We'll call it halfway  

So.. the colors aren't 100% accurate, but I don't care :P Chances are, I'm only going to wear this once. It was already pretty expensive for a one-time wear, but it's only good for Adventure Time groups since its a minor character! lol The inaccuracies aren't really that noticable, so I'll point them out! The stripes on the sleeves and legs should be the two tones of the dress. I couldn't find any purpple/purple wide-striped tights, and I wasn't going to make any. I could only find wide black/purple or black/white or purple/white striped tights. The purple/white on We Love Colors is basically the lavendar of the dress, but I didn't want to try to dye the white the darker purple. Too much work. So we're getting halloweeny purple/black striped tights from some costume shop on ebay. Also, the lighter purple I picked is probably a little too light, but again.. whatever XD The important parts of the costumes will be done, and I have full confidence that if an Adventure Time fan were to look at a group photo and match up characters, they'd be able to tell what I was going for.

Though.. with all these damned scalloped edges, I'm really starting to wish I'd done flame princess instead! :( I got away from that idea because I didn't want to have to deal with styling the wig!

I need to fix the hem lenth on the lighter colored dress, then get to work making scalloped hems along the bottom of both dresses. After that's done, all I'll really have to do is finish the collar on the capelet and pemenantly attach a million felt leaves to it. Oh, and the circle applique on the dress, but that's just going to be a lot of heat n' bond and fabric paint :X

I still don't have shoes for this costume, whoops!

Anyway.. I'm working mostly on this one right now because it's the one that still needs the most sewing. Once Natalia overtakes Purple Princess on sewing required, I will probably go back to Natalia. Though, I'm wondering if I should just give up on that one for now, since Tania seems hell bent on me doing FF5 now. Since I'm leaving Sunday, I only have time for 3 costumes! Maybe I should just finish it and wear whatever the hell I want :X

I want you to get all yur new costumes done. I was just giving you an alternative if you didn't think you could get stuff done. No pressure. :P
