I'm really shocked there isn't a thread for "Wicked" yet so hey, might as well start one huh? Especially since I found a really amazing Wicked costuming blog that I'd like to share with people that might be interested!:
It's mostly Wicked-centric but it has a few other musical costumes featured on there as well!

I have wanted to make Elphie's Act II dress for years but just did not have an overlocker that would do the appropriate rolled hem, and I love Glinda's Bubble dress but my entire country seemed to sell out of the iridescent oraganza used. And stayed out of stock for a few years.
Well... I now have a Babylock and 8m of blue toned iridescent oraganza (aka glass organza, aka crystal organza*... all of which also apply to other kinds of organza...) And about 2kgs of sequins.
I also finally got to see Wicked this year, fan for five years only just saw it. Still better than with Phantom I was a fan for 8 years before I finally got to see it ;) Still need my passport to see shows within a decade of them being on B'Way/West End.
*Technically an organza made with monofilament threads and strips of interference plastic. If it doesn't reflect pink and yellow and blue and green it is not the right stuff ;)

Oooh I know..that dress is so beautiful. Complicated as all get out but gorgeous! It's a daunting project though..I was reading that the stage show dress itself weighed thirty pounds! I'd have to weightlift before I cosplayed it! ^_^
I know how you feel looking for great fabric..where I live there isn't much of a selection. I usually have to travel over an hour away or order it online. I hate ordering fabric online though because I love to touch it and see how it moves before I buy it.
I finally got to see the musical in August! Last time it was here it was only for a long weekend and tickets were REALLY expensive. (the ones the scalpers didn't get anyways) It was so exciting to finally see it live!
