Lady Scarlett by NovelPashion Lady Scarlett by NovelPashion
Hey guys,
To answer your question once again, no, I am not dead. ^_^ Though monday I was feeling "dead" because of how completely exhausted I was from Comic-Con Saturday and Sunday! It was a total blast going and dressing up. Speaking of which . . .
This is my steampunk costume that I wore Saturday. I loved wearing it! I think some people enjoyed the costume as well. :)

Designed, made, and modeled my yours truly :blowkiss:

That's really super pretty :D Again, I love how the red gives a nice 'splash' to everything :p Awesome outfit, I can imagine you loved wearing it :p

Thank you so much! I simply LOVE the color red, my gosh, it is just so gorgeous. But it was difficult making it work because steampunk has a very subdued color palette. I was so happy to find this certain red amongst my fabric collection. ^_^

I know :D I absolutely love red too, it's just such an intense and rich colour :heart:
But I can indeed imagine it's hard getting it to fit with the usual steampunk palette :p But once you've figured out how, it's such an awesome combination xD I find emerald green and certain types of blue like azure blue work well too ^^ but the hard part is actually finding fabrics in that exact colourtone :D Like finding a dark red fabric that is not a tafetta or an expensive velvet, argh, seems impossible when you're searching for it :p

Oh my gosh, totally!
Finding the exact color can totally SUCK most of the time. Ugh! ^_^ But it makes it all the more fun when a look comes together really well. ^_^ Do you have a favorite fabric?

Haha true, can be so frustrating :D But you're right, if it comes together and gets you that perfect endresult, that's like 'ahhh look at me! I totally nailed it, it's so awesome ! B-)' yeah *I totally deserve a cookie now* :D
Hmm no not really actually.. I looove the deep and intense colours of velvet but that's just way too hard to sew with and wear everyday :p So if I have to choose a favorite type of fabric I'm probably going to say, lace, brocade or jacquard or something like that :D But in normal day life I wear anything that looks victorian/retro inspired xD so I usually have a setlist of colours I get drawn to, like reeeeed :heart: but also black, emerald green, navy and azure blue, steampunk colours like brown/golden/creme colours and such xD So whenever I look at my closet it's quite obvious I like certain colours lol :D
What about you ^^? any addictions to certain types of fabrics :D? or colours, except for the obvious red ofcourse :p

Haha, yeah! Velvet is a pretty heavy fabric, might cause some great discomfort. :giggle:That is so neat how you dress with your favorite genre in mind. There are too many genres that I love I don't think my closet would be able to fit all of my mood changes. :D It is true I love red. But I have really come to love emerald green, and gold. I just love gold! It is a "mature-flashy" color without being too childish. Hope that makes sense. ^_^

Lol yeah, mood changes, makes it hard to dress sometimes :D What do you wear in every day life then :p? I always wonder about that if I see people here on dA that are also into the Victorian age :D

But yeah I really love those periods in time ^^ I even really feel like I'm born in the wrong century, hard to explain sometimes =/ so if I can't go back to the 19th century I have to bring it back to me xD Not that it's anywhere near possible to walk around in corsets and long skirts with full petticoats and hoopskirts, but a knee length skirt with a petticoat and looots and lots of (quite) tightly waisted tops and/or waist belts do the trick too :D Quite sursprising though, but in the 50's they kind of dressed similar to the Victorian age :p they also wore more tightly waisted top halfs and wider skirts (if you don't think about pencil skirts ofcourse), with petticoats and corsets underneath :D and matching hat and gloves to finish everything off, just awesome B-)
So, kinda sucks to be born in this day and age lol xD Because almost everybody finds victorian clothing and/or "pin-up" clothing beautiful but when it comes down to it they still want to wear what the average commercial stores offers them. Don't understand that really :p

And yeah I absolutely know what you mean! gold can be super chique and classy :D depending on the exact tone, model and how you combine it ofcourse, because it can go wrong so fast xD like "look at my bling dude! I'm so cool! and/or Look at me! I combined it with pink so now I look like Barbie, yeay ain't I hot" lol not exactly no, but okay, whatever floats your boat :D

Oh my goodness! I am so sorry for not getting back with you sooner! I've been a little busy around here:blush: :(
That is an excellent question! What do I wear everyday? Hmmm, well when I am at home I mostly wear the usual wear something comfortable. Shorts/sweats etc. I am in love with the sailor/vintage style. So I have a TON of white and navy-blue stripe shirts. And when I am out on the town I love wearing skirts, like tailored skirts. I just love the rockabilly/vintage style so I consider that when I am preparing for the day. ^_^ But, whenever I am at home or out I always wear nice jewelry. To me that is a staple. I just love wearing, faux diamonds, pearls, exotic. I don't know, I just don't feel completely dressed without them. ^_^ Funny huh? :D
Oh my gosh! I totally know the feeling of being born in the wrong era!!! Yeah, what makes me love the 50's was that Dior made his own interpretation of the "romantic" eras. So hence the corsets and grand skirts etc. Love it!:heart:
How I see it (me thinking that I am born in the wrong era) is that, until I can make a time-machine, I am going to take advantage of being born in this era by dressing in all the eras that I love. It may not be everyday that I do, but conventions and fairs certainly help me express it. Because if I was in another era it wouldn't be such a novelty. ^_^
Hahaha:laugh: totally! Some times I see people wearing A TON of gold bling and it's like, "Whoa, I thought the sun had already set!" :giggle: How do you like to dress?
