Costume: Madame du Pompadour

After adding grommets for lacing and improved panniers, 2014
A very fun costume, I made the skirt a little short by error but it came in very handy when running through the Gaslamp District on a Flynn Lives mission! I made proper panniers and replaced the zip in back with grommets so I can lace it really tight so it looks less baggy and also redid the skirt. Now to get pictures one day!
First time I wore it, back when it had a zip.
