Character: Snow White

The wig was styled, but a bit too curly for my taste and the makeup is a tad too harsh for someone as delicate as Snow White. I think my favourite part would be the skirt part of the dress, it's actually two silk fabrics sewn together, which was extremely hard given how slippery they were! I needed the underneath layer for thickness and the top layer for the correct shade of yellow.
Overall, given it was sewn in 3-4 days in the evenings I'm quite pleased with it. Just a few tiny things I'd like to change bring it to the next level, but from what I can tell, no one has really noticed all my errors just yet. Oh, last thing. I know the sleeve bands are gold/yellow in the Disney version, but I didn't think it was a very flattering combo and altered them to watch the actual sleeves. Not the most accurate move, but in my opinion I think it looks a lot better.
I wasn't too pleased with the photo shoot, given our location wasn't really a "forest" settling, so I am planning to re-shoot in the future, with the correct shoes, better wig and makeup.
