I can't resist when presented with the opportunity to design a fancy dress...it's one of my weaknesses. So, had to put something together for AC's contest.
Basic colors are cool gray, dark blue, a medium blue, and a lighter blue, with black and silver embroidery.
-Light linen under dress in cool gray
-Over-dress in heavier blue fabric. The darkest blue embroidered with silver thread, because I'm a nerd that way.
-The sleeves are detachable and something like a mutated shawl. Totally not very functional, but I think it looks nifty.
-for the jewelry, I was in the mind of silver with dark blue tear-drop shaped star-sapphires.
Anywho, it's rather roughly put together, but I put far more effort into the overall design than the display of it. And if I didn't get it done now, I knew I wouldn't get it done. I'm bad that way.
