Sorry it's late, but welcome to all the newbies.
Mermaid- Love your progress so far. I also got the same wig as Furie and I love it.
I'll probably make this one into the braid and order another one to have down for my Designer Rapunzel.
Furie- Good luck on Gothel. I'm sure you'll make an awsome villian. It's fun to kinda do something different.
I'll be in the same boat as you soon as I want to embroider my Punzie as well.
Progress for me: I bought flowers for my hair today.
I'll post pics of them tomorrow, but I really lucked out with some good finds. They may not be size accurate but they are 90% color acurate. That's all that matters anyway right.
I still need to get some baby's breath and some dark pink flowers, but I found most of them at Michales. I love one stop shopping. Hopefully I can dye the bodice pieces and skirt pieces soon. Everything is cut out and the bodice has been overcast so it just needs to be dyed. I can't wait to start working on this costume.
