Steampunk: Taffeta and Lace by CreationByChristine Steampunk: Taffeta and Lace by CreationByChristine
This costume is my summer creation for my daughter who will be a vendor at SenshiCon 2012. The heavy brown taffeta comprises the foundation of the coat and skirt, trimmed out in Grandmother's lace. The lace stockings are offset against the olive and brocade lining. The jewelry is of antiqued metal added as embellishment on the double breasted coat.

I would actually wear the jacket if the lace on it was different... But overall it's beautiful, I totally love it!

I regret not getting a picture with your daughter while she wore this dress at Senshi-Con. It is one of the better dresses I've seen in a WHILE. Your sense of style is amazing. You deserve a DD. =)

Ooh, I've never heard of SenshiCon, but the name perks my interest (even though I realize it simply means soldier or warrior, the Sailor Moon fan in me has gone on alert). Do they have a website?

Senshi-Con does have a website! I can message you the link if you are interested. I am one of the Senshi-Con staff members. =)

Magnificent dress! Makes me glad that such talent still exists....I rarely see someone getting all the attention because of an outfit that's actually worth it....Happy you brought back some of my faint in humanity I suppose! Haha.

This is a very lovely outfit. A lot of steampunk outfits that I see go to the extremes, but this has enough to suggest the theme elegantly without being overstated. Very well done.

Again so pretty! Love the fact that the lining of the jacket is at least as pretty as the rest of the outfit :D So you'd really have to wear it with a skirt shorter than the jacket, otherwise you wouldn't see anything of it: would be such a shame! :p

An ohhhh that Venetian lace you used: gorgeous :heart: Your daughter is very lucky to have you as her mom :D

Thank you for your interest in my clothes. I feel I was born in the wrong century as well-put me in the Klondike Gold Rush! The accessories you create show your passion for lace! No outfit is complete without lace, boning, or grommets. As a newbie I will need a little time to get used to navigating DA. So much inspiration!

You're very welcome! :D
Haha awesome to meet other people that feel like they're born in the wrong century ^^

And you're right: lace is heavenly :D It gives such a nice finish to just about everything (I swear I could put lace on almost everything and feel like I improved it dramatically :D)

Yeah dA has a lot of things to offer, especially when you're new here and still have to discover all the 'great' artists :p If you want I can give you a couple of links to certain persons galleries I know, so you can have a headstart? :D Unless you want to search for them on your own ofcourse ;)

Appreciate links to other galleries; I'm trying to learn how to navigate around DA. I'm also sewing a mini hat to go with the dress!

Cool! Curious to see the matching hat :D

Okay here comes the huge list of persons that might interest your :p:

here are a couple of jewellery makers that make some bombastic stuff :D:
Desireemorte: [link] , Gildedgears: [link] , byrdldy: [link] , Leboudoirnoir: [link] , Sodacrush: [link] , Necrosarium: [link] , Harlequinromantique: [link] and Nocturnehandcrafts: [link]

And here are the people that make awesome clothes:
Abigail709b [link] , Zenandcoffee: [link] , Ateliersylphecorsets: [link] , Ladycafelfenlake: [link] , Blackvelvetsitc: [link] , Decosadesign: [link] and Stahlrose: [link]

dbvictoria [link] (she makes wonderfull umbrellas though you might have to look for them a bit through her gallery), also: Maidestreasuries: [link] , Imperialfiddlesticks: [link] awesome hats! and also the most stunning corsets eeever from Vcoutureboutique: [link]
some other artisan crafts: Diarment: [link]

a couple of models that make+ show awesome clothes: La-esmeralda: [link] and MadmoiselleMelli: [link]

some digital/drawing art: Dark-spider: [link] and Fluttermouse: [link]

and this has nothing to do with clothing, but honestly, someone who doesn't like this is just a horrible person haha :D most cuuuute teddy bears ever: Jan-chic: [link]


That's about it ^^ I have a couple more but I thought these are the most impressive ones and you'll probably already have a heard time sifting through these :D
Oh by the way, I don't know whether you've already figured that out (because that took me quite a long time), but if you're looking at the uploads of someone it might occur that people have interesting things on their frontpage, with the section 'newest uploads', which you don't see if you go to their gallery. It's possible they stashed it in the little subfolders on the left of your screen :D Because if you upload a new deviation you can choose to do that in your general 'gallery' and/or also immediately in the little subfolders you can create to give your gallery a bit more structure. It's possible to upload them in both at once, but some people only upload it directly in the little maps :p so just saying that, took me a long time to figure that one out :D
