So, here’s what I’ve been working on lately. I’ve only mentioned to a few people that I was thinking of doing this costume. For those who I haven’t told, any guesses what it’s going to be? :-D

The petticoat still needs some work. Right now, it’s 6 layers and has about 7 yards of tulle and 3 yards of netting in it. I made each layer half an inch shorter than the one under it for the graduated effect and the ruffle on each layer was 9 yards long before gathering. o_o; I’m satisfied with the ruffled part but want it poofier at the waist. In the picture, I actually have the petticoat I normally wear with my pink Japanese print dress under the one with all the ruffles to help show the shape I’d like the finished dress to have. So, I’ll most likely make a second petticoat to go under the ruffled one after I get some more netting. I can’t use the one under there right now since it’s too long and just tucked up so that it doesn’t show below the ruffles. The ruffled petticoat only reaches my fingertips and the dress that goes over it is even shorter so that the ruffles show. Must get white shorts to go under this or maybe make ruffly bloomers if I have time. ^_^;;

For the necklace, I couldn’t find a large rectangular blue gem with a setting so I had to buy a clear gem with a setting and pry it out so I could replace it with a loose blue gem in the same size. The setting also only had two holes in each side so I had to ask my father to take it to the store and drill a couple of extra holes into it for me. After that, stringing the necklace was pretty simple.
