My Luna costume is coming together.  I might have two Luna costumes for Azkatraz...but I'll definitely have at least one.  I'll also have my anon Death Eater and Slytherin costumes.

Here's some pics.  I don't have a wig yet...but you can see the general idea.  Pink jacket is courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] dixiebell12 .  I made the earrings out of paperclay and the necklace out of butterbeer corks (duh!) and wooden beads from [livejournal.com profile] droxy 's old sewing chair cover that finally gave out on her.  Thanks Dixiebell and Droxy!  Repurposing at its best!  I was a total slacker and purchased the spectrespecs from this lovely crafter.  I must admit...the specs make the costume.





Earrings:


Necklace (still a WIP...I think I might make it longer):


Here's me without the specs...still looking a bit hollow-eyed from being sick:



And with the specs:

You do look like her Qui *G* If you lightened your hair you wouldn't need a wig. Does everything look funny out of those glasses?

Hugs,
Dix

Yes....they're like 3D glasses. The little holes at the center have red/blue see-through plastic on them..I'll probably have to take those off or I'll be running into walls. LOL!

You resemble Luna very closely, can't wait to see at Azkatraz.

You make an excellent Luna!! If you bleached your hair up a bit you wont need a wig as has been said! wigs can be a pain in the butt to wear for long periods of time. ;-)

Thank you!

I haven't had to wear a wig in years, but I remember it wasn't fun (I played violin and I had to wear a wig over my very unnatural red hair during orchestra performances). It hadn't even occurred to me that I could get away with not wearing one for Luna! Thanks again! :)

Yes - with the accessories, Luna's really coming together! When I put it all on, I was shocked at how well it worked. LOL.

Seee.

What did Droxy tell you?

I am getting comments at dress diaries on mr O. So women who are much better at costuming than I am are telling me it's the details that make it work.

We don't need to be exact, what we need do is create an illusion. - Hugs you.

Yes, Droxy is full of useful information and is always right. You are a master of illusion. *hugs and squeezes*

Your Olli costume is absolutely amazing!
