finished Elvish gown!

The Elvish gown is officially finished! *throws confetti* Bridget put the last bead on yesterday. It looks so amazing. I couldn't be more pleased with this gown. It has been such much fun to team-up with Bridget on it. I thoroughly enjoyed the process and using the best of our talents to produce something this nice.

I took some pics on of the dress on Narcissa this morning. It looks even more fabulous on Bridget. She is going to do a trial-run of her hair/makeup in the next few weeks and I'll take some pics of her in the gown then. She is going to do her hair like she did for Easter, with the addition of some hair extensions and sparkly hair bobbles.

We decided this gown really needed the Evenstar but since that is not an option at the moment, we had to be creative. I scrounged around in my jewelry stash and found a pair of highly gaudy earrings I picked up for no particular reason months ago. They were $.50 I believe and thought they might come in handy for something. Well they have! I popped one of the earrings off it's hook, put a little jump ring on it and put it on a silver chain. Et voici, the perfect necklace. *big 'ole grin* I can not wait to see the finished look on B!!!!

I'll be posting the diary for this costume on my site in the next few days... I'll let you know when it's online.

Wow! That is one stunning gown! Bridget did a supurb job on the embellishment. I'm so totally jealous. ;) I can't wait to see a picture of her modeling it! :)

Did I mention how beautiful this dress is? It's beautiful!

I have an idea...if your going to make a diary for this dress include "B's Beauty Tips" Elvish Dress UP. Hair, jewelry, makeup and the finished product. :)

Thanks. :>

That's an idea... the hair style is super simple though and more Star Wars inspired but it's a thought... :>

Very lovely, and using the earring was a great idea! :) Congratulations and applause to both of you.
