11  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / I present Her Royal Highness ... Princess Peach! on: November 08, 2011 02:46:55 PM


I was going for a more realistic interpretation of the Smashbrothers detailed version of Her Highness. It consists of a corset top (which was a nightmare to make, since it's got closed shoulders, sleeves, and a partially closed back), a very tiered underskirt, an overskirt, and an over-bustle. And crap tons of lace!

I had to alter a lot of that design so it'd look better on a perfectly plump girl like me! I also had make her crazy blue earrings, chest jewel, and tiara out of sculpey but my cousin dropped the box they were in (for safekeeping?) and broke them. Sadly I never got a pic of them. Curses! But I did find some jewelry at WalMart that was the perfect color I was going for!! So I think it works.

Anyway, moving on!

I drafted my own patterns. That's right, didn't use a single pattern. Used my measurements and some basic (ish?) math to construct this costume. I took some old brown shoes, scuffed 'em, painted them pink, and frosted them with some craft glitter and glitter glue. They were awesome to dance in!

My biggest problem was the boning. It ended up buckling (curvy girls, do ya feel me?) so I removed it all last weekend. Sadly, no pics of that. But I get to wear the dress as the accompanist for my community's "Annie Get Your Gun" so maybe I'll edit and share some more goodies! Till then, enjoy!

So, I spent a good chunk of my birthday working on part of Aisy's stuff! I got materials for two things, got started on one, and I'm hoping to finish this particular stuff/s by Saturday. And on Saturday I'll get materials for another thing! Yay progress!!!

I just got home from a roadtrip. And I have to learn 300 pages of sheet music in 2 weeks. And I have to construct a 'ballgown' for my Halloween costume (that Bernina is MINE!! XD). And Thursday is my day off to go buy more materials for my awesome partner's stuff. Which is coincidentally, my birthday! Okay, no coincidence, I requested it off, but ya know! I don't think my schedule has ever been this gloriously full!!

I'm sooo excited! I just woke up and ran to my computer, like a kid on Christmas. But alas, no partner under the e-Tree yet!  It's okay, though, I can wait!!
