I loooove Lineage II designs. So when I caught a glance at the Auctioneer the first time, I was like WHOA! That is a REALLY cute costume!!! and I took multiple views for the intent of maybe possibly making it someday, cause it was a crime NOT to....
and then I get word that I can hitch a ride along with friends to Ohayocon in 06. I was at home from school so no sewing lab, and most of my costumes were up there too....so I figured I needed to make a new one...and Aucty was right there on my cosplaylab "intending to do these" page, so I thought hey!!! This has no insane detailing or painting! Its just construction! I can whip that out in 2 weeks!
Yeah that was interesting. But I LOVE the fabrics I got for her, the colors were PERFECT! The corset was a pain fitting, cause I draped it on a dressform at school, but I had to alter it a bit for me, so that involved lots of taking out and taking in and bwa! and then the shoulders were a real pain too cause I couldnt figure out how to get them to stay up and look nice (I had ideas such as triple-thick interfacing, wire in the middle, you name it) but they ended up turnin out awesome! Hooray!
...oh and then the night before, the gold ribbon I got for the skirt....I didnt realize there was very very thin wire in it. So therefore the skirt acted a bit weird when I wore it cause there was wire everywhere...sad! and then I had a friend get me white gloves to finish it, but I couldnt get them till I was in Ohio and they turned out to be too big ;___; Le-sadness! So Aucty went without gloves. Use your imagination I guess ^^
But it was sooooooooo fun to wander around in, it was really really comfy and I made the corset awesomely so it wasnt too tight and constricting but very comfortable ^_^ and <3s to my ruffles, I was going to cheat on them but during experimenting I figured out doing them this way makes them look exactly like the picture, so I did. Extra fabric, but extra accuracy. Mmmm yes. I love this costume ^_^
