Effie Trinket @ A-kon 27

1,300 feathers, 100 butterflies, a lot of hot glue, and a million tears later I brought Effie Trinket to A-kon 27.

Things I want to fix

  • I want to put a huge zipper all the way up the back of the dress. The Velcro wasn’t as effective as I hoped it would be.
  • I want to put more feathers and butterflies on the back of the dress.
  • I need to make her hat.
  • I want a wig that has more volume and is a little bit longer.
  • Find a better adhesive for the butterflies. The hot glue was not doing its job.

Things that were perfect

  • The front of the dress
  • The shoes were comfortable and the exact style they needed to be
  • The gloves – comfortable and perfect
  • The make-up, it stayed on all day and looked awesome
  • The feathers, not a single one of the 1300 fell off!

 

Effie Trinket was a lot of fun to walk around in. She had a lot of positive reviews and people were astonished that I hand painted all of the feathers and butterflies on the dress. I think that once I fix the items listed above I will submit her in to a cosplay contest.

10/10 WILL do again.
