YEAAAAH. More Bella! I just re-stumbled on ~houkiboshi
's amazing photos from when I briefly kidnapped her at the end of our maaassive Harry Potter shoot after SMASH this year, as well as to the Deathly Hallows Part II midnight screening! And...yeah. Strawtography is so much win! XD
This version of Bella is based off of her outfit in the final movie - Dealthy Hallows Part II. It was my first time making a costume whilst referencing a costume that had already been made. So it was a very different experience asking myself 'how did they do this, and what did they use?' instead of "Oh god how do I replicate this thing that only exists in 2D?!". I think I'd really like to try and do more movie/live action costumes in the future.
Of course, whilst making this with the movie being not-yet released, finding references wasn't very easy. And I did eventually find a nice clear hi res image...about a week before the movie came out, and when I was nearly done! I did my best with what I've already made, but it's definitely not perfect. And with the ammount of scratches I got from pins whilst trying to sew that vinyl bustier, I don't think I would've wanted to spend much longer on it. =_=; I also had this wonderful moment the night before the con where I realised that I'd left one of my armlets back home in Melbourne. So I hijcked *Wakaleo
's kitchen floor and cut a new one out of the back of my skirt?! OTL;
