I had two costumes because I had a lot of events to attend. Also I am really good at piling more work on myself for no good reason. 😛
1. Deer Spirit Thing
I am wearing the Gloomth’s “Sorrow” dress in chocolate brown. It was so exciting transforming into this autumnal creature with tiny antlers (which you might recognize from our other shoots) and leaves twined into it’s brown superlong locks!
I made the leaf headdress by treating leaves with modge-podge to make them less brittle and to preserve the color. I also added tiny pompoms (since googly eyes don’t go with leaves) and paper flowers and berries.
The “Sorrow” dress looks gorgeous in chocolate brown!
2. Glitter GuroTae Nurse Thing
My costumes tend to be these awesome ideas in my head but end up being just variations of clothes I wear normally. Case in point, I joke that I am GuroTae as anything with bandages or a big medical cross on it is bound to be pawed at by me. This costume blended my love for crazy wigs as well as medical whatnot and sequins!
The cincher is actually a steel boned antique medical corset I pinned red paint-splattered fabric to. I wore a vintage housecoat (of course) and just a white hand dyed dress I made a while back underneath. Everything in this costume consisted of pieces I already had.
Bandages and tassels and a little broken heart brooch I made. The eyepatch I made for a shoot a couple of years ago.
What did you dress up as?
