DNMT August - Primrose Moth by sunshishi DNMT August - Primrose Moth by sunshishi
This is my submission for :icondesignersnexus: monthly theme. We were supposed to do an Insect-O-Gram, choosing one insect and "turn" it into an Haute Couture look.
As soon as I read the challenge I wanted to choose a moth... and after finishing my drawing I read about the "no butterfly" restriction :stupidme:
But since I'm very close to deadline already I'm submitting this one now and leave it up the the judges if I can participate in this month´ challenge...

Anyways, here are the three things we had to include in our comment:
:bulletred: name of insect:
Evening Primrose Moth [link]

:bulletred: reason for choosing:
As I said above I wanted to do a moth - because of their cute little fur coat. I've seen plain white or plain black ones in museums before. And while I was searching the net I stumbled upon this pink beauty with the white fur coat :aww:

:bulletred: description of design:
I did a floor lenght evening gown - and wanted to show this to you as well as the coat. So I did the second drawing without the coat. There you can see a neckholder dress. The white part around the neck is organza.
The white at the bottom is something feathery/furry as well as the second line on the dress.
She as a high slit at the front which she can wear with white 3/4 leggings underneath - or nothing at all :D
The little bolero coat is made of fake fur with a light pink bow.
I added black (and white) shoes to loosen up the color scheme - and matching it with her hair color.


Enjoy^^

Absolutely gorgeous, I love the little details on the hair and coat that look like moth's antennae.

Oh, and I was thinking really hard what kind of hair she should have... Finally I decided on a open look with a few strands :D
The antennae where always supposed to be the strands from the coat.

Thank you :bow:
I didn't want to make it into a costume, so I tried really hard to turn it into a fashion look... wich means I didn't copy the whole look of the moth but chose just a few aspects.
And thanks again^^

ah, I know that "feeling", I did a design inspired by a pokemon, and it was the same «no costume!»
you did a good job with the selection ;)

Ja, ich hätt auch nicht gedacht, dass ich bei meiner Suche auf so eine Farbe stoßen wüde. Letzendlich habe ich bei der Bildersuche auf Google einfach nur "moth" eingegeben und die verschiedenen Farbkästchen durchgeklickt :D
Freut mich, wenn es dir gefällt^^
