- Galaxy Express 999
I was asked if I would do a costume
commission for my friend's girlfriend's birthday.
At first I was hesistant, but since it was a simple
enough costume, I agreed. As stated on the front
page, and contact page, I don't normally do commissions,
but for friends I'm willing to make an exception
(specially if they live near by and can come over
for a fitting!) I was so happy to hear how excited
she was when she found out that I had agreed.
At first, he tried to keep it a secret from her,
but with me needing measurements, that proved
to be a challenge.
chose thick, luxurious fabrics for this costume
as I wanted only the best for her. Plus, if I
was to use cheaper materials, the end result wouldn't
have looked as nice, plus the fabrics probably
wouldn't drape quite as nicely as well. In the
end I had broken 4 needles, cut 2 fingers and
spent hours upon hours sewing fur trim on by hand.
I think the dress looks lovely, and I can't wait
to see her in it!
