Amari (Songbird) Dir Roche (Steampunk version) - The Ballad of Zephyr Stormchaser (Original creation)




Steampunk version of one the charecters from my story. I've decided to go for a steam punk version because a) I like steam punk and b) the charecter's actual costume is quite boring :)

oouu looks really pretty so far. Has a Moulin Rouge feel. *loves Moulin Rouge* Have you made a design sketch for the whole costume, I'd love to see. :)

I did, but it's not very good, and the costume's deviated away from it some-what. I do now have bells attached to the skirt, which is very cool :)

I'll just have to wait for you to model it then. ^_^

Oh Wow, the finished costume looks beautiful on you. Great photo shoot too - you look like a screen godess! ^_^ Well done, cuz this is your own design and it suits you so well. I think this is my new favourite of yours. ^_^ btw is that your own hair? red really suits you. :)

Ah steampunk!!! Something I know more than a little about lol you look fantastic and hooray for sub costumes for own characters :)

Heh, the actual costumes are fairly dull, I had a lot more fun making this. Bells! Bells everywhere! Jangle jangle jangle :)

Your Steampunk costumes really suited you and Joe. loved the roughly coat on Amari, kinda adventuresome while still being a little decadent.

Thanks Ailsa, you mean congrats on 'our' win ^_^ as I said to Leena I couldn't have done it without you guys. I managed to see a vid of us on youtube yesterday so I could see what you were doing behind me during our performance. You were brill magicians assistants, especially as I hadn't given you guys any rehearsal. (I won't leave things that late ever again.) Shame I couldn't use the large illusion in the end, (left in the car because of time) but still it was a lot of fun up there together, and best of all people loved what we brought to the show. Winning was the icing and cherry on top. :D Thank you again for saying yes and doing this with me. Your costume looked great on stage. Maybe I'll make a top hat that you can keep, one that fits you comfortably, as a thank you. ^_^ btw my snaps of you and Joe on Sun turned out great - I just need to upload them into photobucket. :)

Missing twin pistols, and suitable boots, but these are not major things. Just means I have something to work on between now and Minami when I rewear.

Design for back of jacket.

How do you stitch chain :)

26th April 2009

Step one done

I've largely made Amari's jacket. I need to put some stitches in to hold the lapels in place, and sort out the bottom. But a good start on a costume I really shouldn't be doing until I've finished Amy!
