So here's the little tutorial I made for the contest.
And I won! Woot! Totally makes the time spent on multiple takes, and the blisters my fingers endured from those takes, totally worth it!
My prize: $100 credit toward a custom corset of my choosing! :D Would've completely covered a cincher, but I've been drooling over the Suzi style for a long while now. It's an adorable, 50's/rockability style corset dress. And oh yeah, it's reversible too!
Got my shiny new corset dress ordered & new measurements taken over the weekend while at Naka Kon. Should be here in a month or so. *happy dance*
Now I'm curious, any interest out there for a video tutorial on how to straight lace? Good for those corsets that are a smidge too loose.
