both the dresses are pretty, but the second dress is the prettiest to me. i love it, all the lace and tulle. will bite my tongue now.
seems i remember that costume, it was very nice, but if possible could you post a picture so the others can see. this way they can visualize the resultsFor my Corpse Bride costume I used spray paint to change the color of the fabirc. I used black and gray in a light mist from a distance to dirty it up and blue to get the embroidered design in it. I didn't have to do any dirtying up of it because the paints did such a good job. With that method you can control if you want parts of it (like where it touches the ground) darker and dirtier than others.
