I am so proud of this, my very first recon!

Here is the cloak...



And here is the dress...



And here is the dress with my over-kimono, sash and kinky legwear lol...



I wore the dress to my Staff nite out yesterday and everyone was impressed with my efforts. We weren't the only work-nite party there, so there were lots of new faces that I'll probably never see again XD I was complimented on my dress and asked where I bought it from; they were all shocked when I told them that I'd made it myself.

I've never felt so confident in a dress and I danced up a storm!

Hope ya'll like it too Cheesy xx

I bet those blue ruffles (which are fab, btw) looked amazing when you danced.
