So I stayed up until 1:00am sticking jewels on my bra and then finished the cups after about an hour this morning. I also started adhering the feathers. This is what it looks like thus far:
I tried to make the cups look sort of firey. I was running out of yellows on the left cup and then found a bunch of them in another canister of jewels, so the right cup feels more flamesque.
I found the bra at the Goodwill for $2.99. I was hoping to find a sassy red bra, but the nude works. I can't decide whether or not to go full feather along the back straps. I think I definitely want to do a shoulder pad feather/jewel thing and a tail where the clasp on the back is.
I wish I had more little jewels to fill in the holes, but quite truthfully, I don't think my fingers can take much more glue-gunning. My left pointer is my jewel-sticker-onner-finger and it is blistering, but not so much that I need to call in the EMTs like on this week's Project Runway. Okay...back to feathering.
