Gotta say, Viscountess, I'm going to look like a queen in it. (I promise to post pictures of me in full costume in a month or two.) bounce

I agree! It's so perfect I like it! I still have to make my dressing gown. Gah!

I return just to say that.. IT'S FINISHED! (yeah I spam every website just to say my joy!) It's been so long to finish it! I had many costumes to do this year that this dress has been waiting for some months before being finished :S


The whole adventure is on my blog: http://dentelleetsatin.blogspot.com

Very Happy

Awesome job, Melly -- it looks beautiful!
I wish I had the kind of talent (like you have) to make costumes like that -- I envy you! Smile

Melly, it's spectacular. It's just... wow. I love the job you did with that fabric. Looking forward to see photos of it in you-know-where!!

Many of you have probably seen this on my FB costume page, but anyway... The Sylvan Glade costume is finished:



Only thing left is the floral headgear. I'm working on that now. Once again I've come to appreciate the insane amounts of details on Maria Bjørnson's creations. Every little part has a drape, a trim, a pleat, a different fabric. I worked a long time on trying to make the flowers look "casual" in placement, and to get as many green and pink shade into it as possible. The whole looks rather unison, but the shades side by side are fairly different. It gives a rich look. To be honest, I'm happy with the result and wish now I made it in my size... I made it to finance my Las Vegas trip, and hence I made it smaller to be easier to sell, but didn't finish it in time.

A bit more here: http://aneafiles.webs.com/sylphide.html

Melly, that's beautiful! The train looks great. Love the bow and the appliques! It's so exciting to see that fabric in use!

Thank you for the nice words. Any suggestions on what costume to do next? Very Happy

On my maybe list is Carlotta's red second act dress (but the MATERIALS NEEDED!), the Mandarin coat (someone on this board has asked me about it), the Phantom's cloak, Meg's Gypsy costume and a new dressing gown for myself. But I could always make the list longer...

Well, Anea, I have to admit that I love love love Carlotta's dresses, although I would also be interested to see some Don Juan stuff done. Maybe Carlotta's Don Juan dress. There are some cool outfits in that scene, but not a lot of attention is paid to them.


On a different note, I really wanted to do a snowy photoshoot for the Wishing Dress, so I dragged it out of the closet, brushed it off, and waded through a foot of snow, only to find all the snow had already melted off of the tree branches, so the "Winter Wonderland" look is kind of missing. Bummer. Anyway, thought I'd share.





I used a wig this time, borrowed from my friend. I'm really grateful to her. I think the wig adds a lot to the character look.

Ooooh, how gorgeous. I agree that the wig adds a lot. But the dress itself, and the landscape, and you - it all adds to the photos. I especially love number three, full shot, standing up.

Anea, you should do the Mandarin coat! It's something new and it has so much interesting embroidery!

Loettchen! wow, what a gorgeous photoshoot. Do you happen to know by any chance who makes the wig? I need a Christine wig and I've been searching all over for the right one.

ML6, the wig is "Diana" from Amphigory Wigs - http://www.amphigory.com/wigs_diana3.html
It worked well for the shoot and was comfortable, but I would warn that it has a bit of an unnatural hairline and fairly thick, frizzy curls. I had to do a lot of pinning to tame it, and I'm not sure how well it would hold up for close-ups. Sorry for the slow reply!

I am very, very, very tempted to give that one a go...

Well, it's only one year since you tackled it last, helped by immense amounts of coffee, so it's about time. Razz

This isn't tweaking things and finishing it up...This is a no-kidding overhaul. Behold the to-do list:

Make a brand new set of pants--the pattern has changed quite a bit since the initial assembly in 2004. Going to start from square one and fix the issues with the foundation. There are also some design details I'd like to change up. I'll be re-using all trims that are on the current pants.

The doublet pattern is also faulty. I didn't make the doublet long enough. Rather than piece extra fabric in, I'm going to start over on the doublet, as well. The angle on the chevrons must also be changed (per Sam Fleming notes).

I also need to fix the sleeves. The sleeve pattern at the shoulder seam isn't correct, but it needs the arm hole on the doublet to match. The pattern isn't the main work load on the sleeves, though...the bulk of the work is going to be taking the sleeves apart (again!) to get the trims properly attached and sealed in. Oh, and I got a new fabric for half of the piping, so I have to completely disassemble the sleeves so I can install the new piping (96 pieces). sigh...

Then there's a bunch of little things that need to be finished up (cape, mask, hat...)

So, hopefully it won't take too long to fix the issues with the costume. I'm ready to be done with it.

Ok...this overhaul is going to take forever...The only thing I've been able to accomplish is re-organizing my pin cushion and cleaning my craft room. Granted, I've been working on a different costume for someone for Halloween (almost done!), and some candelabras that are hogging all of my floorspace...once those are done, though--game on!

I'm excited to see your new Red Death, Phantomfett. The old one is so great, I can only imagine what the overhaul will look like!

And speaking of Red Deaths, I totally forgot I did this photoshoot months ago (yes, I do a lot of photoshoots) and was just sitting on the pictures. The Christine is my good friend (costume made by her), and my cousin is wearing my Meg. We had resisted doing a Masquerade photoshoot for a long time due to lack of a fitting location, but we finally found one! So I figured I'd share, as usual. Oh, and I threw in some Carlottas from the same shoot. You can click on the thumbs for the larger versions.

<<pretty cool indeed, did you win the cloak on ebay not long ago?>>

Thank you!  No, I've had the cape for a few years now.  I gave Jan the design specifications and picked out the beaded applique, and she made the cape for me; she then started offering them on ebay.  In fact, she uses pictures of me in the cape for her ebay auctions.

EvilAshLives, FANTASTIC costume!! I especially like the old school look (which, if you know anything about me, you'd know is a major compliment Wink )

Thank you very much - I appreciate it!!  I've done a few modifications since these pics - I hope to post new pictures soon of the complete costume.  In the meantime, here are a couple headshots and a few pics of my 2 Crawford replica masks.  

By the way, I'm the one who submitted the question to you requesting a detailed analysis of the Phantom's costume - I'm very much looking forward to your reply!

Here are a couple more pics of my modified tux.  Again, I'm trying to get this as close to Michael Crawford's costume as possible (within my limited budget), hence the unique double-button pattern on the shirt and the shape of the bowtie/cravat (the bowtie/cravat was custom made, as was the vest).  I had velvet added to the top collar of the tailcoat, black satin lining added to the interior, and replaced the buttons to follow the pattern and number on Crawford's costume.  Enjoy!
