Okay, so I'm half covered in make-up that took about an hour to apply with my twitching eyelids and weak eyesight. So I was applying make-up with my glasses in the way or an inch from the mirror.
And I find the make-up is a bit too pink. I'll have to test if I can mix a little green in to darken the eyeshadow.
Anyways, here's that colored version of my design. What you can't see is the mesh material to poof up the skirt. It will be black of course.
And when it comes to the back, I'm still uncertain without physically testing it. The obi tied in the back needs to be strong if I intend it to hold that long ribbon. I figure the scroll I will make in cardboard and cover in material. Hold with safety pins to the obi?
The parasol I got has a little paint on the canvas, but I think I can cover it with my own design. Maybe.
What do you think?
