I can costume too!

shiny, thing
Everybody's making costuming posts at the moment - must be Dragon*Con time. I, of course, have no money to fly over there, but I can costume too! I have the MCM Expo in October, and I'm thinking Black Canary and Mel - the latter costume I already have, of course - and then Rocker Bing's wedding in November, the theme for which is "creative black and white".

Black Canary to do:
 - The leotard sumerianhazeDaniel gave me the money for, didn't fit, even in large, so I'm resorting to making one, out of this pattern, which is on order. Working with stretch fabric scares the bejesus out of me, though. Switching the zip to the front is probably beyond me, but I'll try and find a ring to put on the collar.

 - Earrings: I have no bird shaped earrings, But I've seen her with bats before, and I do have those.

Wedding to do
 - Bow tie - probably black, but dependant on what jawalterJoe's wearing.
 - Black velvet tail coat: using this pattern, as it's the only tail coat I could find, and I can't afford to buy a quality one.
 - White ribbons for my stiletto boots.
 - Cuffs - my shirt has button cuffs, so I need to add a button hole for folded cuffs. I love these cufflinks, but they're out of my budget, so borrowing from ms_ntropyBing.

Hallowe'en costumes I can definitely do! :-D I just find leotards really hard to source in my size, and I'm not even big.

I have been told by at least one friend that I am never allowed to dress up as a supervillain (specifically, Dr. Doom) for DragonCon.

If you need it I can provide a Bowtie (either a proper one or ready made) and cummerbund. That should save you about £20 quid, but I only have them in black. (Tie Rack/M&S are your friends should you need alternative colours).

I don't need a cumberbund because I have a corset. But a black tie would be awesome. Bing has a white one should I need to go for that.
