thanks so much everyone!

You've been busy, but you've done fine!!!
thank you! i'm glad you didn't mind waiting!

Oh boy!
You should visit Stockholm in August and show off that beautimous outfit a second time.

maybe one day! pride here isn't until august too, it's later than most places. and pride in vancouver is expensive enough, i'll never make it to stockholm!

wow you should post some kind of tutorial for that wig, it is so cute!!

thanks! i thought about trying to take some pictures of the inside to show how i made it, but they didn't really turn out. i'm not so sure i could manage to do it again for the tutorial!

AAAH! I love it. Its freakin adorable. I was hoping you'd enter because I knew you'd make something fabulous Grin

aw, thanks hawaiilove! that's awesome! i'm super impressed with the stuff you made too, i've just been too busy sewing all weekend to comment on any of them!

wow that is amazing! I am so impressed with your dying the fabrics! They look fabulous! I want to dye some things but am afraid to do it!

oh, just go for it! i love dying stuff. and i love dying slips, because you end up with several shades of colour, each lace dyes differently. i dye a lot of trims too.

the wig reminds me of the rainbow brite wig my mom made me out of yarn when I was three.

i actually have a half finished rainbow brite wig from a few halloweens ago that i was making out of yellow polar fleece, and now that i've done this, i'm really tempted to start all over with yarn!

Fantastic job! I especially love how the wig turned out... stunning colors!

The polkadot petticoat is gorgeous as well.

Uh, this rocks!  And, don't call me stupid, but what's "pride"?  Uh, that sounded ultra-stupid, but you know what I mean.

i realized i never replied to this - sorry!

pride is gay pride/queer pride, whatever. it happens in lots of major cities during the summer. the bigest event (at least for the straight people who come to watch) is the pride parade, though it's about my least favourite part, it's extremely commercialized here and is literally hours long, i always get heat stroke! there's also lots of other activities going on before and after it, like various cultural events and parties. and in my city, we have the queer film festival that starts right after pride, so it seems like pride goes on for quite a while!

and the wig took some figuring, and i think it took me about 8-10 hours to do.

maybe one day i'll do a tutorial!
