|Time Taken :||2 days|
|I've been a fan of this version of Hamlet for a long time, and the play is one of my favorites, so this is basically a simple costume I can put together as an homage to it.|
Emma's designs for the Manga shakespeare version of Hamlet are really unique and beautiful so I look forward to playing with the combination of cyber elements (and armour plates stuck to the skin) and the flowing dress that Ophelia wears.
Most of this costume is being peiced togther from leftover peices of the Odette (Swan Princess) costume I made years ago, which will make up the wig and the lining for the dress. The rest is being made from other scraps of fabric I have lying around from old costumes, making it probably a 100% recycled costume. yay free!
Wore this to Kita4 as a last minute throw togther. Quite proud of it though, as my lipstick matched my nail polish perfectly in the same way hers does in the colour reference,
