Almost Human Android Tech dress…..so far. I still need to add the name badge and finish connecting some of the lines. When it’s on, the butterflies stand up more. It looks weird because it’s flat. x.x The tulip earrings are hanging from the hanger center.

Anywho, so y’all know what I’m up to. (also, the butterflies have tech lines drawn on them that shine when light hits them, it will show better once I put the fiber optics in.)

The “transformation” part being that this is an ensemble with a jacket but no images were provided of the jacket by the institution.
