Could be worse, I suppose - but either way it's not a good mental image to have when trying to memorize stuff for a final exam. Razz

Is it just me or is Mme Firmin's costume on Broadway completely different from how it is in London? I can't remember how it looks like elsewhere, but I remember the difference being striking. Has it always been different, or did one production at some point replace the original design with something new?

Naaah, it's the same design, but they use very different materials, and different gloves. Unless the actual dress was for repair or similar when you saw the show, and they used a Don Juan Rehearsal one? I know the DJR dresses sometimes substitute the Victorian dresses used in Hannibal.

Here's three very different versions of the dress, but based on the same design:

It's at times like this we're lucky to not have credit cards.

My eyes did bug out at the cost of the notes though. I collect them and haven't paid more than $25 for a single note. $200 each is a bit more than I can/will spend for a note.

It's for charity, though. Not the actual price of how much the note is worth.

Also, if you'd like them all, and if you ever make it to the Broadway flea market, you can pick up the entire "suite" of notes, a copy of every one used in the show, in one bundle, for $50 I think.

I'd be so excited if I ever received such an item ! bounce

Some news Smile
Apron, tabs, and waterfall drapery are only pinned since I have to trim them before sewing anything. The closure is pinned too.
Sorry about the bad quality (and the size) of the pics T_T I only add a phone and a computer (which disappeared last Thursday... I've discovered my home burgled...

Well, more info about the making of my wishing dress on by blog, please forgive my mistakes, I try to translate as most as possible Smile
>> http://dentelleetsatin.blogspot.fr/ <<

First fitting with the mock up





A complicated seam!

The skirt


Random pics
















The bodice has been boned while it's not on the pics. I'm still waiting for appliqués and lace to trim everything.








If you have any question or advices, I take everything ^^ This is the first time that I sew a victorian dress (I only made 2 18th century costumes and a regency dress before that :S)

I join the applause chorus!!! There's some mighty impressive seamwork there. Have you lined the skirt, or used the cotton only? Curious of how it behaves.

Thanks Smile
No, the skirt isn't linned since the whole thing is really heavy already... I'll try to make my bustle stronger because I loose some volume in the back when the waterfall drapery is added to the skirt :S

I don't know if it will be helpful to some of you but I've found these shops for lace appliqués. If you have some advices about these... I'd be really grateful Smile

I guess they have supplied wigs for the show in the UK. So I Googled their name and sure enough, I found their website! Very exciting because as of yet, I was unable to find any other information. I found two pictures in their gallery of two different Christine's in makeup and hair. I am not sure if they work with individuals OR just theatrical companies (and I'm sure they are very very very expensive!) but thought I would share this with fellow costumers here on the board:

I'm "wiggin out" here!! Had to make a bad joke...lol

The U.S. Wigs are made by a NY company named René of Paris, I believe. At least that's what I think I heard on the Vegas tour, as well as it's on the label inside my Christine wig. Hope this helps a little scratch

I'm totally dressing up! Most likely in the Aminta costume. Just because the other costumes in my possession are too small, too badly sewn, or not finished. The Aminta one still fits well, and is easy to transport. And I like it.

Plus, Raphael is bringing the apple, hahaha!

I love the bodice of the US Star Princess costumes so much... Especially the elder ones, with bright pink bottom. And I love the skirts of the European Star Princess costumes so much. Especially the elder, fluffy ones. And when I noticed I had two nearly identical poses of two lovely versions from the US and UK...



...I started pondering over how a combo version of this would look. 20 photoshop minutes later I had this (and I'm sure RUG is fearing the solid photoshopping competition they're getting here Laughing ):



And I totally want this costume!

If I sell my Hannibal costume for the price I need to sell it at (*crosses fingers*) and I get to go to Vegas, I've been debating on what costume to wear. I was thinking it might be a good time to recreate Aminta, but I don't think I have the time or the money for new materials on that one. I thought about re-doing the Star Princess. I have all the layers from the skirt salvageable from my old costume, and I have tons and tons of beads already, so I'd just need the bodice fabric (which I conveniently made on Spoonflower).

But anyway, it's just a dream for now.

I agree, it'll be one impressive "phamily" meeting. Such a sad occasion, but also a way to contribute to a worthy farewell for an iconic production. Artistkae, I really really hope you'll make it to Vegas. With those costumes up for sale, Vegas shouldn't be far away?

Melly, any progress on the Wishing dress? AKA I-want-to-see-more-pictures... Smile

Someone buy that costume up! We gotta get that girl to Vegas!!!

And as for your question Kaedra on dressing up for Vegas, I'll be in my Slave Girl costume and dressing gown. Just need to order a new wig and the last one is all frizzed after using it in concert. Need to decide to whether to wear the white Peter Fox shoes or satin ballet slippers.

An article about the German Phantom costumes, written quite late in the run of the Hamburg production. I think it's from ca. 1998. Basically it tells that much of the charm - or rather fascination - of the musical is in the elaborate costumes (....no, I did not write this article myself.... Laughing ). 180 different costumes, around 2000 costumes in total in the understudy and spare costumes are accounted for, covering roughly five different eras, and the costume supervisor knows every detail.

Christine's Rooftop dress is described as being made from 25 meters of floral pink fabric, and it took around 300 hours to make. It also tells that Christine has around 45 seconds to get out of her Masquerade costume and into the azure blue Wishing dress, but the quickest change in the show is 25 seconds (they don't tell who that is, but I've been told that both Meg and Carlotta holds the record for the quickest change; Meg from Il Muto maid to Sylphide, Carlotta from her b/w dress to the Il Muto Countess).

The comment on the actual photos are rather generic; telling of how gentlemen of the Victorian/Edwardian era would dress, of how Madame de Pompadour defined much of the Rococo fashion (the Aminta costume being the Rococo example, interesting enough), and the different tools of the dresser and costume supervisor.

In other words, I would LOOOOOVE to see a full shot of the Aminta and Star Princess costume!!
