“You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret all the best people are.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
No hiding, this was a sample costume.
It was made way back in January and I can now finally show all the costume.
This sample was for a team set and the design/colour stayed the same... However I've added quite a few stones to this particular costume because I didn't want it to look exactly the same as the team set.
When making this sample I actually tried two different arm styles. One arm was black and purple and the other fishnet. Though the two different arm styles were for me try out and to see how it may work with the teams routine. For this particular costume I have completely gotten rid of an arm.
Another difference that I have made to this costume was adding black diamantes in SS12 and SS8.
AND I mean a lot of them!!
I'm all about letting your fabric shine, however I had had these black stones since 2014. I had brought them for one of my own graceful dresses and have never really had a use for them. So I decided to be little crazy and put these very small stones through the Lycra pattern.
When I started placing them on, I thought this is insane what is the point of spending all this time stoning black Lycra with black stones... It really wont make a difference.
But I must say it does add an extra shimmer to the black.... However I wont be making a habit of this mass stones escapade!
So here it is.
My Mad Hatter Themed Costume.
