Secret Black Vow
Last Updated: 06-30-2013
Black vow is such a pretty song! And I fell in love with the artwork and designs just as much! I really wanted to do black vow for a long time and finally got the opportunity to with two of my friends Anna and Zara as Len and Rin.
Gloves, hoopskirt boots and tights are all bought or borrowed.
The first wig was my old DWC one, the newer one is just my usual Miku wig :'D Im surprised I was able to get all that hair into a proper up-do without taking hours to do it.
The dress itself was me testing a lot of new techniques for sewing proper clothing. I didnt get to make the bodice structured like I wanted to but Im still pretty happy with it. I really love the fabric choice I ended up with, it photographs well, is comfortable, a bit stretchy and I feel it goes well for what the time period might've used. If I had more time/money I think I would've made the ruffles out of a different material to add more textures.
Overall I'm pretty satisfied but I still would like to re-do the ribbon going down the princess seams, the bodice, make the back lacing more secure and make the back ruffles a bit smaller. They're just a smidge too tall and are a bit distracting with such an open back.
I also really need to remake the choker. It looks fine, but the quality and accuracy aren't great xD; I need to add the small lace trimmings and the gold fastener for the gem.
If I ever find the fabric Im looking for (Im being a bit picky xD; ) I'll definitely be making the black wedding dress as well! Its so beautiful!
Also, Im in love with my headpiece ♥ I always want to wear it if I get a chance.
