For a long time I dreamt of a costume with a corset vest, similar to the one of Èowyn. And this is what I managed to create.
This dress is inspired by the dress of the fallen star in Stardust. The pattern is princess seams combined with raglan sleeves. It has no closure and is very comfortable to wear. I am not sure about the fabric, but I think it could be silk (it was a piece of fabric bought in a second hand store).Continue reading
The pattern is a year 1974 nightdress. The fabric is stretchy and the neckline is decorated with a lace. The same lace is used for the belt.Continue reading
This had to be a costume for a steampunk vampire. But the makeup looked better without the bloodred lipstick I have planned. So I ended up as a steampunk corpse :D.
The brocade is the only new material on this costume. The velvet bodice was a secondhand trousers and the satin uunderskirt was a secondhand bed-clothes.Continue reading
I made this dress when I needed a costume for SlavCon, being in the 7th month of pregnancy. It is a long yellow underdress and a shorter short-sleeved overdress decorated with woven bands. The belt is tabletwoven.
This dress is inspired by Arwen’s gown, in which we see her for the first time in the Fellowship Of The Ring. It is two parts – a lined undergown with bell sleeves and a split-in-front-overdress with long open sleeves. The neckline ist decorated with a silver trim and beaded with precious stones.
The dress is competed with a circlet and earrings of precious stones.
In the pictures I am in the 5th month of pregnancy with our second daughter :).
The dark green dress is two parts. The upper part without any closing and a lined semicircular skirt.
The yellow-green dress is one part, also without closing, witha a boat neckline. It is completed with a wide belt.
Both dresses are made of ellastic velvet.
Two versions of a dress with an almost empire style waistline and a semicircular skirt. The first dress has a collar and a belt of crinkled satin. The second has the neckline decorated with damask and a trim. None of the dresses needs a closing, because the fabric is elastic.
Both dresses are LOTR-inspired.
I wear this costume occasionaly in normal life too. It consists of a linen semicircular skirt and a flannel tunnic. The tunnic is embroidered with horse heads (my own design) and a pattern from a rohan cloak from the LOTR movie. The embroidery is trimmed with woven bands in wool and linen. The dress is completed with a woolen woven belt and a linen shoulder bag. I used the cloak from my ranger costume.
Later I have made costumes also for my family to go together on various events. The man’s dress consists of an undertunic, trousers and overtunic from linen and a woolen surcoat. The tunics are embroidered with horse patterns, the surcoat is decorated with tablet-vowen trim. The dauhgter’s dress is of flannel.
A green version of Eowyn’s Victory gown. Unlike the original it has a lacing in the back instead of a zipper. In the front the neckline is closed with sweetwater pearls. The fabric is 100% cotton damask.Continue reading
