Voltron x Geek Couture: Shlav

This is what I get when I combined a certain Black Paladin with a certain OCD alien scientist all while listening to the Vocaloid song, Piano x Forte x Scandal.

What percentage of this reality would you wear this dress and perform at a Space Nightclub? You are free to use this design for your next Voltron cosplay! Please ask and credit me if you do so. I would love to see your works!

‘Annville’s Revival’ Preacher inspired Geek Couture dress from the Her Universe Fashion Show at San Diego Comic Con 2017. Featuring quilted silk ‘stained glass panels’ of each Preacher character on an angular skirt. Hand appliqued and then sealed with over 100 yards of rhinestones. Characters per panel include: Cassidy, Tulip, Fiore and DeBlanc, Arseface, Jesse Custer front and center and the Tulip’s iconic car in the back.

Fantastic news! I got into the Her Universe Fashion Show at SDCC 2014!

We’ve been asked not to post the design that got chosen, so here: enjoy one of the designs that didn’t make it in.

Of the three I submitted, this was the one I was actually the most excited about. I figured Hannibal probably wasn’t the first thought that came to mind when thinking “geeky fashion”, but I had to do it. Between the costume design/tailoring on the show, art direction, and cast/creative team-fannibal relationship… there was just a LOT to be inspired by. It was also the design I worked the most on: note the Murder Tie, tailoring, use of the Graham tartan, and - of course - flower crown. I was really proud of this, and was certain if I got in at all, this would be the pick.

But alas, it was not to be. Rude.

I’m actually quite happy with the one they did choose, though. Assuming they’re not repeating characters, I’m REALLY thrilled.

Bless these INCREDIBLE shots from debshots (❤️❤️❤️) of my doctorwho 1940s TARDIS inspired ensemble for the heruniverseofficial SDCC geek couture fashion show!! Complete with a clear shot of my custom printed TARDIS interior lining! 🙌 I had such a great time putting all of this together. Everything was made by me, including my lovely mini fedora and my TARDIS coat!

Today’s shopping trip for an appropriate lining for Crossing Streams was not at all successful. Complete opposite in fact. All I found was one cotton (not what I want at all) that was reasonably close to (but not exactly) the right color.
I have one more place I can look in town, and I’ll hit them up next week on my way to school. If that trip also yields nothing, I’ll have to either start ordering swatches or consider dyeing more fabric.

Voltron-themed couture and Paladin party dress doodles on my notebook awhile ago. OMG I’m now in love with fashion illustrations!

The back of the red an blue dress is just a big bow and all the styles are the same for all the other Paladins.

I had some concerns when I placed my lace in the iDye and it seemed to immediately go the darkest brown possible. Ten minutes in the bath, and a rinse and wash cycle later, and I have this. 😍😍😍

The nylon netting went maroon instead of brown, but when placed in front of an appropriately neutral background, blends quite well.
