vhd - charlotte II by beautifully-twisted vhd - charlotte II by beautifully-twisted
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.

Thank you. I feel like I look very much not myself in all these shots. It's most likely the amber coloured contacts, however the wig's not helping.

Simply beautiful! Love Vampire Hunter D! :heart:

I love how well this came out, even though it does sound incredibly nerve wracking. >3

Would you ever consider selling it, over lighting it on fire?

I might consider selling it. I've never really thought about it. Usually the only costumes I sell are the ones that are in what I would consider perfect condition and I just view this thing as a nightmare.

Thank you for your kind words.
