I have been swamped busy lately... in any case.... Toad and I are going to the Repo/Devils carnival event next week. We are of course super stoked as we love love love love both movies. The nerdiness is overwhelming, I know.
And since we take any opportunity at all to wear weird stuff in public, we are going in costume. This is mine:
It's kind of a Maiden of Woe/Hell's Harlequin sort of thing, the skirt is from a steam punk outfit of mine and obviously the top is one of my any corsets. I need to pick jewelry still and my make up will have a white based face. I just didn't bother putting on full stage make up for the trial run. It's a pain to wash off. The costume isn't exactly like one of the maindens of woe, mostly because I don't generally own clothes with those kinds of prints on them. We are working on a bit of a time crunch to put something together. But I feel like it will go with the feel of the event and work fine.
In other news, the count down to this years masquerade ball has begun. We've already got our tickets for Saturday night and I think we will end up going Friday too. We'll see. Friday is steampunk night, so we want to do both. I've picked my costume for this year, but haven't started making it yet as the supplies are still en route to me.
I'm going as Wick from the Devil's carnival. This is her:
The waist cincher, corset boning to make the cage skirt and the gloves are on their way. I'm on a mission to find the bolero jacket now. Wish me luck on that, I'd rather not have to sew one. Gauzy fabrics are a huge pain.
