The Nightmare Before Christmas
Last Updated: 05-30-2012
Sally is one of my favorite characters, especially how she is portrayed at the Disney Parks. I have big plans for this cosplay, and I hope it turns out to be everything I'm dreaming of! I felt like that because she is a ragdoll, her dress would be composed of many different types and textures of fabrics. Luckily, I was given some pretty awesome fabrics (to use for the costumes I am making for a school play, but I'm taking the liberty of using bits and pieces of them for Sally) that are going to give a really neat effect to the overall look of the costume. I plan to knit her socks myself to add my trademark knitted element to the costume. I also plan to make the wig myself out of yarn, which should be pretty sweet. ;-)
4/4/11- Just a little update here for anyone who may see it. I've been working really hard on a lot of costumes this week (mainly out of necessity for commission, but I have also been inspired to work on a few of my own things!) So, I pulled out some of the supplies I have gathered for Sally and got to work. :) I put together the black/pink striped panel on the front of the dress as well as the yellow polka-dotted patch that goes on it, and cut out (most, I think I forgot 1 or 2 ^.^) of the black velveteen circles for the teal panels. I almost heat-n-bonded them on until I realized that I hadn't made the stripes yet! Yikes! XD
10/1/11: OMG guys, she's almost finished!! I went to Walmart last night and got the shoes (which I LOVE), new lipstick, eyelashes (which I may or may not replace), and a white eyeliner pencil. I am currently working on making the wig from yarn, and will soon be knitting the socks! The "skin" is almost finished; I just have to draw on the seams and stitch the stitches! ^.^ The last thing I have to buy is the face paint, which I am still trying to decide on... Oh, and I am going to shorten the dress a few inches (from the shoulder seams) because I made it way too long. I AM SO EXCITED FOR HALLOWEEN!
