USA Entry 58.) Dress: "Avatar" Neytiri's Bustle Gown
Best Alternate Steampunk Neo Victorian or Gothic Bustle Dress
Best Other Freestyle Bustle Dress
Seamstress: JM
Photographer: JM
Website: www.theperfecttouchvictorian.com

"Avatar - Neytiri's Gown" - James Cameron's movie "Avatar" is set on the moon Pandora in 2154 where the Na'vi race live in harmony with their unspoiled world. Neytiri is a central character who is as brave and accomplished as she is beautiful. What type of bustle dress would Neytiri want if she lived in the 19th century instead of the 22nd? I believe it would be elegant, colorful, and natural, and so this is my interpretation of Neytiri's bustle dress. The style is Natural Form Era with fantail skirt, split pannier overskirt, and bodice made from blue/brown zebra stripe faux satin. The bustled corselet is of amethyst velvet lined with the satin. The velvet repeats on the collar and cuffs for more color. Although Neytiri has the heart of a hunter, she is decidedly feminine and so I've added a sepia-tone insertion lace with velvet ribbon along the edges of the corselet and overskirt, another touch of lace at collar and cuffs, and a multi-layer plum/purple eyelash fringe along the skirt's edge. Not a day dress to wear while riding your pet banchee but perfect to receive all your special visitors in style!..." JM

Day Bustle Gown Costume

USA Entry 57.) Dress: Late 1870'S Jeckyl and Hyde Walking Dress
Category: Best Victorian Day Gown
Best Alternate Steampunk Neo Victorian or Gothic Bustle Dress
Dressmaker: DI

"This gown from the late 1870's was designed for a production of JECKYL and HYDE. It includes velvet and silk insets and black velvet trim. The black jetting was originally designed and then the beadwork was completed in India. Hours of handwork and pleating complete the garment. It includes a small velvet hat adorned with plumes. This would be worn to an autumn or winter event with an added cape and parasol..." DI

Gothic Victorian Costume

USA Entry 56.) Dress: 1874 "Lost Souls" Gothic Gown
Category: Best Victorian Day Gown
Best Alternate Steampunk Neo Victorian or Gothic Bustle Dress
Seamstress: Madame Kat

"This dress is called Lost Souls because it sucks up all the light and is so hard to photograph! LOL! Anyway, the Lost Souls dress is based off of a Harper's Bazar fashion plate from 1874 and is made from plain and embroidered taffeta, satin bias tape, double chiffon and satin pleated ruffles, and MILES of hand done pleats. A true labor of love for this Victorian Goth!! Patterns are modified Truly Victorian patterns..." Madame Kat

Gothic Victorian Costume

USA Entry 49.) Dress: Crawford Manor Day Gown
Category: Best Victorian Day Gown
Best Alternate Steampunk Neo Victorian or Gothic Bustle Dress
Seamstress and Model: Madame Kat

"I named the "Crawford Manor" gown as I based it off of a doll's dress I saw on a site of the same name. This late bustle dress is made from cream with purple ticking cotton, purple linen, cream and purple toile, lace, and self-fabric covered buttons. All based on modified Truly Victorian patterns of the late bustle era. I made the hat from my own pattern and covered it in linen, faux leather, grosgrain ribbon, and millinery veiling. I wore this to the Steampunk World's Fair back in May. I'm wearing it with an antique "dickie" I bought on Ebay..." Madame Kat

Photographer: Chris Pagel
