Abarat Costume modeling
Okay, so I am making Christopher Carrion's Candlemas fur coat because the description sounded awesome and my workplace is freezing and as a rule if you must wear a jacket there it has to be creepy.
However, the friend I got willing to model as Carrion (she has a better build for it, can bind better and her hair takes better to a bald cap) will not be visiting until March. I am making the jacket this week and want to post pictures as soon as possible.
What should I do as far as modeling it myself since there is no way I can pull off Carrion?
1. Princess Boa wearing the coat, which might make symbolical sense based on her characterization in Absolute Midnight.
2. A stitchling with a feminine form in the coat.
3. Genderbend it since my breasts and hair are the things keeping me from doing a good job as Carrion and just do full on make-up, head tank and tubing with the coat and call it 'Christine Carrion'. Keep in mind, it wouldn't be sexified, just it would have hair and maybe a corset involved.
Which would be best for just some professional shots of the jacket do you think? I hope someone here has read the series, because I could really use some advice on this.
