This costume was made in less than a day. I used a pattern for the bodice, but the skirt is just a long circle skirt. I'm going to keep this costume at 90% until I get a wig. I was going to use my real hair since it's long and brown but had a lapse in judgement and bleached my hair a week before the movie. Lots of damage, breakage, a trim and another dye job to cover up the orange ((yes, ORANGE)) and I pulled out my long black wig for the evening.
