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.
Quick hand sketch of my Rococopunk Costume.
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.
