So after seeing the first skirt I made (which can be seen here (http://www.sociocide.com/forums/showthread.php?t=53927) if you missed it), another friend decided to commission one for herself.
I finished it a while ago, and finally gave it to her last night.

The skirt is made from large aluminum-clad steel scales, with black steel for the trim. There were a few stylist changes, in order to differentiate it from the other skirt; smaller and more frequent petals, no belt, different metals, etc.
There are about 1500 scales total in the skirt.
The choker was made from scales I had leftover when I finished the skirt, and was sort of a surprise gift. She had mentioned that she liked the idea of a scale choker, and it seemed appropriate.

Nice, there's seems to a slight green tint to some of the scales, but that may be the picture. On the choker, does it sit well? It seems very...leafy. Do the scales stick out or pull weird at her neck?

how much would you charge to make another skirt/choker set like that?

Just letting you know that you spelled "Zbyszko" wrong in your avatar title.

Awesome skirt, though.

Well done, but the belt in the ither one really seemed to set it off more. It may have also been the color differences too.

Remember - it's not a miniskirt, it's a tunic.

Glad to hear the belt's still treating you well.
Have gotten any photos of yourself wearing it yet?

Yes, there's some on facebook, but they have other people in them so I don't feel comfortable posting them hear. I'll see if I can do a little editing.
