Devil or Angel... I can't make up my mind

Fargo, North Dak...






Dress I made to do a photoshoot with my sisters, working on two identical dresses in white and red, for devil, angel, and in between. I’ve already made 3 sets of wings and a halo. (and I’ve got stockings, necklaces, and boots to match them too!)
Self-drafted, made with lovely slinky jersey from the bargain bin. It would be great for going out too, (minus the wings, of course) although I haven’t worn it as such yet.
Wings were made with wire from the automotive section of the hardware store-all the craft wires were way too flimsy-, felt, and a ton of feathers. They’re constructed so that they slip into the back of the dress and don’t have to go around your arms, I’ll see if I can find a back shot but I don’t think I have one.

    I love this dress! I think it will be just as stunning in white and red too. And I like the idea of wings and those funky boots for the photoshoot too!

    The design of the dress is really lovely. I love the shoulders. I’m sure it will look AMAZING in red!! Love it as is too.

      thanks! i have no idea when i’m going to get a chance to do the others, i have way too many projects lined up. But the red one will eventually be mine, so i can’t wait to get it finished.
