Dress forms and photo shoots

Journal Entry: Thu May 22, 2014, 5:38 AM
Often I thought I had to choose between the two. Or that I had to go for a model posing in front of a plain white/black background.
Over the years I realized that artsy photo shoots are way_too_much_fun. So, I decided to do the practical, clear photos at home, on a dress form and further only do fun and artsy photo shoots!
In this journal I will show a compilation of things I have made in the past few years, left dress form, right photo shoot!

In the future I'll keep on doing things this way: A clear dress form picture to show the item as it is and further I'm going to participate in artsy shoots, where there is room for the whole team for creative input ^^

I'm going to get married within 9 days, but after my honeymoon, I'll be 100 % creating and shooting again :-)
I will also show pictures of my wedding, as I'm making the dress myself ^^

Best to everyone!

Just finished for my Maeror mini collection :) In black lace, decorated with broad black lace and trim, closure with silver tone metal clasps.

Question: What is the English term for such a piece of clothing? It's to wrap over your clothing, open at the front like a wrap dress... or mantle...or ? How would you call it? Any input is appreciated!

Hello! I've been following your work for some time on etsy, and only now have I just happened upon your work on dA as well! 

I must admit, I am hopelessly in love with all of your work, and I wish I knew how to sew as you do! I also wish I had enough money to commission your talents! XD 

In any case, I am so incredibly inspired by you, and I am beyond happy that I found you on deviantArt as well as etsy. 

Keep up the breathtaking work, and have a lovely evening :)
