1883 Harper's Bazar gown, scaled from an original sheet, extant hat, and four kinds of pleating. Train detaches for walking length.. those Victorians designers were geniuses! There's a bridal version of this on my cutting table to finish, too.
Final load out bright and early tomorrow. Right now, I'm a column of soreness from the waist down, but I'm in a good place.
Second year on our own, and things were much smoother than last year. There are still many things we could do better, and we will strive to, but we also DID better.
This year was my training year as Heir Apparent to the Logistics Department, which would have been more daunting were it not for the fact that I have the support of a crew that is so fantastically competent, hard working, professional, and welcoming.
Without your dedication and passion, this Con's load in and load out would not operate nearly as smoothly as it does. I look forward to future years working with the Henchineers Union of Clockwork Alchemy.
I spent the weekend @clockworkalchemy and I failed to take photos! There were just too many great costumes, dancers, and characters to capture. So, here are some pictures of my legs. If you took photos I'd love to see them!
Clockwork Alchemy 2019 Day 3 was our steampunk mashup day, with gear makeup, owl earrings and ring, my original leather bodice I made 10 years ago, plus a hat & cuffs from Party City Halloween shopping with my own feathers added and more teal, even a new wig I found on Halloween clearance! Glen wore his new bowler hat with black goggles with purple accents that matched his vest & cravat. More compliments on our outfits today, even at lunch afterwards down the street when everyone kept asking why we were dressed up, so we spread the word of steampunk to several new people. ;) Session details with photos & videos are over on Facebook. Thanks to the Clockwork Alchemy crew for another fabulous event! Until next year! #steampunk#ClockworkAlchemy#ClockworkAlchemy2019#cosplay#victoriana#brassgoggles#feathers#fascinator#leatherwork#leatherbodice#tealhair#FiftyShadesOfTeal
Today is my first day back out in the real world since surgery several weeks ago. Look, I love my nighties as well as the next ladythug, but there’s something to be said about putting on those Sunday clothes and feeling a little bit like yourself again. Except better. 🎩
