Deep Sea by The-MoonSquid Deep Sea by The-MoonSquid
This is my Ocean Fae costume design! I'm a huge fan of the whole fae deal, and the unseelie in particular. So I decided to create my unseelie alias, and it turned out like this!

The wig was sooo much fun to style; it has a ton of fake pearls and actual sea shells in it, not to mention a crap load of dreads after i dreaded and teased the crap out of the base. The tips of the hair are painted green 8) BUT, since this was my first time reeeaalllyy styling a wig, I had no idea what I was doing, so the wig ended up being a bit too small for me... I made it work though!

The actual dress is made out of a curtain I bought at a thrift store, and a pair of pajama pants that I ripped apart, also from a thrift store. The DESIGN of the dress was something that I had dreamed myself in a few months ago =)

Oh, fabulous. What a gorgeous representation of an Unseelie fae! And very creative in the making, too.

Thank you very much :) it's nice to see someone who knows the unseelie!

The year is, after all, divided into two parts, and one is certainly not Seelie! ;) And that, in my opinion, is just how it should be...

I love the outfit design of this. And I love the fact that someone else considers Unseelie the better Court. Just saying. Most people I know are all, "blah, Seelie ftw~", it's so mundane. And I think you displayed wonderfully the amount of fun you can have with this. Almost makes me want to design something of my own. Who knows if I'd ever get around to it, though...

Gosh thank you! Ahhh yeah unseelie represent! I see the merit in the seelie court, and I do respect it, but unseelie is where my heart belongs =)

You should design something! It's so much fun! ^_^

I have an interesting Hatter outfit planned, just need to figure out how to draw it out so I can actually make it...

You know, the light quality (& the makeup) in this shot instantly made me think of an old Elizabeth Taylor movie, like Cleopatra or something.
I love your dress!!! I think it would be so much fun to create something like this. :meow: Ah! and I love your forehead tat!

I didn't even think of that but now that you bring it to my attention, it does give off that old, classic and magical feeling! I really love it! You made me reappreciate this!

Oh thanks! In the dream that I had worn it in originally, it was so strange, but I think seeing it in real life, its awesome! Im so happy that you appreciate it all ^_^ It makes my hobby feel worth while!

Yes, I think the tattoo gives just the right touch that brings everything together. I really do. Like, it still would've been nice without it, but with it, it's so much more whole.

I'm so glad that my comment made it all worthwhile! I try to make constructive, original comments cause that's the kind I like to get. :meow: Happy I could help you reappreciate this wonderful photo
