3 months of work well paid off! SQUEEEEEEEEEEEE! I love this dress soooo much!~ And it was one of the most challenging sewing pieces I have ever done.
I originally wanted to make Ashe's wedding dress like a year ago... I bought the fabric and everything! Once I had started cutting out the dresses shape, I had then realized how difficult this cosplay really was... I ended up giving up! DUE TO FUSTERATION!!! I knew I was in big trouble.. as I had THOUGHT I had destroyed it, by cutting it all wrong, and I couldn't fix what I had already cut... So out of sadness thinking I wrecked my new fabric and wasted my money, I threw the unfinished dress into the very back of my drawers.... and did not touch it again till a year later... I was 1 year into cosplaying then. >>;;; Give me some credit for trying a difficult piece at least lol. But now that I am more leveled up on sewing, I figured out that I could fix it up after all! I'm so happy that I was able to make this dress finally! A dress that I wanted to do last year, hahaha. *twirls around the room all happy!!* XD
I used NO pattern to make this nightmare dress. :x I basically wrapped the fabric around myself, and cut it all on me whilst I was wearing it!! :x (I had no dressform) When I had finished all that, I lined it all after.
All the armor is made from craftfoam and cereal boxes (MY FAV THINGS TO USE!!) I cut out close to around 1,000 pieces of armor. o____o It was extremely time consuming, it was almost torture lol. (a little bit over a week of work) (THE DRESS WAS STILL MORE OF A NIGHTMARE THOUGH) Dx
I also used fabric paint by hand all along the bottom of the dress, all free handed. that took about 3 days of work?
Total cost of this costume was around $80. some of the things I bought for her I didn't even use all up.
Oh... I love this dress so much... I def want to wear it again (MAYBE I'LL HAVE A RASLER BY THEN!! <33 SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) 8DDDDD
