Blue by janey-jane Blue by janey-jane
Second in a series of three: I realized that I have a set of prismacolor markers that are just drying out because I've always been a little afraid of them. I also have a tendency to use muted, toned-down tones, and I wanted to force myself to use bright, pure colors.

I pull my clothing and costume design from a bajillion sources that are just sort of a jumble in my head; so I tried to keep note of inspirations behind each outfit, in case anyone finds that sort of thing interesting:

:bulletblue:Ribbon Corsets (especially THIS one)
:bulletblue:Barrel-cut sleeves a la Madeleine Vionnet
:bulletblue:The way kimono sleeves bunch up when tied out of the way with tasuki
:bulletblue:Rockabilly
:bulletblue:Architectural hairstyles

So pretty! :D Looks (to me) almost like a European version of a geisha girl.

So gorgeous, I love the detailing of her outfit and all the styles you combined and how brillantly they all work together, I don't know what I love more the corset or the kimino sleeves the hair and the ribbons, it's all so gorgeous. :heart:

Corsets scare me, but she looks fine, so it's all good, I guess. :D
Seriously though, I like this one, too. My favorite elements of this picture have to be her hair and ribbons. There's such a sense of fluidity here...

I have this long standing love affair with corsets. On one hand I understand why they've been maligned by our society, but I also know so much about their history that I can't help but feel they've gotten an unfairly bad rep. But then again, I am biased! :D
