INSPIRATION: Lwaxana Troi

Suppose it was inevitable, watching my favourite Trek whilst in full-on costuming obsession...

Known for her outlandish outfits, I never ever thought her style would appeal to me... Either I've gone completely wacked, or this is one awesome dress (see episode 4x22). I think it's the fit and vaguely Victorian-esque silhouette. Also, it is probably one of her more simple ensembles. Looks like Brown chocolate velour bodice and sleeves with luscious taffeta with a subtle paisley motif skirts and accents. The design of the skirt lends it a vaguely bustle-like/Victorian shape, and the belt is so turn of the century (with elaborate buckle)!

Will probably never have the capabilities (appropriate fabric) or time for this piece, but one can wish...
