My robe a la Francaise at Halloween. I was on a cruise to the Caribbean over Halloween and I wanted to take something eye-catching. This was from my clockwork droid costume, but I didn't want to take the mask and gloves on the cruise. Instead I got this peacock feather fan thing (I think it's actually a really big Christmas Tree ornament) from Garden Ridge, and took my silver wire mask from my Blue Corseted Ballgown.
Instead I did some work on my off-time beading "Pearls" onto the flowers on the embroidery, the white trim going down the front openings of the dress and around the sleeves, and the hemline of the gown. There are about 3000 of them right now, I still have to do the back of the dress.
