Let's start from the inside and work our way out...
The skirt with all its many yards of pleating on the bottom.
The jacket (before the fabric stamping.... still need to photograph that).
The hat, shawlette, sock, shoes.... and Ruby.
A closer view of the hat, shawlette, and necklace.
A close up of the front and buttons.
Here's all that pleating I had to do.
And the shawlette after being blocked. It's called "The Age of Brass and Steam Shawlette".
It will get its first wearing next Thursday, October 27th at Trauma - one of the largest Halloween parties of the year here in Columbus. I will have to figure out how to get a picture of me in it because they don't allow cameras at the event, only the official photographers who don't know an awesome costume when they see one and only photograph the "sexy" costumes (it was really hard not to use the word "whores" there).
