Swan Princess by vani
Swan Princess
Follow Creature of Habit on Facebook - www.facebook.com/creaturehabit

I am overjoyed to announce that I will be attending Gala Nocturna, a romantic costumed event held in Belgium hosted by Viona-Art. I have followed her work for a decade and have, along with my friend :iconlillyxandra: of Firefly Path (www.firefly-path.net) dreamed of attending one of Viona's enchanting events. This year my long-awaited wish is finally coming true!

This year the theme for the Gala is Swan Princess so I decided to create a flowing gown inspired by the innocence and beauty of Odette from "Swan Lake".
This design features many hand-crafted details such as a feathered corset, custom-made rosettes, Swarovski crystal and sequin detailing, a golden crown and hand-fabricated wings. I hope you enjoy!

Fawn Over Hello Kitty by vani
Fawn Over Hello Kitty
An original Fawn design I created for Hello Kitty Con's "Lovely Kitty Wonder" fashion exhibit. Featuring custom designed and printed Hello Kitty silk faille, taffeta, dupioni silk, laser cut leather, roses, gold painted branch antlers and hand made butterflies on the wrists, shoes, and in the hair. Lots of love and labor went into this design and I'm so grateful to have had it on display at Sanrio's first ever Hello Kitty Con. Love

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:

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:
