Disney: Wendy Darling by Aigue-Marine Disney: Wendy Darling by Aigue-Marine
Good Afternoon!! People, how are you? There is only one day left till Christmas. Are you already looking forward to the Christmas tree, Christmas lunch/dinner and the presents you will receive?
Surprisingly I dont feel Christmas-sy at all, but that is a point I will elaborate on another social media platform.

You know, normally Im really fast when it comes to updating my account with new pictures of my latest costumes, but this time it is different. On the one hand I have been feeling terribly lethargic this week which is pretty much unlike me. Normally Im a really lively, cheerful and motivated person. On the other hand I simply could not decide which picture to upload because ALL pictures we took during YukiCon 2011 in Stuttgart, Germany turned out amazingly!
When we left the tiny convention building to take pictures in the almost shabby backyard we would have never expected everything to work out this well. The lighting situation was just perfect with a beautiful golden light of a declining winter sun and I had absolutely no trouble posing in the costume I wore.
All shootings I did in the past months were about looking good in skin-tight suits. Everybody who has worn such a costume before knows that posing in such outfits is really difficult. Consequently I really enjoyed that it wasnt necessary to suck my stomach in all the time
Its been a while since I have been so happy and satisfied about the results of a photo shooting. LadyCallisto is a gorgeous photographer! And shes amazing at editing too. I am so glad to have her!

Speaking about the costume itself Id say that Im about 85% satisfied with the way it turned out. The dress could be a little bit tighter around the underbust, but well I still like it. Compared to my recent costumes (Batgirl and Miss Martian for example) it is really comfortable and can be worn in both summer and winter.
The part of the costume Im the least satisfied with is the wig. I am extremely proud about the ponytail, but adding corkscrew curls to the strands of the ponytail was almost impossible. I tried every possible technique I found in tutorials on the internet hot water, hair spray and a hair dryer, even glue it didnt work out. As soon as I removed the curlers the curls were gone.
During my holidays I will try to wash out the hairspray and glue and add new corkscrew curls to the wig again. That is the only part of the costume I really want to revise.
Generally speaking Im content with the costume and especially the pictures though.

P.S.: I will upload a lot of pictures of this costume in the next days. There are so many I would like to share!! I just thought it would be better to start with a full-body shot instead of a portrait. You can see much more of the actual costume in this picture.
