LKD- I sure did! I actually made the comment "wasn't LKD going to do this dress" when I saw it. Today was unproductive since I spent it either with the doctor or sleeping, so I'll try to get those pictures to you tomorrow.
And yes, Jill was pretty excited XD. She made me skip through the entire book just so we could see that page.

Glow- I decided to go with the Casa satin that I already had. Still not sure if I should paint the bottom two shapes pink or not. And you're welcome- I'm glad that you can use it. Don't worry about the size either- I had to resize mine several times.

Cookie- eh, I just call it that because there's virtually nothing to do except go to the beach or botanical parks. I can scan some of the pictures for you if you want- one of the main reasons for getting the book was the pictures.

Sasha- SAME HERE! On both the so many cosplays and for this weekend! Astrid should be challenging, so maybe we can start breaking it down this weekend?
Lucky! I'd go with a Belle-themed dress if you have the time to make it.

Titinuix- Since I'm about to start the pink animated dress, would you like me to post patterns and tips for you as I work on it? Sort of like a guide that will give you ideas in case you get stuck.

Nessa- Thanks! I'll be sure to do that if I do end up using your designs.

Furie- Hey, I've heard great things about bedsheets, so it works. I've considered making things out of bedsheets too.

livvy- WOW! Long time, no see. Great to hear that you're doing well and I might be at Dragon*con this year. I can't wait to see your slave Jasmine outfit ^_^

Spica- That should be interesting to see. I never actually saw the movie, but I saw pictures on magicalscreencaps.

Sooo... guess who just named a necklace set "Chameleon"? I kinda had to. It's primarily green, but turns all the pretty colours Pascal does...http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...36389953 2291

Hm...Been trying to think what'd be good though.



Friend said that Chinese brocade would make it look less plain and more towards how most Chinese things would look? Though would it be a good idea? I've seen Mulan outfits that were just satin, casa satin and the like. But they've looked really plain. But yeah. XD Think brocade would look better? :3 Less plain?

Tangled hoodie fans! Would you prefer a 3/4 sleeve for character likeness or a full-length sleeve for warmth? Designing, designing....

I don't have very many planned actually. A DC one, a Marvel one, a cannon Disney one, and three non-cannon Disney ones. (all Tiana) If you want to do the pin-up dress group, the swimsuit one or both, you're more than welcome. As far as the dresses are considered, I'm looking at these kind: http://www.pinupgirlclothing.com/retrodresses.html

Want in? Anyone else?

Nessa- That's really pretty! I like all the colors in it. Full length sleeves for warmth sounds better. I think the 3/4 sleeves would be awkward on a fleece hoodie, but that's just me.

Spica- Go with brocades, it will definitely add more detail/uniqueness and look more Chinese. You might also want to look at some of the "simply silky prints" that JoAnns carries. I know I found one recently that had cherry blossoms on it. Probably wouldn't work for this outfit, but might for others.

Ama- Since I'm looking at D*Con this year, I might join the pin-up princess one as Jasmine, Mulan, Rapunzel, or even Meg. Maybe the swimsuit one as Meg or Sil, but I'm not sure if I would be comfortable running around the crowds in a bathing suit. Is there a pool that we can shoot by?

Made it to JoAnns today. Turns out the sweatshirt fleece I had in mind for Toothless is $13, but lucky me just got a bunch of 50% coupons. So excited for all the fabric I'm going to stock up on with them.

@Beni: We'll be shooting by a pool, of course. We'll walking around for the pin-up shoot and stop at a couple of places for pics.

We got a prince, too! A beau of a friend of mine on another forum. He'll be our Shang!

LKD- with the button issue in the back you could try a faux route. Use an invisible zipper on the seem next to the buttons. you're hair sould cover the zipper pull at the neck and if it doesn't you could fudge a little overlap of your material with a hook and eye closure. Then all you have to do is sew the buttons on and you don't have to make holes or anything. I havn't learned to put one in yet, but my mom will only use invisible zippers because she says they are easier to put in than regular ones. You do need a seperate foot for your machine but most sewing stores carry one.

Spica- I would definetly suggest brocade for Mulan. A nice dragon pattern would look good and I wouldn't stress too much on color accuracy. I have found with brocades you don't usually get to choose the base color so just try and get as close as you can with a good pattern underneath. If you get a dragon pattern, I learned something interesting at a con recently, the number of toes on a dragon determines it's status. Three is common, four is royal, and five is imperial. Kinda cool huh. I've had good luck at Joann's when it comes to brocades, if you have one near you, and they usually go on sale several times a year.

Here's an idea for a chinese brocade. I used this for the chinese version of my Cardcaptor Sakura.

Nessa- I agree about the long sleeves for a hoodie. 3/4 just seems weird.

Spica- A few girls have used Brocade...Yaya Han has, I don't remember the names of the other girls. It looks cute ^^

Nessa- full sleeves...3/4 would look like it doesn't fit right o.<

Aurora- I'm actually going with the short hair, that's one of the reasons I decided to remake it x3 I'll just have Flynn button my shirt on XD

Help!

I am portraying Wendy Darling at the end of the month for a children's storytime event. I would really like to find a wig, but for the past year I have had a heck of a time finding anything close to Wendy:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/briberr...7604882335751/

http://www.flickr.com/photos/briberr...7604882335751/

http://www.flickr.com/photos/briberr...7604882335751/

http://www.flickr.com/photos/briberr...7604882335751/

I know I am not going to find anything EXACT. There is just so much going on with the bangs, the curls, the rolls, and banana curl ponytail.

Does anyone have suggestion for a good updo base wig? I wouldn't mind adding extensions and styling the long banana curls or the side rolls myself. I just haven't found a place to start! Everytime I have done my hair for Wendy it has been slighly different each time in how I approach it. But if I didn't have to work with my hair that would be a plus.

The kicker is that the children's organization I am a member of, has two performances of children's storytelling. I am playing Alice in Wonderland and Snow White on one day and then Wendy and Rapunzel on the other! Excited as I am, this is cetainly going to be a theatrical workout!

Any suggestons would be greatly appreciated and who better to ask than the Disney Cosplayers?!
