Red and Gold Noble by immortalphoenix Red and Gold Noble by immortalphoenix
This is my pride and joy at the moment. This is all gold silk and red cotton brocade, with cream velvet ribbon and gold trim. Those little gold florets took me ten minutes apiece. There are probably about 60 on the forepart and the sleeves. There are about 60 yards of velvet ribbon on this thing. The hat and feathers I bought, but I made the band. It is also used (with different band and feathers) for the periwinkle pearl costume. This took me forever, but it's so worth it. I know I'm making a strange face in one of these, but this involved much friendly teasing between me and my dad, the photographer. I would have taken these pictures outside, but there was no sunlight and Wisconsin is rather cold in December, not to mention rather snowy, and this cost too much to get wet. ;) Also check out the more detailed one. This would be a mid-late 16th century noble class gown, worn over a farthingale and corset, which I have pictures up. When I go to the fair this summer, I'll put up some better pics. I fit the bodice before I lost 15 lbs, so it's a little loose. I need to fix that.

Edit: New pics, I always think they look better outside, and I have a great yard for it. I like the contrast of the green tree against the red and gold. It was a windy day, and it made my skirt floof up a bit, which looks cool.

Red and Gold Noble by ~immortalphoenix The fullview is a little large, but OH MY do I want this dress. Painstaking detail and wonderful craftsmanship, not to mention the hat! Definetly one of the best I've seen on dA! ( Featured by JLLopez )

My first thought is WOW.
My second though is i hope she used the washroom before putting that on as it would take a while to take off again.
High fashion has a horrible price. The look is perfect though. The colors are a perfect match.
