I really need help trying to make a top like this
Any Advice would help. And yes i already messages the person with no reply
I think the easiest route would be covering up a strapless bra?
I'm pretty horrible when it comes to strapless tops so can't really help ><
Although looking more closely at her photos she does have straps

This Simplicity pattern (http://www.simplicity.com/p-2230-costumes.aspx) might provide the basic size and shape. You will probably need to change the sleeves as well. But like LKD mentioned, you may want to cut out the pattern that fits over a strapless bra.

I know that Jasmine, for her top I believe she covered a bra that had clear straps and added the sleeves. I think she went with the clear straps to avoid any "wardrobe malfunctions" and for better cleavage. Pretty much anything I've ever made that was strapless has had a cheap strapless bra for a base. I either sew or glue the fabric to cover. Sew it if you want to be able to use the bra again, glue it if you don't care. I've done this for Ayane (DOA) and Callisto from Xena, just to name a couple off the top of my head.

There is also this pattern (http://www.simplicity.com/p-2135-costumes.aspx) that would work well. It would have more seams than the one you linked to, as I am pretty sure she just covered a bra like other posters supposed.

Going by the theme park version: http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2221/2099070305_1af8976c0f.jpg
-There's a bra underneath as a foundation that's flesh tone in color.
-The straps (not clear) are then covered with hand-stitched clear gems.
-The "Base fabric" is a clear blue with sequin swirls, which is then covered with a sheer blue fabric of the same color.
-The jewels at the base are comprised of a hand-sewn strip with plastic dangles and sequins that snaps off to allow easy wash of the top.
-There's a strip of gold sequined trim that goes along the top of the bra and the sleeves and also connects the sleeves to the bra.
-The sleeves are done with the same fabric covering and are two cotton filled circles stacked on top of one another with a covered elastic band inside to grip to the arm.
-The gem in the center is just a big blue plastic one with some other gems adhered around it.
Her pants however, are annoying, but only because of the waist.
