Picture Post O'Doom

Hey egl!

This past weekend was Tekkoshocon, a local convention here in Pittsburgh, and I thought I'd share some pictures of the outfits I made for myself and my friends. Be warned, they are quite numerous

A while back i posted a rough sketch of an outfit to wear with my gorgeous corset from Azrael's Accomplice. Well, here's the finished product!


Please excuse my lazur-chargin red eyes in most of the pictures...my camera's uber-flash-o'doom likes to do that to people. >.>;;




CHARGIN MAH LAZURS.


The back. Oh, how I love this corset. It needed to be tightened here...i can actually lace it all the way. I  probably should have ordered a smaller size...but my waist is 22" with this thing on! Bitchin'. XD


R U TOUCHIN MAH BRANDZ? (Please ignore the half-naked man in the background. >.>)

Whee, outdoor pictures! Finally, no red-eye!

Too bad the photographer sucked at not leaving 20934842039840234 feet of empty space above my head XD





Outfit rundown:
Blouse: Me
Skirt: Me
Petticoat: Me
Bloomers: Me
Hairbow: Me
Corset: Azrael's Accomplice
Tote Bag:  Metamorphose
Shoes: Demonia

Friday night I led a panel called "DIY Lolita", where I showed people how to do simple things like make hairbows, modify blouses, paint shoes, and whatnot. I think it went pretty well. My friend knightsabernene wanted to be lolified, so I dressed her up and brought her along as an example. ^_^


Lolis rawk at Guitar Hero. XD


I think this is my favorite picture of the whole weekend. XD

Saturday was the Japanese Street Fashion panel and fashion show, and I showed three of my designs.

Me with my lovely models, p1nkr3qu13m and knightsabernene.

knightsabernene:

I'M IN UR PANEL, TOUCHIN UR BRANDZ


Isn't she adorable? ^_^

knightsabernene's outfit:
Dress: Me
Socks: offbrand
Shoes: payless ($10! I love clearance!)

And the adorable p1nkr3qu13m:

She saw this fabric on one of my routine Joann's trips and immediately said "OMG! i NEED A DRESS MADE OUT OF THIS!"


She's the cutest evar. You can't see very well in these photos, but the dress and headdress have little red gingham bows with strawberry buttons that match the print on the dress perfectly ^_^

p1nkr3qu13m's outfit:
Dress, headdress, petticoat: Me
Socks, purse: Target
Shoes: Payless

Aaaaaaaaand me,  youve seen this dress before but I love it <33







lolz.


Myself and the lovely xchibiusadax. She's sooooooo freaking cute. XD


Unfortunately i forget this girl's name, but she's so abominably cute in Metamorphose.


pocky_pirate, cutest soundboard technician ever.


xchibiusadax, who wins for mixing brand and Wal-mart. XD

I went in a more punk direction with my Sunday outfit. Remember my crazy fleur-de-lys print? Idecided it was more suited to a punkish outfit than a lolita one. So here's what I cameup with:



The skirt has a nifty asymmetrical hem accented with chains and grommet-tape. I think it came out pretty cool. The shirt I got on clearance at Rave ($1 !!!!!) and did the embroidery myself. I don't have an embroidery machine, so I just used a reeeeeeeeally close-together zigzag stitch on my regular machine and traced the pattern by hand-it's silver thread, so it's all cool and shiny. It's a pretty big pain, but came out looking really cool. (I made a coordinating shirt for my boyfriend, sadistic_apollo, for our panel at Anime USA. His came out way better than mine. XD)


So, there you have it, kids! I hope you like.

THere are more pictures (including some very very silly ones) in my personal journal as well.

As always, a reminder that I do take comissions, and you can email tesseract.fashion (at) gmail.com if you're interested.
