1920s photoshoot

It seems that the only costuming stuff I do these days are photoshoots...
I had another day out with, and this time I took my 20s dresses and cocoon coat out for a spin. I also had a chance to wear the über-oriental tiara again.

I made both the dresses out of vintage saris and I'm fairly pleased with them. The patterns are my own, and especially the buttercream and black one I pretty much draped on the dress form and went from there.

I don't really have any proper twenties foundation garments, and in retrospect something busom-flattening would have been good. Ah well, next time.

I was happy with my hairdo for once; I changed my hair care routine in the beginning of this year, with the goal of embracing my natural curls and I really love it so far. For this 20s do I refreshed my curls, set my hair in pin curls with my curling cream and slept on it. In the morning I took the curls down and managed to produce a fairly decent, pseudo-marcel waved look. Win :)

For the coat I used the Folkwear Poiret Cocoon Coat  pattern and I'm happy with that too.

This way to the photos (which turned out too too divine).

No corset, I'm gonna lounge!

I kept feeling like a sphinx or something, wearing that crown, so we tried our hand in some 1920s surrealism. I have no idea what's going on here.

  5. Hello, my name is (Brigitte Junga) I want to testify how I got cured of the (Herpes) Virus. A few months back I had some symptoms. I went to see a doctor and many blood tests were done on me, later on, I was told I had (Herpes). My doctor told me that there's no cure for (Herpes) I felt bad, so I went online searching for a possible cure for (Herpes Virus), I saw a post by Dr. Olta a herbal doctor that's helping people get cured of (HIV)-(HEPATITIS-B)-(CANCER) e.t.c. I contacted him and told him how I was feeling he said his herbal medicine could cure me. He sent me the medicine via Courier Service and I received the medicine some days after he sent it, I took the medicine as prescribed by him. Before the completion of the medication, the symptoms stopped. I went to the doctor and carried out another blood test, surprisingly I was Negative. I haven't had any symptoms anymore. Dr.Olta is great. You can contact him at this Email ( / WhatsApp: +2348023063326)...
