Story Part 3

College came and studies took over, the project never really left us, but we were at a standstill. I needed to work on the embroidery and there were other things we didn’t know how to do, the “egg shaped†lights at the bottom. Shoul got married and packed up the dress pieces to take with her on her travels, far up north from where we started, then south south south east, and finally to the north east. I went west for several years and we didn’t speak often for some time.

As luck would have it, after I graduated I got offered a position in a little town called Exton in the eastern state of Pennsylvania. I knew Shoul was within driving distance again, and as luck would happen I got a date with someone nearby her. So I called her up and arranged for a visit. I had just gotten into the con scene around then and was more serious about costuming. She went to a con with me. I’m not sure what her response was entirely, but we both had some fun. The trip back from that con was a nightmare. Some more time passed and then at a con I asked how a Rikku had made her horns: Paper clay.

The crown was once again possible. The project never truly forgotten, we were close once again, and one of our major stumbling blocks was possible. After a nice Thanksgiving dinner with her in-laws we set out on Black Friday to get some deals, including the Micheal’s craft sale. We got our package of paper clay, a foam head, and then got to work. The crown was now on its way and would be finished soon.

Anytime :aww:

I'm trying to figure out how this pic looked if it was shot right at Caserta's royal palace, where they setted almost all of Naboo scenes...That would be perfect *_*

Great pic and great costume, anyway; how long did you worked on it? Crown and haistyle look so realistic! :love:

Unfortunatly we could not all afford to go to Italy jsut for a photo shoot.

We started it when the movie came out and finished it last year in october.

Noloter Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2013
Yeah, I know, I was just saying...Of course you couldn't go to Italy just for a mere photo, that would have been a bit - you know - "insane"... =P

Wow! It took you a huge amount of time! :eyepopping: I'm impressed.

Well, I've been slowly putting out the whole story at the bottom of the deviations.. so it wasn't like we worked on it too often during those years.

Congratulations with a well-earned DD, this is a lovely shot and dress, and I like the choice of location too. :handshake:
You had me puzzled for a while how one person and/or another could model for one portrait. :icondizzyplz:

We both wore it at the shoot. The second picture I have in the description has Shoul in it not myself.

Oh. My. God. That is seriously impressive. The dress looks so true to the movie, though for some reason the sleeves seem a bit... odd. It might be with how they're laying... Was it more rigid, stiffer? in the movie? Hm. Not sure.

But this is truly amazing, I'm not even kidding. This is so cool.

:iconcosmic-empress:
Cosmic-Empress Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2013
Yeah, I can't say what's off with the sleeves, but they need a touch of love. Also 60,000 budget for the original.... We didn't have that. (Made it with a friend)

lol, Yeah. But like I said, this is really, really awesome. I'm not sure if I've seen something fan-made so awesome put together like this. So much detail and so much work having to be put into it.

My friend and I are super detailed oriented. We wanted it to be as perfect as we could et it. There are a few compromises we made in the end for time and easy. But over all we were both very pleased.

Thanks ^^
