Figure 4: Sketch of Victorian Era Sci-fi Alien
For this project I was given the Victorian Era and to use it to influence a Sci-fi character. For my character I did a beautiful alien that would prey on humans, who'd draw men in with her gorgeous face only to reveal that her lower face is grotesque and that her hands are elongated claws. I based her outfit on early Victorian Era dresses where a V-shaped bodice and small waist was popular, as well as the bell pagoda sleeves that I thought would be good to hide how weird and monstrous her hands actually are. Her waist is tiny and based on how the Victorian women would use corsets to achieve a small waist and big dresses with large boning to emphasise large hips which was very fashionable in the early 1800s.
