(WARNING: Kinda BIG)
A Challenge was issued...and I answered! MUAHAHAHAHAHA!
Anyhoo, A contest was suggested by the administrator of the SA Sailor Moon Club, *B2Topaz
, to design a "Princess Dress" for her own Fan-Senshi character's Dark Side, Dark Topaz.
Back view is also provided to define all aspects of the Dress' Details.
The dress had to be 75% Black and White, so I kinda went with the basic classic 1800's Regency look combined with some Gothic accents.
The corset design of the upper torso is decorated with a tribal fire design that was inspired by a friend's tattoo.
The sleeves are made of a two piece light silken cloth that is inlaid the upper corset and wrap around to the back where it is pinned by a decorative gothic Broach/Pin, and the rest of it falls and flows downward like a ribbon tail. I wanted the whole thing to look like wings of some sort, like a Gothic fairy or something.
She is adorned with the firey orange Regal Topaz, since the light side wears the blue topaz. I also added Red gems to accent with the white pearls.
The ribbon atop her head is to match a similar white ribbon the "Light" side version of Topaz wears in a picture provided in *B2Topaz
If anyone would like to make this dress for REAL, please credit me for the design and allow me to see pictures of your finished product. Thank you!
