I’m getting to support lots of individual artisans in putting together my costume, and I’m really enjoying it. It’s a small thing, but it feels good!
My underbust is coming from AnnaLadyMoon in a blue-grey stripe, or at least will be, if she doesn’t get entirely frustrated with my ability to completely confuse horizontal and vertical. Oops. Either way, it’ll be lovely.
The hat, which is critical, is in the works from Noxenlux Chapeaux. I’m not much of a hat person, but she comes highly recommended. I hope she sends me a sketch soon, I’m incredibly curious as to what she’s got planned.
Also curious to see what ByGaslight is going to whip up for me to use as “stained glass” accents for the skirt and coat. I’ve given her a general idea, but it’ll be her design. I just love the way her stuff looks.
Very excited about a pair dove grey lace gloves from Skywatcher112 on their way to me right now. She had them finished in two days! Handmade lace gloves! How incredibly fabulous. I simply cannot wait for them to arrive!
…and not really for the costume, but I’m also anxiously checking the mail for the Dalek glass bead kalliope_kheru made for me. I think he’ll make an awesome little necklace, or a watch fob, perhaps. Lots of personality.
