Cyd Charisse progress

From left to right: finished belt, a finished skirt panel, and two skirt panels in various stages of completion.

It's the green dress she wears in the movie "Singin' in the Rain", here:

The dress involves about 34 beaded and sequined panels. Needless to say I was beading every moment I could get, mostly while watching Turner Classic Movies (appropriately, I think).

The 3mm sequins I got were a bit too transparent so I layered opaque metallic 2.5mm ones underneath.

Wait.. her from Singing in the Rain?!?! You just did.
I figured that's what it was as soon as I saw her name on the photo, I absolutely cannot wait to see this done!

You'd better be smoking a bitch stick

Your work has always been superb! I have no doubts that it will turn out amazing. Now all you got to do is dance with your Gene Kelly (J/K)

Amazing, keep up the hard work! Dearly departed, she was my favorite in the movie, so perfectly sinful with insane control and ability. I'm so glad to see someone cosplaying her! Keep up the good work, it looks great so far!
