Au Schwarz

Here are some progress pictures as well as the original concept that got me to the fashion show in the first place!  The twill tape, french terry and cotton rib used were all dyed to match and the leggings were given an ombre dip dye.  The leather tunic was reconstructed out of the reverse side of a thrift store jacket and contains around 100 grommets.  The direwolf appliques at each shoulder took around 3 hours per head ( 12 hours total) and had sections of the rib invisibly hand stitched to form the line work and embellished with studs.  You can’t see it in any of the photos, but the twill tape used to clean the inside of the zipper had Arya’s kill list running up and down it as a fun last min. detail.  The Valar Morghulis embroidery across the back is hand stitched in oxblood embroidery thread.

My outfit for the first Her Universe fashion show at Comicon 2014!  I chose Arya Stark for my inspiration and it was amazing meeting Maisie and Sophie after the show! Sorry for all the exclamation marks but I had a lot of fun and it was a super positive experience.

on set for Hello Hero’s live action trailer.  I was an assistant costumer on this project and was responsible for sewing cy-babe and titaniac’s costumes.  You can watch the full trailer over here

sorry about the dearth of updates lately- I’m working hard to get the webshop up and running, but it looks like that’ll be pushed back to the end of november.  

Doing some test shots with a shirt + jacket I made, the shirt will be on sale at the Argus Panoptes etsy which is coming soon! 

preview pic of what I’m working on right now.  Part of the concept is an antithesis to fast fashion, using recycled garments and craft techniques that are impractical to mass produce.
