An old picture from an "old" dress I made in February 2010
... And a year after I'm still updating the dress thanks to Seva's kind advice and Xounet's encouragements when I was really down
hopefully it should be completed soon now!
Thus the dress was inspired by Esther's purple ballgown, but was absolutely not finished at the time
I just used the corset, sleeves and upper skirt for the Cosplay Ball.
The corset was my first attempt as a corset ever. As Lewis Carroll said: "Experience is a brutal teacher, but you learn. My God, do you learn." It was brutal. Hard. And I learned
Oh and I'm holding my hand that way because 2 days before the ball, I emptied a kettle *on my hand* instead of the water bottle. So it was still all red ~~deeerrrpppp
