diabolique dragon

I've been planning to dress up for Halloween, though not to put a whole lot of effort into it since I have a show that evening.  I had been debating between my ren faire garb and a goth look.  I mentioned that to anteka and she came up with the brilliant idea of doing goth ren faire.  Which is awesome!  My bodice is a deep green, that over all black would totally work.

So I've been putting an outfit together in my head all day.  Mostly I was scheming about how to get a full black skirt by next weekend; I thought I could reasonably pull the rest of the look together out of my closet.  Late this afternoon I pulled out my ren bodice to take a look at it and see if there was anything I would want to do to it for the costume.

With the ren bodice in my hands I realized that I bought it nine years ago, and probably haven't worn it in at least six.  This realization was caused by the size tags in the back which read "small petite".  Yeah, I haven't been small petite in anything for years.  Sigh.

But now I'm in love with this idea, so I'm going to call a friend who can hopefully either hook me up with a source for ren garb away from the faire, or might be willing to loan me a bodice for a night.  I've got a week, we'll see what I come up with.

Maybe this would be a good time to add to your wardrobe, to start your steampunk look?

That is my plan for the skirt, I found something cute online that can express ship. But I want to invest in a good corset, getting one built for me, and then won't happen in a week. And I'd rather not spend $30 bucks on a cheap corset now if I can help it. We'll see what happens.

That makes sense. Yay to the first wardrobe change purchase!

I'm really excited about the skirt, and am trying not to buy the six other things I like on the website all at the same time. Heh.
