So I made this costume because I've been dying to cosplay as her for a while and just never had the confidence to go for it until now. So I just draped everything and went from there. There is a lot of hand sewing done here for the details. I want to wear it the next convention I go to, though I might only wear it for a little while because I'm terrified of possible wardrobe malfunctions.
I also made a little jabba bag to carry around with me so I can have my cell phone and meds on me at all times. his mouth opens a little extra to one side just because I knew I'd end up needing a big opening in the bag to stuff whatever in it.
So what do you think? Did I do a decent job? Also, I started this costume on wednesday of this week, finished it on thursday and today is friday and I made the Jabba bag today. So considering that time frame, I think I did a pretty decent job.
So about a week and a half ago, my sister decided she wanted me to make her a dress for her homecoming dance... The dance is tonight. So I took her measurements and had her find a dress she liked online so I could make her one. She picked a short poofy one with the midsection exposed and told me what she wanted changed on it and what she wanted to keep. I said alright and got to work on making the pattern. There were a lot of twerks that needed working out: from having to take it in at the waist, to have to add more fabric to the back so it covered a little more, to adding in some boning. But all in all I think it came out very nicely. Here's the dress hanging up:
Okay, so my sister wants me to make her a homecoming dress for her dance. http://www.queeniedress.com/product/short-mini-chiffon-a-line-halter-sleeveless-homecoming-dress She basically wants this. But I'm a little weary about how to go about the open backed dress while still giving her support and making sure everything stays up and inplace. I've never done a low back dress like this before and I was wondering if anyone had any advice or tips or suggestions on how to tackle this? Her dance is in a week and I need to get it finished before then! Thanks in advance for your help!
