Almost done with the first 25%. Tried to finish it today but couldn't. If I hadn't made a few scarves this week and been bothered by a cold, I probably would have done it. Also ended up cutting some fabric strips for my first quilt earlier.
Anyway, recently I got a whole bunch of patterns. Of the costume patterns I picked up, one was based on 'Brave' and two were based on 'Once Upon A Time'. Now combine this with the fall season starting up, a show on Syfy I've been watching called 'Heroes of Cosplay', and the fact that I look bad in white, I ended up wanting to make one of the outfits the evil queen wears on the show.
So, take this pattern:
Which when compared to the screenshots from the show, are pretty close to what she's actually wearing, and the wheels start turning.
View A which is what they made is the following outfit, complete with cape. (pants and bodice not included for any pattern.
I didn't find these until later but I crossed it off my list due to the fact that it is a lot of fabric, more so that even the others. View B is this fancy little number, which I love.
Now, upon sourcing this material online, I found a purple flocked taffeta with almost the same pattern, and is relatively cheap, but I would really love brocade (which is about six times as expensive per yard)
Even then, this is the one that seems to call to me.
She wears it a few times and the only difference seems to be the neck and lack of a hat. I like the black choker. Needless to say, I need to somehow pick up the following:
- 6 yards dark red velvet
- 1.5 yards embroidered netting preferable with sequins/rhinestones
- 1.5 yards black brocade
- 5 yards of black lining
- pink to go under the lace at the neck and sleeves
- lace for the cuffs
- 'leather' for the bias binding
- cameo brooch and a few other things
In addition, I already have a quilt I want to make, a dress I may want to wear to my 10 year reunion at Thanksgiving, a Halloween wall quilt and placemats, and various other items that I already have the materials to start. Plus I have school and looking for a job.
Thank you for somehow managing to read all my ramblings and make it this far.
