Costume Information

Cost : 1.99
Time Taken : Approx 6 hrs

First worn at Aya Revolution 2009. Sadly the legpiece broke.

The basic premise for my Steampunk Universe: 'A Gentleman's Adventures?' is the adventures of the ragtag crew and cargo of the 'Ruby Tuesday'.

Rhodopis is a Model 5 Automated Hetaera, but something went a little wrong with her clockwork and has evolved a personality outwith the 5-options advertised in the catalogue. As such, she doesn't want to be a "Coin-Operated Companion" anymore and is rescued from the scrapheap by Captain Rosedale.

This was a dye and paint effect project of sorts. The top was stained with coffee and the skirt was a number of layers of muslin dyed using a variety of natural plant dyes. Gun was a modded waterpistol and the neckpiece was painted craftfoam.
