(Character Based)
Reference: [link]
Yeah I know.. the reference is tiny. Since I wanted to make a more human based interpretation with this, I felt that I reference image wasn't exactly 100% necessary.

I was refered to this contest by :icondedredhed:

This is based off of the mythological bird of fire/rebirth, Phoenix. I made this costume basically out of 2 bought patterns(corset and base skirt), I altered them as shown with hand sewn bead designs, ruffles, feathers(all feathers on the skirt were hand dyed), and sequins. The corset is fully boned with a busk, the beaded design took about 5 hours to complete. I made the wings from plastic canvas, clear nylon straps, and lots of feathers. The wig was cut, dyed, styled, detailed with strands of beads, and finished off with a feathery headdress(also handmade). The feathery bodice was constructed out of plastic canvas covered with feathers, and hand stung beads. I made feather tails to attach to my wrists, wig, and wings to complete the costume. The only thing that I did not make for this costume were the shoes.

This is my entry for the contest Think Pink III by JunkbyJen [link]

Digital mixed media category

This is a mix of a Poser render (character, hair, top, kasa, jewels, circle prop) and Photoshop with some photo manip for the bottom of the dress)

This is the first image in my gallery. I saw this contest announced in a friend's gallery to raise awereness for breast cancer and celebrate JunkbyJen's 7th anniversary, cancer free, this October. I jumped at the opportunity to finally post in my gallery here, as I am very close to this cause, having been through it myself just very recently. I wanted to do something special to raise awereness and also celebrate being a survivor myself, as I was lucky to have caught it early, still intact with two little scars :)

Inquisitor Ordo Hereticus from Warhammer 40 000

I nearly nighed out of my wits while carring this costume through half of Russia. Almost got denied the baording in plane in the Novosibirsk airport because they thought that was real weapon)))

We hope you like it!

Well, here is my entry for the contest. It is a mix of digital painting, photo manipulation, and 3d rendering. I used one stock image from :iconmjranum-stock: <this guy rocks. The rest was either photographed, painted or built by me.

My original intent was to create a cat/human hybrid, but she ended up looking kind of fox-like, and mouse-like in some ways.
In any even, I'm happy with the overall composition, I probably could have tweeked the shadows a bit more, but after 30+ hrs, I was afraid of overworking it.
