Halloween Edition 2014 Pt. II

Halloween is still undergoing, and I have one more costume to share with you all. Ok, in the previous post I asked you to guess what costume I had designed. I gave you two hints: she is a Disney Princess and she’s an ice princess. Well it’s no other than Elsa from Frozen. It seems as though this year Elsa is the number one Halloween costume requested amongst lil girls, every ad seems to have her in the front cover! Good thing my little customer will not be wearing a store bought Elsa and look like the rest of the little Elsa’s lol she’ll be wearing a custom design setting her apart from them.
 

 If you don’t know who Elsa is here is a picture of her.

For this design I had to look closely at the details that make up her dress. She has a sweetheart bodice, with a v waist line, and semi fitted skirt. Her dress also has sheer sleeves, neckline yoke, and a cape which are covered in sparkles and snowflakes.

Work in progress


For this costume I used three different fabrics to get the same look. I found a nice soft turquoise which will be for the skirt and under layer of the bodice. For the bodice overlay I got a matching chevron sequin fabric. The third fabric consisted of a sheer sparkly performance fabric.

 


Here is the final product! Love the way it came out so sparkly.

Even though the cape and yoke may seem complicated, the design was really simple. Overall I’m happy with the results; this one was pretty interesting to see it come to life.

Even though I designed these two costumes based on Disney movies, I have yet to see either one, that’s what I’ll be doing now that I’m done with these costumes. Bring out the popcorn! This concludes the Halloween edition for 2014.

Which Disney princess costume did you like?

I'll be reviewing each item and tell you a bit more about them.

LBD Goodwill Challenge

Happy Thursday fashionista's! I've been a bit MIA on my blog lately, but today I'm back with an exciting post. If you have been following my blog for a while then you might remember me talking about Phoenix Fashion Week. Each year they host a challenge, which consist of illustrating your perfect little black dress. They choose the top four illustrations which then you get to bring to life. In which the designers showcase it in Phoenix Fashion Week's annual fashion show. This year they had a completely different challenge.


The little black dress challenge was presented by Goodwill of Central Arizona and Phoenix Fashion Week. You had to shop at one of 67 locations, find a project dress, up-cycle, re-purpose it into your own perfect little black dress. The dresses would then be turned in by Saturday 26, 2015. Which would then be judged by up-cycle expert Angela Johnson. They select the top four designs. Once chosen 25% of the votes would come from social media and 75% …
