In point of fact, there's not really much construction involved in this costume; I bought every piece and then altered a few of them. And there are a ridiculous number of pieces to this costume! I use little ziploc baggies to keep track of all the jewelry. Here's a rundown of where I
bought everything, from head to toe :
Wig: the Anne wig wig in Golden Brown from Cosworx, trimmed down substantially. I really wanted a slightly lighter color, but the only blonder option was super-blonde, which wasn't right either.
Hairbow: a length of red lace fabric from Jo-Ann
Pearls: Charlotte Russe
Black-and-silver beads: The Icing
Chain necklace: The Icing
Dogtags: My own
White shirt: Wal-Mart
Denim jacket: Ebay, embellished with fabric paint and 20SS heat-fix rhinestones from The Rhinestone Guy (3 gross, plus another 75 or so smaller ones I had on hand). I attach my rhinestones by placing them upside-down on a hot plate until the glue melts and bubbles, then using tweezers to quickly press them into place. It's about a million times faster than using those one-at-a-time applicators.
Jelly bracelets (black and multicolored): Wal-Mart and Ebay
Black bangle: H&M
Yellow beads: Claire's
Belt: The Icing; I added the X shapes with white yarn and a tapestry needle
