The most difficult part of this costume was making the jacket and getting all the appropriate parts to line up correctly. My favorite part is the embroidered under-skirt. It's not exactly what Sherrice wears but it's the closest thing I thought of that existed in the real world as Sherrice's is actually a much lighter purple.
The most aggravating part of the costume was making and re-making and re-making... etc the hairclip. Each time I used clay and something or another kept going wrong, mostly the clay burned or bubbled and became unusable. In the end I wound up with two that I use interchangeably. One is a little more pointed and is painted yellow and white and coated with several layers of gloss. The other is a bit smaller, a little rounder and made of sparkly white and gold clay.
The half bootcovers took a while to figure out but I think they give off the slouchy look pretty well.
