The final Product of my Costume Production Class. The assignment was to faithfully reproduce an existing 19th century garment in comparable modern fabrics.
So, I decided that this would be a prime opportunity to create an entire look for my lovely girlfriend Re to be worn at DragonCon 2009 as my übergoth Christine.
The bodice, hat and dress itself is made of shadowstriped satin trimmed in hand pleated tartan striped red taffeta with a cotton leopard print lining (not pictured).
Distance prohibited her appearing in this Photoshoot, so my lovely model is Laurel Schultz, a fabulous fellow costume designer and Victorian Goth for a day.
