With the corset, she's not worried about the function, just the look really.

I have a pattern she likes and if she wants the corset look, all I have to do is install eyelets in the back and "Lace it up.

Anyway, thanks for everything! We've ordered Sommer's first pattern suggestion, and we're going to keep mystico_tala's  suggestion as back up.

Thanks again so much for the help.

You see, the website says that it's a "Fishtail" Skirt... and I've never heard of anything like that, It seems to be some type of dance skirt that looks like nothing like the picture...

So, I've been commissioned by a friend to try and recreate a dress for her... Normally, that'd be easy. I'm a good seamstress... even though I'm a guy... lol

Anyway, This...


Is the skirt. It's a two peice dress with an overbust corset on top.

The rest of the dress can be seen through the link.

I really need help finding a skirt pattern for something similar... So, Umm... Help?

One thing... make sure you don't use the pot you color to cook with.

You can find second hand pots and pans at the second hand stores and thats when they come in handy.

At many fabric stores there are big chunks of foam that can be shaped into many shapes. Look at commerical fat suits, and try to replicate these with the foam.

Hope that helps.

You beat me to the hoodie idea!

Make it one that's a little big on him. Not like swallowing him up, but enough to where it isn't snug at all. Put on some ears, make a "Dog Collar" out of ribbon and the Scooby Doo Tag out of cardboard and...

Like Magic, Scooby Doo, I dunno how he's feel about a tail though. Maybe one the hangs down, but definitly not one that would get in the way.

Hope you have lots of fun!

I think at best I'd give better advice on the outfit than other things.

Looking at some of the images, the woman's body is always facing the left but looking at the camera. This is not always true, but seeing the collection of them this happens more often.

The background of the image is mostly blank, consisting of a color that fits the picture ranging from it being in light to shadows. It may be difficult to do this in real life, but not impossible. Search the internet it will surely bring up results.

There is rarely anything in the image that shouldn't be there. The images contain: The Subject, One Prop, and One Background Item.

The clothing of the women always causes them to stand out from anything else in the image. They seem to always be wearing nice shoes, A intricatly designed top, Nylons, and rarely is the lower torso aka the pubic area shown.

The accessories on the women range from picture to picture depending on what they are doing in the image but they are mostly wearing hanging ear-rings if they have no Necklace and smaller closer to the ear ear-rings if they have a necklace. In a large amount of images the women are wearing gloves, weither or not this is logical to do in your picture depends on what activity you are doing in the image.

The Facial Expressions range from a knowing smirk to "cute" accident face or even a flirtacious pucker. From what I've read that you would like to do I beleive either a pucker or a smirk would be the best choice.

The makeup of the women is pretty simple, they are wearing eyeshadow, mascara, and lipstick. A light foundation and a very very light amount of blush is recommended though.

This is all I can really pull from the images, The only thing I must stress is make sure the picture is a tall shot showing all of your body.

Good Luck, Wink
