I spent today shopping for materials for my costumes. The first place I went to was a local haberdashery where I was able to by several meters of black lace and chiffon for a very reasonable price. These will act as the main body of my female costume. Unfortunately despite the local haberdashery's affordable prices it was very limited in it's stock causing me to have to look for the rest of my materials else where. However I did not wish to buy the rest of my materials from an alternative haberdashery as I wanted my costumes to be as sustainable as possible. Therefore I bought red felt and a silk red dress from a charity shop with the intention to deconstruct and reconstruct them for my final costume along with an old pair of black leggings and a black long sleeved shirt I own.
