I Am Not Your Juliette by RobynRose I Am Not Your Juliette by RobynRose
I just finished my surface design bodice tonight.
Resist treatment done in flour paste on cotton coduroy and discharged with powdered bleach.
Part of my costume that includes a full elizebethan skirt using the same technique.
I plan to add some sculpted bones to the bodice when I have time.

I'm showing my inner anime nerd here, but the title of the piece is actually in reference to the popular song: [link]
That and I'm a huge Shakespeare fan. But Juliette is definitely not my favourite character.

Please do not make any comments about my body.

This is not a stock image.

Thats pretty damn cool. Its classical and somewhat punk/gothic at the same time. It seems rather villainous?

Less Villainous, more, I guess, "black humour" maybe?

When I was doing acting in uni I kept getting forced into roles that focused upon looks. I was "the pretty girl". Which really is less of a role and more of a walking, talking stage prop. I've always felt the Juliette was never for me. The innocent ingenue lover who only exists for her man. So I made something to show that I am not. It's darker, yes, but I prefer characters that are strong and capable and experienced to ones that are helpless and innocent.

Yeah sometimes the main characters are real non-entities, right? Haha I think thats true on many levels, and not just in fiction. Strong characters are my favourite too, especially when they're anti heroes or misguided villains who manage to do good despite their inner conflicts and/or disdain for the community around them. Case in point, you mention that there is a dress component too but in my humble opinion I think the costume peaks with the tan trousers! Its more warrior/pirate-like. :XD:

Just curious, have you ever considered pursuing a professional modelling career?

RobynRose Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2013
I did look into it, but there are two things:

1) I'm too old, most models start at 14, not 24
2) I'm not standard size. Just like when clothes shopping, or sewing from a pattern, your body measurements must fit the pre-made clothing for runway. It's not necessarily about being as thin as humanly possible as it is about being a standard size. Most runway sizes are 2-4-6-8. By "not a standard size" I have something like a size 2 upper body and a size 6 lower body. You can't tell just by looking at me that I have wide hips, but the pants will always tell.

And like I said, it has nothing to do with being "too fat" because I know people will shake their fist at the fashion industry as to do with bone structure. People are built differently than clothes are made.

Gorgeous! This looks like something from Renaissance and contemporary in the same time!

And... I think that's beside the point, but just out of curiosity: are you with somewhat red hair now or it is just the ambient lighting?

I understand you not wanting them used as stock, but the facial expressions here are very intense.
Would you mind if I used you face as reference for a drawing. I totally understand if you say no. I'll find an alternate reference for now and only work from this if I have your express permission first. I figured It was at least worth asking.

Face reference for a drawing is fine, I just don't want people tracing my actual design or using the photo in photoshop work.

It's a shame that when you assembled the pieces that the ribs didn't line up, but it's just a small thing. It really shows off your abilities at sewing and design, plus great use of the shoulders for skulls. It's both very minimalist with just the right accents. Though you being the model doesn't hurt any!

Hi there. :) I have a question. I know you are super busy, and I don't know if this is asking for a miracle or if you would actually be able to do it, but would it be possible for you to make some stock images out of these costumes and other similar ones? I know how much research you put into these outfits, and they are so lovely. Would it be possible to see some medieval stock in the future? Thanks again for all you do!

.. regarding the "you are hot on this clothe" comment.. I'm going to assume (though I could be wrong) this person doesn't speak English as their first language, clicking on this person's profile comes up with an "unknown" location for what region of the world they live in... or they have a terrible grasp of grammar one of the two.. nothing wrong with English not being your first language but if you're reading this... when Kxhara says " Please do not make any comments about my body" , you can also assume she's saying " Please do not call me hot, cute, attractive, beautiful, et cetera".. if you don't believe me check out her earlier journal entries. Same goes for the " great clothes, beauty face" comment although that person lives in Mexico so I suppose they have the "can't read English very well" excuse going.. still ...

Kxhara good to see you back :) (though it's totally understandable why you needed to take a break that goes without saying ! ) .. amazing work on your costume as always , the craftsmanship on the bone type images on the shirt is stupendous ! :) .. looking forward to the sculpted bones thing you mentioned :) ..
