Trompe L'Oeil Corset by shoomlah Trompe L'Oeil Corset by shoomlah
Hahaha, I never post anymore! Apologies. Work takes up most of my time, but I realized I still hadn't posted this so I'm putting it up here to tide people over.

Expand for all the construction details, as I'm faaar too lazy to recount them here. Cheers!

I LOVE the Myst games! I didn't know you'd done something based on them!

So what does the D'ni writing say? :3

It is some nonsense that I scribbled on there- it was late at night and I wanted to add some D'ni, so I just wrote the first few characters/numbers that came to mind. :P

Wow... That's all really-really awesome. I have no idea what Bathysphere is, but I'm a MYST fan.... My friend showed this to me and I went, "Fuwah~ Corset? What..? Oh! D'ni numerals!!! That's 12 and that's..... 305! Awesome!"

Anyhow. Both you and your friend look really cool, and the idea of being able to print your own silks sounds really cool, too. The mechanical damask pattern is very elegant.
All the colours are great, too.

I was running around with the gal in the crazy teal outfit with the outrageous hat. Depending on the day, I was in either a purple jacket outfit, or a leather apron and slacks outfit.

:excited: I see D'ni numerals, and name (I assume) From my studies it looks to be... 12 and 5... 19? It's been a while, I forget much past the numbers, and the fact that a numeral turned anti-clockwise is that multiplied by five.
"Shoo"? Well, considering your DA name, that makes sense, actually ;)
:giggle: Have I proven enough to show I know what I'm talking about? If so, then I have to say that this is awesome! My love of D'ni (and the games) combined with my love of corsets and my newfound love of steampunk!
This is just mind-blowingly awesome, and so masterfully put together! I do believe I am in love, and in awe :+favlove:

Thanks! And you're close- the number's 305 if you add it up correctly, and "shoo"- it was late, and a wanted it to say something, so I wrote random numerals and the first syllable of my D'ni name. Maker knows why. :) The little gauge on the side says Shoom'lah in it, as well. :D

I'll dress up as the Techno Viking! [link]

I'll buy a muscle suit! I've got a beard growing, I'll learn the moves and wear red/green socks too!

I haven't dressed up for Halloween since I was in 4rth grade >.< I was a vampire! Bluah!

What do you plan to go as (why am I saying this like I know you??) You are pretty hooked up on that department O.o, you said.
