Commemorative child’s dress, 1863,

Burgundy velvet with ivory satin piping, mother of pearl buttons, and taffeta waist sash, the tails printed with the Prince of Wales plumes, ‘Ich Dien’ and 'Albert and Alexandra,’

The Prince of Wales, Albert Edward, married Danish Princess Alexandra on the 10th March 1863 at St George’s Chapel, Windsor. He was 21, and she 18. Their marriage was popular and promoted in the British press as a love match. Presumably this dress was made to wear at a celebratory party.

Steampunk Doll By CS : “My daughter designed her own Steampunk Cyborg Doll costume for Halloween this year and she and her mom hand made it. The eye piece on the mask is the lens from a point and shoot camera from Goodwill. 

She’s posed in front of matte slate gray paper with two soft lights, one right in front of her and one next to the camera. 
The shatter effect and "old-timey” grading were done in Photoshop. 
Happy Halloween.“
