how I did the costume :
I did the leaf pattern with textil paint. I bought a light green fabric (cotton) and then I used 2 kind of painting technics, one was a spray and the other one was a pen, I also bought about 90 dollars of small plastic jewels I stuck all over the fabric.
I got a short blond wig on ebay and styled it .I sewed a hair bun on top of it that I also found on ebay .
I did the wings with thin wire . I fixed the different parts with glue only, after that I added an iridescent fabric on one side of the wings that I stuck over the edges.
I bought a pair of light green ballerinas shoes I painted the same way that for the dress.
I know my description sounds not detailed enough but it is hard for me to find the right words in english to describe how I did everything.
However you can still find tutorials on
gallery. She did a tinkerbell wig and tinkerbell wings almost the same way I did mines and they look really great. So if you want to make your own costume, make sure to ckeck her tutorials^^
