I guess we overdid a bit.. hahaha. I like to try different looks on her and things that I couldn't do anymore. I am completely a hands-on mother when it comes to her outfits for every event that she joins. So here goes...
This is when her school had a costume party for their Xmas celebration last 2010. She was 6 years old then.
This is her before the transformation... she's quite restless and bored already ..
This is her after her make-over. Hair (by me) and make-up by my sister.
Her eye make-up is a combination of green pink and yellow shades with a hint of glitter powder (for makeup). You will find out later why...
The first get-up is for a dance number.
The second outfit is for a song number.
She is with her classmate in the middle picture. We decided to up-do her hair on the spot. The little flowers is just a preparation for the third change.
And the final is for the actual costume. She came out as a fairy...the reason for the eye make-up. It goes well with her wings.. hehehe
I made the gown itself. .... no... I am not a professional seamtress.. I just know how to put one thing from the other. This is just a simple tie-back gown so i don't need to do the complicated zipper thing.. hehehe... It is a low back dress made from used textile (retaso from our previous props) layered with unused organza (which i used for my giveaways) which I was able to re-use again..lol. See, I didn't spend much at all. I just bought the wings from divisoria and the artificial flower used to decorate her hair and dress.
It turned out nice and everyone thought I bought it as is. Honestly, if I could, I wouldnt spend much at all..I am just resourceful. A friend of mine even borrowed the costume afterwards for her daugher. Not bad at all.
Sorry, I couldnt put up a tutorial for now but I'll see what I can do if I do find the time.
Thanks and tell me what you think of my first post.
