I love sci-fi and fantasy but it is no secret that Star Wars was/is my first love. So I was super excited to make and wear this costume.
Costume – a handpainted white corset, a white bustle skirt, a blue wig, and an r2d2 (or artoo) hair piece. I painted the corset and made the bustle skirt (my first one!)
I started with a plain white corset and hand painted the front to resemble the front of R2D2. I then did some research into bustle skirts. I decided I wanted the draped look for the front with the bustled back. I didn’t use a pattern but I did find this video useful. I used the top off of an R2D2 bubble bath to make the hair piece.
