Princess Jasmine by vani
Princess Jasmine
I created a custom Princess Jasmine design for one of my lovely clients. I included a belt of filigree jasmine blossoms, with teal rhinestones at the center, for her to attach her golden lamp to. So excited to see this worn! :love:

Colors of the Wind Gown by vani
Colors of the Wind Gown
I designed and fabricated an original "Colors of the Wind" gown, loosely inspired by the work of Guillermo Meraz, for a beautiful lady for The Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball held in Los Angeles, California. I loved collaborating with the client to create something truly unique and inspired by one of our favorite Disney movies!
The corset is a micro suede, the skirt is hand-dyed ombre silk charmeuse, the mask and necklace are sculpted of worbla, hand-painted, and the trim is feathers from various birds.

Golden Mint Accessories Set by vani
Golden Mint Accessories Set
I created a set of accessories for a lovely friend for The Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball held annually in Los Angeles, CA. She wanted feathered shoulder pieces, a choker and headpiece as well as the color scheme of gold, mint and ivory.
I had sewed alternating pearls to the golden lace and accented the choker and headdress with swarovski crystals. The feathers were hand-dyed and the roses were hand-painted. This is one of my favorite designs to date!

Sailor Iron Mouse by vani
Sailor Iron Mouse
Created a custom Sailor Iron Mouse (with lacey bloomers instead of briefs) for one of the lovely curators of the Moon Crisis Sailor Moon gallery show happening in Anaheim, California. The star is made of genuine crystal, the trim is dupioni silk, fur is faux and the rest of the costume is a soft, breathable cotton.

It's been so long since I've updated this journal, and it is high time.
For those of you who don't know, I have a new website portfolio with lots of pretty imagery of my work ranging from elaborate costumes to accessories for editorials.
