One of my really good friends (now married to an Airman) has been through deployment with a significant other. She got a Boudoir session with a photographer and made him a calendar.
Nervously, I asked my airman if he would appreciate such a thing. The answer was yes.
Now, I'm not a "nude pic" kinda girl. Especially in this day and age where anyone can hack into anything and blast all your information to the entire world. So I figured if I were going to do a Boudoir session- it was going to be very me. And mostly covered.
So obviously I had to make a corset.
I went through a few designs, playing with accents on a purple silk.
I did make some ruffle butt underwear, though they are pink, and some french pantaloons. I hated the ruffle underwear with the ensemble, though they turned out cute and ruffly. The french pantaloons turned out beautifully(I thought), but when I turned to my mother for advice on how to complete the look, she said they looked "odd".
I guess outside of corset-adoring people (like me!) the general public doesn't really get to see that particular lingerie piece. Although I disagreed with her (I think they are cute!) I did realize that her "odd" reaction might also be his...
But I still needed something that would cover up a bit of my hips and bum. So she suggested a half skirt, parting in the front.
I made a quick skirt from iridescent, purple organza and a lace choker with purple flowers to compliment the black stockings.
