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.
