Ah! My Goddess!
Last Updated: 06-07-2013
By the third episode I knew I wanted to make Belldandy. That hair, those wings, that dress... oh yessss. Besides, I'm tired of being dark, pissy, magic girls!
I'm doing a sort of personalized variation on her blue goddess robes, mostly to make it more grand and to challenge myself. Hoorah!
White dress: White linen with white glitter tulle overlay. Nothing too fancy. ($20)
Blue over dress: A sort of textured athletic fabric with a gold lace trim. The "sleeves" are fabric covered interfacing with more tulle and linen underneath it for the long sleeves. ($40)
Wings: Aluminum wire, bailing wire, epoxy, and a lot of patience and bruised hands. I've made three frames so far that have broken due to trying out different techniques, but I'm sure the fourth frame will be the winner :) After the frame is made, I can cover the wire in felt and glue feathers on it. The wings are designed to sit between my body and a corset and take up my entire back, which secures them to my body and prevents shifting. Pics to come later! So far, this sucker has been pretty expensive. ($225)
Wig: A long wig with styles bangs and wig clips sewn into the front. The long wig is tied into a loose ponytail that sits at the nape of my neck. I have a looooong ponytail clip in that sits on top of my head and covers the low ponytail, finished off with a lavender headscarf. ($97)
As of 3/21, I had to order more feathers because my wings aren't covered yet -___-
As of 3/15 and with only two weeks left til I wear it for the first time at a con, I only have to buy the jewelry and finish the wings :)
