|Cost :||roughly £70 plus the Y5000 i spent on the velvet.|
|Time Taken :||3 weeks|
|Ruth's art project ... she's amazing. She's constructed this whole world and line of characters for it.|
I'm so so so happy I'm part of it, it's so exciting.
So yes .... I did some concepts while in Japan ... and this was my favourite so she won through ....
I also got left with a few metres of burgundy velvet that I just could not let go to waste: P
Finally it's all finished:) She's suffered a few minor alterations ... but I think it will do very well.
Photoshoot is over the weekend so pictures will follow:)
I'll do some more work on it when I have time .... like the utiity belt and weaponry.
|Skirt and bustle||High||Complete|
Woooo all done. (Posted 8th April 2010)
So, it's a little different from my original concept. But hey that's just the way it works.
So the shirt is more or less as described, but instead of a simple collar....i've gone for a one-shoulderm feathered ribbon. It looks good.
I decided against a bustle for the skirt, unless I can find an exact match to the velvet, anything else just doesn't look right, and to be honest the whole costume comes together quite well without it.
The jodhpurs were a nightmare....i wanted to do them in leather, but didn't have the time or resourses in the end, so they've turned into pinstripe trousers, which also didn't work very well.
It looks ok, sort of like a very short pair of drawers :P
The gloves ended up being black, but they sort of go because the choker and stomacher are more or less black.
The choker is genius, I found it in a cupboard, but it ties the black and burgandy together perfectly :)
So far... (Posted 30th March 2010)
I found some nice silk weave fabric that i'm going to do the shirt with. I might remake it later with something different but for the moment I quite like how it's turning out in this.
I've also decided to do pinstripe leggings/trousers...maybe more like 'hose' instead of jodhpurs to match the corset.
