    I like drawing costumes. Unfortunately, I've never been able to make one of them.... :( I hope to be able in the future.

    Here are the more fantasy-like/fantasy-themed ones. All drawn on the same model(I should get a new one sometime.... If you can draw me a new one, please,please,please contact me).

    Wow, some of them look really cool! I'd also love to draw my own costumes, but I'm not very talented. You should really try and make one of those costumes!

    Nicely done. Some of the costumes would not be too difficult to make. The one at the bottom of the list would probably be simplest. If you need help, feel free to PM me. I'm a professional ;) Or at least I will be when I graduate, anyway. . .

    Ringquelle...those are beautiful! Many are the kind you would see in a very high quaility Video Game or Animated Movie...have you perhaps thought of finding a way to costume design for something like Disney or Dreamworks? There has to be a way to get into something like that. You have a great eye for color and detail...Keep up the good work!

    Wow, thx!

    Over here, the only way is to go to fashion academy. Unfortunately, it focuses on fashion, not costumes. And it's hard to get any work after finishing it.

    *hugs back* ^^ Thx!

    I'm gonna make one or more of these soon... not for myself yet, I'll start with barbie-dolls or something. When I can sew well I'll make some for myself.

    It is much harder to sew on a barbie doll scale than it is on a full scale, trust me. I would not start out that way.

    My mum won't allow me to start with anything big, lol. She says I gotta learn it on something small first (for barbie dolls or teddy bears). Perhaps I'll buy a somewhat larger modelling wooden doll (the ones you use for drawing too)

    I've been looking through my old hidding places on my computer and dusted off some of my drawings. It's rare that I sit down to draw a costume, but there are many of the dresses that I've drawn that I would love to be able to sew! Problem is just that they seldom are very realistic...

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v621/Wyrdling/My Art/windy.jpg
    - just a sketch, but this is probably the one of my creations with the biggest chance of becoming a reality...
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v621/Wyrdling/My Art/alightinthedark.jpg
    - I just have a thing for long dresses with looong sleeves ;o)
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v621/Wyrdling/My Art/elvenlady.jpg
    - ehm, not possible to sew at all, but it's cute...
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v621/Wyrdling/My Art/imsorry.jpg
    - don't mind the poem...
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v621/Wyrdling/My Art/braiding.jpg
    - I love those sleeves!
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v621/Wyrdling/My Art/nightdancingdetail.jpg
    - don't really know where the dress ends and the arms begin in this one...
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v621/Wyrdling/My Art/mistressjpg.jpg
    - very very old drawing.
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v621/Wyrdling/My Art/sketchbodyandghostdress.jpg
    - I especially like the colours on the dress. Oh, and if you can use the 'body' then just go ahead ;o)
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v621/Wyrdling/My Art/Euforia.jpg
    - and at last, a totally not realistic ever dress! But it had to be here...

    I think that was pretty much what I could find - that I've scanned anyway. I hope that I sooner or later pulls myself together to start sewing some of them...
