For the annual Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball 2013, I ,along with a group of very talented and creative friends, decided to create a Rococopunk-inspired costume. Merging the ornate aesthetic of Rococo style with 80's punk, the results were over the top, fun, and extravagant.
For my costume, I wanted play up the very bright, girly, and ornate aspects of Rococo style to contrast starkly with the punk elements. The top is a blue brocade corset with gold pyramid studs and oversized gold safety pin closures and frayed plaid trim along the edges. The skirt is comprised of three layers: a blue and black polka dot panier, a burgundy and black plaid underskirt, and bright iridescent salmon overlayer. The overlayer is trimmed in gold and black lace and gathered with floral cameo buttons all over. For my necklace, I designed a cake cameo, which was created out of tooled leather and mounted on a gold metal backing. The tooled leather collar was painted to match my corset and set with gold spikes. Layered stockings, skull platforms by Iron Fist, and makeup/hair by Chrissy Lynn completed the look.
