Cosplayer Beverly > Costume of Ophelia (John William Waterhouse, Artist)
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
I did all the beading in about 12 hours total, using about a dozen types of stones and glass: pearls, rose & crystal quartz, aventurine, amazonite, jade, jasper, garnet, labradorite, and others. I even got to use a friend???s great embroidery machine to add some much needed detail. There are many more details on this dress at my charmedseed.net blog.
- Personal Thoughts:
- JW Waterhouse's Ophelia painting is my absolute favorite piece of artwork of all time, and I've been wanting to create this dress for years. I spent a good deal of time altering patterns and researching how best to apply all the materials needed to make this dress the image of the one in the painting.
