I wanted this costume to be as ridiculous as possible. I mean..its a man..in a ballgown..with horrible makeup. Tamaki is in another one of his costumes and that is what I wanted to make it look like. I didn't take this seriously at all.
I found that amazing pink taffeta for the skirt for $3 a yard. I chose a bright pink knit for the bodice and petals. I had the gold trim laying around in my house from when Walmart had put all its trims on clearance. I chose a light pink sheer and a sparkly wrinkle sheer for the butt bow. I had to handsewn all the gold trim on and it took like a yard of tulle in each sleeve to make them poof out like that.
I have very little experience making dresses because I usually cosplay boys in..well boy clothing. So this was quite the undertaking. But I am fairly proud of how it turned out.
