A while ago, I talked about the Rose Tyler Idiot’s Lantern dress that I made by sewing all the sequins on the top by hand. At the time, I had finished sewing the sequins on it and thought it was completely done. Since then, I fixed parts of it I didn’t like and lengthened the skirt. (I lengthened the skirt by re-doing the hem. I made the skirt longer than I normally would so I could have the luxury of doing this) I didn’t have very many pictures of it because I didn’t have a dress form to show how the whole dress looks completed. I finally got around to buying a dress from and took photos of the dress on it. Here is what the whole dress looks like….

What I didn’t mention before is that I made a underskirt to wear with the dress. I made a skirt to wear under the dress because the satin can become transparent in the right light. I wanted to be able to wear this skirt again for fun and without the pink dress.
The skirt is made out of pink costume satin and some pink tulle. I used a pattern I modified a while ago as a base for the skirt, but the rest of it I made from rectangle pieces of fabric. It also has an elastic waistband and is comfortable to wear…
I need to adjust the elastic size of the skirt because it’s too big for me. It was large when I made it but I’ve recently grown taller and thinner so it pretty much slips off my body when I wear it. It’s an easy fix, but it’s just a matter of me stopping my procrastination and doing it. ^_^
I’m not sure when I’ll be able to take photos of me wearing the dress or the whole costume including the wig, but I’d like to do it sometime next year if possible. I’m still trying to find someone that is a good photographer willing to take photos of me in the dress. I think my mom will be the one who will take photos of me, but I’m still discussing it with her. ^_^
