This is beautiful but during the time I've read CA and CP, I've imagine a different style of clothing. You know, those big hats and some fluffy layered skirts with matching feathery fans and for the boys, the tie that resembles a white handkerchief of sort, and a top hat. For Cyrus and Thomas, I can't decide if it's supposed to be a downgrade of what Jem and Will wear or the thing that the masters wore.
I think I mentioned this before, but I might be cosplaying Tessa (with some friends as other Infernal Devices characters) and I was wondering, would you mind if we use these costume designs of yours to help us with our costumes? We may go with different colors, but I think it will really help us bring the characters to life
Anyway, this is really, really, really well done. I love how the European and American cuts are so different, but still kind of similar
Thanks, I think you should go to town! That's the reason I wanted to go so specific, not just to give Cassie something to look at, but to give fans something to really wrap their brains around with their better musings.
That is a thing you'd have to ask Cassie, it may have been at one time, but these character designs go thru so many changes before coming back round again and ending the opposite of what they once were. So, maybe?
nah, I don't think I'd like a maid-servant. I really don't like people tidying up behind me. I live in my work space. Its a highly maintained fastidiously organized mess or I'd never get a damn thing done. What I will do is just order my siblings around whenever they visit 'do the dishes' 'mop the floor' and all that nonsense I can never be bothered to do.
I don't mind the staring. Actually gotten used to it over the years. Used to think it was cuz I was raised in a very ethnic area and I am clearly the mauve sheep of the black sheep family in the city of wolves. But no, traveling has shown me there is just something inherent about me people find threatening or curious enough to openly stare at or even criticize. My relatives included.
Children I mind less, because at least them I amuse.
And I've got some gear, lemme tell you, but it's not like I'd wear any of my corsets to go do the grocery shopping... but then I have brandished my swordcane when my bad knee acts up. Kind of evens out there.
I have a cobbler near me and know enough designers to possibly get these boots, and probably loads of other neat gear made.... cept then I'd have to pay for like materials and time and expense. And them being my friends, I'd want to pay them what they're worth, if not more. At that point, after THAT effort, I'd probably kill myself if I ever scuffed them up in the slightest. Never mind the more likely stepping in poo
doooood i want a swardcane!!! xD or just a staffcane in general, mostly because instead of applauding for events, i can just pound my can onto the ground. that would be so awesome. xD
and i would have more elegant, gothic era styled clothes if i wasn't still in high school living off my parents. >__> not that my parents are against goth stuff, it's just usually more expensive, and we're not exactly "wealthy" lol. yah.
and i don't mind ppl cleaning up after me as long as i'm not there when they do it. cuz then i feel like i should help, and get all OCD and end up doing it all myself. xD
I remember one of the directors at MoCCA caught me cleaning up even after the clean up crews left. When he called me OCD I genuinely took it as a compliment. I was all "Really?! You think so?", cuz I'd never been called that before... at least not to my face. I call it just being 'very particular'.
I've never been much of a fan of one genre of fashion over another. Possibly another reason why I didn't fit in growing up. I was to tame for punks, too punk for the goths, too grunge for the thugs, to trendy for the grunge... sadly, most of the clothes I wore, fuck that, I still wear are hybrids I throw together myself. I buy things in mass at Thrift Stores and tear them all apart just to sew them back together into something strange, unique and very new. Most times it works, although sometimes not so much.
I'm very D.I.Y.. I found out later it's apparently inherent. My mom used to do it too in High-School, not that she ever told/taught me. Strange, eh
And no, my Mom didn't approve when I was under her roof either. But it was harder for her to disapprove when the originals designs had been shredded beyond recognition.
