Some more photos of my prom outfit (+ bonus kitty)
On today’s agenda: Kisa learns how to lace a steel-boned corset. o.o
Above photo is the lace it originally came with, which was not long enough. Bottom picture is of the corset de-laced and with the new, much longer lace bunched up.
Now, I will be watching endless Youtube tutorials to do this right. o.o
In addition to exhibiting at Anime Expo, I was able to attend the Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball last weekend and show off my costumes I’ve been slaving over for months.
Our masks were designed by Merimask, mine being the very first in her rabbit series as a custom request (and I believe the only pink one to date).
For the costumes, I made:
-My corset vest, with brown tweed front, chocolate and black damask back, faux leather tabs, steel boning, busk closure, and bias trim.
-My 5-tier bustle skirt made with peach crepe satin and double-tiered black lace trim.
-My tophat styled with pale orange roses and freesias, peach ribbon, and black lace.
-My husband’s waistcoat with gray tweed front, striped lining and back, full lapels, bound buttonholes, single-welt fully lined pockets, belted tie, and fox-head buttons.
-My husband’s 1860’s inspired tailcoat with teal silk lapels, pleated tails, silk lining, and fox-head button details.
-My husband’s cravat made of teal floral brocade.
-The matching boutonnière with teal rosebuds.
-And I dyed and fitted his tuxedo shirt with French seams.
The ball was marvelous, as expected, full of gorgeous costume eye-candy far as one could see. A must for any lover of fantasy.
Blurry corset pic but it came in!!! The OC 426 in Blue brocade. I have a 7” gap in the back which is expected with this corset according to OC. So we shall see…
I have a 325 as well but it might be returned since its a single bone.
Think I may have just found my new favorite outfit for stealth seasoning (and then waist training)!
