HOLY COW! This is just eye candy all they way around! I cannot get over the fact that you recycled $100 worth of crap into THIS! And now I am afraid my exclamation points are too much and that you have not noted just how fabulous I think every single piece really IS! ;o)    The fact that your model did not produce the photos you wanted is okay.... IMHO, you did a lovely job taking pics of the individual bits and they show here wonderfully.

The corset is a beaut but I especially like the top "leaf" detailing. It has nice dimension. I love texture too and you hit that mark quite well. The owl head piece is simply GORGEOUS. And the hand-made feathering? I am pleasantly surprised by these. I would never have guessed that unravelling some fabric would turn out such great feathers. This detail alone stunned me. Genious! All in all? FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC. PM me for my mailing address :O)

Beautiful work. It looks like something from a masquerade ball. Would you mind sharing how you made the feathers?

I don't own the copyright to the design of this costume (my client designed it), but I can give a quick tutorial on some of the techniques I used (feathers, feather-detaling on corset etc..) as those where my ideas, not the designer's..  I'm super-busy this week, coz I'm now making an Arabian costume for a theatre production and I've got my final fitting tomorrow, but I'll try to post something this weekend Smiley

So much creativity..
So little time...

I have an Epla-shop for my paper bead earrings (it's like Etsy, but in Norwegian):
