Here is the third of a series of photos taken in the spring~
(Preview pic technically being the first.)

We went to several locations for this shoot including a garden as well as a water garden~ In this shot we found a cute little pond with rock formations in the water. It just so happen a single, cute, little lily pad flower was in bloom~

Enjoy~:heart:


:bulletpink: A Little About The Costume :bulletpink:
This costume was definitely a challenge to make and the detail of the design ultimately captured me. For the jewelry, many pieces had to be imported (some from India) and all of them were entirely made by my hand. Just the jewelry alone for this outfit took me 2 1/2 months to make. I made all the facets myself and spent hours just working on the chain links and arrangement. The jewelry consists of glass beads, metal, and even clam shell pieces. The most difficult part of this outfit wasn't the jewelry, it was actually finding the right colors for the outfit. They're so unique and uncommon, that it took me months to find each color. I had to be careful and carry swatches with me everywhere, because one slight shade off and it would throw off the entire outfit. Obviously there's no patterns out there for this outfit, so I had to draft up all of it. All the line work in the outfit itself is hand-sewn. I was hand-sewing 5+ hours at a time when doing the detailing for the outfit.

:star: Special Thanks :star:

:bulletpink: A big thank you to :iconceeceeluvins: and :iconfrozenlilacs: for creating such a wonderful character~ You girls are amazing~:heart:

:bulletpink: Thank you as always to :iconapertureashley: for sharing her time, talent, and photography with me~ Thank you so much for being a part of the memory~ :heart:

^^ Lol~!
Funny how I do have two elves in mind I want to cosplay one day.
I already have Link (No pics up yet though) and I want to make my own version of Legolas from Lord of
the Rings~

And yes~ Linneus of course is my favorite character.
I sympathize with him a lot.
