I know that you've all been *dying* to see my Peacock Dress in action, so here it was as I wore it to the fantastic event hosted by the Steampunk Society of Nebraska.
The dashing Gentleman in these photos would be my Beau, who coincidentally won the prize of "Best Top Hat" for the evening. Yes, that is a clock on his top hat. Yes, the clock is functional/accurate. Yes, it was AWESOME.
You'll note that I don't have any pictures of the bustle that I promised in my original "Peacock Ensemble" post. That is because the bustle had severe problems in bustling. I might tackle it again in the future, but for right now it is safely tucked away in my "mending" pile. For purposes of the ball, I made myself a half-tutu from some blue and green tulle. It was cute, but nothing remarkable.
But on to my *New Adventure* in the New Year...
... looks awfully official, doesn't it?
That is because it totally is. I've taken the plunge into the world of freelance artistry. I'm wide open for commissions, I'll be appearing at a con here and there, and I'm even opening an Etsy store. I'm terribly excited about all of this.
So, join me on this grand adventure! Start out by liking my Facebook Page, and keep an eye open for updates as I get my Etsy store rip-roaring!
