Someone suggested doing a Magna Carta group for the sheer challenge of it. We all picked out pretty characters and thought "that would be fun"! Then an idea for a skit came about...and it turns out Serina is pretty important to the game plot.
I love how it came out! I still have more painting to do, but it's so pretty. The fabric is silk charmeuse, it feels so nice to wear. Everything was self-patterned, my husband made the geta and necklace doo-dad. My friend Kat cut the wig for me. And many, many people held my hand and convinced me that I could do this.
Special thanks to Celesdragon for sewing me into the top, and for double-sided tape.
The flower is made of foamies. We have big rolls of foamie on hand because my hubby uses them for props all the time. I worked with the curl of the roll, and didn't really do anything special to achieve it! Sorry!
