Klimt Costume-y Dress

























As I am compiling images together for my portfolio, I decided to include this dress I made for Halloween a few years ago. I was inspired by the painting by Klimt called "The Kiss". I made the dress out of a slightly shiny gold fabric and then, with the help of a friend, we painted on the dress to create a similar pattern to the dress in the painting. I had so much fun making this! Weee! Costumes are fun! --S

Where'd my comment go? Well, I'll try again.

Very cool dress! I can't believe you went through all that trouble for Halloween! Oh wait, yes I can. Nice job on the painting. Gustav would be very proud, indeed! --L
