Cosplay bought from MicCostumes then altered- blouse taken in for more hourglass shape, all buttons replaced, new necktie made, added in new belt detail on skirt.
Embellished the shoes with pearl detail. Layered 2 pairs of tights to mimic hers. This costume takes 2 SUPER push up bras, a period accurate waist cincher, and a spandex waist smoother/shaper to get her vintage/pin-up silhouette! WOOO! XD
The wig is was REALLY took the most effort on this costume. Started with a lace front from Arda and pin curled the entire wig following an old drawing from a vintage magazine for a Pageboy style. Set all the curls with steam, hairspray, and then heat before releasing and brushing out. The brush out was the most crucial step in order to encourage the curls to take the correct shape. Once shaped, the fiber was set generously again with hairspray and heat. This is definitely a high maintenance wig and not very travel friendly other than driving XP
