Well the 21st was the Harry Potter book 7 party. Thus I needed a costume fit for the occasion. I love Bellatrix Lestrange's outfit so I went with that.Finished
I was suffocating in my wig, kept inhaling plastic hair. It was a terrible experience. I had to have a wig because my hair is really short
The shirt was just a plain black shirt that I cut to death and laced back together with strips of vinal(sp?). I was planning to make a proper corset for this but my sewing machine decided to go on strike (turns out I threaded the machine wrong, I sence sabatage). In a fit of angst I made a cheap wannabe corset that's basically a long strip of vinal you lace up in the front and back.Attempt at back detail
I tried to make the necklace Bella wearshttp://www.curiousgood.com/?page_id=297
but i had no clay and very little time so I tried to make it out of tin foil. Strongly not recomended. I didnt know tin foil could get as sharp as it did. Thus I had no necklace.
I already had the skirt and it seemed apropriet (sp?)
I dont have any action shots because Alex hasnt emailed me pictures from the party yet. It's her birthday so Ill let her off easy.
Anyway, just wanted to share that with you all.
Oh and by the way, much to my great amusement I got interviewed at said party and ended up in the news paper. I'll post the link to the article when i find it again.
