Hi everyone! I had the hardest time deciding where this topic might belong, so... I'm here. Cheesy



This is a sculpture-thingy I made for school a year ago. It's build fully from materials we got from a sponsoring flea market (most of them were going to trash!) and it got to be in my school's summer exhibition. The corset is made from gauze and some random scrap of canvas, and the bustle is made of scarves, tablecloths, blankets, cloths, towels, skirts, winter cap, aaand... Well, a lot of random scraps and gauze as well.

They are both wearable, though the bustle would require some reinforcement to stay in shape, as I'm using an aluminum mesh "sculpture" as a mannequin. The corset is actually transparent because of the gauze, so the mesh allows light to come trough.

Oh, and the name at the top, it's Finnish word meaning either breath, ghost, life, spirit, soul and wraith. Take your pick! Cheesy (the address at the bottom is my dA-account, you can ignore that if you will)
Let me know what you think!

This is absolutely stunning, and I adore the title. And the wire mesh mannequin? Incredible. I love the way it lets light through, and it really adds to the etherealness of the piece.

Basically? Love love love this. Smiley

So, if it's a cross between a corset and a bustle, does that make it a corpuscle cor-bustle?

Questionable witticisms aside, that is really lovely. Good work!
