Good & Evil Queen

As you know I made two Fortuny Delphos dresses in gold and purple. Since they are very fancy and have a nice light and dark contrast, I always had to think about two contrary queens. So for the more fantastic styling I bought Ravenna's crown (Snow White and the Huntsman) for the purple Delphis dress, [...]

Elven Crown made from Wire & Fimo Leather

I always had an idea for a more fantastic styling for the Fortuny Delphos dresses. Like a queen in a fairytale. Originally I only made the golden Delphos dress and bought Ravenna's crown (Snow White and the Huntsman) for it. But then I did the purple Delphos dress and it obviously was the evil queen, [...]

Forgotten Beauty – Lost Places Photoseries

Already some time ago I created a Lost Places photoseries in Austria and Switzerland with an incredible team. Most Lost Places were industrial ruins, for example a beautiful Art Nouveau factory. And there was an old swimming pool as well. The involved parties Angela Asiana - The Model Not only a model, but also stylist, [...]

All dresses for editorial “The Muse” are finished

The sixth and last dress from the editorial series "The Muse" is finished. Originally I planned to play with different shades of grey in the dress and corset. Unfortunately the grey fabrics didn't look good together. So I rummaged a bit in my clothing collection and found my white Steampunk corset. It's made from snow-white [...]

Fifth dress for “The Muse”

Slowly but surely I am finishing the work for our editorial. The fifth dress is ready. This time it is less of a dress and more corset and jewelry though. I made a skirt with long train from apple green chiffon. Then I added green corset with many ruches (the design is inspired by Maya [...]

More antique dresses for editorial

I'm still working on an editorial with photographer Mario Bertolini, makeup artist Tamara Ciullo and model Angela Asiana. We're photographing in old industrial areas (we've already been in an art deco and in a concrete factory). My dresses have flowing cuts and draped fabric. On top of the dresses you wear corsets to give them a clear silhouette. The two dresses [...]

Antique dresses for Editorial “The Muse”

Together with my neighbour the photographer (http://www.bertoliniphoto.at/), one of the make-up artists from Switzerland (http://getalook.ch/) and a wonderful model (http://www.angelaasiana.com/) we planned an editorial. I just invented the name "The Muse" since all of the dresses more or less have a Greek or Roman style. Everything had to go very fast, so I just bought [...]

Leah’s dress

The date for moving to a new apartment is getting closer. I already packed the first boxes. But that doesn't stop me from continuing to sew. Ok, well maybe a little... But Leah's dress for the Loki and Leah cospay is ready. I don't really like to copy cosplays exactly. It is a bit unsatisfactory [...]

Artemisia’s armour with top and skirt

Today and yesterday I have been on a sword fighting seminar (which was really great), this is why it took some time, but now Artemisia's armour is finished. Last time I wrote about the breast armour and sword belt (made from fake leather) and about the golden spikes (made from mould powder and resin). Meanwhile [...]

Lady Loki’s dress

Right now everyone seems to think that it would be great to order something from me RIGHT NOW. You know, shortly before I am moving to a new apartment. ;) But not that I'm complaining. I just need a lot longer for the unpaid projects. For example the Loki & Leah and the Artemisia costumes. [...]

WIP: Spikes for Artemisia

Onward with Artemisia's armour. Mostly it consists of spikes and claws. But we all know that a proper villain can't have to many spikes for decoration. I looked for materials in our handicraft store. Actually Fimo (a kind of thermoplastic clay) would have been the best choice since it's rather flexible when dried. But no one [...]

Embroidery: By hand or machine

Recently I had a discussion why I went through all the trouble of embroidering my elven wedding gown by hand. A machine could do that just as well. And I have to admit I couldn't give a convincing answer at the time. Simply because I never saw a comparable work done with an embroidery machine.

Embroidered collar & new server

Right now I'm in the process of moving the website to a new and above all faster server. So only a short update (and until tomorrow another URL, so don't be surprised). The Khaleesi/Daenerys Targaryen cosplay inspired by Game of Thrones is already with my model for a photo shooting. But shortly before I sent [...]

Complete Khaleesi Cosplay

This time just a short update. I already posted the individual pieces of the cosplay for Daenerys Targaryen / Khaleesi from Game of Thrones. Now all of it together. Like this I sent it to Silver Wolfie / Joanna last week. There will be beautiful pictures soon. :)

WIP: Armour for Khaleesi

I'm still working on the cosplay for Daenery Targaryen resp. Khaleesi. Since she is riding into war quite often, I think she should have some armour. At least my version or armour. I try to avoid real leather whenever possible. Here I found some nice fake suede in two shades of brown. I reinforced it [...]
