Regency Zombie Slayer
This costume was among my first. It's based on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
The costume consists of the white overdress and a black underdress, both made of light linen. I based my design on Simplicity 4055, and just lengthened a BurdaStyle pattern that looked passable. Not period at all. It's not exactly empire-waisted either. There is so much I want to change. I might do a remake sometime in the future.
It was fun to wear though. Worn at Desucon 2010.
Out and about in Oslo, there was a man who ran after me. The poor guy was genuinely distressed by the blood running down my face and wanted to know whether to call me an ambulance.
