while because of the convention and making costumes for that. The last time I blogged about this costume, I had finished constructing the bodice and was getting started on the skirt. I’m still a little frustrated with the skirt and it’s taking some time to work through the issues I’m having with it, but today I took some time to (almost) finish trimming the bodice.
My sister’s pick for Anime Central this year was Melody in her pink ballgown from The Little Mermaid 2… and since there’s nothing I love more than a big fluffy ballgown, I was excited to tackle this project, which I thought would be fairly easy. Rather, it should have been quite easy, but due to a combination of stress, extreme busyness, and tiredness and a lack of motivation on my part, this gown turned into a frustrating project that I had to slog through.
I slept most of the day today, but I did get up in the afternoon and make some good progress on my green gown’s bodice.
