Why I chose to make this costume:
I've been eyeing this outfit since I first decided to be Lum... The artwork is very beautiful and I liked the costume with all it's beading and draping sheers.
How I made this costume:
I created this entire outfit in a week, working off and on. The dress was sewn with an altered pattern and has an extra gold trimming. I bought French Shantung and used white sheer fabric I already owned. All of the accessories were also made by me - the armband, the jewelry, the belt, beading, hairpiece... and the crystal ball of course.
My thoughts on this costume:
I personally love this outfit because it¹s so whimsical, and since making it I’ve used it on multiple models for photoshoots and promotions for Faerie Grove. We just left the wig off and added matching wings and headpieces and the result was stunning.
