so I decided to get off my ass and get my Princess Serenity cosplay ready for future cons, after I get off chemotherapy. <3
the top pictures are of the modified base gown i used; it was a vintage wedding gown i thrifted for about 20 dollars when I was a wee snot, back in 8th grade. It got shoved in the closet and never used, but I blame Sailor Moon Crystal for making me nerd out so hard i got it out, ripped out the icky lace neck, reshape the bodice and sew down all the pretty lace applicas.
Those gold rings were a bitch. But it was so, so worth it. Everything ripped off from the neck got salvaged— the lace flowers were from the ruffles and i’ll be using the rest in the sleeves.
the back is grommetted because the bodice fits me, but is a wee bit too small for in the back. ordered some pretty cord for it.
the sleeves will be done this week! I’ll worry about the ass bow later. <3
It’s looking great so far! Loving the bead detail around the gold rings.
