An original design for a variation of Lady Loki.
This is all of it including the cape.
The skirt is longer in the back then in the front which doesn't show in the photo.
This is the costume that goes with the headdress [link]
Once complete this costume took 170 yards of trim, 13 yards of HANDMADE embroidered braid trims, 16 yards of fabric and over 2,000 yards of thread. The cape is fully reversible.
The fur stole is ALL hand stitched and satin lined, it has a removable lace-up adjustable pleather back panel and eye and hook closers in the front, the long parts can also be worn around the back. The cape can be worn fastened in the front or hidden adjustable straps around the back for a 'How the hell does that stay on?' comic book look.
The tunic dress is 100% raw silk double hemmed so no fraying and the ruffles are black chiffon, triple edged with a rolled hem. Each of the 6 points of the bottom are ended in faceted black teardrop and roundel beads. It's designed to be able to tuck the handkerchief bottom under the waist band for a fitted tunic top or left untucked and worn as a dress.
It was actually a little last minute. It had to be done to be shipped to Hollywood for the premiere of the Avengers movie so while I did everything I could to take my time and not rush, it really was a rush! There're some details I would have liked to added and some structural things I would have liked to tweaked that wouldn't have been noticeable but I would know they were there
I had never met the woman who commissioned it so I was making a tailored outfit based on a few measurements.
I hope to have photos of it on the actual person soon.
This was the best I could do before shipping if off to the customer.
I don't have a dress form so this is on a plastic backless half torso display with one of my bras and the whole thing is padded with strapped on pillows, socks, a long sleeve shirt and a wide belt to make the waist
Also, not appearing in this photo: are also sculpted snake buckles on fur boot cuffs that are also broaches with double pin backs so they are removable and can be worn anywhere as a pin.
The 'stones' in the snakes are ALL hand cast and polished dichoric resin with a sealed crackle finish, even the 2mm ones.
The outfit also has leather-look lycra opera length gloves with fur trim and embroidered edging.
