Front and back of my full Labyrinth Masquerade Ball costume.
I did not make the dress itself; I actually bought it to wear to my high school prom (which I ended up not attending) ten years ago. I think this was its destiny all along.
The armor was designed with the dress in mind, to compliment the lines and the beading motifs. I made some alterations to the dress, including cutting out the back to match the armor. I love how the whole look turned out and I’ll probably bring it to Dragon Con next month!
My outfit for the Labyrinth of Jareth masquerade ball ❤️
Cape: Antique Victorian mourning mantle
Corset: Corsetry and Romance
Back bustle: Unknown
Front bustle: Handmade
All else was found in various places.
Almost done with the armor assembly. I’m still waiting on a few more brass pieces to arrive!
This costume is an original design I’ll be wearing to The Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball this weekend. My friend Lauren Moore is creating a companion costume to match mine! Can’t wait to show you guys the finished looks.
