Yes I will be sure to take pictures when wearing the costume! Any suggestions of what I can add to my wig? I was thinking a model ship on top?  I am gluing on some birds tonight (I got a pack of white doves at hobby lobby and painted them pink with silver glitter), and maybe some bows. I really want to deck the wig out!


This is what it looks like right now:

That looks so great! And it definitely has a more classy quality than the ones that costume sites sell.

I'm looking to send my Step-Sister's Choice quilt to a new home.  If you're interested in swapping for fabric/scrapbooking supplies, send me a PM.

That looks stunning!

A tip for ghetto panniers if you are interested: Safety pin two empty milk jugs under one layer of your petticoat using scraps of fabric for the horizontal skirt period look.
