I was invited to attend the European Premier of ‘Fast and Furious’ (the fourth part of the series) and had to make a proper dress (or rather, costume!) for that occasion.

So I took some yards of white silk satin and painted the cars from the previous parts to it, using some sort of wax crayons which are suitable for painting on silk (and, after ironing, are even colorfast and washable):

I then used regular silk paint in quite a few shades of blue and added outlines (aka ‘racing stripes’) with black outline paint and color to the single pattern pieces, because the last thing I wanted was a *white* dress…:

And here’s what the dress looked like when finished:

Here’s myself wearing the dress at the European premier in Bochum:

And here are some more of my pics of the Fast and Furious premiere – of Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez and Jordanna Brewster, to be precise. If you look really close, you’ll spot me in quite a few of these pics 🙂
