Some of you were wondering how I come up with my ideas. So I want to tell you, how YOU can design your own outfit (step by step)
I always start with the breast part. (breast armour plate) And building things up. Then I decide which kind of dress would suit it the most. A short, flowy dress? A sexy side dress? (long gloves will look amazing with it) I'm always imaging the character that would wear it. Is it a mysterious woman? (sleek, long) Or a cute teenager? (Short, flowy) When the dress is long, I make short shoes. So you have the focus on the dress. For short dresses I choose long shoes or heels with stockings. My designs change a lot. In the end it doesn't look like in the beginning at all! XD Then I'm already deciding which colours it should get. From this point I can decide if I want more details in this colour. When I have the shape done from the dress, it looks a little bit "naked" to me. I often only do 1 shoulder plate to hide the skin at the shoulder. The shoes are my last step. They are always heels or boots. I only go for boots when the character has a short skirt or even pants. I like to choose gold for every outfit. Silver only with cold colours, but that is a personal choice
