Ladies, it's really fun and easy to start a costume around a corset! You'll have an excuse to add a wonderful accessory to your wardrobe, and you'll give yourself a wonderful foundation for costumes to come.
I'd like to recommend checking out Orchard Corsets - not only do they carry ALL SORTS of beautiful corsets and shapewear, but they are a proud partner of the The D20 Girls Project. Beautiful work and nerd support! (See what I did there? Corsets are support/shapewear. Word play) But, in all seriousness, please check them out!
♥ I have been granted an awesome opportunity to make a Halloween costume out of one of Orchard Corset's corsets! I will be blogging and recording my process of creating my design. So, you can get inspired, or you can play along at home! ♥
There are two other lovely D20 Girls involved in this project! I will share thier work as it comes in.
My design is called: "I'm Huge in Japan"
A corseted tribute to the movie monsters and city-destroying fun they bring. Nerdy, while still being easily recognized, this costume is a fun way to “destroy” the competition at your next costume contest or Halloween party. The costume consists of two parts: Monster/Godzilla/etc part and the city part. The top half is the monster, while the skirt and tights represents the city your (adorable) monster is rampaging through.
