Freaky Mushroom Flowers What

Freaky Mushroom Flowers What - Elizabeth: the Golden Age - Queen Elizabeth
The longer I work on this thing, the more I notice it slipping away from the formal Elizabethan aesthetic into some crazy tropical wonderland whatsit. I keep being tempted to stick bright gold snakes on the big vine-stump things and birds on the huge alien mushroom flowers.

What do you think, would it look good? Liz would probably disapprove but eh, what does she know.

How on earth did you do this?? I guess I'm a bit of an embrodiery-tard, but this looks hellacomplicated.

I checked out your reports on your website for this costume and the progress is awesome The embroidery and beadwork is really amazing!

Also: LOL at the destructive testing of wigs.

I think that it looks great the way it is. If you keep adding to it, it will be too much. But thats just me. Dont stress over it too much. Amazing job!

Too much? Are you kidding? This thing is only at 60% fanciness! Way, WAY too much will be just barely enough.

You have great patience. What is this for? Or is it just for fun?

Awesome work for being board. All the pieces it all hand stitched on or is the gold embroidery?

The bullion work is applique, everything else is sewn on. (technically the applique is sewn on too, but you get me.)
