I wanted to share with you some detail photos of the looks I showed at the recent Otakon Fashion show. Please excuse the slightly off photos, I took these the night before I shipped them out, not the best lighting!
The first look to go out. If your familiar with my "work" previously to this blog, no your eyes do not deceive you, this isn't a new piece for the show. It's a dress I made last summer that was just too pretty to not end up on a runway.
I did edit it a bit, shortening the skirt lining and moving the ruffle up.
It's worn with a "peasant" style blouse I've been wanting to make for a while, a rose corsage, glass pearl choker, and a vintage hat that belonged to my great grandmother.
"Neptune's Domain" Jumperskirt
Of course many of you have already all see the "Neptune's Domain" jumperskirt. Here it is rather simply coordinated.
Since it's been released in late summer I decided to try for more of a fall coordinate with a long sleeved blouse.
The crown emblem pin/hairclip is pinned to a headband and is then pinned onto the skirt of the jsk since my dummy has no head. I originally wanted to pin the emblem to a blue beret for the fashion show, but no blue beret was to be found in the middle of summer!
The final look was the "Garden of Eden" dress. Cream lace paired with black velvet and cotton! Accented with some black gloves (which are kinda funny the way I pinned them here!), cream rose corsage, and another vintage hat from my Great Grandmother.
I have to say this cream lace is one of the most amazing fabrics I have ever bought! It's hard to show in photos the epicness of it! Flora and fauna arranged in a very William Morris way. Unicorns and stags, birds and squirrels, Adam and Eve themselves, and more!
Sadly I purchased it years ago, and not that much of it. I have enough after this one to make myself a dress.
This dress will be for sale in the couture section of my website as soon as I get it back
I want to thank Carla for organizing the show, my wonderful models for being so.... well wonderful! Also everyone else involved and those who attended.
Apologies to those who already read this on my blog =)
