Well, I bought more hair and braided it, it's a lighter color and smaller. And most of the things have either been corrected or changed. The leather tie in the front of the dress has been darkened, but now I'm concerned it's too dark, and I don't have anymore of it. Other than glueing the small ones together to make a thicker strip for that part, I don't know what else will work.

The part I'm struggling with the most is the lack of material to fix the front of t he skirt. I've got ideas but not sure it'll fly. I bought some that is similar coloring (a lighter tan) and attempting to use some leather dye to darken it a bit, but if that doesn't work, I'm out of ideas.

EDIT:

So, we changed the front of the skirt. Not exactly the way I'd prefer to have done it, but it's done (Wished I had more of the original material!!!). I will post pictures again tomorrow afternoon.

You have worked hard on this and have listened to feedback, which is really important when making a costume. Smile And it shows in how this has progressed.
