My Costume Plans for 2017

Hi everyone,

Last year I made a “Costume Wish List” for the entire year and I think it would be nice to see what I accomplish also this time 🙂

I will try to buy not so much fabric this year and use some of my stored fabric up, since I have way to much of it… XD

So what are my plans for 2017? These are not chronological… but I will try to point out for which event the costume is eventually planned.

–> 1860 purple ballgown (this costume is ready to wear by now). I started with it between Christmas and new year and had already one shooting with it.) I will work on the train a bit more and add more ruffles in the future.

I chose this costume to reduce my piles of fabric a bit. And I also tried out a new sewing pattern which I will also use for my wedding dress. The pattern is really nice! I just need to lengthen it a bit for the next project because my torso it quite long.

–> Poison Ivy (organic version)

I have already the fabric here. A really beautiful silk that changes colors between red and olive green. Planned for the Comic Con in Hanover

–> Jessica Rabbit… in my more modest version.

I have also all fabrics here and started already with the corset. (I will actually start with this costume right after my purple ballgown) This one is planned for the Bookfair in Leipzig

–> “Star Seeker” this is a very special project for me since I got the idea when I was on vacation at Madeira.

I found a really nice (but also very expensive) silk that matches these colors perfectly. I cannot wait to start with this project!!! This costume will be made for shootings and indoor events (where it’s dry and not dirty, since silk is such an expensive and sensitive material.

–> A military inspired dress in black and gold to match my tricorne.

I will try to make this dress probably for the WGT 2017. I would like to try a new corset pattern that I have lying around but I guess I need to adjust it very much…

–> Another Asian princess dress but this time in gold, brown and red (probably for autumn 2017 or even the Elf Fantasy Fair in Arcen).

–>A frilly shepherd girl dress with a matching staff. Just like in some old fashioned movies. I am not sure which pattern I will use. Maybe a mix out of different periods. I will try to use just fabrics out of my stock. Would be nice for spring when the lambs are born.

–> A golden elaborate dress for the WGT 2017. I want to make it big, sparkly and very detailed.

–> A lilac colored Elven dress, very airy and with mostly chiffon and silver appliques. This one is planned for a trip into the lavender fields in the Provence of France.

–> “Arielle” from the little Mermaid. Her rose colored ballgown dress (maybe also for the EFF in Arcen). Just as usual in my own style with more pearls and details.

–> “Queen Merida” with some alterations 😉 Its just difficult to find the right fabric color or fabric kind… I am not sure if I would like to use velvet (because it’s so heavy and the color range is so limited) or something else like brocade or cotton fabric. I need to search the web a bit more for the perfect fabric.^^

–> A light blue Tudor Gown. Maybe also for the WGT?

–> Some smaller and quick projects like simple dresses or medieval dresses.

Soooo this makes +/-11 planned costumes (and some smaller projects) and one already finished costume. This is quite ambitious but I guess I can and will manage that 😀

So stay tuned for the finished costumes. 😀

So many new costumes

Hi everyone!

This year is so crazy for me… I made so many costumes this year, its insane! Here are three of my newest costumes that I haven’t shown here. Thanks to all photographers who made the pictures 🙂

Pride and Prejudice

The nice part on this costume is that I had all materials already at home  😉 I just needed to put everything together.

The Kanzashi Gown

This costume was made already for the Wave Gothic Treffen this year. I wanted to make a costume with this dragon scale fabric for so long… and I thought why shouldn’t I make something extravagant for the Victorian Picknick. All the Kanzashi Flowers were made also by myself (luckily with some help from my friends, since they are very time consuming). I think the flowers add some couture vibe to this costume 🙂

Black Marie

This is my newest costume which I made for the Elf Fantasy Fair in Arcen this September. I made a black Rococo dress some time ago and sold it. I regretted this selling so much so I needed a new black dress (and this one is even better 😉 )

WGT – Wave Gothic Treffen in Leipzig

Conventions, WGT

Another huge event for me is the WGT in Leipzig. I’m not so much into the gothic music scene but I LOVE the creative costume people, who try to make an even better outfit every year! The costume quality is sometimes so insane that I for myself feel a bit underdressed or unskilled. ^^” It’s nice to see that there seems to be no end to the creativity in costumemaking.

So here is a picture of one of my costumes for this event. (picture by Alex Blyg)

I’m so excited for the WGT this year! I have planned some really nice outfits… so I guess I need to start very soon with the sewing. XD

Only 2 months and some days left! I will keep you updated with my progress 🙂
