Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt
Last Updated: 05-28-2011
Woo first Stocking costume! Quite a few parts of this costume happened to just fall into my lap over the course of a week, but there were a few setbacks.
The wig is two different wigs stacked on top of each other. They're both from Lucaille on TaoBao, and the colors are perfect! The only problem is that they tangle pretty badly.
The blazer was my second try. The original one I bought was dark gray, but it was the perfect shape and size. I tried dying it, but the dye came out in the dryer (on a 20 minutes cycle without heat, wtf) because it was polyester. So the second blazer had to do. The buttons are actually from the first blazer, but there was only one button hole so one of them is just sewn on with a snap underneath.
The socks are from Sock Dreams. Not sure about the color, they look good in pics but are super dark in person. But they fit well, they're just huge and tend to fall down. I'm tempted to buy the same socks in blackxwhite and try dying them a brighter blue, so we'll see if that happens.
I already owned the blouse, the beret, and the shoes. The tie is my mom's boyfriend's who let me borrow it.
I made the skirt, since I actually make lolita clothes it was super easy. The petticoat was from eBay, it's a Leg Avenue one that's super short yet poofy.
