  1. Hi all! I was comissioned by Lorilei to make the KOTRII Visas Marr, which I'm really excited about doing. I've made the Unseen, Unheard version and am an approved member with that version, but I've never actually made the KOTR II Version. Browsing on here, I had a few questions about the color Red needed for the dress. When I see the word "Dark Red", I personally think like Crimson or Dried Blood kind of red, but I was noticing some of the pictures on here seem almost like just red. So I have a couple of fabrics swatches to compare. First is the 4 swatches without flash and with flash. No Flash without flash by Tabitha McCurdy, on Flickr With Flash with flash by Tabitha McCurdy, on Flickr Personally, I like swatch 3. The feel and weight of it are really nice (I almost want to switch over it completely for all my Visas Marr comissions). But I'm not sure on the color. I almost think the color of Swatch 4 is better. I make this outfit regularly, but like I said, I usually do the Unseen Unheard version, so the fabric I have in stock for the sash is kind of a dark red. The follow pics compare the samples I like to the sash fabric I have on hand. Without Flash sash without flash by Tabitha McCurdy, on Flickr With Flash sash with flash by Tabitha McCurdy, on Flickr Again, I'm kinda of leaning toward swatch 3, but I think 4 would propbably be the best. Thank you so much for your opinions!
  2. I have not dealt with them before, but as a costumer who makes Visas Marr to sell, I find it questionable. According to them, as of January, they hadn't made the outfit, plus only $200 seems low to me. With how much work that has to be done to make this costume accurate, plus the material costs, that price is low. This is just my opinion, but I would be careful.

  3. Would a vinyl transfer look good on the overdress? I hand paint the trim on the underdress, but the overdress is the one that is challenging me. Sent from my RCT6773W42B using Tapatalk
  4. So I recently moved from Sunny Arizona (where there were almost no concerns about spray painting other then it being too windy or raining) to New York and now have a Visas Marr dress I'm trying to paint in the winter and I'm so not sure how to do this! Has anyone else spray painted or sponged or other wise painted a dress in the winter? Do you have any tips?
  5. Got new samples! The top sample is the original-would-have-been-perfect sample that the company no longer carrys. So we have: With Flash: 1. Poplin in Merlot 2. Broadcloth in Burgundy and 3. Charmuse in Burgundy The Same without Flash: Personally, I kinda want to do 3, but my next thought is the lightness of the fabric. I do plan on lining the sleeves and veil, so it probably is less of a problem then I think it is. So I kinda debate between 3 and 2. The advantage of 2 is that it is made of cotton and that would be much more breathable under the vinyl overdress. Thoughts?
  6. So I bought the Burgendy crepe fabric and was so excited for it, only to get a very nice call from Fabric Direct, informing me that they have discontinued the Crepe in Burgendy! So back to the drawing board! I ordered a whole bunch of samples from them again, of different fabrics (I'm still hopeful to get fabric from them). I'm also heading to Joann's tomorrow to get 2" slices of several fabrics that I liked from them. Crossing my fingers that SOMETHING will work . I need to make a selection soon. I want this costume by early March, so I need to get chopping on this!
  7. I am working on a Visas Marr costume and I usually buy my fabric from Joann's, but the crepe back satin I usually buy has been out of stock for months and I have a sneaky suspion that they are phasing out the wine color that works PERFECTLY for this costume. So I'm sourcing different fabric and need some advice about the colors. These are from Fabric Directs. First is Poplin in Burgendy, Second is Polyester Crepe in Burgendy and Third is Crepe Back Satin in Fuschia. 1. With Flash 2. Without Flash 3. Close up With Flash 4. Without I personally lean toward Second (the middle one). Clearly, the Third is too bright, so for me, it is a tie between the other two. Thoughts?
