First things first, I didn't fully finish the day outfit for the fall tornure, there is still the lining to do. On the other hand, the ball outfit was ready to wear when I had to go on Saturday! So I call that a win and will return to the day outfit once I return from my vacation...
I threw together the top pretty quick and dirty. It is based on my usual corset pattern, but while searching for all the necessary ingredients for a true corset I discovered that I didn't have enough spiral steel. And since flat steel bones are rather uncomfortable, I went for the thin 5mm ones. And those are not quite capable of keeping in my sweet little tummy... So I was lazy and did the top with only two layers and wore a corset underneath.
The flower decoration was again done by the lovely *wollmaus* and sewn on by hand. I was also out of hot glue otherwise it would have been even more quick and dirty! ;D
As you can see, I wore the green and red necklace and did a nice little fall makeup. The ball was really nice, I arrived a little late due to the mini photo shoot with my boyfriend (thanks so much, honey!) and missed some of the acts. But I still saw three belly dance and tribal dance performances, a burlesque dancer and the band Violet Steam Experience. But the main fun was meeting Nachtkatze, Neisella, Niniel Chan and their boyfriends/husbands. We had a lot of fun dancing and chatting, even though the music was not fully my style... The location was also pretty nice with a real ball room with high ceiling and a chandelier!
BTW, I'm now in Hamburg for a couple of days which means scheduled posts and longer response times for comments. Sorry guys!
