Considering it’s made of gold, silver, and black lamé, I think this coat is pretty elegant. It does have a touch of Golden Girls glam, but it’s perfect for a rave and there’s something about that hood that makes me feel gangsta.

Gangsta at a disco!

I think the pattern is either scales or fabulous raindrops. For the lining I used black minky which makes me feel like royalty… Or maybe its that giant gold embroidered collar. That’s positively Aztec, but it’s also spacey, and I’m pretty sure the coat was designed for wizards.

The two-way zipper means it can be opened from the bottom and worn as a cloak. Little Red Riding Hood I am not.

Of course this was designed for Burning Man and other such fabulous events. It would be perfect for the chilly roof of a loft party, or walking 8 blocks to your car afterwards.

Thanks y'all. It's pretty flashy, but perfect for parties and soooo warm to wear! I have just a tiny bit of this fabric left and I might make pants...
