All pictures taken by my boyfriend (THANK YOU♥)
My awesome Henry: Val (costume and props made by him). Custom dyed that incredibly accurate shirt, he is WIN I SAY!
He can be found here: http://gangsterlovin.deviantart.com/
She has quite an interesting design, and I had so much fun wearing the costume and getting SH:4 pictures.
The bodice itself is made of upholstery velvet (for the backing) and black lace to go over it to get that effect that her dress has. The lines in the bodice are made out of dupioni silk that alternates between black and purple-ly green (because that is how the 3-d model looked). The other stretchy parts of the dress were fashioned out of evening wear. The shoes were fairly tricky to get right. I deconstructed some payless bases down to the heels and then rebuilt because I couldn't find any shoes with the perfect heel that were also round toed ankle heels...the purse was made with embroidery boards that were whipstitched together at the sides, and then a bag cover was made for the outside. The belt is the result of weeks of internet searching for a metal belt with the perfect shape. The "enamel" bits within the metal belt are made from model magic that I painted to match the dress. I also have a shabby doll prop which is now in Val's possession (yay! and no bad possessed Eileen pun intended). Made the necklace out of lace from walmart and bought both wrist bangles at walmart as well. I even painted my nails that same shade of pink-y lilac that hers are :3 The riding crop weapon I had "equipped" was borrowed from my mommy :D
The wig was cut by Maria at Otakon after many FAIL attempts on my part. She did a lovely job and I am very grateful she took the time to fix up where I left off. THANK YOU MOOHAAA ♥, couldn'ta done Eileen without you!!!! Major thanks for doing my makeup goes out to her as well, it is always appreciated :)
I plan to perhaps razor some more on the wig when I wear Nurse Eileen, but then again she pretty much got it perfect so my job is essentially done.
