Description

Well... This dress was like sand in the underwear to make! :))
I used a wedding dress I found in second hand as a basis. Please note that I love this dress except its bottom that I hate so I made some changes. If this disturbs you, I'm sorry.
There was lave with a fes pearls here and there on the basis dress. As there is someting in transparent effect on the model image, I sewed pearls following the lace EVERYWHERE on the bust. Then I doubled the bust with transparent shining white veil.
Then I made the sleeves (the puffed parts are sewed to mittens covered with taffeta and veil) and sewed them over the short sleeves of the basis dress.
After that I sewed kilometers of tulle of the pettycoat to get a more bluffing effetc. As it was not sufficient (it is obvious on the reference pic that the back of the dress is buffing more and still more on the sides) I created a stuffed belt (I wear it over the pettycoat) with cushions on the sides.
Next step was to arrange the train of the basis dress like a flower (or a shell) on the side. It took hours, to pin it the way I wanted and then sew it with liitle point here and there.
Finally I just had to sew an upper skirt in veil and fix it to the basis dress and the "flower/shell)
It seems easy, but it took me 10 days (with 5 hours sleep per day) to have it done in time for the con... Never again! XD

almathea This is the last costume my favourite partner will ever do. So we wanted to make a special act with these cosplays, something that is really a part of us. Something magic. Something perfect... Well, it is certainly not perfect, but it was magic indeed: we forgot who we are to drown in our characters. A moment of perfection. Here is the link towards the video of the act: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rskTW8Vtob8 Please let us know what you think about it.
