I'd totally be down for posting my progress, except I'm going to be gone for the next four months with no access to internet, and most of which I won't have access to crafting supplies... Ah, woe, especially since I plan on having a fairly accessory rich costume. Nymla's voodoo princess
really inspired me, so this year I plan on going as a which doctoress. I really want to have the same scrappy, wild look that she has, but keep it my own. I just bought a bunch of bone beads and am in the midst of teaching myself to macrame, so I'm already on my way. My one friend also said he would give me some sheep bones too.
Things to do:
~leather underbust corset, canvas side panels with painted/embroidered accents and runes
~macrame belt with hip accent
~macrame belt with bottle/trinket holder
~2 painted leather panels with beaded fringe
~furry leg/arm wraps
~multitude of necklaces, bracelets, strings to wrap on arms.
~undershirt, crisscross top
~some sort of short/gathered skirt for under panels; still trying to figure this out.
Phew! So not much to do construction wise; the only thing that requires any real thought is the corset. The rest I want to keep simple and rough. My time is mostly going to be sucked up in the details, but even if I'm running short on time come October, I can make most of these things in class!
