  Part of your World Minnie Mouse Veil   Posted by TuTu Factory on Thursday, 7 January 2016   I managed to take some new photos and two videos of our Minnie Mouse 'Part of your World' veil today.  It's just like our Happily Ever After Minnie Veil except that it's got pre-made soft ears instead of the hand made glitter fabric ears.

Monster Roar!

Behind The Scenes Costume Fancy Dress Jungle Katy Perry Madagascar Roar Roar Costume Tutorial

We have a saying at the Tutu Factory UK when Luby (the designer) creates something that everybody wants and we're working silly hours to get the 100s of orders out. "We've created a monster." And with the Roar costume we certainly did! If you've seen any of our other blogs you'll see we love Katy Perry. But we didn't actually purposely set out to make her Roar costume. A customer requested a custom order to create the roar tutu skirt and we later decided to make one with the flowers and then see if we could make a top to go with...
