I just finished my surface design bodice tonight.
Resist treatment done in flour paste on cotton coduroy and discharged with powdered bleach.
Part of my costume that includes a full elizebethan skirt using the same technique.
I plan to add some sculpted bones to the bodice when I have time.

I'm showing my inner anime nerd here, but the title of the piece is actually in reference to the popular song: [link]
That and I'm a huge Shakespeare fan. But Juliette is definitely not my favourite character.

Please do not make any comments about my body.

Thats pretty damn cool. Its classical and somewhat punk/gothic at the same time. It seems rather villainous?

Less Villainous, more, I guess, "black humour" maybe?

When I was doing acting in uni I kept getting forced into roles that focused upon looks. I was "the pretty girl". Which really is less of a role and more of a walking, talking stage prop. I've always felt the Juliette was never for me. The innocent ingenue lover who only exists for her man. So I made something to show that I am not. It's darker, yes, but I prefer characters that are strong and capable and experienced to ones that are helpless and innocent.

Yeah sometimes the main characters are real non-entities, right? Haha I think thats true on many levels, and not just in fiction. Strong characters are my favourite too, especially when they're anti heroes or misguided villains who manage to do good despite their inner conflicts and/or disdain for the community around them. Case in point, you mention that there is a dress component too but in my humble opinion I think the costume peaks with the tan trousers! Its more warrior/pirate-like. :XD:
