I am sooo excited about my costume this year....SHE-RA!!! YAY!
anyway, it took me a week to figure out what to be because i have no money to spend on silly things like a costume so i only had the fabric i had at home
i wanted so badly to have a Starfleet uniform! but then i found my prom dress that had been sitting in my closet for almost 4 years now, scrunched in a lonely ball, sad
this is my first reeealll recon (i usually just do minor changes for fit and stuff)
It only took me 2 days, yay. oh, and ps, dont worry, i didnt like my prom dress. it was 20 dollars 3 days before prom...it was all that was left. my mom was going to make it, but she had some personal stuff to deal with.
Here's how i did it! first i ripped the bodice from the skirts to take the 2 layers of tulle off. then i ripped out the zipper and flipped the bodice inside out so the outside of the dress was all the same fabric and put the zipper back in. then i hemmed it. pretty simple!
For all the gold stuff i just used some brown felt-backed vinyl i had laying around and spray painted it gold. then i used a lot of hot glue, lolz!
HERE IT IS!
..my arm bracer things are held on with packing tape, and the headband is held together with staples....classy, i know.
Here's a before pic:
and a little closer:
i spent most of the night running around trying to fly so my cape would look cool, lolz
ignore my stupid face..
i wore it to Freakfest on State St. in Madison...w00t! but only 2 people recognized me
one girl wanted her picture with me
YAY thanks for looking!!!
