Anyone's opinion on my dress

I was wondering if my dress would fit EGA. That way if i wear it to an convention i can give a proper answer. Here are some links to the pixs and i have more views of the the dress in my gallery.

I welcome any opinion's. I do have a feeling that the dress's over all look is missing something so i welcome idea's of any add-ons to possibly fit the EGA look.

Wow that is a stunning dress!

However, I think it may be a little 'too much' for Aristocrat. Specifically, I mean the bustle and the train. I associate EGA (especially when in reference to Mana's clothing line) with cleaner and crisper lines than GL or EGL and with fewer ruffles.

Don't change your dress though! It is gorgeous! And of course, this is only my opinion. I would suggest just going online and surfing online stores and articles and forming your own opinion of what Aristocrat is

It's a lovely dress, but I think it might be a little too "historical-ish" to make me think EGA right away-- the first thing I thought of looking at the line of the dress was an 18th century mantua in the skirt, and a sort of pre-Raphaelite look in the bodice. Accessories could go a long way to change the look to a more modern/pseudo-Victorian EGA sensibility-- a hat or cape/capelet perhaps. Also, I've worn trained EGA gowns to cons before, and they WILL get stepped on no matter how small the train is-- for practicality, you might want to reduce the size of the train or eliminate it entirely.

Wow that is a beautiful gown. I agrre with what others are saying though. The train will get stepped on so either find a way to pin it or eliminate it. Without the train it would bbe grand to wear to a Con Ball/Masqurade*
And I also agree with it being a bit too historical for an EGA look..but still beautiful. You do amazing work ^^

I would recomend that you add a very ruffled petty coat or a slim hoop skirt under it. You can make the petty coat fall into the train to help give it some body as well. EGL seems to be more of a late victorian / edwardian style then what your dress is, but its beautiful none the less.

It's beautiful but I agree with the others reasons for why it is not EGA.

Thanks, I don't plan on changeing the dress. The bustle (bow) is removeable otherwize I can't get into the dress....lol. This is what I feel is Aristocrat, but I guess I went alittle to Elegant.

sweeney todd involves a lot of blood and gore, so be careful if you're squeamish!
(i love the music, but the movie definitely squicked me out. v_v )
