About this Costume
Construction Details:
My Der Tod costume is a replica of Saeko's outfit from the Rudolph death scene. The jacket is a dark blue fully lined velvet with bat-wing lower collar, high upper collar and tails. It was appliqued with silver lame and then hand beaded with silver bugle beads around each silver design. (The appliques are on the collar, the sleeves, and covering the back of the jacket.) The collar and cuffs are trimed with black bugle beads as well. There's also a flowing second set of tails under neat the first tails on the jacket. The collar is trimmed with black sequins and crystals (as is the sash.) Grey and silver glass beads were strung for the belt at the waist. The wig started with a shoulder-length black and white wig (that was mostly black actually...) I used about 6 packs of silky hair and made them into extensions to make the wig super long in the back. Tristen Citrine helped me curl the bottoms into ringlets and I ventilated the top of the wig to add more white in.
Personal Thoughts:
This costume is very special to me. ^_^ I'm glad to be able to have performed in it and worn it with my friends.
