The Boozy Bridal Party

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
I start by saying sorry that I have not been hopping all over as normal to leave comments on all of your beautiful work, and promise to resolve this shortly.

Today I would like to introduce you to the Boozy Groom for the Wedding Party - and if you have not been following the Boozy Party then I will link to the creations I posted.

So here without to much pomp and ceremony is the Boozy Groom
This creation is made from gun metal grey pearlescent card available at the Hobby House.  This Top Hat and Tails is fully removable from the bottle, as you just cannot stop some people and would I want too.  This is the red bottle of wine.  A round sleeve was created around the bottle, followed by a square trouser frame.  The split in the trousers created with a black copic line up the centre and also up the back.  The jacket was cut to the same with and then a small nestie used to create a circle opening for the bottle neck.  The edges were snipped at small intervals to allow it to curve and be glued to a large oval nestie.  This and the jacket were cut to shape to show the front of the jacket and also the tails on the reverse.  The neckline was also cut, maintaining a line of symmetry.  The cumber-band (think that is what you call it) is burgundy ribbon wrapped twice around the trouser square to fit snuggly under the jacket.  The arms were freehand drawn and glued in place.  The lace was added for the cuffs and collar.   Tiny black pearls added for the buttons on the cuffs, jacket front and two at the top of the tails on the back.  A small burgundy flower and one single textured leaf added for his pocket and a small burgundy bow for his tie.  The hat is made from two nestie circles and a strip for the height, carefully held in place with a bead of silicone glue.  The ribbon wraps around the hat with three small pearls at the join.  Think that about covers it.

Here is the bridge and groom together
