I wanted to do a steampunk version of Dark Phoenix from X-Men, and this is what I came up with! I did a corset with a stylized applique of her phoenix symbol. Then I made a bustled skirt with a chiffon train, striped stockings, arm warmers, boot leg warmer thingies - very technical terms here, and a huge collar to top it off. I really love this wig too. I wish I could always have my hair this color (except for at SCA events - since this is obviously not a period looking hair color ;p).
The photos were taken by Fremen Photography at Pacific Media Expo.
