Dark green georgette fabric with the white and yellow design throughout the sari. It’s absolutely beautiful, and perfect for a night out or any event. Maybe even try it with a corset! A dull yellow, or silver corset, or black, or a corset like mine! There is no blouse.

Costume created for a Lady Loki cosplay. Materials used were olive green and black silk, leather, brass findings and zipper stops as decoration.  The skirts and cape are fully lined, and the fur collar is detachable. The cape hooks to the bust line of the corset, which helps distribute the weight. Matching silk and leather fingerless gloves are mid bicep length. The Green leather bag was a Christmas gift from my good friend Alex at Make Believe Costumes. I decided to switch the more solid belt from the inspiration to a chain and medallion belt, with matching hair clips. The earrings match the pieces used to decorate the cape.

Day 10 of #31DIYsTilHalloween was my Catwoman cosplay!

I’ve been working on this one for months! I am THRILLED with how she turned out and I am so so so excited for my photoshoot for her next week. You might even be able to catch me as Catwoman at @thebourbonroom’s upcoming DCvsMarvel Halloween party! 😉😉😉

This cosplay took forever to find out but ended up costing me next to nothing. I found a catsuit on Ebay for under $20 (look around at reviews and make sure you’re paying attention to sizing info because they sometimes come in Asian sizing which is much smaller!) and the boots were my birthday present to myself a few weeks ago so I already had them in my closet. You can really wear any sexy stiletto heel boot. If you don’t feel like hunting for the perfect catsuit or you just don’t want to wear one, you can also wear plain or wet-look/leather leggings and a tight plain long sleeve black top or fitted leather jacket for the same catsuit effect!
My corset is from Isabella.

I found the mask at a costume shop for $6 and the goggle were $1.75 on eBay from China - keep in mind they take a month or more to ship! I ordered them back in August.

Weekly Featured Corsetiere #23: Waisted Creations

Waisted Creations

Luthien is a corset maker and the work she will present for you here will mainly be corsetry. She does sometimes make other things too, but corsetry is her absolute passion.

She does not make custom corsets or take on commisions. Sometimes she sell samples but this isn’t a job for her. This is her hobby. She is extremely passionate about corsetry and about sharing her artwork with others.

At the moment she is a full time student. She’s studying for her BA Viking Studies at UCL (something which she has incorporated into her work through her work based on Nordic Goddesses.)

Her ultimate goals are to make a living from her corsetry and to move to Norway. Perhaps she will be able to open a boutique there one day selling her work to people in person.

At the moment she creates corsetry as a hobby. It’s something she has been studying and producing for over a decade now and as she has progressed as a maker. She has come to see what she does as an art form. She hopes this is evident in her work.

She enjoys experimenting with corsetry and regularly tries out new techniques and materials. She also enjoys writing about her experiments and their results. She writes for the corsetry magazine Foundations Revealed and she has had articles published by other corsetry blogs and magazines.

I recently had the pleasure of doing a ‘make over photo shoot’ with Morgana and am excited to share with you the first photo. I’m modelling the Alecto Underbust Corset, which will soon be available to order in standard sizes! Alecto is made from satin coutil and is super smooth and comfortable. With 32 steel bones + a black busk it’s quickly become a staple in my wardrobe. Subscribe to our VIP list to hear when it becomes available.

Day 5 of #31DIYsTilHalloween: Blair from Soul Eater! I wore her to #ottawacomiccon in May and it was so much fun to bring her back out for Halloween!

For this cosplay I wore black spandex bike shorts, my favorite black velvet shrug, that faux leather crossover halter top you guys have seen a million times, my Venus Cage Bra from @agashibychristinao (thanks again babe!), my crescent moon choker from @sixfeetdeep_ (use coupon code “SCREAMQUEEN” for 13% off your order!), @pleasershoes @demonia.shoes PVC thigh high platform boots, my 20" Petite Josephine corset, and my DIY Blair hat!

I’ve gotten tons of questions about how I made the hat and I wanted to do a tutorial but there’s no way I’m taking that thing apart and putting it back together. I’ve been making giant witch/scarecrow hats for different cosplays for years and it becomes really easy after awhile! I made it almost exactly the same way I made my scarecrow hat from Day 4 (see earlier posts for that one).
I started with a wide brim black felt hat and built a base with newspaper and plastic bags, duct tape and pins. I wrapped black cotton fabric around the outside and pinned it in place. The spiral is made from gardening wire and duct tape, it took a couple hours to get it positioned the way I wanted it. You really have to just mess with it and keep reshaping everything until it looks the way you want! The white band is white scrap vinyl and black paint, pinned in place. And that’s it!

Let me know what you think of Day 5!

We recently had the pleasure of working with Morgana and are proud to present the second look from our photo shoot. She’s wearing the Selene corset, a dark twin to the Serena piece. This charcoal silk duchess satin is embellished with tulle, lace and thousands of hand sewn jet black crystal beads!
