Information

Yet another Queen!!

Kimono made from grey silk dupion and lined with a smooth satin lining. The middle fabric is a fantastic chainmail-effect viscose and the burgundy underskirt is a crinkly taffeta.

The underneath is made on a grey teeshirt base with insert collars and skirts, This cuts down on weight and fabric cost. Also, I could not wear 3 heavy layers at Expo - I would die of heat!

Headdress is part card and part lace doily, and hundreds of beads. If I never see another bead I will be quite happy.

Hair is two cheap black witch wigs ( yep, you guessed - ebay), you can find details on my Deviant Art account (Deviant-Mutha) on how it was made.
