During the Dawn contest, there were two hardworking and great photographers shooting each contestant on a backdrop backstage. Jesse grabbed these shots of me, thank you so much.
You can see more of the detail in the costume here, including the choker and arm bands dripping with chains. Everything was created by me, and it is an original design inspired and influenced by artwork of Dawn. I made the corset with a custom swooping bust line, and it is designed to make my chest look very full. I mean, it's Dawn afterall! Hello voluptuous Goddess!
So before those types of comments pop up... lol.
My entry was "Birth of the Goddess". I was awarded Third Place!

To abbreviate, I designed the costume based on Linsner's art style, and the theme. I wanted it to be white, to symbolize the purity of new birth. I made the costume from scratch and also the wings and a 6 1/2 foot egg prop that was rolled on stage and that I could kneel in.
