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

Her hairstyle is quite striking. Also I love that corset and I want it.

I want a ribbon corset too. The problem is finding ribbon wide enough in this day and age. I suppose I could just cut fabric the proper width and then face it with something (sewing terminology that probably means nothing to anyone but me)

Do-it-yourself ribbon-making! And I think I remember facing from back when my mother was a sewing fanatic... maybe...

Yeah.

Love the corset! (Love corsets in general. I'm waiting patiently for them to come back in fashion for everyday wear, lol.) Gorgeous work. The hair is beautiful!

you and me both - people are willing to starve themselves to be skinny, I don't see why they aren't willing to be squished a little for the same end! And you don't even have to lay off food with a corset! Its like a win-win situation!

"Mmmm. Pizza... Don't worry! I got a corset that constricts like an anaconda! Mwahaha! Pass another slice!"

Love it. :)

Wow...she looks dreamy!!!
The picture of the corset seems painful, although the soft colors in it are beautiful! And blue compliments blond a lot :)

what's interesting is that ribbon corsets are much less restrictive than most of the other corset styles that were popular in the same era!

Somehow, I love her hair and the ribbons flowing effects. The fact you combined parts of rockabilly and ribbon corsets ngggh <3

I love combining seemingly antithetical elements into one design!
