The process of making this dress was a long and sometimes frustrating. As with all costumes I had good and bad days, overall I see it as a good experience.

I think the thing I like least about this dress is that the zipper is for more obvious hen the original dress. In the end it came down to that moment when you just need to let it go and move on.

The most frustrating part of dress construction was I fact what you didn’t see. I found making a Ivan shaped hoop was very difficult. I ended up making at least six unique versions before I found one that was adequate. I’m fact the hoop snapped during the con from been stepped on one too many times. It was huredly put back together to using some ribbon I had used to decorate the hoop.

I wore the dress to the AMC expo In Melbourne.
