CuriousCouture Finally Updated!

Well, I finally got off my butt and finished the edits from the last photoshoot with the fabulous MollyHeartbreaker.

Pictures by Alisa Lemberg
You can see the entire shoot at CuriousCouture.com.

The corset and matching pencil skirt were made out of red pinstriped suiting material. Fake flap pockets adorn the corset. I topstitched red thread on the collar and cuffs that I ripped out of a purchased shirt. The hat was also purchased and dyed to get the red pin stripes.

The corset gives Molly a 6" reduction down to 19" fully closed. She is wearing it at 21" for the shoot.

...and yes that is a real .22 and machine gun bandoleer. There was this guy at the photo studio shooting on another set that came up to us and asked us if we needed guns, real guns :) He had a militia worth in his locker!

Was she one of the models in the fashion show?

Yes, she wore both that corset and some of the latex stuff for the other designer.

I can do straps, it's just that no one has needed them/wanted them. everything is totally custom.

LD fittings are a pain in the ass since I have to trust the people when they go "it fits great" which is bullshit since I usually make dozens of alterations on my in person fittings. If I ever do a LD fitting I'm going to have to require a web cam and a second person on the phone with a sharpie marker following my directions :)

nicely done!!

I didn't wear my corset last night to the banquet, but next year (the year I graduate, when the banquet is celebrating me and my class...) I definitely want to. You know, go out with a bang... might have to talk about the best way to do that... and since you're so full of great ideas... hmmm!
