Candyland in progress

My project of the moment is my Candyland dress!  It is a costume based off of Princess Lolly's dress in the boardgame Candyland.  These are photos of my work in progress.

Fashion Show Sucess

Object Runway Season 3 was an absolutely amazing.  Incredibly three of my pieces made it into the top 20!  Backstage was very cozy, and it was so much fun transforming the models with hair and makeup!  My top model actually had feathers adhered to her face to create a black swan effect.  Everybody looked amazing, and I couldn't have done it without all the support from teachers, friends, family, and particularly the models and my hair and makeup it girl.  Thank you everybody!

Each year my school has a themed spirit week, this years overall theme is board games.  More excitingly however our class is Candyland themed!  For the occasion I have decided to dress as Princess Lolly!   The dress features a puffy skirt made of pale yellow tulle, the bodice is scalloped along the neckline with two ribbon straps.  The whole thing zips up the back, and is absolutely darling!  Concept sketches soon to come, along with photographs of the work in progress.

Upcoming Events

I am very excited for the next month or so, I have a lot of projects coming up!  The most immediate is a fashion show called Object Runway, I will be competing 4 of my dresses.  The blue dress is a work in progress, I plan on wearing it to the fashion show.  It is made of chiffon material, has asymmetrical straps, and is draped in the front and back.  For christmas a great seamstress I know gave me a number of different sewing tools, my favorite of which allows you to create spaghetti straps!  So in my anticipation to use the tool, I designed the dress to have a thin strap.

I am really looking forward to the Object Runway fashion show.  I would like to say thank you to every one for being so supportive of my dreams, and especially my models.  Thank you ladies for sticking with me!  And of course a special thanks to hair and makeup, I would never be able to do this without you.

Roaring 20's New Year's Eve Party

For New Year's Eve my best friend and I hosted a roaring 20's party!  It was loads of fun, not to mention everybody looked fantastic!  The inspiration for my little red flapper dress came from popular styles in the 1920's along with the film, "Singing in the Rain."  The dress is made out of red spandex, layered with red fringe.  It wasn't very difficult to make, and it is so fun to wear!
