My latest creation

Since I haven't posted since I have been stamped I thought I would share my latest work. I was recently commissioned by a customer to make a gothic lolita-esque dress to resemble a dress worn by singer Mika Nakashima in her "Hi no Tori" video. It's one of the most elaborate egl/jpop/jrock type dresses I have made. Here's some pics (lots more pics behind the cut).

The original dress:








I used tulle instead of lace to cut my customer down on the costs (although I would love to do the real lace version). The finished dress consisted of an organza bodice with feather trim and bows on sleeves, a poly boned organza and leopard print cincher with lots of lacing trim, a mulitlayered and hand tattered tulle skirt with train with feathers added in, and a mini hoop skirt.


My version:
