Reference sharing because..

Well, I like sharing and nerding so…

But I am having some relapse of the disease notably in my hands (symmetric), feet (symmetric), and jaw (asymmetric as I have an old clicky injury on the right- but it does lead to relatively symmetric issues after a few hours…). I also just came down the bad side of nine hourprednisone mountain, so have had a small touch of chemically induced depression on top…

She does feed from the hand but she doesn’t look comfortable around people so I generally go up to her with my head turned so I don’t look so predatory.

Meanwhile Mr BooBoo has his way and has a few meters of black netting for his nest under my desk.

Just some screen caps, fabric and seam details.

To note especially:

  • The bugle beads are chain stitched, which makes me think cornely machine but I think there are more suited machiens that can do multiple rows at a time.
  • the v points will have a facing of bias fabric most likely
  • the bust has some amasing shaping, not the curve comes back on itself over the bust and there is a dart to the outside of it as well.
  • The cape has at least three seams for flare, and much of the edge is eased not gathered

Also note, the shredding of the hem. That is what happens with this stuff, unfortunately. So if you are going to go the couture fabric route remember that $1000 skirt will shred like the blazes as it was not meant to be dragged on the ground.

Yep, standard width silk chiffon with beads, many lots of dollars for the base fabric but sigh.

Sub dye? Yep, you can get that done many places. Not saying to use the design.. just the method… It’s basically printing, like with an inkjet printer:

http://www.printonfabric.co.nz/fabric_options#!print-technology/coru

Heat and pressure are used to transfer images from an ink jet printed paper negative, to the fabric. 

And it is best on polyester fabrics… Not that it will get you the silver print, but you can get full width opaque printing done as well.. *edit* I think the silver is part of the fabric and the sub dye is for the darker blue areas, but if you wind up needing a foil print type effect due to where you are what you have available it is an option. Better done as in industrial job than trying to weed sheets of vinyl foil at home…

So kind of the opposite of what people have been doing at home. Sigh, now I want to see if I can get a similar effect on my net.

And my previous notes:

Wait what’s that? Beaded fabric for the skirt? You don’t say… This is how the skirt has the same weight and yet flow as in the movie. The beads pull the fabric smoothly over the hips and then the weight makes the hem swish but also not flick about. I think it’s a standard chain stitch with the double cut bugles spaced evenly, and alternating. I haven’t seen the exact fabric but it is the standard method of doing beaded fabric.

Do not be fooled by the word “novelty”….

I wanted this in AB clear beads on white so I could ombre dye. But… The fabric plus shipping plus customs would be closer to $2000….

Just to give an idea of how how much this would actually be to reproduce….

Oh check it, raglan sleeve for the sheer top (which Elsa does definitely have) and I love how they committed to the smaller surface decoration on the bodice. Just doing it :)

I’m a big fan of how these work on TV. And goes to show how moving vs static images change what you see. 

And I have my Elsa wig on the way as well as have set aside exactly what layers I want for the skirt and bodice structure. So, I will get Elsa done! but it will be a summer project :)

There’s more info about the fabric in this video!  Not much more, but you might be interested in seeing it.

Meep! Copy paste error? I have seen the stills taken during shooting :) But I just started playing the video at 1080 on my 27” monitor so screencappy ahoy in 3….2….

Who has two thumbs and a Maleficent Blu-ray?

Me!!! One watch through, one check of the extras.. okay.. before I start figuring out a better way of getting images:

The Christening gown ring is a large pointed crystal (think chandelier drop) in black with several corroded metal support spikes and a few disected spikes that look a bit like phalanges (dancing phalanges!OMG Bones/Maleficent crossover….)

Another ring has a crystaline surface…

I’m laughing so hard! Apparently I’m an awesome pony, but I’m also somewhat of a poo. XD

Google refuses to put the words in the correct order so I wind up with four, yes four “is michaela a” (pretty name, biblical name, etc.) Thanks google.

I did try boolean and it basically said, nup, no one does that, you are a question.

Or it only will use the Mckayla modern spelling to get “mckayla is not impressed with twitter.” No. Michaela is nt impressed with google. Or people who use google. Or the way the algorithms work.

Oops, slight problem here…

I knew it would be a problem to store but I really can&#8217;t do anything else with the Elissa skirt. Umm&#8230; Yeah.
