My outfit is mostly made by me. I made the dress, the coat and the hat, and then picked up accessories and things like that wherever I could find them.
Robin's outfit consists mostly out of things we bought in various places and then altered to fit. (Because I am still terrible at Men's clothing!) There was a lot of swapping plastic buttons for nice brass ones, tea-dyeing and decorating. I also made the scarf out of the same fabric as parts of my coat and the bow tie out of the same fabric as my dress. Oh and I decorated the hat too, but you can't see it too well in this picture.
I am really happy with how these outfits turned out though! I think we look pretty awesome together.
I love the design (did you design it?)
I also love the hat and tiny details ^^
And I was just wondering if Robin was your beau or just a close friend (if you don't mind me asking of course )
Robin is most definitely my beau. We've been together for almost two years now. (And it's great to have someone who's willing to dress up with you! X3)
That's really cool!! I always think its nice when people are actually good enough to design their own clothes (it means they have skill).
Just a little advice: if I were you, I'd put a watermark/your name on the pictures. I've seen a lot of your work and your beautiful pictures (like this one) lost on Pinterest People often forget to credit the maker and if you repin it you have no idea who these gorgous looking people are And that's unfair to the maker, in this case: you
Ahhh the old and trusty 'buy and pimp it up' technique It's just not worth the effort to make something new for every event, because you wear it twice and then you feel you should already make something new xD (that's how it usually goes with me anyway and I assume I'm not the only one ) So long live accessories
You're right, that would be so much easier xD not crediting the picture is quite disrespectful to all the hard work someone's put into it =/ And if you only find pictures labeled "pretty steampunk clothes" instead of the maker's name & website, nobody is able to find the person's Etsy/portfolio/whatever. Argh, the many joys of internet
Yes, the upholstery/scarf is a nice detail that ties everything together so well You look very beautiful and cute together
Ooh I can imagine that must be SO frustrating! Apparantly it happens all the time that people steel someone else's creations, hope they never tried it with you yet? =/
