I create costumes based on The Venture Bros Dr Girlfriend and other clothing items, be they from patterns or of my own design. I am no longer making costumes to order but hope to have some new creations up soon!

Dr Mrs The Monarch
Now that the costume is complete, I'll post on Dr Mrs The Monarch. The leotard was easy enough to find (thanks Amazon) but next time I'll get a long-sleeved one and cut the sleeves off at the elbow...I realised afterward that she doesn't wear a cap-sleeved outfit, but the gloves cover some of the black material on the leotard. Oops, forgot the gloves in this photo...but I have them. Cutting out the Monarch symbol wasn't too bad but the hardest part was putting the trim on the neckline and reverse neckline. I kind of screwed up on that one, and this costume needs another go before it's perfect. The collar was just recycled from my Queen Etherea outfit and the wings are strips of gossamer tulle (I think that's what it's called). The crown isn't perfect either but it was a first attempt, and I need a more perfect wig. Still, I've had a compliment on it on Cosplay.com so that's a start...I just can't wait to wear the boots!
