Virgin's First Dance by LiL-KRN-YUNA Virgin's First Dance by LiL-KRN-YUNA
(Full View Please! <3)

Mm. Geisha/Origami-inspired paper dress :)
Another one of my pieces from the GHP art exhibition.
Everything is made out of paper or wood and all the pieces were hot-glued together.

This took me... approximately 5 days to make. It wasn't really the construction part that required the most time. Hand-folding all those papers... ugh! Took me ages!
About 10 lbs of paper from the drawing studio lol.

The hibisca flower arrangement was colored with soft pastels. The obi was detailed with dimensional fabric paint. The silver stars hanging off from the "arms" were made from tissue paper~ Also, I didn't have a mannequin so I had to build one out of wire and wood D:

Sad note. It got destroyed on the trip back home ;~; The main piece is sort of intact but all the detail pieces broke/ripped off... ;~; I was really upset about it but it was expected. I'm so glad that I took pictures of it! <3

Virgin's First Dance by ~LiL-KRN-YUNA. The suggester wrote, "I love how abstract this piece is. The title "Virgin's First Dance" fits this piece perfectly. When I first viewed this piece, I thought of a virgin Geisha dancing. I truely believe this is a stunning piece." ( Suggested by nightmaresky and Featured by Kitten-of-Woe )

Oh hello there! :D Sorry about the late reply!
I'm assuming you are a fellow GHP student (Visarts major)!?
Aww, I doubt that! I'm certain that your exhibition was just as great as ours!!!
& Thanks so much! ^^

You know how awesome this would've been to wear! But it's like: *move* "Ok did I rip anything? Good" *move* "Anything now? Ok" *move, riiiiiiiip* *whimper* "Now?" "Ummm, I think something ripped...." "(expletive)". lol. Sucks that it was destroyed. T-T

you are supremely talented! I've always been a fan of your costumes too. The shape and sculpture of this is amazing and really inspiring. Even if it did mean an unfortunate end, for such a fleeting beautiful thing, I'm glad I got to see photos! Good luck with all your art in the future!

I like how the red at the bottom looks the umbrella, so it appears upside down.
And how in the world did you figure out how to layer and fold it all like that? It looks like a folded bird wing...and ack, it's so good.

It's so pretty! This must have been so unbelievably painstaking to make, but the results are so worth it! It's so so beautiful, such a shame it got destroyed on the way home. It's so sad when your work ends up getting trashed. <(T O T)> As you said though, at least you got some great photos first!!!
