Hi! I'm Ginny McQueen and this is my website.

I'm a cosplayer (someone who dresses up as characters from anime, video games, sci-fi, etc.) and all-around geek. Here you'll find my costumes, modeling, travel blogs, and links to various shenanigans on the web.

Add me on your networking site of choice, and keep up with my (very nerdy) life! <3

So, I ended up only having 2 1/2 weeks to make this dress. Including the pocket hoops, stays, and other such under-garments that go along with wearing a dress like this. And also jewelery. I don't want to tell you how much all of the fabric and trim cost, because saying it out loud (or typing it) will make it too real. I never made a historical dress like this, and I was surprised it wasn't as hard as you may think. My real challenge was finding a happy medium between what the dress looks like in real life compared to the coloring on-screen. I'm happy with it, so that's all that matters to me!


EDIT - FOR SALE!



On sale for $750 obo (worth over $1,300), shipping included. First person who claims it and paypals me will get it.


This dress was made to fit someone who is a small, with a height between 5’ and 5’5” (if you aren’t wearing heels). Bust should fit up to 35”, waist should fit up to 25” (there is a little room to let it out).


Please share so it can go to a good home!!
