Complete: Elizabeth Swann!
I finished at 3 a.m. the night before we left for Dragon*con. And to be honest (shh, don’t tell!), I didn’t put all the pieces on together until I went down for the contest.
This picture is actually from Sunday. Friday for the costume contest, I straightened my hair, which worked pretty well to replicate the texture of Keira Knightley’s hair in the movie. I also got caught in a bit of rain and considered staying out there for a really authentic look, but then I thought better of it.
I’m really pretty happy with how it turned out, and I won Best Use of Materials at Dragon*con’s Friday Night Costuming Contest. Next weekend I’m planning to go take more pictures of it out on the beach.
