Cosplay 101: How Not To Mirror Image

Hi everyone!  It’s been a while since I’ve written a Cosplay 101 post but here I am with the latest tip from me to you. :) 

Lately I’ve developed a bit of a pet peeve (or more accurately an irk) for something I’m noticing more often: Mirror Imaging.  What do I mean by “mirror imaging”?  When you look in the mirror you are seeing a mirror image of yourself, everything appears reversed.  For example: Writing on your shirt will be backwards in the mirror, a pin you are wearing over your heart appears on the right side of your reflection’s chest, etc.  When creating a costume many people mirror their characters instead of putting themselves in that characters’ shoes, sort of speak. 
Let’s say you’re creating Elsa’s (from Disney’s Frozen) skirt.  The slit is on the right side of the skirt but many times people mirror the character and thus it winds up on the left side.
As a dance instructor I would often mirror what I wanted my students to do when facing them.  This insured that they were using the side of the body that I wanted.  If I wanted them to use their right arm, I would use my left when facing them so they could mirror my movements.  To achieve a mirror image you are reversing everything.
That’s not what you want when creating costumes based on accuracy.  You have to flip everything when looking at a still image.  If that slit is on the left in the photo that means it will be on the right when worn by you.  I hope this makes sense and will help you with your accuracy in the future!

♡ REQUESTED ♡

Wow I have not done one of these in a while! But here it is! This was a request for some summer outfit ideas for a smaller person but still looking cute! The first outfit is perfect for a hot summer day with a blue crop top but still some what conservative with the blue patterned kimono. The accessories give the outfit a laid back vibe! The next outfit with the pattern maxi skirt is another good summer outfit! The bralett is super cute with the halter neck and the slit in the skirt makes you feel bold and amazing! The green dress is one of my favorites! The color is to die for and the tan accessories play off of it well! Finally the blue patterned romper is a little more scandalous but I know you can rock it! The simple accessories make the romper the star of the show!

A post wherein film writer Kimberly Luperi explores Edith Head’s costuming for THE LADY EVE (’41).

“Colonel” Harrington: Ah, there you are. Well, it certainly took you long enough to come back in the same outfit.

Jean Harrington: I’m lucky to have this on. Mr. Pike has been up the river for a year.

How Charles Coburn and Barbara Stanwyck got away with those lines in THE LADY EVE (‘41) during the Production Code era is beyond me, but that’s beside the point. The dress the “Colonel” alludes to in this scene, a stunning black two piece, ranks as one of my favorite ensembles of all time. The glistening crop top and high slit skirt are exceedingly glamorous, sexy and revealing  - just the right combo for Jean to work her magic. It’s a flawless marriage of costume and character, officiated by Hollywood’s most famous designer, Edith Head.

Stanwyck assumes two very different identities and wardrobes in THE LADY EVE ('41). As Jean, a card shark out to con the wealthy on a South American ocean liner, her attire skews flirty and brash, with a global streak. As Lady Eve, a British socialite guise Jean dons to access the aristocracy in retaliation for Charles Pike (Henry Fonda) breaking up with her, her outfits appear refined and regal.

In 2014, designer Deborah Nadoolman Landis introduced THE LADY EVE (’41) as part of a UCLA Film and Television Archive series on Edith Head and quoted the celebrated designer as proclaiming the “basic test is if the clothes submerge the personality into the character… That is what the costume designer must do - disguise the actress.” While it’s obvious to viewers that Jean and Eve are one and the same, Charles is humorously blind to this fact, and without a doubt, Head’s styles played a sizable role in seducing and concealing the reality from him. “I had to keep Jean’s look as different from Eve’s as I possibly could,” Head affirmed, and that she did.

As color translated to the screen in THE LADY EVE (’41) in shades of black, gray and white, Head resorted to more particular methods to convey her multi-faceted leading lady’s intentions and personalities.  For one, she used contrast to great effect in early scenes. Shading disparity exists in Charles and Jean’s garments when they appear together, like her black dress and his light colored suit in the scene described above, which emphasizes the difference in their characters. Additionally, Head tended to outfit Jean in black, white or a combination of both to make her appear “a tad coarse.” The designer also brought the Latin look “out of resort life and into the everyday working world,” since Jean meets Charles on a boat coming from South America. Believing that Stanwyck looked terrific in serape and poncho cuts, Head added items likes capes and tie-front pieces to Jean’s wardrobe.  Finally, she made use of reflective materials such as sequins, crystals and beads as well. These objects injected a blithe, amorous touch to Jean’s attire. 

Head switched gears with Eve, often styling her in lavish fabrics and lighter, more modest colored gowns, which provided an aura of distinction. Head also designed with reflective items on Eve’s ensembles, as evident in the intricately beaded, illustrious white gown she first appears in. On this character, these classy objects serve to enhance Eve’s attempt at gentility. 

The designs certainly did the trick - for Jean, Eve and the leading man, too. According to columnist Hedda Hopper, when Fonda witnessed Stanwyck in Eve’s introductory outfit, he exclaimed: “Gosh! No wonder that script says I’m to fall in love with you. You’re making it mighty easy.”

i’ve seen a lot of lapis redesigns going around so i thought i’d put my own sub par design skills to the test and make my own design for her

lapis’ design has always been pretty boring to me and i actually much preferred her duller/darker color palette from when she was first introduced so i went with some more muted shades of blue and tried to add some more details to her design without going too over the top. also made her a bit chubbier bc who doesnt love fat gems.

i messed up and forgot to draw her gem in the back view but i promise its there,,,,,,,somewhere. more on what i changed+added under the cut!

February 14, 2017- Selena Gomez made jaws DROP when was spotted leaving her hotel in NYC and showed off her red HOT in a custom Givenchy cut out blouse with zipper detail and skirt with slit from the Spring 2017 Collection. Unfortuately since this outfit its custom, you can’t buy it. Personally, i’m devastated because I am DROOLING over it!  

She wore it with Gianvito Rossi heels

Azura’s outfit is as weird as all heck tbh. Mostly unecessary straps. lots of flowers. almost completely covered except for weird spots (upper back although kinda canceled out by hair, a side ab window, and half a pair of pants)

and i know real people designed her but it’s funny, to think of her thought process? of designing this outfit? because that’s not some normal outfit jazzed up no

you think she sat down with Oboro at some point and just listed off things she wanted because Oboro would probably love a challenge of making those choices aesthetically pleasing and good for a singer/dancer

“Oboro I need an ab window” “like a crop top?” “no it’s a whole dress, just, show the side of my right abs” “you got it”

“also straps” “why straps?” “…no reason”

and gotta have the slit skirt in order to dance and fight well in it make it all nice and flowy

also i love how the “dark” version of her outfit actually covers her up even more bc the ab window gets filled in and she gets a veil thank u god for not having a “sexier evil” version even tho nohr isn’t evil sh

show exactly 1 leg and the smallest bit of abdomen above your waistline just to tantalize people

anonymous asked:

What are the tznius rules/guidelines in your community and is that generally the norm for Orthodox Jews?

I’ll answer regarding women because that’s what I’m most familiar with (I tend not to see men during the week, so I only see them on Shabbos when they are wearing suits).

Women in my neighbourhood wear skirts below the knee, tights, closed toe shoes, and shirts with sleeves that cover both the elbow and collarbone. No denim or “tube” skirts, or skirts with slits. I’ve never seen anyone wear anything like MimuMaxi or those trends that are really popular in the modest fashion hashtags on Instagram or Pinterest (wearing pants under shift dresses/oversized shirts).

Each community is different so I can’t say if we’re the “norm” or not. I definitely think people to the left of my community might think we’re super shtark for always wearing tights and closed toe shoes, but I also think people to the right of my community would never wear the sheer tights some of us do (ie they only wear thick stockings). So it depends who you ask if we’re the “norm” ;)
