The dress I want to show you today is one of my evening gowns I wear as the Lady Honouria Hartwell-Jones who I play at the Clockwork Monkey larps (they're awesome by the way, if you larp and like steam punk you should totally check them out).
|I'm not sure why I feel the need to constantly curtsey in this dress, but I do!|
|I think I need more curtsey practice though - dreadfully wobbly!|
|Inadvertently flashing my petticoat, oops...|
Please excuse the wrinkles, I forgot about this dress until the last minute and due to weather fears I didn't stop to iron it...
The gold fabric has a flower and leaf pattern woven in and I'm sorry to say I don't have a clue what fabric it is. I picked it up in a sale (£1 a metre, bargain!). I have a sneaky suspicion it's actually some kind of upholstery chintz, but I don't really care, seeing as it works so well for 'Ria.
The bodice insert and underskirt are make out of green embroidered taffeta (why yes, I do love embroidered taffeta...). Which again I picked up in a sale.
|This is about the time when we got silly, can you tell?|
The gun is very pretty. 'Ria hasn't used it yet, but she plans to! Can you tell I know nothing whatsoever about firearms? Replice or real!
On Thursday I'll show you my more punky steam punk gear, which I wore to my last birthday party.
