I've been busy! Yesterday I did a super quick visit to Helsinki to meet family and participate in a group photoshoot with a bunch of gorgeous ladies. I'm hoping the pictures will turn out nice, I sure had a lot of fun anyway! I had also been thinking of the Demon Hunter armor, and successfully applied to the cosplay competition in Tampere Kuplii convention. It's at the end of the month, but luckily I've already drawn patterns for all armor pieces except the breast plate and have all the material for the armor. Getting fabric for the hood and cloak will be the easiest part.
I'll try to take some pictures along the way so I can show how the armor is coming together, it will be interesting and challenging, but hopefully fun!
Here's few more pictures of the outfit I wore to club Schatten. It was a great night, great music, good friends and some delicious red wine!
I had planned to wear the scale mail necklace I made, but when I tried it on with the corset, it seemed to be a little too much. So I got the chance to wear the prototype necklace of the design I did for Rogue! I love it to bits, it work super well with low cut tops. If all goes well, the finished pieces should arrive this week, so these babies will soon be available to buy :)

To compliment the corset, I wore my PVC plate boots I recently found second hand. My feet were hurting at the end of the night, but they looked so nice that I just had to endure ;D The hair is done with lots of teasing and a teased ball of fake hair hidden in the middle of it all. A great way to easily get some extra volume!
I'm off to work on the Demon Hunter's bracers a bit before going to bed!
I'm planning to wear my scale mail corset tomorrow for Club Schatten, but despite my vast pile of necklaces, I felt like nothing looked good with it. It has apparently been long enough for me to remember what a pain in the but making scale mail is, because I dug up the left over scales and a pile of rings that were too big for the scales. An hour or two later, behold, my new scale mail necklace!
It's made of two rows of ring mail and three rows of small scales. I quickly found out that stainless steel leaves dark marks on skin when in direct contact, but I'm hoping what ever is causing the stains will come off after some use, or when I wash the necklace.
I'm super pleased with how it came out, I just googled a few pics for inspiration and tried to make something similar with the left overs from the corset. Maybe I'll try to make a bracelet too, it would look so nice with the corset and necklace!
My newest corset is also showing in these pics, but I'll post better pictures later. It's absolutely gorgeous and deserves its own post!
Look what I made! It's a fan headdress with lace, glitter foam, silk flowers and rhinestones. It was done for a special purpose and I promise to tell you more when the time comes :) I was wanted to give you a little peek because I'm so proud of the headdress!

Those golden thingies are Thai dance fingers, little hollow metal tubes tapered on one end that fit on your fingers. I thought they brought the right kind of magic to the photo! I'm wearing a Chinese eBay dress and a lovely PVC waist cincher by Artifice clothing. I tried to do the make up in a Chinese opera make up style, but it doesn't really look anything like it when done in purple instead of the usual red. Oh well! It still works well with the purple of the headdress. I think.
I've been playing with my new Sugarpill shadows, they are just so sparkly and pretty! Here's a look done with Charmy and Pastelle. Pastelle on the lid, Charmy in the crease and on lower lid. I blended out the edges of Charmy with Pastelle too. A light, simple and very easy to wear look!
