I wanted to update on this outfit because it’s almost finished, finally :o) Many other things were sucking away my studio time this past week. All that is past now though (I hope anyway, tee hee!) This outfit was tricky and picky and fiddly but has surpassed my expectations! I just have a couple of finishing touches to put on it and then I will prep a newsletter and offer it up for sale.
Let’s back up a little, shall we? OK in truth it’s a bit of a leap from my last post, lol! I attached the bodice to the skirt and began deciding how the hair would drape and fall. I configured a hook and loop system for the back that looks great and works really well!
There’s a bit of a stylized braid, a silver bead and a long fall of hair that hangs to the floor!I spent days on her wig. It is insanely long and matches the golden tones in the skirt. The front half of this wig is glass pearls of varying sizes with decorative silver chain and silver sadi thread. I was going to trim it a little, but I think I will leave it long for the photo shoot and see how much fun it is to pose.
Here are a couple of softer looking pics…
The last things to finish are her shoes. I wanted them to have the same feel as the rest of the outfit. I didn’t want them to overpower this somewhat monochromatic ensemble. I’ve been doing that recently, Cold be time to mix it up a little, lol! Although ~Ember!~ certainly wasn’t afraid of colour!
I wanted transparent soles and I thought I might bead the straps. I decided I didn’t like the look of that and instead did a close toed glass pearled slip on. If only I knew how to make these for me! I would totally wear them :o)
One down one to go lol! And, here are both!
Just a few last little things and then the final reveal :o)Â As I mentioned at the top of the post, this OOAK ensemble will be offered for sale through my newsletter and offered publicly after that if there are no newsletter takers. Should be ready in a couple of days. As always, thanks for reading and have a wonderful evening!
