I’ve been seeing this photo going around multiple facebook pages and tumblrs with no credit to the model and/or fabricator. A few blogs have even gone so far as to remove the photographer’s watermark. I thought I’d repost it with proper credit, as stealing images is not cool.
“When is a prizefight like a beautiful lady? When it’s a knockout” - The Riddler
The Riddler is a flamboyant and extravagant comic book super villain, appearing as an enemy of Batman. Obsessed with riddles and puzzles, the question mark serves as is signature visual motif.
This pin up playsuit design consists of a halter bandeau top with adjustable ties and a matching circle skirt. The bandeau is fully lined in a deep purple broadcloth and features purple piping at the top seam and purple buttons down the centre. The halter collar has adjustable snap closures behind the neck, inspired by a men’s collared shirt it is designed to accentuate the curve of the bust. The bandeau is adorned with multiple question mark appliqués that were individually placed and sewn carefully into place.
The circle skirt features two front pockets with matching question marks appliqués and white trim at the bottom. The skirt is fully lined with the deep purple broadcloth, with a hidden cheeky detail. When the bottom of the skirt is flipped up, you can see “Riddle me This…” written in appliqués on the inside. All appliqués were designed by hand and painstakingly sewn into place. The skirt is closed with a zipper and a button on the waist band to further bring in the waist.
