Ardhi- sorry if I butchered the spelling XD on my cell and I can't see your name for reference.
Anywho,why don't you try and add either transparant straps or the purple you'll color? I know the problem of BOOBS vs STRAPLESS XD I looked up and noticed all the cosplayers that have nice boobage on strapless tops put clear straps or shooped them out to keep their girls up (reason why I'm including straps in my next Tink dress)

Can't wait to see your ursula!! Dream cosplay of mine x3 unfortunately I'm so tiny and petite so I don't think it'll happen ._.

LOL, you got it right.

Straps were something that crossed my mind. My problem with using clear straps is that I'm quite endowed and normal clear straps just aren't big (wide?) enough for me. I don't know of any place that sells clear fabric, or even what to use to improvise.

I have a few months until my con, I've got time to ponder!

you could use nude dancewear fabric. they do sell clear vinyl by the yard in the home decorator section @ joann fabrics. (i dont know if you live near one) though i would say the nude dancewear would be WAY more comfy than the vinyl.

no progress on cinderella. or derby dress. but i DID buy my hat hopefully today i will get back into both.

@ ardhri: Adding on to kiggi's suggestion, if you do get a nude spandex and it isn't quite the right color for your skin you can use Jacquard Textile paint and paint it a color to match as well so it's not quite as visible. I'm pretty fair so I always have to do that when I use nude spandex.

TopHat- Looks beautiful.

Lime- The embroidery looks good.

Ryogatsu-Love your Shan-Yu!!!!!!

My second wig is slowly detangling itself. I just need three more wefts, but it got all tangled (pun tottaly intended ) and it's driving me nuts. I have detangler but it's still a process. I dyed the lace for the corset and sewed the lace on the sleeves. I got the spray adhesive for the wig once I get more wefts. Not much progress but still not stressing. I refuse to!

@kiggi & seifer - We don't have a lot of dance places in the city, and given I'm a plus size, it's even harder to find things to fit me. I may have to send my aunt on a quest for me. I still haven't decided but my friend is strongly pushing for Ursula so who knows. Maybe I can even talk my friend into being Ariel for a day for me.

@Lime - that is gorgeous! I can't wait to see the finished product!

I'm half-looking forward to and half-dreading my visit to Disney on Monday. I just know I'll see 100000000 things I want to cosplay and buy (not necessarily in that order!) but meh... this is the first time I've been to Florida so I think my family can indulge. I may be getting older but I refuse to entirely "grow up".

ardhri- I'm sure you could find a bodysuit or long-sleeved leotard that was close enough in color and then just tweak it with a bit of dye. The possibly sew the strapless dress to that. Just a thought~
Have fun in Florida! I'd love to meet up with you at Disney, but I'm currently stranded in Ohio. Blegh.

Ryogatsu- Shan Yu looks amazing!

Seifer- Yay for accuracy!

jdoe- I think it looks like a dark blue. I'm looking to use a velour if/when I make my Merida, but I'm not sure. Wool would be the most accurate, but living in Florida is a major lolnope

Okay, I have a question for you guys from a friend of mine.

She wants to make Belle's Christmas dress. She isn't a cosplayer (...hehe, yet...) and when we were at Jo Ann's the other day, we only narrowed it down 'soft'. Which is still a very scary amount of fabric to choose from.

I have only worked with satin, microfiber suede, stretch twill, vinyl, and stretch poplin. Is there anything I should know about soft fluffy fabrics?

Meh goodness, its one thing to waste my own money, but its completely something else to waste anothers. ><
