Most of the clothes that I use are things I've made at one point or another. I think the most extreme home costuming I've done is a pair of boots (that I haven't used yet) that took about 6 weeks to make. Whew!
Currently, I have to do some pirate-type costumes for my friends. Then I'll probably be doing a gothy red-and-black directorate outfit. We'll see if I can make it look vampirish enough... >.>
This particular outfit was for a Christmas caroling group I was in for many years. It was a mid-1800's coachman's outfit (although they wouldn't let me use a lower top hat, which would have been appropriate).
Sadly, my second Victorian costume (Oscar Wilde) got borrowed and kept by someone. Phppt.
But yes, I do pretty much just design and make most of my costume stuff, when I have a use for it...
Bah... I always forget to come link people to work that uses their stock on their actual piece and amke their lives a lot easier. I keep forgetting that DA doesn't notify people anymore if I put it on the front. Anyway... enough of my babbling. I used your stock here in my latest piece. Do come and take a look.
Nice I hope you dont mind but i used this as reference for a picture. the picture can be found here if your interested [link] I wish I had known about you sooner. its rather hard to find good reference for clothing like this!
