This is my entry for an etailpr (see the side banner/widget on my blog) competition sponsored by Little Mistress – a purveyor of gorgeous clothing particularly dresses.

Good luck girls, we know this is a fabulous one!
I’m a sci-fi/fantasy fan (so that includes a lot of YA fiction as well) and like the idea of visual kei, conventions and theme/costume parties – so when I saw this dress from Little Mistress I automatically thought Starship Trooper but then altered it to my own preferences with the fantasy theme making it work for an older fashioned warrioress rather than techie soldier.
The Dress can be found HERE – gorgeous sequin embellishment in a very feminine pattern
The headdress is HERE
The Wings are from the same shop HERE
The mask is HERE
The shield is HERE
The coat which I’ve been eyeing for years is HERE
The bone/skeletal hand jewellery is HERE
The skeletal/bone finger claw/ring which mum and I actually both have and bought ages ago from the famous Camden Market is HERE
I’m a super fan of shiny lurex tights so the next best thing for a sequin metallic dress like this – chainmail boots! Ha ha ha! With suspenders to hold them up – substitute tights and footwear all in one. Can you say ‘love’? I can. HERE
Please bear in mind that I’ve used this for artistic affect and to complete the armour looking outfit however a sword is not a toy or a pretty accessory. No matter how beautiful or ceremonial the look it doesn’t takeaway from the intended purpose and nature of the tool/weapon. The character in the scene is a warrioress and so it fitted in with her appearance, however in actuality if going to a convention/party a costume one would be better 😉
So that’s my outfit, whether for a costume ball or end of the world, I’m ready 😉
