Costume Information

Cost : £300
Time Taken : 4 months

This was my first complete victorian replication,although it is not a historically accurate as i wanted to look more fantasy than historical.
the bodice and skirts are made from either a self red stripe curtain fabric or a heavy two tone taffeta. Buttons on bodice are faux jet. Black Venetian and cotton lace trims finish it off...for now. I plan to add more black trim and pleating to the gown especially the skirt and lengthen the bustle with a train.

My character is quite evil, although i seem rather friendly in these photos...its deceptive haha.

i first wore this at Whitby Goth Weekend in April this year. Next planned wear is LFCC depending on weather.

Wow... I can't wait to see this, it looks incredible! I'm also cosplaying a steampunk outfit on Saturday, but it's nowhere near as amazing as this! The dress is so beautiful XD
