Doodle 179 - Interactive Friday Costumes (Part 1)

I missed playing along with you guys, so much fun!

OK first, I doodled something on my own, some stuff passed across my pinterest feed and I just had to try it out:

The King's Dead, Long Live The Queen - blue mechanical pencil on plain sketchbook. Aprox 10 mins.
Now for the requests!

MichelleH requested a Victorian-type ice skating steampunk fairy, here is what I doodled so far, mostly victorian though:

Ice Skating Victorian Fairy - blue mechanical pencil on plain sketchbook. Aprox 15 mins.
Next, Rachel Ndeto (Hi Rachel! Welcome!), asked for: "...maybe for inspiration you can use dress from the 1910's. I've always admired the long, elegant gowns"

1910's inspired gown - blue mechanical pencil on plain sketchbook. Aprox 15 mins.
 Marebabe asked for: "I would like to see you draw a shy and demure young lady from Jane Austen's era, complete with a bonnet. (They really knew bonnets back then!)"

Demure - blue mechanical pencil on plain sketchbook. Aprox 15 mins.

And finally for today, a very quick sketch inspired by rhonda's request: "i'm going to my first "con" in March and have no idea what to wear. Pictures i've seen are steampunk, victorian and my favorite (i think)- ren faire-ish types outfits. How about something that's feasible for a girl to wear that can be put together rather cheaply?"

Steanpunk Style - blue mechanical pencil on plain sketchbook. Aprox 10 mins
I actually used pieces of clothing I already own to do this, a military style jacket similar to this one from Torrid.com:
Available at Torrid.com

And the hip bag is one I also own and bought at Etsy on this store:


Some olive pants, or even jeans, accessories and a corset to wear under the jacket and you could have a comfortable ensemble for a con that isn't too expensive to put together.

Beautiful! I love the diagonal design on the 1910 one. Thank you! :)

And the con costume is a wonderful idea. Just need to find a good corset...

Thank you *so* very much for some great ideas. :o) i hadn't even considered pants....but it makes so much more sense!

All of the outfits are wonderful, that 1910's inspired dress is beautiful!

Wonderful post today! These drawings are all so beautiful, and it's a pleasure to sit and study them.
