Do I dare disturb the universe?

Hello everyone! Great costumes, this challenge is so much fun.  Here's my contribution:

It doubled as my Renaissance Fair costume...



The wings are handmade, though not by me:


The top is two shirts sewn together and embellished with embroidery thread (all my sewing was by hand b/c my machine is broken)
It's a corset top with a sheer flowery shirt over it:


And so.  The skirt and belt are mine, but I made the other pouch to hang on the belt out of extra shirt fabric. 
I made my little shrug by chopping off the sleeves and neck of the top and embellishing it again with embroidery thread - it looks like it has sort of primitive stitches, that sort of thing.  I painted my pointy ears to match my real ears and got many compliments. Smiley

My craft supply philosophy I stole from a line from AVP. ''I'd rather have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.'' But, they were talking about a condom. Tongue

Thank you thank you!  I felt really great in it, and even got a few comments at the faire...something about being eaten my trolls.

My wings were made by : Animal X.  I bought them several years ago, before I became crafty and realized that these things were a bit pricey.  They make some of the most beautiful wings out there, though.

Happiness can be found in the darkest of times...if one only remembers to turn on the lights.

You can lead a heart to love, but you can't make it fall.
