Narnian_Dreamer, you might PM one of the Mods—they're extremely nice and so helpful!! :D Don't worry, I'm new to the Forum thing too! ;) The Mods helped me when I first started!

Can't wait to see your work! So far it's just been me...and I've been meaning to add another dress I just did. :)

Dreamer (is it ok if I call ya that? ;) ), I love it! Great concept! :) Don't worry I ignored the face. I draw terrible faces too. Yickty-yick (that's a comment about my faces, not yours! :) ). They're so terribly hard! Back to the dress (LOL), I think it'd be really pretty if it was a dark, marronish red with very pale gold sleeves and under-dress (the bit that sticks up above the bodice) with the cloak being a beatuiful, dark, vibrant forest/emerald green. Of course a real elegant bit of needlework in pale golden threads would make it amazing. :) I can really see Jill wearing something like this

(as usual ignore the face. :) )

Dreamer: That's Beautiful! I would LOVE a dress like that :) Especially in the colors described by Awel. :)

Awel: Oooooh, the design looks somewhat Elvish :) It's SO pretty.

Awel, the way the sleeve sort of wraps around at the top really caught my eye. Beautiful! :ymapplause: :ymapplause: And I like how the underdress is cut higher at the neck. :) BTW, did you make your sig/avi set? It's stunning!

Narnian_Dreamer, don't worry about the face! I'm so bad I often just leave them blank! :D The dress is good; sweet, but different from the usual Narnian styles to reflect it's origin. Good job with the ruffled neckline!

I have a sketch or two around here somewhere that I need to scan in to share. We'll have to see about that...

I really like your design, Group Hug, I think it really gives her an almost evil like appearance.

Oooh, that's VERY cool Group Hug! :D I like the colors, how instead of a poison green, neon or something, they're a mottled color. I also like the bottom of the skirt, VERY cool ;)

Dreamer, thanks. I usually try to make my costumes at least elegant if not elvish. :)

Violetfirekrazed, thanks. :)

Adeona, yes I try to always give each element of the dress a WOW factor. I hate plain skirts so I either put lots of needlework or do crazy splits with underskirts and always lots of layers. Sleeves and bodices get the same treatmeant. Yep, I made my siggie/avatar set. It's suppose to be a character from my sci-fi book.

And I'd love to see your sketches! :D

Group Hug, very interesting concept. The skirt look is pretty neat! :) Just about the color I was thinking of for tLotGK

~Awel P.

p.s. sorry for being absent---so terribly busy with other things. :)

How do you post a picture? Every time I try it wont load.

What kind of file does a picture need to be to upload it?
