Madame Vastra
Full silicone face prosthetic and latex "hood" with latex bald cap, all sculpted, molded and cast by me. Painted with traditional and airbrushes. Silicone paint and acrylic paint custom mixed with pigments in appropriate base mediums.
Period accurate "hunting" jacket, knickers and skirt also made be me- patterned using historic dressmaking guides- no pattern.
Boot covers repurposed from Maleficent.
Sword and scabbard made from rimu, pvc sheet plastic, and leather, again by me.

Cape not my work, everything else custom dyed and patterned and sew by me :)
Elsa stage 1 by glittersweet
Elsa stage 1
Gown by me
Cape not made by me, but tapered reshaped and frosty hem added
Shirt also made by me.
Make up: minimal- photoready primer and no foundation, eyebrows and eyelashes dyed black and brows plucked to shape. Lip tint, eyeliner and false lashes. Lilac eyeshadow, enhanced with interference blue and violet pigments.

Gown is a layer of microsequined spandex in pearl white and a top layer of bridal tulle all custom dyed to pale blue with a hint of aqua. Hem ombre dyed.
It is lined in royal blue stretch satin charmeuse and the bodice is fully lined, padded and supported. It does need an elastic stay at the inside waist as well as the top edge having additional support with horsehair braid.

Shirt is powermesh ombre dyed with chain sequin details, these shred the wig braid so are going to be replaced.

The wig is from Wigfashion on ebay and is a lace front is light ash blonde blonde. In reality it looks fairly white blonde. It does have a minor widows peak but a nice deep lade front so you can style and cut the front a little closer to the wig line where needed.

Autodidact in the genre of costuming, but BSc (Biochemistry) and Dip. Perf. Art (actress) to boot so I will geek at you from all angles.

"If we are anything we must be a democracy of the intellect. We must not perish by the distance between people and government, between people and power.... And that distance can only be conflated, can only be closed if knowledge sits in the homes and heads of people with no ambition to control others, and not up in the isolated seats of power."
J. Bronowski, The Ascent of man.

Current Residence: Kiwiland
Favourite genre of music: theatrical, be it oratorio or opera or musical theatre
Favourite style of art: Mannerism, genre, Art Nouveau, Deco, PRB, Immpressionistic
Personal Quote: You have options
Long time no write. Again. And again I'm sick as a dog- I think I think I may be heading into disease relapse at the same time as a few related but not really doctor and hospital visits.

Basically "you shouldn't be this tired even with your disease and inability to store iron and B12 and all that."

Thank you for sharing your beautiful collection of period costumes and cosplay. It is quite a diverse and attractive selection.

Your DA nickname is quite clever and charming too.

Thank you :) My website used to also have the same name however a few years back a business started using the term and since then my online profile dropped, a lot so I had to change. It's a pity as I had the domain since 2003 and built up a good level of interaction based on it.

And yes, pretty varied, costume is my art form so I don't limit myself. I love using techniques that were used for each era or style and having to change my mindset for each project :0
