Finally uploaded those batgirl photos! I'm actually going to be doing another shoot with the same photographer later this month, this time in a studio. Should be awesome!

Right now I'm working on a very large early 18th century project for school. I've finished the stays, so I'll post photos of them as soon as I can get some good ones.

Sorry for the hiatus; school got really busy last term. Should be more things going up as I finish them this winter and into the spring - I've got some exciting projects lined up!

SCA name: Lady Isabel Westrose (Barony of Ruantallan, Crown Principality of Tir Mara, East Kingdom)

I am a double-major costume studies/history student. I have been doing art since I can remember, and spent 4 years at a specialized art high school before deciding that conceptual art is not my future and heading off to do my bachelor of arts in costume studies and history. I love my program =D I am a Lady in the SCA, and for most of the year I hail from the Barony of Ruantallan in the Kingdom of the East - although I spend my summers in Ealdormere.

I do costume from a lot of different eras, including medieval (12thC and 14thC so far), Tudor, and Victorian. I'm starting to get into 18thC now, too, and I also love steampunk. So there will be a wide variety of stuff on here, as I get around to making things and posting them =)

I love mythology, and I do lots of art drawing from the myths of faerie circles and courts and such, as well as versions of Norse figures and scenes from the Arthurian cycles. I am inspired by people like Brian Froud and Alan Lee, and spend a lot of my time imagining strange new fey beings. I also draw the characters from the novel I've been writing for far too long. =)

I have also pursued wildlife photography since I was very young, and I would never go on a trip without a camera in hand. I will not be posting most of my stuff here, however, as I generally distrust the interwebs and am afraid that people would use it without permission. I work hard to get all my photos, and as much as I would like to share them, the internet is not a safe medium.

School is very busy, so updates will be fairly slow, but I'm hoping to put stuff up here as I finish it; both costume work and regular art.

Awww, thank you very much! <3 Medieval dresses are really easy to sew once you know how - the trick is doing the research to make sure they're accurate! Let me know if you have any questions about different styles throughout the medieval period. =) History students represent! Hehe.
