About this Costume
Construction Details:
Costume is constructed from 7 yards of $30 a yard ivory silk crepe fabric and 4 yards of gold textured fabric. Bodice is steel boned and reinforced with an inner layer of canvas. Ivory & gold braided trim was hand sewn onto the bodice and sleeves and accented with freshwater pearls.

Necklace pieces are molded from plastic, covered in Rub N' Buff, and the patina added with black acrylic paint. Hair beads are handmade from found items.

Lace front wig, FTW!

I can say that this was the most stressful costume I've constructed not due to really difficulty level but time constraints and a few trial & error mishaps. I contemplated setting fire to it before doing this photoshoot. Thus said, part of me absolutely loathes this costume.
