finally done with this Ringmaster coat.. the first piece for the Vespertine troupe..
it’s a reconstruction of an antique military coat.. kind of challenging to work with
(very thick!) but I’m happy with the way it turned out.
I used a lot of reclaimed vintage coat remnants, pockets, ties, net, lace, velvet, tweed, etc.
as for the regalia parts, there are little silkscreened antique stamps
(custom made by Ogo Eion), old clothes tags,
the inside of a pocket watch, a bit of belt, and other found treasures.
now it’s full speed on the leotards, for me..
