Rowan Dryad to Summer Titania by BelovedUnderwing Rowan Dryad to Summer Titania by BelovedUnderwing
So here is a little peak into how my mind works through a design/concept of a new costume. I only added the best out of my mountain of sketches. There is no need for me to show how often I re-work the same idea till I'm happy enough to move onto the next idea. Just ask my friends that have seen me use a pad of tracing paper re-working a single concept. :)

I think the two drawings at the bottom would look amazing on stage.

Ohh wow. This is actually something I had designed for a World of Wearable Art, except for a faun; the wooden corset and leaf skirt.

I love your process work for this. It is exactly what my tutors get me to do for fashion design and graphics, and what I do for writing as well. But it works and the ends results, compared to what you started with are amazing, are they not? You can see all the developments and influences too. Truly fun and amazing

A Rowan Dryad? Neat!
As for the process, yeah I picked it up in collage too. It's always fun to look back and see how you ended up with the finished product. So I thought I'd share after a few watchers expressed interest in seeing theses concepts.

I'll have to look up this "world of wearable art" is it a website?

Not a Dryad, just the bark corset and leaf skirt for a faun.
It is always fun to see process work.
It is a fashion and talent show held in Wellington in September. I went to the one in 2010, it was amazing. Some of the entrants were absolutely stunning, convinced me I had to enter. It is very prestigious, and people enter from all over the world. Brings in a lot of tourist for New Zealand; it is one of our main attractions.

A wooden corset would be something I'v e never seen or would have even thought possible. Im sure with jeremys clear skill with woodworking it will turn out superb but I hope it doesnt become uncomfortable over the course of the day! be sure to pad the inside :)

I did a little research and was unable to find a wearable wooden corset. I found leather made to look like wood. I found wood craved to look like a corset, but I couldn't find anything that was wood and functioned right. So Jer and I talked it over and decided it is something we still want to accomplish, just not for this round of costumes. He's of the mind as long as we make it to "fit" me and not the normal way of wearing a corset, line it very well and make it so I can sit down while wearing it, it's very doable. :D

maybe it could be done using a series of individually formed interlocking ribs of some kind...

We talked about the samurai armor look and nixed early on, though that would be more horizontal interlocking bits, then vertical...but anyway I know he wants to hide the joints if we make it segmented...which is the only damn way I'll be able to move it in....so yeah. Segmented wooden strangeness and have it support the top half and slim the middle and frame the bottom half, I don't think that too much to ask, do you? ;)

no i dont. I mean I was just gonna suggest that you splice plant materiel into the flesh around your actual ribs and GROW one by the time faire rolls around but if you want to settle for a monumental TECHNICAL feat instead of a BIOLOGICAL one thats cool too... i guess. slackers ;)

I cannot wait to see these once they're constructed. You both always manage to create the most stunning pieces. It's exciting to actually get a sneak peak of what we might be able to expect this coming faire season too

well none of these asides from the bottom one are getting made. These are all just the concept work that led me to the idea of the a saree and then to the summer theme for Titania. But you'll get to see the final version up close and personal once faire opens ;)

Thanks darlin'

ups and downs mostly. We intend to hit up MarCon but will most likely be in street clothes, as we've had no time or money to work on anything worthwhile right now.

I understand, I'm still in my old costume, which I'm not even sure if I'll wear. I think my mom and I will probably go on Saturday, but after Ohayo-con, I just don't think we can do a three-day stint again. I'm sorry to hear that things are so rough, ^_^ I wish I didn't have alot of the time I have now to work on stuff, I just don't have the motivation!

I'm working two part-time jobs trying to help keep things afloat, but I hit a deer on the 22nd and now my car in in the shop getting repaired...it's making it very hard for me to balance the two jobs with just one car between us. Luckily my morning shift job is within walking distance...2.5 miles which I can do in about 45 minutes...in dress clothes :faint: which is better then not having jobs at all.

As for costumes, Jer has his stilts, but after HorrorHound (a con we were at last weekend) where he landed on his butt twice and his knee the third time, I think he's done wearing them indoors. Too many people under hoof. He may still enter the costume contest thought...I haven't really talked to him about it. I think I'm just gonna goth/neoVictorian it up just for shits and giggles.
