I love the design, as the colors clash quite nicely. The collar part seems to be a sort of fur-like fabric, I like how it gives a more lush appearance around the top. The jewelery is not my favorite, but it looks absolutely perfect for this dress!

I must say that this dress would be quite the project to make, but it would be worth the while. The jewel on the left (our right) side of the dress does seem to represent a bee on a flower, as I spot a pair of wings coming of of it.

The white section on the bottom right (our left) does not seem like it should belong if you focus on it; however, it does bring the dress together and look nicely with it. (This is meant to be a compliment, not an insult!)

As usual, your coloring style and design is stunning and amazing. I look forward to see more!
I could imagine this being a more 1800's dress, but I might be wrong.

I've always been truly amazed by your work! As intrigued as I am by unique fashions like these, I never seem able to produce my own, which I guess adds to my interest in your abilities, haha!

This definitely captures both the classic black and yellow stripes and soft yellow fuzz always associated with bees, but it presents it in a sophisticated, classy manner instead of some cartoony, obvious costume. See, unlike some Party City bumblebee costume, this is a gown that both delivers the objective of a regal queen bee, and is also wearable. I could picture this dress being worn for an actual occasion, Which is actually quite amazing when you think about it; you've managed to skillfully revisit a classic theme (because honestly, "Queen Bee" is used as a theme in many costumes, art pieces, etc), but deliver it in a new way, bringing out the potential that overused theme has instead of just drawing something that's been drawn a hundred times before, with it's only individual uniqueness coming from your personal style.
This is simply sophisticated. It's believable, so to speak, and the Queen Bee theme isn't bold enough to interfere with the gorgeous, desirable nature of the overall gown.

I haven't had the chance to critique much of your work, but for at least this, an awed round of applause to you and your talents--it's always an exciting joy to see what you create! Keep up the great work!
