It’s another dip into our brand new feature along with another Her Universe dress. This time, we’re looking to Doctor Who and the Tenth Doctor for some style cues. (The key here is that when in doubt, add a little bit of TARDIS blue!)
This magical girl beatdown pastel nightmare goes out to my mahou shoujo squad. You know who you are.

Sometimes high fashion looks don’t even need a second glance before they scream a certain character at you. This couture gown by Ulyana Sergeenko from the recent Fall 2014 show definitely gives off the high fashion modern day Snow White vibe!
I still have yet to wear this costume to a con but at least I now have pictures of it! (There was a whole thing with needing a costume to take little cousins trick-or-treating a few years ago. Because obviously I had no other costumes.) A little over a month ago, a group of us trekked out (literally) to this gorgeous spot in a park in the area. It was a bit of a walk but was totally worth it!
I love Esmeralda in Hunchback of Notre Dame and it’s definitely fun getting to dress up as her. This costume was originally slowly assembled because I already had a lot of the pieces for it in my closet. All I had to make was the scarf and the corset. It just took a while to finally finish it and the motivation of the aforementioned Halloween event. I’m definitely really grateful to both Jeremy and Erin for the pictures in this post especially since I was pretty out of it and not on my a-game for the shoot.
The problem with using my belly dancing skirt for this costume is that it meant I spent about 75% of the time just playing with it and making it do lots of swirly things. Oops?
