Finally got to do a proper photoshoot in the costume at AUSA 2009.

Costume is constructed from 7 yards of $30 a yard ivory silk crepe fabric and 4 yards of gold textured fabric. Bodice is steel boned and reinforced with an inner layer of canvas. Ivory & gold braided trim was hand sewn onto the bodice and sleeves and accented with freshwater pearls.

I can say that this was the most stressful costume I've constructed not due to really difficulty level but time constraints and a few trial & error mishaps. I contemplated setting fire to it before doing this photoshoot. Thus said, part of me absolutely loathes this costume.
