Belle Gown - 2015 by Durnesque
Belle Gown - 2015
I wanted to update my personal Belle gown, because I was not happy with the way the two fabrics photographed together. This is the original skirt and arm pieces with a new bodice and skirt swag in a mute yellow-gold satin. So happy with how it turned out! I'll be wearing this to DragonCon later this summer!

Or on my Tumblr.

Belle Selfie
So, I have wanted to cosplay this piece of fanart ever since I saw it for the first time... so tonight I did! :D

Yes, I switched the direction of my face because I have this smirk-thing going on only on one side of my face! :P I also went with more of a twitter-style than the original.

Wicked Stepsister Gowns Set

This was my big project recently... I had to figure out hoop/petticoat combos in order to give these dresses the right structure. The pink hoops didn’t come out quite right, but they serve their purpose, especially considering I was drafting from scratch. 

These gowns were made for Princesses with a Purpose and will be at the premiere of “Cinderella” tonight!

Super Save the Date by Durnesque
Super Save the Date
So, I'm getting married and since my fiance (Sean M Moreno aka thatseanguyblogs) and I have got a bit of notoriety on Tumblr as Superman and Wonder Woman, we decided to have a little fun with our Save the Date card.

I took this cover from Superman and Wonder Woman and did the base manipulation to add Sean and I's faces, switch out the sword for a lasso, and add the new text and barcode. Then Sean did some more detailed editing of our faces.

You can see the post on Tumblr here which includes the matching envelope and sticker my mom made to go with it. :)  

Summer in Review

Wed Sep 3, 2014, 6:13 PM
Dear Friends, Watchers, and Visitors;

Thank you all, as always, SO MUCH! Over the summer my page surpassed 50,000 views - which is rather overwhelming. I was, as expected, insanely busy this summer, so here's a run down of what projects came to fruition and which did not. 

:bulletblack: I worked through my commissions wait list (FINALLY!) and stacked up a new one for fall. 
:bulletblack: Went to a wedding and Disney 3 times!!! Once with my best friend and twice with my boyfriend and his family. 
:bulletblack: Started my Princess project: Princess tee shirts! You can see some completed in my gallery and the full plan here
:bulletblack: I made my own cosplays for the FIRST time and premiered them at the infamous DashCon as well as DragonCon. Cosplays completed were: Street Wonder Woman and Belle's Ballgown. 
:bulletblack: I also made cosplays for my boyfriend, Sean M Moreno: Gaston and Beauty's Prince/Prince Adam
:bulletblack: Made my own pirating garb for shenanigans with the aforementioned boyfriend  aka Captain Francis Drake 
:bulletblack: I wrote a Renaissance Festival show with my girlfriends and we signed a multi-year contract to perform at the Carolina Renaissance Festival! You can see our facebook page about "The Angels" here.

Just about the only thing I did not get around to on my summer itinerary was more hair tutorials... sadly I had way less time on my hands than expected. Maybe more will appear this fall. 

Here are some of the pieces I made this summer: 
Street/Casual Wonder Woman by Durnesque Gold Velvet Belle by Durnesque Prince Adam/Beast Costume by Durnesque Little Mermaid Ballgown by Durnesque Green and Gold Reversible Pirate Garb by Durnesque Belle's Rose-covered Ballgown by Durnesque

Awesome! Thank you so much! If you wouldn't mind using my deviantart tag for that, just to create a bit more consistency with linkage the code Durnesque will get it right to my deviantart page. :)

You have an amazing talent. In a world of computers you must love the hands on aspect to your art. Great stuff.
Durnesque Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2014  Student General Artist
Thank you very much! I do a fair amount of digital work too, though. Every photograph requires digital work to process, more than you might think, but I do love every aspect of what I do. :)
