Portal Companion Cube Dress

So here's what has been taking up all my spare time the last couple of weeks! My local Lolita group have been planning a themed fandom/geek meet for a while and it finally came around last weekend. I decided that I wanted to make a dress based on the companion cube from the Portal video games. It took a bit longer than I expected, I had to draft a new bodice block, but it was so worth it. I love it!!

And the meet was so much fun, everyone put loads of effort into their outfits, I loved seeing them all. I hope we'll have another fandom meet one day, I already have more ideas. Here's me wearing my dress.

I learnt a bunch of new techniques making this too - box pleats, encased shirring, modifying my basic bodice block. Usually I'm fed up with sewing after finish a project (probably because I usually leave things too late and end up having to rush *stress*) but not this time! I cant wait to do more.
