I always wanted a huge costume with a huge train… and since red is my favorite color I thought: why not make a whole costume in red? 😉
What was my inspiration? What did I use?
I guess I was a bit inspired by the queen of hearts from Alice in Wonderland.
I don’t know exactly how many yards of red taffeta I used… but I guess it were about 20 yards. The train by itself used probably half of the fabric up. All the ruffles were so extremely timeconsuming…. But in the end I love every bit of the costume.
How many hours did I spend on it?
To long…. Probably 60 hours? Or more? I don’t know exactly… but for my taste much to long XD
What is my most favorite part of it?
The train obviously 😉
For which occasion did I make this costume?
The costume was made originally for the Gala Nocturna (a nice masquerade ball in Belgium) in 2014. The train was made after the event and was used the first time at the Elf Fantasy Fair in Haarzuilens also in 2014.
