Costume Information

Description
This cosplay has been slowly forming in my mind for a while. I love the fashion style of Moulin Rouge and Burlesque and wanted to do something with a pretty corset and bustle etc. So when Tab invited me to perform in a song dance skit for Kitacon I jumped at it. So this is for the Sunday Omake event. ^_^



Character Background
Lily is a dancing girl/stage performer. (Real name Lydia Strangeway). Her signature colour is pink, eg corset detail pink, head dress pink etc - hence her stage name Lily "the Pink".


--------------------------------------------
update: Apr 2011
Kita was Fab. Performing the two skits was such a lot of fun. Fortunately I remembered all the choreograhy. ^_^
Didnt have time make all the alterations I wanted to the custome. So next time Lily performs her costume will be slightly different. ;)

Oooo! Very interesting. Love the character design. Can't wait to see pics/video. Sadly, I won't get to see this in person as I'm not going to Kita III but looking forward to this.

Ryuk, Oh dear! Yes, Steampunk elements. Ummmmmmm
:D
...Urrrrrrrr...

Did I say Steampunk?...

Well. The thing is, this is Lilys dancing girl stage costume, so theres not really much to it. ^_^ Im hoping I can accesorise to give it a Steampunk look. Really I need to do a day wear steampunk costume too, then I could go to town on costume design and weapons. Im feeling a different character for that though. Lily is too much of a fun time girl to be going off on dangerous sky raiding sorties. Although, she is quite handy with a blunderbuss when she needs to be. :D

Thanks guys ^_^ glad you like the pics.

Adamoluna - Yep Ruffle knickers were great, except I realised they were not covering much at the back! so I wore another pair of knickers underneath otherwise my bum would have been out on display. :p

Tab - Likewise. :) More pics coming in, some great ones of us all on stage...

ruffle knickers (Posted 20th March 2011)

Ruffle knickers are just Made for an outfit like this. ^_^ Theyre so cute.
A bit cheeky at the back! thank goodness for the bustle. :P

stockings (Posted 20th March 2011)

These are the stockings I bought. I Love those vertical stripes, theyre so dancing girl and period looking! And they match with the stripe detail on the corset. Of course they will need straps to hold them up..so I will add some anchor points for suspender straps on the bottom of the corset.

corset (Posted 20th March 2011)

This is the base corset I bought..might add some more pink detailing to it.

Buying bits - arm gloves (Posted 20th March 2011)

Lace arm gloves arrived today, woohoo. Theyre gorgeous floral lace full length. And the lace is stretchy so a wonderfull snug fit. Intending to make some pink bows for them to match with the corset.
