I have been wanting to do Tinkerbell for years, and Finally I got her done. I am glad I waited as long as I did, for I don't believe it would have come out as good as it did if I had done it a few years ago. I made every single part of this costume, and had to tackle things I never had done before. There were two things I wanted in this costume that I don't see very often. I wanted to make sure the dress came down low in the back just like hers does, AND I didn't want the clear straps around my arms for her wings, and I am proud that I was able to accomplish that.
The Dress: The dress is just make out of cotton. I cut the dress low, and used a 7 inch zipper. Then I added 2 clear straps on my back to help keep
the dress on me.
The Wings: This is the first time I'd ever made wings, and I wasn't really sure what I was doing. For my first attempt I am very proud of myself. They are just wire and sheer fabric. Just bent the wire into the shape I wanted, then covered the wire with the fabric. I then sewed a medium sized snap to the center of the wings and one on each clear strap of the dress to attach them to the dress. They were the perfect size, and weren't to heavy that they pulled the straps down. Since my Tink is suppose to be Tink from Peterpan, not the new movies, I didn't need any veins or details on the wings, just the plain sheer fabric.
The shoes: I found a basic pair of flats, and then spray painted then the neon green. Then just hot glued on the pom pom. I want to add bells to the shoes.
I had pixie dust, but I somehow misplaced the container before I wore it at the con. ;-;
