Dark Knits Boutique is a small, independent corset maker/company out of Edmonton, Alberta. All the corsets are lovingly made by one very talented lady, who learned the trade from her grandmother. I was so very excited when she asked me if I would like to be in her upcoming fashion show. Without hesitation I told her I would love to!
My creature was the lizard, which was based off of the Argentine Tegu, which is black and white; when born, it has an emerald strip from its snout down its chest, which eventually fades away to black.
The corset I was wearing was snakeskin pvc, paired with a snakeskin pvc collar, and white skirt. My hair was in a beautiful braid, done by Bettie Buxom. And my fantasy makeup by Corrinne of Vampire Nomad. Its always amazing to under go this sort of transformation, where when you look in the mirror, you no longer recognize yourself
All of the makeup, hair, and corsets were just magical! There was everything from a unicorn (above) to a lion and a snake to a raven and everything in between. The corsets were all flawless and beautiful. All the guys and gals rocked their creature with confidence and pride knowing how much hard work went in to everything.
And here are some of the other babes who modeled in some amazing corsets ( and hair and makeup)
