Okay, that horizontal shaped line? Weird because there is a similar thing going on with the bottom heart of the Pink Diamonds costume. I figured in that case it was something to do with reducing the rigidity and allowing it to flex with the high kicks.
Also those flat oval chain beads? Do you know how hard it is to find???? I am going to have to dye some of the pale green stuff. And it will wind up looking more and more US than Aus… but I don’t care, they are super light and unlikely i.e. impossible) to break and scatter across the floor.
I have seen chain gold cord like that, but about half the thickness, darnit!
do you mean the red, silver and green bead chains? They look like xmas bead decorations i’ve seen before.
Try finding them to buy. Here it is all round beads, maybe round facetted. The closest I’ve found are beaded door curtains. In pale pink, pale green/aqua and pale purple.There are some flat chain bead decorations but they are hollow on the reverse and intended for being seen only on one side.
Some other costumes use a red, gold and green metallic repeat (round faceted)
I tried ebay too, part of the problem is trawling through a billion bead chain/plastic bead string/ bead curtain, bead decorations on ebay/bulk order places because those are some wide ranging search terms.
My beads can be seen in my bucket of goodies: (arg! The new theme doesn’t do posts by date, sigh, might find it in one of the theme functions)
They are oval but with a long side facet and a wider space between the oval and round beads. But they will dye nicely with the Kelly green iDyePoly. Hopefully. Pretty sure they will. I will hunt out the pink/purple ones and dye them red if possible too. The gold/silver I’m just SOOL if I don’t use the flat trim. Woot! Same shape as mine:

It’s also very hard to find soft gold ribbon. I want to do this again:

I can keep an eye out for them here. I used to have some bead necklaces that were those beads! If i can find them ill send you them!
