Windblown Duchess by vickybunnyangel Windblown Duchess by vickybunnyangel
Character: Astharoshe Asran
Series: Trinity Blood
Variant: Special Edition DVD art evening dress
Photographed by Jack Liu [link]

Awarded Best in Class Workmanship and Presentation (Artisan division) at Otakuthon 2010, Montreal.

As I mentioned in a previous deviation, it was very windy during this shoot, so I had some difficulty with posing the costume the way I wanted, and the hat wanted to escape at times. From that turbluence came this magical photo that I love.

Alas I don't have 8 arms and can't control certain parts of the costume flipping up, but it looks more natural this way.

For workmanship details and to steal all my secrets please see [link] and [link]

I loved that you made the costume as a dress and jacket. Smart thinking right there! And everything just looks stunning! Clap

Very impressive cosplaying! I got feeling like: "I so wish I had something helpful to say because of these pics are so great but there's nothing to say because of they're so perfect" :D'

how'd you make the bodice/torso (don't know terminology ^^;) of your dress? I want to work on a dress cosplay of my own, although not this complicated XD

:iconvickybunnyangel:
vickybunnyangel Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
hmmm hard to describe. I kind of custom drafted a pattern using my dressform, but you can look for sewing patterns at fabricland and find one that closely resembles the silhouette you're looking to make. That would be the easiest thing to start off from

I'm sure you can find a prom dress/bridal pattern that will have a corset bodice ^_^. You can add the side flaps yourself

Beautiful execution and detailing on this costume! I'm very much amazed at your hard work, here.
Also, I think that the way the wind shifted your costume just adds another layer of beauty to it :)
