I'm not ENTIRELY sure if I have this in the right forum but I hope it is. If not, I DO know it could also be put in the video game/persona section. xD;
I've had the idea for Lucia for a while now. I have most of the materials figured out but I would like a second opinion on it all.
For the material of her corset and dress (seen in attachment 1 and 3), I was thinking of using Iris colored Casa Satin and using Primrose Casa Satin for the ruffles. I'm still contemplating this. I wanted to give it an elegant dressy look but I wouldn't really know what type of fabric to use for it. Any suggestions?
As for the black skin, I wouldn't know what to use for it. I was thinking of painting my skin black and leaving a small bit unpainted where the corset thing goes but then that would be too much time and possibly money. Any suggestions?
I also don't know how to go about her earth dress thing. I was contemplating doing like plastic boning (used for corset making) but now it doesn't seem like a good idea. I had an inkling on how to do the colors. I was going to follow this
tutorial and use craft cellophane. And for the big emblems that seem to keep her dress up, I was going to carve them out of craft foam and make a hole for heavy duty snaps. That way it keeps the dress up to the earth ball thing and no one would be able to see it! I just don't know what I had use as a frame for it all. Should I use vinly? I could really use the help with this one in particular.
Thank you everyone for your help!
