Burlesque Hafla Costume by JenniferWeiler Burlesque Hafla Costume by JenniferWeiler
The skirt is made in several layers with eight panels in the back and one long one in the front. Each panel is adorned with beaded trim or woven, gimp trim. The front belt piece is made with three different skulls and they are embellished with gemstones, chain, a vintage button, and metal finding. It can be removed as it is epoxied to two hair barrettes that you simply pop on and off as wished. The sides of the waist is three metal loops giving it the burlesque slit. Underneath the black chiffon panels is a teal layer for a beautiful look while twirling! The top is black chiffon over a dark teal chiffon. It's sewn around a small, gold hoop in the front and six chains hold it up and connect to a larger hoop in the back. The arm pieces are layers of black, teal, black/light blue laces. Beaded trims adorn both of them and beautiful, dyed feathers along the top. These are on elastic bands.

Work this costume has inspired:

This piece is SOLD.

Thanks for viewing! <3

Thank you!! I have some really crappy ones that were taken late at night with no preparation here: [link]

Haha I need to get some better ones sometime as my sister and I were goofing off when we took these. XD Hope that gives you at least some idea lol!

Thank you for your trouble! These are lovely. The dress shows a lot more skin than I'd imagined, but it's lovely all the same.

Would you mind if I used this as inspiration for a drawing? I'd credit you, of course.

Haha yeah costumes for dances like this get really hot and the ram horns especially so it's nice to have a breathable costume. But I actually wear a thin, black skirt beneath this one when I'm dancing though as I'm a bit conservative with my outfits when I'm dancing. XDD

Absolutely! Yeah, credit is fine and I would love to see it when you finish it if you wouldn't mind sending along a link to me to see as well! ^~^ <3

Lovely! I'm not certain when I'll finish it, since it's a half formed idea at best and I'm really busy at university right now. I the kind of person who piles up project ideas and then never gets round to actually doing them!

But I'll notify you if anything ever comes of it.

Ahhhh that would be AWESOME to do!! My boyfriend loves doing amtgard! So cool to run into someone else that enjoys it! The horns actually are from this shop on Ebay: [link]
I bought the horns from separate lots so I spent a lot of time matching up lengths and overall shape. x-x
