haha, feels awkward being the first one to post here, but someone has to do it!

I FINALLY finished my skirt today. It's not perfect, but considering it's only the second thing I've ever sewn, I think it came out fairly well. It took me like 2 months, but I learned sooooo much, both in learning to work with the fabrics (fraying SUCKS), putting in zippers, and patterning, that I'm hopeful that the rest of the work will go quicker.

I'm doing the Merciless Gladiator's Regalia set (mage arena season 2): http://www.wowhead.com/itemset=710

Here's the skirt:
It looks a little funky on the dummy because my dummy doesn't quite match the shape of my rather large badonkadonk. The skirt looks a little bare because I've decided to attach the hanging thingies (for lack of a better term) onto the bodice portion, as opposed to hanging it off the skirt.

Where did you order those from? I've been trying to find awesome colored prescription lenses for a decent price. Most places have decent prices, but the second I want to see with them they charge more. If i get them from my optometrist they start at $30 for boring colors. Stuff like yours runs at like $60 and up

Waiting for my fur to dry before I take any full pictures of the pants. My fabric paint on my sash is also drying but here's how the sash looks with its first coat of Rub N Buff and the green gradient about halfway done:

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a3.../beltfront.jpg (I now despise fabric paint)
Here's the fur!
http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a3...ng/furdiff.jpg (what I started with vs test piece)
http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a3...ng/furdyed.jpg (sash plus the bottom pant cuffs)
http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a3...ng/fursash.jpg (how deliciously gross it looks)

Wish my phone didn't wash everything out like crazy. >< Probably gonna have to go over the big piece of fur with a another coat of wash.

And here's a horrible picture of what it all looks like together without anything attached yet!

I really need to invest in a full-length mirror... At least the cat came out recognizable (little squirt...).
