Freudian Slip Costume by kittyvane Freudian Slip Costume by kittyvane
This is the Halloween costume that I never got to wear (besides for the photo, obviously).
I've been meaning to make this costume for ages, but I haven't gotten round to it untill now. It took me a day to gather all the materials and an other to put it all together. My budget was quite tight, so I rooted around the city for bargains that would still fit the the design. The total cost of this outfit came to about 25€.
My original design for this costume can be found here: [link]

The slip itself is a very old slip that I found at a local used clothing store years ago. I washed it, patched it up a little and then embroidered the word "Freud" on the front with pink sequins and clear beads. The inexpert shortening of the hem was done by the previous owner, and due to the delicacy of the fabric, I couldn't take it out without doing damage to the rest of the hem.
The wonderful granny-bra and panties are a terrific find I did at a supermaket near by. Not only were they very cheap, they're super comfortable too. I decorated them with lace and a bit of ribbon for the bows. I couldn't follow my original design exactly, as the way the lace was set out in the design didn't look good on the bra I got.
The stockings I did nothing to but wear them.

Photos taken by ~sumppi and me.

It's a kinda freaky coincidence. A couple of my friends and I were talking about how there should be an item of clothing called a Fruedian slip (the context for which discussion being the pub :D ); seems you got there first. lol. :) It's pretty funky.

I don't usually gush about deviations, but this is brillant! The style is perfect, the joke is subtle (I'm glad you used pink sequins), the pictures are well put together and to top it off it's one of those rare inspirational deviations that make you want to get off the internet and actually DO art. I don't know why I never thought to put my conceptual halloween costumes on devart, but I now I can't wait to put my costumes back together and post them. Thanks for being fabulous.
P.S. I love the rest of your gallery too.

ihan hyvä läppä ;)
petitioner Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2004   Photographer really is a wonderful costume...quite sexy if i may say, but not even a tiny bit trashy...i wish more of my models would come up with fabulous ideas like this -- i might not avoid shooting clothing so much if they did!

kittyvane Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2004  Professional Artisan Crafter
Why thank you. :)
I'm very pleased with the way this turned out even if I did have a bit of a hard time bringing it together.
:) the name you gave this made me smile..

very cool. Sexy at that! :w00t:
aap Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2004
Hehe, that's hilarious. Fairly exposing, but fun if you don't mind going to parties in your undies :D. Miss the toesocks though. Great concept.
kittyvane Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2004  Professional Artisan Crafter
Well, it's not really as exposing as it seems. It's not nearly as revealing as a bikini for example and the slip is pretty opaque in the end.
I used a granny bra & panties for a reason, they cover much more than ordinary underwear (and the fit the style of the costume better too).
ukiyo Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2004
yeah i'd be a bit afraid to wear it (this way) but :heart:
very wel done!
panda-eyes Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2004

I'm blinded by beauty... and blone hair!!!
kittyvane Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2004  Professional Artisan Crafter
Shhh! :shh:
I just haven't died my hair in a while, and my roots are showing a bit. :blush:
lolly Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2004
Haha! Awesome! The much talked about Fruedian Slip lives up to it's mom!
kittyvane Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2004  Professional Artisan Crafter
Hihih! :giggle:
You had a slip of the thong!
...Oh! I mean tongue!
ladygekko Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2004
So pretty.... And you're not too thin. You're just perfect to stand around in your bathroom posing in a slip. I'd bulge in places.

kittyvane Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2004  Professional Artisan Crafter
I poke in places, but I'd love so much to bulge.
I guess you always want what you can't have. :shrug:
smurfwreck Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2004
Awesome, too bad you didn't get to show it off, except well here. I love halloween costumes like this that seems obvious but most people probably wouldn't get unless you spelled it out for them.
ginnyhaha Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2004
:XD: That's great. Surely it would have been too cold to wear at that time of year, though? :\
kittyvane Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2004  Professional Artisan Crafter
Actually, it wouldn't have been too cold, as the party I was supposed to go to was held indoors. I could have worn warmer clothing on my way to and from the party, and just wear the slip indoors.
If I'd have to celebrate Halloween outside, I'd propably dress as something that allows me to wear lots of warm clothes, as the weather out here gets wicked cold even this early in the winter. :D
ginnyhaha Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2004
Ah, that makes more sense ^-^

The problem with Hallowe'ne is the time of year it falls at -- when you have to be wrapped up nice and warm, you want to dress up!
shortthing Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2004  Professional Traditional Artist
aha!! I knew there was a reason grandma underwear survived!! It looks great :D Can anyone say: Multi talented?
kittyvane Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2004  Professional Artisan Crafter
I have never liked granny undies before, but they're perfect for this! And to my surprise, granny bras are so much more comfy than the ordinary underwired contraptions.

And thank you for the compliment. :hug:
digifox Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2004
Clever, and cute!

(Like much of your work. Hmmm.)
