I finished this one a bit ago, but no opportunity to photograph and upload!

For those of you who love Phantom of the Opera (and especially the ALW musical) as much as I, I would like to present a non-replica Star Princess tiara done Valt-style!!!

While the Hannibal tiara had a lot of pieces and the replica Star Princess tiara had a lot of construction issues, this one was done in a more traditional style (traditional to how I make them) and so it wasn’t all that difficult. It just had some extra ornamental pieces. So, if anyone wants one of their own, you know where to come! I might even consider selling this one. (Although I love it… bur I can’t keep them ALL. Make me sell it.)

You can talk to me here in my Ask Box, at GraveGlamour on Etsy, or you can email me at valtinen@gmail.com!

Also, don’t forget to follow since I will be hosting a giveaway for one of my crowns (and other fun items) once I hit 500 followers!

I need to brush up on my gothic lit a little more but it occurs to me that Raoul is written like a gothic heroine suffering from far too much sensibility while Christine is written more like a gothic hero.

YES YES YES. This is one of my favorite things…

Raoul Week QOTD

fdelopera:

« Raoul, lui, ne s’aperçut de rien, car, quand il avait Christine devant lui, rien ne l’intéressait de ce qui se passait derrière. »

Translation:

"Raoul himself perceived nothing, for when he had Christine in front of him, he had no interest in what was happening behind."

i.e. Raoul is too distracted by Christine’s lovely figure to notice Erik stalking behind them. ;)

Modern Day Wedding Gown, Take 2!
I love a lot of things about the US Wedding Gowns, but one of the features I’ve just completely honed in on was the ribbed ottoman they use for the bodice.

I’ve been thinking a lot about it ever since I got a swatch of it a few months ago and we all know I’ve been dying to try my hand at a different modern day Wedding Gown. I like to think that I had “soft” and “romantic” in mind when I designed the first one and something with more structured lines with a hint of bombshell when I designed this one. 
The gown features a pleated band on the neckline and hem, lace fans (I know this is an oddly specific detail that you can’t even see on the drawing, but I wanted pearls at the pointed edges of the fans, rather than rosettes), and the entire gown is made of the ottoman because I’m in love with how the material sits.
I will also say that a BIG inspiration for the mermaid tail skirt came from a conversation I had with veroniqueclaire a couple of months ago.
BUT here’s the best part, both dress designs could potentially be canon! If there is one thing I learned from watching Revenge, it’s that rich people have a ton of wedding gowns that they go through for wedding portraits and stuff and then one they actually get married in. (That’s also my way of expressing that I am not done with Modern Day Wedding!Christine. not by a longshot)
