Chris disappointed me. I loved his inspiration: an 18th Century portrait of the Marquise D'Argence by Nattier. What evolved out of that inspiration was, in my opinion, a mere riff on the avant-garde dress of his and Christian's collaboration. Chris used yards and yards of duchesse satin in pearl gray for the body of the floor-length gown and used a darker gray satin for a shoulder-piece-cum-collar. Then, he took a nap. I was annoyed. I was annoyed, because the shoulder piece was so derivative of the earlier dress and the gown wasn't taken far enough. And I was annoyed, because there was plenty of time remaining to fix either or both. No -- he was content. Sigh. Chris, I can't want you to succeed more than you do, and it was evident that I did.
That sounds so cool, I think I saw that episode. ^_^ I get distracted though just looking at the stuff LOL.
Off topic but oh well, you guys should do a Gothic Lolita challange, or Visual Kei, those are suprisingly challanging.
Gothic Lolita is all about doll like looks and an innocence and there are many subcategories to them. Check out Mana(he invented the style).
Visual Kei is all about mixing styles and colors and patterns but still making a uniform whole, and there's no such thing as gender in Visual Kei, the contestents would have to like, choose a randome male or female model out of a bag. ^_^
I totally agree with Cinward you guys should do a gothic Lolita challenge.
Ever since I was about 10 I've wanted one of those dresses so badly, but my parents don't have the money for one and I don't have the skill to make one.
The best I can do is to draw pictures of them. Most of them turn out pretty good.
