My new favorite dress

I own quite a few sexy dresses. I can't help it. I'm a girly girl. And what girly girl doesn't want to feel pretty and sexy? Well the dress I found at the Metro in Portland last weekend makes me feel prettier and sexier than any other dress! You can click the thumbnails or the cut to see the full size pictures of the dress:

I'll be taking the dress to the seamstress this week so I can have it hemmed in time for Norwescon! I'll probably wear it to the dance Saturday night, with the chainmail over it!

more costumey goodness

The metal bra from this post arrived today. It's a much lighter and more flimsy metal than I was expecting, but still pretty. It doesn't actually look all that great on just over my skin, I think it really is designed for a girl with a bit more meat on her and bigger breasts. But when I tried it on over a black PVC bra it looks all bad-ass cyber goth girl! The contrast of the silver metal over the black PVC is quite stunning. So I'll wear it like that to clubs or like that with the chainmail top over it and have one bad-ass cyber goth girl belly dance costume.

To wear the chainmail skirt though, I still need something to absorb the weight of it. Even over my dress it still digs into my skin. I'll need to hit the fabric store this week and buy a belt size strip of fake black fur to have a soft fur cushion like belt under it.
