As promised, here are the three looks I showed at the 2011 Otakon Fashion show. I know the photos aren't the best, I took them the night before I shipped the looks to Carla. Not the best lighting!
I did edit it a bit, shortening the skirt lining and moving the ruffle up.
It's worn with a "peasant" style blouse I've been wanting to make for a while, a rose corsage, glass pearl choker, and a vintage hat that belonged to my great grandmother.
I just love how it all came together on the runway! I call it my "Peaseblossom" dress after the fairy from "A Midsummer's Night's Dream"
Since it's being released in late summer I decided to try for more of a fall coordinate with a long sleeved blouse.
The crown emblem pin/hairclip is pinned to a headband and is then pinned onto the skirt of the jsk since my dummy has no head. I originally wanted to pin the emblem to a blue beret for the fashion show, but no blue beret was to be found in the middle of summer!
I have to say this cream lace is one of the most amazing fabrics I have ever bought! It's hard to show in photos the epicness of it! Flora and fauna arranged in a very William Morris way. Unicorns and stags, birds and squirrels, Adam and Eve themselves, and more!
Sadly I purchased it years ago, and not that much of it. I have enough after this one to make myself a dress.
This dress will be for sale in the couture section of my website as soon as I get it back

All in all I think it turned out very well! I couldn't have done it without my wonderful models and Carla's help! Thank you so much!
