Price is $200 + shipping and includes almost the entire outfit. I spent $200 on materials alone, so I just want to get the supply cost back. I am willing to accept payments for the outfit through the end of December. Costume will be shipped upon completion of payment, and I accept paypal and money orders.
This is a handmade Derpy Hooves steampunk gala dress by the professional costume studio Stuffed Panda Studios. The outfit took 100+ hours to construct, and I will not be making a duplicate! Derpy was made for me to wear when I was judging the costume contest at Midwestria for a mere six hours. There is nothing wrong with the dress, but I enjoy making new costumes and will likely never wear it again - I'd rather see it with someone who will have fun with it!
Materials & Construction
-Derpy's dress was made from satin and is well sewn with straight seams. The tail was constructed with two colors of tulle and all ties are silver ribbon. Coat is lined with a contrasting satin. Coat is removeable via front buttons, while the skirt is removeable with a back zipper and clasp.
-The bustier was made from a limited run of muffin cotton fabric. It took a lot of searching to find muffin fabric (and not cupcakes!) so it was a great find.
Sturdy plastic boning was sewn into the bustier to help hold it's shape. There is a zipper in the back for an easy on and off.
-Necklace, earrings, and bubbles are very delicate. The bubbles will be removed from the wig and shipped in bubble wrap, so you'll have to reassemble them when it arrives (don't worry, it's very easy to do). Just be sure to be careful with them!
-Goggles are basic silver goggles with paper eyes attached to the inside - they are removeable if you desire.
-The wings are not incredibly solid, so you'll have to be careful with them (as long as you don't bend them, you should be okay). The framework was made from cardboard and plastic, and the outside is sewn fleece. There is a ribbon on each side that ties under your arms. The color of the ribbon matches the dress.
The outfit can easily be washed in a washer on delicate cycle with cold water. Do NOT place in a dryer, hang it up to air dry! It can be ironed by placing a damp towel between the dress and iron. Wings can be surface cleaned with a damp cloth.
These are the MAX measurements for the dress.
Arm Length: 25''
Height: 5' 10'' (if you are taller or shorter, it will just affect how long the skirt is on you).
If you're looking for a really unique outfit for your next convention, this will do the trick! She was quite popular at the convention.
