Fashion – Gothic OK

The challenge for something completely different this week is fashion and they are still working with Gothic arches.  I started to thing about those church windows with their stained glass and the ladies who in days of yore might have looked up at the fashions on display. I have created a mediaeval OK magazine fashion makeover.  The two designs are from ‘English Costume’ 1952.  The ‘before’ shot is a pre-Roman woman of the people; wearing a simple gown of coarse material fur skin pinned on right shoulder.  The ‘after’ shot is a Lady of Quality’ c1130.  I copied the outlines onto acetate and then filled in with nail varnish; then stuck my painted Gothic arch over the top.
