I'm currently working on Ciel's pink dress, and I've gotten the basic shape of it, but I'm a little bit stuck at the ruffled/gathered/folded/whatevered part on the skirt. The dress is constructed (not hemmed except on the bodice part), and I plan to use black ribbon on the ruffled parts, but I'm not sure how to do it that way. Gathering it makes small ruffles that just look bad. I'm trying for the bigger, more dramatic ones. Any suggestions on how to get this done?
On my Ciel Phantomhive BallRoom, BallGown, Trap, Robin, PinkDress cosplay it's been pinned up to make the ruffles. Although in this picture my heels were too short so I stepped on my dress and tore it so I pinned it and it's all lop-sided.. :/
2014 Cosplay Plans:
Madara(undicided), Naruto(shippuden), Menma,
and Abigail "Misty" Briarton.
Possible 2014 cosplays: Scootaloo
Commissions I'm waiting on: Secret 2014 cosplay.
Yeah, I was thinking about pinning it, but I was a little worried that it would start to look pinned, especially in the back where the very dramatic ruffles are. I poked around on the Internet a bit and eventually found a tutorial on how to do this that I won't have to make too many changes to what I already have. Thanks for the suggestion though!
