To be a part of my dream shoot was beyond wonderful! So happy to prance around as a flower nymph in the Garden Creature series shot by photographer Greg De Stefano www.facebook.com/GregDeStefano…. This series was conceptualized by :iconjessicadru:, I created my gown and accessories/antlers (antlers available in my Etsy shop www.creatureshabit.etsy.com) and styled this fluffy wig. So fun!!

Cinderella by vani

Completed Cinderella gown for one of the loveliest ladies I know, Eve Beauregard~! It was such an honor to create this gown for her, and I had so much fun (maybe too much?) adding details. After the final fitting I decided to add an additional 1,440 crystals and 20 yards of tulle to the petticoat. The bodice, with custom cut and rhinestoned butterflies, is fully boned and the skirt features multi layers of netting and different shades and textures of organza.

Padme Gown by vani
Padme Gown
Follow Creature of Habit costumery on Facebook for more fantasy couture - www.facebook.com/creaturehabit
I created a unique rendition of Padme Amidala's "Picnic" gown for a client for Star Wars Celebration! I love this design for it's beautiful pastel and floral palette. The bodice features custom dyed appliqués with hand-cut rosettes, all sewn on by hand, and the skirt is a sand-washed silk with beaded floral "bursts". Though my favorite detail is the pastel ribbons sweetly swinging from her wrists.

Thank you so much!! :heart: I have been sewing for over 10 years, and while I took courses in school, I've learned so much from trial and error as well as from friends. There is also a wealth of knowledge online (articles, YouTube) that is super helpful! I wish you the best with your creations!!

plus, where do you buy your materials from?
in your Rapunzel cosplay I noticed that the dress had flowers at the hem, did you  buy those at a nearby store?

I purchase most of my materials from fabric stores near me. Some of my Rapunzel trim is hand-made and some of it is purchased. :)
Good luck with your creations!! :heart:
