Gardenia dress by celesse Gardenia dress by celesse
I've been messing with a design for a dress based on gardenias, my favorite flower. I was sketching ideas the other night and Satou said it seemed like a wedding dress, so I angled towards that. I pretty much just CG'ed this for fun, hence the over-use of sparkles, shinies, and glowing stuff. XD

Yes, the headdress was inspired by Arwen's in the third LotR movie. It's supposed to look elvish. I originally designed it for a larger image that I'm (still) working on, but I felt like drawing it again and she needed something to decorate her head.

Done in completely in Painter.

...Why do I bother saying all this? Half the people that see this aren't going to read it.

(Yeah, another resubmission. Sorry to the people who had commented and faved .__.; )

Hey, I'm probably not going to remember but I've decided when I get married, I want this to be my dress. If I remember, would you kill me if I had someone custom make this?

That's so pretty. o.o And a few years ago I was s'posed to get Arwen's headdress, but it was sold out a minute before my mum was gonna purchase it for me. ><; Yargh. I love how you incorporated a similar design in here.

Great job! :D

Okay, I know this deviation is ages old, but I was browsing your gallery and had to comment. Gardenias are gorgeous and my favorite flower, and are the sole reason I ever enter Bath & Body Works. The lace on the arm-sleeves and the veil-cape-thing (^^; ) are beautifully done. The coloring is absolutely breathtaking, along with the headpiece... I don't care if it's from LotR, it's gorgeous.
And because I have an unnatural obsession with shinies, the sparkles at the bottom are nice. >>;
