So this year I decided to be the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland.
I tend to find patterns confusing and constricting so I made the costume up as I went along.The skirt was real easy to whip up... especially cause it just has an elastic waist. The top on the other hand was a pain. It's constructed out of an old bra, posterboard, tape (both painters and duct) and a butt-load of hot glue.
Here are its guts. (Keep in mind that this was my first attempt ever at anything resembling a corset)
In this one you can see the crown I made and the sparklyness of the fabric on the top. I wish I had gotten a picture of the back. It laces up with red ribbon. (disregard the ninja. haha)
Thanks for looking!!
