Yay! My costume for Otakon is pretty much finished. I just have to add a few details to one of the accessories, and then I can focus on finishing Diana's.
Here's the dress by itself:
The style is very simple: just a fitted bodice and a full, gathered skirt. I've got the petticoat on under the dress, and it really does make the skirt stand out nicely.
This dress is incredibly comfortable; I will definitely be making more in this style. But I might change the sleeve; it either needs to be longer or shorter, so the cuff isn't in the way of my elbow.
Here's the dress with the apron:
So what, you ask, is my costume supposed to represent?
Hint #1: Look at the stockings.
Hint #2: Pleasantville.
I'll be doing a complete "dress rehearsal" tomorrow, and will post pictures of the full getup then!
Will your heirs really want your stuff?
