Eclipse prom!

This is a picture post, mostly. They are thumbnails behind the cut but there are a lot of them plus captions so i was kind and put them behind a cut. here we go!


The making of Bella's dress
Made by me (Jeanne, aka gryphonclaw on twilightlexicon, aka Victoria for those who saw me at the Prom) for Kayli (aka Isabella Cullen on the twlightlexicon, aka Bella Swan)

Here is Kayli, holding up the fabric (and hiding behind it) before we chop it up


Here I've cut out the initial tubular shape that would become the dress (complete with my laptop in the background with multiple pictures of our reference imagery ;) )


Here I am working my magic on my superduperhandydandy serger (cuts your sewing time in half, if you dont already know it. ANYONE who likes to sew a lot needs to own one)


Here's Kayli posing for us with the start of her Bella dress





Kayli posing again, different angle


I would post more, but there aren't any. I had to make the rest of the dress while she wasn't there. So we will leap from that, to this, the end result; BELLA:


I just want to mention that this dress was made between the hours of 6:30pm and 1am over the course of 3 days. IT WAS HARD, lol...So a huge thank-you to everyone who gave "Bella" so many compliments, and also those who gave me compliments for making it. I think it turned out great considering the limited time and budget we had to make the dress. (supplies were $20, btw). I think if I had had more time and resources I could have pulled off an even more accurate reproduction of the dress, but I am happy with what we made, and I think Kayli is as well. As for my dress..well..I threw it together in about 3 hours on Thursday night(meaning only a few hours before our flight to Arizona). The corset I had made already, I made it last year for a different costume. But I'm super happy with how that turned out as well. ok, done bragging now... =P

That's so cool! Your outfit looks awesome.

Did they hire those guys to stand there for pictures?

Yes, they did. The "Jacob" was actually a professional model and was getting paid a nice amount of money to stand there for pics. The "Edward" was recruited by Stephenie and flown out to Phoenix for the prom.

They both were so cool. (*cough Edward is better! cough*)

Yeah, I would have to agree that the Edward is better. Too bad guys don't read Twilight.

hey did you ever read new moon? im glad that you have read twilight now though so you know who i was dressed as!

Yup yup, you look wild and murderous. Are you kidding, I read both in like 4 days, and it only took me that long because I had school and work! The blank chapters gave me chills. But overall, New Moon was painful to read. Emotionally, that is.

Yeah I know. But you need to now go back and read it over again. You will be able to enjoy it more the second time around because you already know how it will end, so the pain isn't as great. ^_^;

And you get to discover the wonderful guy that is Jacob. (until the very end at least. I'm still so very pissed off at him! xP)

You don't happen to still have the pictures you used as a reference for the dress, do you? It's just that I am also making a Bella dress for a Twilight party and I cannot seem to find pictures of her actual dress anywhere!
