|Heidi preparing the fabric.|
|Transparenty fabric Heidi got along with the gold material.|
The translucent shawl was draped around the skirt to give it a more "layered" feel. Eventually, we'll have the enter of the shawl pull upwards toward Consuelo's stomach so it creates a curtain-like shape, bringing attention to the dress.
Aside from the dress itself, we decided to go with a tube top for Consuelo, along with two small sleeve armbands. Annie made the armbands to resemble the small sleeves of Disney princesss Belle.
|Our dress resembles that of Belle's, except for the fact that the Chameleon Suit is pimped out with motors and LED lights, making it a far more technologically advanced dress than Belle's ^__^|
Once the dress-to-skirt conversion completes, LED lights embedded within the armbands will light up.
Consuelo also found a tiara to go nicely with the dress, so I took the liberty of putting in LED lights into the empty spaces in the tiara as well XD.
|Each armband is embedded with 7 yellow LED lights, which are powered by two AA batteries.|
|Although not super bright, they add a nice touch to the dress!|
|Because we ran out of yellow LED lights, and I might be somewhat color blind, I thought these green LEDs looked awfully yellow, so I put them into the tiara...but they turned out nice!|
In the end, our pimped out convertible Disney princess dress looks like...*drum roll*
