Glitter!Elphie progress report

Nine days to Halloween...

Done:
  • acquired sparkly green witch hat
  • acquired sparkly purple broom
  • acquired Baby!Chistery
  • brightened up sparkly purple & green dress with an OxyClean bath
  • acquired emerald green pancake foundation and lipstick, sparkly false eyelashes and purple eyeline "jewels"
  • acquired purple fishnets to wear over already-owned green tights
  • brushed & styled wig


To do:
  • fix zipper in dress
  • acquire long purple gloves
  • give Baby!Chistery his wings
  • test makeup


Optional to do:
  • make/acquire purple cloak ('cause, dude, bare shoulders in Chicago in October...)


Last but not least, need to finalize the footwear sitch. I was initially thinking I'd get some granny boots and glitz them up somehow, as another vestige of Elphie's "real" clothing preferences. Then it dawned on me that, under the AU circumstances, maybe she should have Nessa's shoes. *eg* From what I've seen, in the musical they're more like Baum's "silver shoes", but for Halloween you always want to go with the recognizability factor. So the hunt is on for adult-size ruby slippers. Which will also, of course, make the whole getup that much gaudier...

I have said purple cloak. It's crushed purple velvet. :-)

Re: Too bad you not closer....
Yup, that'd be the ticket.

I'll probably nab a cheap panne one and add a hem, lining, etc. later. The ones I've seen are actually decently constructed otherwise.
