Cecile DuBuis by Martin Soulstealer

This Week's Fashionista is:

Cecile Dubuis, London, UK.

Describe your fashion:

Steampunk Post Apocalyptic Ballgown

Did you make, mod or buy your fashion:

A mixture of all three. The corset is from Etsy, the little bolero was made by Wyte Phantom. The hands on the hat were originally from Emma Brackenbury as a hairband but it has since then been through a few mods including being used on various hats. The hat was originally a simple little sinamay hat which I have since decorated in my own style.The skirts, under top and all the accessories I made myself. All the dolls are from car boot sales which I sprayed and added parts to.

What are your style influences:

I have many influences, from Goth, to fantasy and historical. The dolls came as an idea for a post-apocalypse ball many years ago, mostly for their use as a recycled material and their creepy nature. Since then many layers and different style fabrics have been added and mixed together. The latest addition was the flock bustle to add a touch of evening wear

Anything else you want to add:

When cutting the faces off plastic dolls be careful to note whether you have accidentally purchased a doll with a speech box. There is nothing quite so alarming as attacking a doll with scissors only for it to scream ‘Mama’ at you.
