For those of you who don't know, I'm a Pixie King. Always have been, but until this weekend I've not had the outfit.
It's not complete yet as I still need to make my crown, but for now I'm quite chuffed with what I've done in just a few hours. I'm especially pleased given the fact that I didn't have access to a sewing machine and I had to do the tail by hand.
Yesterday I went shopping for paint, make-up and the perfect top and bottoms. I did quite well, sticking to a budget of 20 quid*.
*Sometimes I really wish I had a UK Keyboard so I could type the pound symbol instead of writing 'quid' all the time.
Today I painted the stripes...
...hand sewed the tail...
...and assembled the trousers.
Next weekend I'll do the crown and if I have time and can find the right supplies, I may do wings as well.
