Embroidered underdress

~Please also have a look at my other Star Wars costume reproductions! ~ Queen Jamillia – the embroidered underdress Note: If you don’t want to embroider the underdress by yourself, you could as well use this fabric from Spoonflower. The (in that case printed!) embroideries are accurate to the movie dress embroidery pattern; and you […]

Ophelia by Waterhouse

J. W. Waterhouse’s blue Ophelia – a Pre-Raphaelite gown (respectively two dresses) This is a gown that I’ve been wanting to make for quite a long time – Ophelia, as seen in John William Waterhouse’s painting: Now, this is clearly not a ‘Medieval’ gown. It’s not a ‘Fantasy’ gown either. The correct term for a […]

Lord of the Rings costumes

Lord of the Rings costumes I’ve made over the years (Most of them for other people than myself, though) Most of these costumes required huge amounts of silk satin and silk velvet, of which I had to burn out the latter myself. As you can probably see, they were also made to accomodate a large […]

Unicorn Costumes

When I was painting some of the Unicorn tapestries to my living room wall in this project, I already thought about writing a studying page for the costumes in the tapestries and eventually make one or two of them – but that’s still a project for the future. When studying the tapestries I soon found […]

Unicorn Tapestries

I actually managed to avoid Harry Potter since about three months ago, when I discovered this costume in a picture – until then, I had not seen any of the movies (I don’t count ‘hearing one movie on TV because I was busy doing something else than looking’ as ‘seeing’!) nor had I read the […]

Elven Cranach gown

 I must say that I haven’t made an Elven dress for almost two years – before that, I’ve made dozens (see this gallery to see them all). However, when I was asked to actually design a gown from scratch, and only the main colors – red and gold – were given, I did so. At […]

Fast and Furious premier dress

I was invited to attend the European Premier of ‘Fast and Furious’ (the fourth part of the series) and had to make a proper dress (or rather, costume!) for that occasion. So I took some yards of white silk satin and painted the cars from the previous parts to it, using some sort of wax […]
