Except for buttons, and finishing the bottom of the skirt, I’ve got the suit finished and ready to distress, stripe with fabric paint, and sew on spiders. Ignore the color; my camera didn’t capture the color AT ALL accurately. It’s actually a dark mossy green. Fabric sample shown in the previous post.
Cute little pockets are cute.
The back is a basic as you can get.
Next up, I get to begin all the fun stuff – the accessories!
Reference pics and fabric choice 12/4/15
I just love this costume. And I love it even more after I saw it in person, with all the funny details.
Reference shots from the Warner Bros Studio Tour:
The cat boa has mice in their mouths!
Spiders, spiders everywhere. I hate spiders. I still love this costume.
The problem with the Warner Bros Tour though, is the lighting. They are all dramatic, which means that a costume like this one, that is actually quite a dark green, is turned rather…grayish lavender. The actual coloring is more like this:
This fabric is friggin’ impossible to find. OF COURSE. But I did find a plain green with a similar texture.
I’m going to darken it, and add the streaky look by hand brushing on black fabric paint.
