Yes its the same time as last year's and Thank you Mika that route helps now I just have to find a way around the University or try cutting through it with the dress on.

I don't really have any bus tickets or anything to try go shopping for a new corset before the convention since Polo Park isn't close by like Portage place is and they don't have a lingerie store or bra store (for others that read this) at Portage place.

Yeah I want to keep my stomach as flat as possibile with this dress on the other one will have a bra underneath so that means I either have to wear the other dress the first day or the last day.

I want to debut both dress's on my birthday but I will try to find a way to be able to debut both on my birthday even if that means getting my husband to be to watch a backpack or suitcase that will have the other dress in it

This is where its going to be held - http://www.wcc.mb.ca/index.php

Been running around like crazy getting everything ready for this weekend. It's not Disney, but I know you guys will appreciate it anyway so here's a sneak peak of my costume I've been working 7 months on while moving houses.

I'll have better pics when I get back from con but in the meantime enjoy these and see if you can guess who I'm costuming.

Currently working on the blouse (the one in the photo is just a muslin) and hope to have that done tonight or tomorrow. Then I just need to fix the waistband of the skirt and hem it.

Question: Does anyone know of a tutorial or pattern for her hairbow? I've been digging around online and am not having much luck.
I find the easiest way for any bows is this:

2 large rectangle pieces
1 piece of heavy interfacing the same size
2 long skinny rectangle pieces
2 small rectangle pieces

Layer the 2 large pieces with the interfacing on top ( or bottom, either way ) and sew all around except for 2 inches in the center of the bottom line.

Flip inside out.

Sew the two long pieces together, leaving a gap in the center of the bottom line.

Flip inside out.

Sew the two small pieces together ( you can leave the ends open )

Flip inside out.

Lay the big rectangle flat and the long skinny one just below it, also flat, lining up the gaps.

Pinch them in the middle.

Take the smallest rectangle, wrap it around the center and sew it shut. Trim off the excess and you can flip this ( now a loop ) inside out while it's on the bow. Takes some finnicking, but it works.

Voila, done! Bow!

That's how I made this one:


You can play around with the lengths and widths before you even sew everything up just by pinching them in the middle to get an idea for size.

Oh, and you put it in your hair just by slipping bobby pins through the center loop and into your wig ( or your own hair ) where the top portion is tied up.

A well fitting corset shouldn't be uncomfortable at all the key is balanced lacing! Don't try to make yourself smaller than is comfortable, (read, you should be able to breathe.) also, wear it now. You need to get used to a slightly shallower breath. And moving. I have done many a costume with full steel boned proper corsets, and have spent 20hrs in them with no issue. It's about getting used to the garment.

Oh Okay I didn't know that, I had to re-lace my entire corset so I could do it up myself which is a lot more easier for me now and fits better to what I think.

It kind of ripped inside near the one of the things and I had to hand stitch it so it wouldn't rip more so I really don't want to wear it for too long so it doesn't rip again it is basically a cheap corset that I got for $40.00 at a store near me.

LKD: Wow, I'd have never thought to do a genderbent Gaston! That's awesome!

----

Thanks so much for the bow tutorials, everyone!

I made mine a bit too squarish so it didn't turn out especially well when I smooshed the center, but it's good enough for now. I'll remake it when I get a chance. I used interfacing and a bit of tulle for stuffing, as well as some wire to hold the bottom "V" open so the bow wouldn't be so floppy.



Now everything is done aside from styling the wig (which I'm terrible at... ugh).



The petticoat is too long for the skirt, so I'm just going to pin it up a few inches around my waist. I may rip out the side seams of the skirt and add some pockets so I can keep my phone and stuff on me. Trying to decide if I should bring Sebastian or Flounder along or not.

Eventually you might want to look into a properly fit to you corset, they're worth it. I wear mine a lot for costumes and they're relatively comfy if they fit you properly and are not laced too tight.

LKD
your lady Gaston is hilarious and awesome!

whithersoever looking very adorable!

Finally making some progress on my Kiss the Girl Ariel.
I got my apple red luthien wigs from Arda, I'm really happy with them! Finally found a wig color I was happy with. I still need to style them. Please forgive my overzealous purikura picture. XD


I also decided to draw a custom fabric to use for the over-bodice for fun.
If you want this for yourself, I think it'd make a cute 50's dress or whatever you want, too...! the damask version is here: http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/2022576 and the border version is here: http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/2027416

Do you mean a proper store bought one like from Victoria's Secret or a custom made one?

I wouldnt call Victoria's Secret a real corset. A lot of corsets at lingerie shops are kinda just... decorative.

You could make one yourself and modify the pattern to make sure it fits you well. A victorian corset is a good bet. I love my Laughing Moon Silverado Victorian Corset that I made. I've worn it for YEARS under a ton of costumes.

custom corsets can be really expensive, but if you're going to wear them for years and you don't want to make it yourself, it might be worth it to you. You can find various places online, but finding a custom corset person near you so they can do an in person fitting would be the best bet.

Another option is cheaper ready made but "real" and nice corsets like those from Timeless Trends Corsets. They go to many cons, so you might be able to find them at a con near you (maybe see what their con schedule is) then you could try one on in person. Or you could order one online here: http://www.timeless-trends.com I'm sure there are other options, too.

A real functional corset is made out of thick fabric (like coutil) at least on the enclosed interior and has really good bones (not just flimsy plastic bones.) It laces using corset lacing (which is thick like shoelaces) Never laces with ribbons. A good corset will almost stand on it's own so to speak. A flimsy one is made out of thin fabric with thin bones and flimsy lacing. When you lace in properly you'll get a few inches of waist reduction and your boobs will probably get a boost. It also can help support the weight of heavy hoop skirts so that the waistband isn't digging into your bare waist. It can also make a nice smooth base for your costume in general so you can get a nice smooth look to certain costumes.

You can probably find more information about how to find a proper fitting corset through google, too. Here's a couple I found quickly:

Victoria's Secret is what you would call a "fashion corset" so stay away from anything wih that term. I have found some nice ones online.

Okay Well I will look for them at the conventions that are one in July and one in November both that are pretty big conventions here so they should be at either one of them.

I don't know how to sew or have a sewing machine, I couldn't even follow a simple ----- pattern after a 6 year High school sewing class so I don't even try when it comes to this.

So whatever I have done or plan to do in the future will have who made it for me and if it doesn't then something went wrong or something and I don't want it to be public so I keep it private but will always answer who made it when asked about it.

Edit: So I looked on Timeless Trends Event page located at http://timeless-trends.com/t/events

And none of the events they have scheduled are Canadian Conventions and I was surprised cause there's a huge one this weekend and there not even on it
