14 Days to Dragon*Con: A Quick Costume Update

 

Hi guys!  We are TWO WEEKS OUT (WHAT?! YAY!) and  that means it is costume update time!

All my Melisandre components are coming together incredibly well!  My wig, necklace, and belt are all here, and the dress is coming along splendidly.  I met with my seamstress on Sunday and she has the underlayer more or less completed, and is now working on the overlayer.  I’ll be seeing her again this Sunday to try on the double-layered dress so that she can make final adjustments, and then it should be almost ready!  The necklace and belt are also incredible (thanks Valerie–you’re getting your own post later on in the countdown!) and I threw the necklace on with my wig (which still needs styling!) and a red shirt just to get an idea of what the completed package would look like:

Not too shabby right?  I need to fit the necklace to me a little better, and there is SO MUCH WIG happening, oh man.  I need to style it like whoa.  But I’m super excited, I think it is going to be great!

I also did some work on my Portal Companion Cube costume this past weekend, adding some additions to an existing gray dress I own–so far, so good.  And my adorable pink wig came!  Check it out:

I LOOOVVVEEE IT.  I never thought I’d love me with pink hair, but I do.  I think my little Companion Cube costume is going to be super-adorable.

How are your Dragon*Con costume preparations coming along?  Can’t wait to see everyone in their finest!
