A halloween costume, or perhaps cosplay, for Anna Valerious from the Van Helsing movie.
Corset has brass studs, fasteners, false buckles, grommeted back, and is made of black false leather. My pattern.
Jacket is red velour, with gold cording in the best design I could find from various pictures of Anna in the movie.
Blouse is white loose cotton single-weave fabric, with red thread embroidery (mix of machine and hand), and tassels are handmade.
Pants and boots were storebought.
