Description

Daughter #3, AkA Drama Queen ,decided first that she wanted to be the Red Queen. After a huge sigh I got right to work. I started it about a month ago, sooo glad I’m done! It’s really hard where I live to find the things I need, so I had to decorate the fabric the way I wanted it with paint and stitching, worked out well. For the arms I used fish net tights and gold spandex stretch pants from last halloween. Bead work was done bead by bead and stitched on by hand. I get pretty obsessed when it comes to staying true to the original costume, that’s what takes me so long. Made the crown with craft foam. Scored the perfect shoes for a $1 at the thrift shop (gotta Love it) and spray painted them gold ,over laid lace, and sprayed again with black . I really love these shoes and so does she. What 9 yr old doesn’t want to wear fancy heels. I think she is VERY HAPPY with it and can’t get enough of running around YELLING, “OFF THERE HEADS” to her brother and sisters! By the way that is her real hair, and we are both not happy about the fact that it took me about an hour to comb it out!
Used three different patterns to construct it: McCall’s Costume M6141, M5731, and Simplicity 7107.
