Hi everyone! I haven't posted here in a while, but I wanted to share my halloween costume. I started it more than a year ago, but I got it finished the day before the halloween party!

I was going for steampunk-ringmaster I don't know if that worked, but I really like how everything turned out.

I made:
- The corset
- the shirt with the insane collar
- the whip (wood turning and all)
- the jewellery I wore in my hair
- the skirt
- the petticoat
- the bloomers that went under the petticoat (best thing ever for a party in november!!!)




I wore my great brown suede boots with the costume, sadly that's a little hard to see on the pictures.



close ups of the corset:



the finishing steps of the corset, you can see the hooks I used to close it here


And the bloomers, that were very handy but mostly hidden under the petticoat. The petticoat was a monster to sew, it's huge.

Sorry for the grumpy face, btw. I'm not sure why all of the pictures are so stern, but probably because we were late already and in a hurry Wink
