About this Costume
Construction Details:
The main piece of this, the corset, was made by Pendragon costumes. I strongly recommend them.

The skirt was the bulk of the work, it's from Simplicity 1819. I really wanted a bustle, haha. I was back and forth in the fabric store (holding the corset and getting stares) between the cotton I ended up using and several other fabrics. I wish the fabric had more drape, but overall I like the utilitarian feel of it. I found the spacey-waciest lining fabric I could, it's hideously sparkly and hard to work with, but I feel it evokes the TARDIS interior.

Boots are from DSW, I wear them all the time.

The necklace was a lucky find at the Otakon artist alley. The ring is from Charming Charlie's, I made the hair clip from scraps of leather, brass chain and beads. Stockings...Target? Maybe? I don't recall!
Personal Thoughts:
I was encouraged to buy the beautiful corset from Pendragon Costumes, then had to figure out what to wear with it! I really like the character of Idris and decided to make a spin on the TARDIS inspired by her outfit and details from the corset. I love this little outfit!
