Awesome Cosplay outfit. I love what you did with the colors. If you are not a member of the #FF-Cosplay group [link] consider this an inviatation. I happen to be a Contributor for the group and I'm looking for talented Deviant Artists like yourself to join this growing group. Thanks for sharing your photo and credit definiately goes to your photographer as well.
Oh, about big things happening. I have some ideas in mind personally. I plan on sharing them with the Cofounders of the group soon. I just need time to develope them like trivia contests, fun polls etc.
I died the whole piece of cloth... first the purple, but I didn't put the dress in whole lenght in the coloured water. for the blue I dipped just the end that was still white in, so it absorbed the colour a bit further than the actual line where it was dipped in. Important is that you take cloth which is easily dyed, for mine I took some sort of cotton stretch.
