Flickr photo contest - win a OOAK emiliacouture fashion!

I have just announced a flickr photo contest and wanted to remind you to participate. So if you haven't opened a flickr account yet now is a great time to start! The contest will close on 16th of March and I will announce the winners on 18th!

The idea is that you take a doll box, your favourite doll and build your dream giftset. Then post the photo in the new emiliacouture flickr group with "emiliacouture contest" written clearly in the title. The doll you use can be any size or brand. I will pick the winner who will receive the Ants outfit and will raffle another surprise price among all the contestants!

The Antz outfit consists of black net stockings, white sating corset and skirt smudged with black paint and stencil painted ants.
*The doll, gasmask and shoes are not included.

The Virgin Queen - emiliacouture commission for Sybarite

Here is the blog post of the year presenting my newest OOAK fashion "The Virgin Queen". If you are wondering what I've been upto until now I can reveal to you that I have been working on a wax prototype of my own 16" fashion BJD. I won't share photos of it yet, but if everything goes well I might have the first OOAK dolls out by the end of this year.

I love styling mix-and-match clothes and think you can never have enough of them. So, when I was asked to turn a period Reneissance gown into edgy fashion my first thought was to used all the wrong materials (leather and modern prints) to make it edgy, and the second though to take it apart. Instead of a one piece gown this outfit has separate neck and wrist ruffles made of fine lace, an overskirt and bolero of printed chiffon, a huge pleat petticoat, Elizabethan corset, panties and thigh high garter boots made of decoratively stitched leatherette. And as I wanted to give the outfit a kinky little twist, I sculpted a little padlock and turned the panties into a chastity belt. And I just had to name the outfit after my idol and inspiration: Elizabeth I.
