Create a New Look by Layering Pieces You Already Own

Looking to create a new costume using clothing you already own? Get creative with layers! Check out how cosplayer Amy Wilder combined a high low hem skirt with a long bustle skirt to create a completely new look!

Amy created additional texture and visual interest by wearing a floral patterned top beneath a sleek longline corset. Keeping all pieces within the same color palette prevents the outfit from looking too busy. When layering, it's also important to use fitted pieces so that you maintain the Victorian-era hourglass silhouette.
