It just might be cold  Grin

There might be kind of a wordy description following, if you're just here for the pictures just skip it Cheesy

So the annual Omnia fairyball is this sunday, and with the dresscode (fairy like, sexy or just Omnia) I didn't have anything appropriate to wear. Looking trough my piles of fabric didn't help either. Not heaving the funds to go and buy some new fabrics I just couldn't manage to put a nice color combination together.
I found this piece of beautiful fabric I got from my aunt. It had been in the huge bag of scraps and I didn't know it was this big! Soon the idea of my firefairy was born.

Since I went trough a kind of a rough time I didn't have any of my patterns on hand; I just scribbled some stuff down and started cutting. Adjusting some piece while on the go. When I finished the dress I decided I needed wings to emphasize the fact that we were indeed dealing with a fairy here.
I also made myself a pair of armwarmers with some black fleece in it, to match my stockings, A pair of legwarmers and a hairband.

So I used a tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6YAUxeopgNw
To make wings:

And just for the hell of it Smiley

More pictures coming soon, I'm also planning on making a little bag, a wand and a mask so I can take the costume to the summer faires.

Comments en critics very much appreciated!

Great job on the outfit! Those wings are stunning and I love that last action shot; it looks like you might take off and fly somewhere nice and warm Cheesy Excellent work babes! x

When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.
