This costume came about after a group theme was selected. (Flower Faeries). The theme of the costume would be faeries representing one main type of flower. I chose Poppies a) Because I quite like them and b) because I found the shape of the leaves interesting and wanted to reflect that with my wings and jacket. (Not as of yet constructed). Also Red and Red Orange combinations are flattering on me. I wanted to be the Stronger less gauzy of the three faeries. The soft wooly feel of the corset material was selected to mimic that of the oriental poppy leaf.
