[feeling... | ARGH!!!]

I think I solved the costuming problems for Maker Faire. If this works I'll be wearing it on many other occasions sans wings. Basically it's a black cotton velveteen Victorian style jacket with a bustle poof attached to the back so I can just put it on and BAM! -> bustled. My black leather jacket I made years ago has the same feature but being black leather it is both heavy and hot which makes it NOT ideal for Maker Faire or other crowded events.

Leather version:


Now I just have to decide what accent fabric I want to use. I am thinking Venise lace and maybe a little of the new colour shifting silk... maybe.

In unhappy news, looks like the video card in my gaming laptop has packed in.
