Odessa the Sea Witch design by Lillyxandra Odessa the Sea Witch design by Lillyxandra
This sketch is was my original concept for the gown. But the more I thought about it the more I wanted puffy sleeves. I'm such a sucker for them! I think they kind of look like jellyfish. I sewed several faux pearls though out the sleeves and under breast panel, I wanted them to look like they were bubbling up and were caught on the outfit.

I made the necklace with gems and filigree from my favorite shop in the fabric district called "Bohemian Crystal". It defiantly has a magic pendent feel to it...what good is a witch with out her magic jewelery?

The inspiration for the headfins came from anime version mermaids. You see the headfins in a lot of manga and anime. I have always thought is was such a elegant detail.

I though the back of the costume should have some extra detail. I made a petticoat that has a multilayered train. The fabric was cut to resemble fish scales.
