I don’t know why Halloween makes me long for Renaissance fashion. I did a Borgias-inspired gown last year, and I wasn’t entirely satisfied with it – for one thing, it wasn’t very Halloween-y; it was pink and blue. I tried really hard to resist temptation to even make a Halloween costume this year, because I’m really behind on other projects as it is, but I gave in and started on one this week. Here are some preemptive pics of the almost-finished product.
I’ll cover the construction in the next post, but it basically went the same as my costume from last year. The first two pics are before the sleeves went on, and I threw on my Ever After chemise underneath just to see how it looked (it was a tight squeeze, too.) I’ve got some finishing touches to get done tonight – more trim and more pearls on the sleeves – but it’s essentially finished! Not bad for ~3 days of work.
