Wedding costumes by Laerad Wedding costumes by Laerad
I made my dress with 2 saris : 1 green silk blend sari for the underdress (chemise) and 1 red pure silk sari, embroided with tiny glass beads and gold and silver metallic thread. My inspiration is quite slavic/russian with a hint of middle eastern (and Catherine's outfit from Riven). Details : cloak [link] - dress border [link] - shoes [link]

My handsome husband is wearing a red linen undershirt, embroided by yours truly (but not seen on this picture). The tunic is olive green coton velvet & wool tweed (sleeves and lower part). The red parts are dupiony silk on which I sewed about 30 yards of ochre colored braid, in some sort of celtic pattern. The cut is mostly rus/viking with a more mongolian type of closure at the neckline (but the rus did something quite similar). The breeches are made of ochre linen blend fabric. The hat is made with boiled wool and recycled fur. See here for a detail of the tunic : [link]

The amazing earrings I am wearing are made by SoMK (see my favorites) as well as our wedding bands, and the quality of her work make me speechless. She is a goddess. Visit her page ! [link]

Ah ben, je croyais avoir commenté lorsque j'avais 'favé' cette photo. Mais je m'en souvenais. Mon souvenir ne rendait aucunement justice à la réalité toutefois: quel travail! Ce n'est pas du tout difficile d'imaginer que tu préfère faire tes broderies rapidement, surtout si on considère le détail investi dans les deux vêtements! Capuche! ;P
