|About this Costume: Caplet, Bows, and skirt made by - Me (I did not make the shirt)|
Bow Ring made by- Stephanie Son and Ann Mendenhall
The butterfly on the back of the cape is designed and cut out by me. Then I hand-sewed it on after centering it perfectly. To prevent fraying I use a fabric glue so that the finished design looked more neat. The lining of the skirt is black and the outside is the butterfly pattern. The caplet is just the opposite with the inside being the pattern. Orginally, I wanted to put the two large bows in my hair on each side. After seeing how it looked I decided to move them around a little to come up with a better solution.
Why I made this costume: I wanted to make this outfit so that I would have a variety of lolita clothing to wear at my artist tables. I choose butterflies because they are a big inspiration to a lot of my work including my animations. I wanted to use this particular outfit to promote my new line of caplets and skirts I wil be making. I plan to make many more lolita outfits in the future.
