Design Work | Fairy of Mystic Light

I was asked to create a ball gown by a fresh graduate young lady for their upcoming grad ball.
the theme was masquerade, so I immediately thought of something mysterious. Client wanted the gown in light mint green color. I told myself, hey that could work! 
For others when you say mystery it's always dark and intimidating. I wanted to translate that mystery from a different point of view. When everything is dark and a bright luminous light shines from afar. It somewhat resembles a resolve.
A mystic light.
A sign of hope.

Design Work | 3014

I was commissioned by a group of students from UST to make their representatives' costumes for the university pageant. They are Computer Science students so they intended to project some futuristic feel on the outfits. They immediately wanted TRON inspired costumes which explains the color schemes and the general design. So we collaborated on the design aspect and play around the lines keeping the basic look.

note: yes this is heavily inspired by Tron because my client wants too XD
I dunno but I really liked the back more haha

individual photos after the cut 
The skirt is a personal touch to keep a whimsical vibe on femininity. 

The ring thingy is a personal request from the client. something that they can work with while on stage for more pose options. 

If you'll notice the blue strips. I intended them to have this illuminated feel by painting it in gradient style.

That's all. 
I hoped you liked this one coz I honestly worked hard on this. /o/
stay tuned for more of my works
