Wow, that Elissa costume is truly amazing!

Hi guys! Anéa very kindly encouraged me to post on here about my Elissa dress, but I see she beat me to the punch! Here are some more pictures, though, in case you're interested.



Here's the larger version of that and others:

http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd253/loettchen/Projects/Hannibal%20Dress/carlottagarden3.jpg

http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd253/loettchen/Projects/Hannibal%20Dress/phantomshoes.jpg

http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd253/loettchen/Projects/Hannibal%20Dress/carlottaback.jpg

It's primarily American version, although you can see in that picture of the back that I more or less completely abandoned the American train in favor of a more European one.

Here's the Photobucket page and my site too: http://s225.photobucket.com/albums/dd253/loettchen/Projects/Hannibal%20Dress/
http://loettchen.livejournal.com/

Don't judge the Dressing Gown too harshly! I made it in six hours the night before the event when, panicking, I realized I didn't want to wear Carlotta all day in a crowded room.

I'm glad Anéa showed me this place. I'm so impressed by all the great stuff posted on here! Can't wait to see more!

Front and back, it's a drop dead gorgeous replica. Love that crown too! Carlotta has such awesome costumes. There should be more replicas of her wardrobe items. Smile

Is the skirt really heavy to wear?

I liked the dressing gown too. For just six hours work, that's great.

Soooo happy you made it over here, Loettchen! I just couldn't resist posting some pictures, I think I squeed when I saw the new pics of the Elissa costume. It's amazing!

I must say I also dig the backdrape. As much as I dig the American Elissa costumes, I've never got used to all the purple mixed with green and red, and I actually think they're becoming TOO ornamented. I like the clean lines and the introduction of an extra tab in other backdrapes a tad more - although that of course is a personal preference.

Again, wow. Amazing work.

Thank you so much! The skirt is a bit heavy, but it's not bad to wear, especially with the hoop. And I agree. Carlotta doesn't get the love she deserves. I would really like to do her Notes II dress. Perhaps one day.

Again, thanks so much! You're so kind! And I'm with you on the backdrape. That purple and orange in the American train always struck me as jarring. Plus, I loved the idea of the tab in the back, so I finally told myself I was just going to mix and match. I think that's the beauty of POTO costumes. Because each production is a little different, you have freedom to tweak according to your personal taste. For instance, I didn't like the American tabs, so I just made up my own tab design. But you still get the idea.

Wasn't sure whether to put this here or in the book section. It could go in either.

During the costume/makeup workshop at Phantom Fans Week, Sam Fleming recommended a book titled, "The Great Opera Stars in Historic Photographs". She said that a great deal of the show comes from that book. If you've looked at Phantom On A Budget's YouTube videos you'll see Sam talking about it.

I just received a copy of the book and have to agree with Sam, if you're interested in costuming and historical accuracy, then you should get this book. There are 343 black & white photos with short text descriptions of the singers/characters/dates. As you start leafing through the pictures you start to recognize where Maria Bjornson got ideas for some of the Phantom costumes. Sometimes you look at the whole costume and recognize it(Meg's boy costume), other times it's part of a costume. Lots of fun.

It's not an expensive book either. I found mine on eBay for $4. There are a few different versions of the cover but it's the same inside.

Loettchen, your Carlotta Elissa gown is wonderful. Very impressive. I really hope you will make Carlotta's red dress one day because I'm already looking forward to seeing it Smile .

Lookie what came in the mail today! Six yards of lovely.



By the by, I discovered after taking this picture that six yards of brocade are difficult to fold neatly.

I got it on sale for 40% off, so all six yards (normall $9.99/yd) plus shipping cost me under $50. Not bad, not bad at all. I was annoyed when I found out it had gone down to 50% off the next day, but whatever...

Mandy, if you have an empty bolt to put it on, I would suggest that rather than folding it. That way you only have the center fold to deal with later versus a bunch of them. Smile

Yay! The material came. Your first Meg costume was really good but with this new gorgeous material, your next version is going to totally amazing. I'm sure it will have more of that 'finished look' that you said you were going after. Great price you got too even if it went on sale 50% off the next day. Isn't that always the way?

I'm still endlessly amazed at how talented so many of you are at making such awesome costumes. I've never sewn more than a straight line in my life. Smile

I don't, but maybe I can find something else to wrap it around. I just folded it last night to put it back in the little box (and I mean little! I was afraid they'd sent me the wrong amount of fabric when I saw the tiny box) that it was shipped to me in, but my parents probably have something laying around somewhere that will work.

Omigosh, Phantomgirl110, I think we have the same fabric! It's beautiful, isn't it?

I can't wait to see your new Meg costume. Actually, since I've never seen the old one, I can't wait to see it in general. Good luck on everything!

I hate being broke and talentless, because I have a sudden and very strong urge to make a dressing gown (I guess it's for the best, though, since I hardly have the motivation to do my school work as it is).

This is the fabric I'm thinking of using for my PONR cloak. Any thoughts?

Looks like a good pattern for the PONR cloak, but I'm thinking that jacquard could be too heavy. I think you need something very, very light to get the right fall of the cloak, but I've never been able to figure out what kind of fabric they use.

Phantomgirl110: Fantastic material you got there. I can't wait to see your new Meg masquerade costume.

Ooh, Littlelotty, that's very pretty. I love the stomacher! I never see people do that outfit.

And I second Phantomlove's thought that jacquard might be a little too heavy. But it's hard to know without seeing the actual fabric.

Can I just say how AMAZINGLY talented all of you costume creating folks are??? I am soooo impressed with all of the gorgeous costumes I've seen in this thread!! Fantastic work!!! Very Happy Shocked Very Happy

And I know I've been saying this for years but I've decided I really for realsies have to learn how to make a costume this year if Jeff and I are really for realsies going to Phans week in Vegas next fall. Otherwise I may end up wearing a bed sheet with holes cut out for eyes.... 'I got a rock...' Laughing

Are you thinking a Phantom costume? Or a costume in general? (just curious)

I'd like to try making a Phantom costume. Actually, I have a blue dress that's made in a fairly Victorian style, and I've thought of just trying to remake that into the Wishing Dress. Hoping maybe that since I'd just be attempting to modify something I already have it would make it slightly easier? ::fingers crossed:: Of course, I haven't tried to sew anything more challenging than a button in years, so I think it will be a pretty eye opening experience for me!

Unless I do show up in a bed sheet, and then it would just be a generic costume, obviously Laughing
