Betty Boop-Oop-A-Doop Costume

First of all, I have to say the past few days have been very hectic! I started the week with my last day of final exams, and by the end of the day I lay dead in bed. The next day I had to wake up very early to go the the fabric market to buy stuff to make a Betty Boop costume, which is the character I decided to go as to a costume party.

After a very quick trip around fabric market I went back home and started my super-top-speed-non-stop-killer-machine-sewing mode. And by the end of the day I almost finish the whole dress. Being sleep deprived from the whole ‘exam season’, I went to bed early only to wake up the next day to complete the dress, wash it, iron it and then go to help my friend prepare his costume (which by the way took ages!)

As you can see my friend went as the Avatar and you can still see traces of blue ink on my hands and arms.

So, the night was a BLAST (but I don’t want to bomb you with so many pictures, haha)! The food was enjoyable, the activities was fun, everything was just perfect!

Now, I got to go dip my feet in warm water to help with my foot ache (seriously, how do other girls manage to wear high heels for hours without getting sore is a total mystery…) but here’s a little sneak peek of something I’ve been working on. 🙂

A Collab Photoshoot!

This actually was taken during October last year but I was busy with stuff and exams so I’m posting this now. First of all happy new year! ^U^ Hope everyone had a good vacation! (I envy you people whose country celebrate Christmas! I actually had my exams on christmas haha)

Since I’m so crappy with a camera I asked one of my classmate to photograph some of my garments for me. And what is a photoshoot without models, right? So I asked another two of my friends to model, and after some debate we decided to shoot in my neighborhood. So these are the photos!

This is one of  the edited pictures. This was a dress I made when I was a freshman in high school. We actually planned to photograph another dress but in the end we didn’t have time. :’-(

The red dress is actually a skirt and a top. I wore the same outfit to my grade 11 homecoming party.

Last but not least is the Baby Blue dress.  This dress design is actually very simple (and maybe too simple .__.) and I think if I have time I’ll add some more details.

I hope I could update my blog more often but then my final exams are only a month away and homework is just too much _ _ Tomorrow’s my last day for New year break so I’ll finish what I’m sewing and hopefully I will find time to post it!

Halloween Sexy Long Dress

BlackWidowSketch

I didn’t have much time since I had so much work to do I didn’t update my blog for so long. This was actually from October .___. haha…

Since in Thailand halloween isn’t celebrated I never got much chance to dress up. Back in my old private school we would dress up to school in halloween costumes (instead of boring uniforms) and participate in the school’s halloween festival, which include the haunted house(which I remember was very scary) games booth, food booths, and all kind of contests. But I’m now in a government school (for 5 years already) so there’s no chance for any fun… However, for this halloween I wanted to make some kind of costume(even though in the end I didn’t get to wear it, haha).

The dress was inspired by the black widow spider, known for it’s venom and sexual cannibalism.I wanted to design a dress that would suit something like a black widow-human version. So my concept was sexy, alluring, a bit mysterious. In my original design I plan on using black as the base color and embroider red metallic thread for the spider web design on the shawl. In the end I didn’t have time so I ditched the shawl and made the dress only.

This is me trying the top on…

The beading detail…

The first fitting, I remember having to fix this dress a zillion times before it actually fits nicely over the body.

I didn’t take pictures when I was making the chiffon skirt because I forgot, haha. I guess I was concentrating so much I completely forgot… Also I was frustrated because my dress form broke for like the 4th time. (I just noticed that when it’s on dress form you can’t see the beading from the front. )

Conclusion: Took around 60 hours to complete. The fabric was actually cotton leftover from some school project though originally I wanted to use crepe. This was very lo budget since the fabric is free leftovers (except the chiffon) The beads were something I had around the house so I would estimate that I costed me around…350-400 baht or around 10-13 dollars ^^
