Oscar Progress - Old understuff shot with wig
I took this crap photo after I finished the pants back in September. Technically, they're breeches; I made them based on my D'Eon breech patterns, though a tad bit longer. Looking back, they should have just been pants because I have some issue getting them into the boots when I'm dressing, because they're equestrian boots and have no zipper!
I plan to remake them as regular ankle-length pants eventually, perhaps in the style I saw in a book of French military uniforms, but maybe with hook and eye closures instead of buttons..well, unless I find some really low-profile buttons.
The shirt and cravat are part of my D'Eon costume, but since the characters have more or less the same style of shirt, it serves double duty. The brooch is definitely Oscar's however, and came from a few references through the anime series, but particularly one of her putting her coat on where I was all like "Hey, I could make that!"
The wig...I have to admit, it's kind of a weird selection. I've seen a LOT of different wigs used for Oscar, but this is the first one that I found that really had that late 70's/early 80's style already built in! I have two colors...I think this is the darker of the two, but with the camer exposure, it could be my lighter one too.
