Gala Nocturna Gown

Cosplay, Finished Costumes

Somehow I always reach to the colors red, blue, white and black. In this case I used red and white as my colors for this gown.

What was my inspiration? What did I use?

It first started with this headdress that I made for a little photoshooting with my dearest Hanny Honeymoon. I felt so in love with the colors that I wanted to make a whole costume based on this headdress.

Since I wanted to use this gown for my second Gala Nocturna in Belgium I made it really extravagant. I used very expensive lace for the corset (it was the first time that I spend so much money on one yard of fabric…) and only dupioni silk and heavy brocade for the rest of the costume. My brocade has a nice woven rectangular pattern so I thought I need to put between every second cross a red glass bead (such a wrong decision… XD it took me AGES to finish the skirt, since every bead needed to be tied individually in the back…)

How many hours did I spend on it?

I guess over 100 hours… I spend too many evenings sewing the beads on… it was terrible. 😉 But I love the result!

What is my favorite part of it?

That’s hard to tell… I really love everything on this costume. But especially the jacket turned out very nice!

Red Queen Costume

Cosplay, Finished Costumes

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.

Baroquedresses

Finished Costumes

I simply LOVE baroque dresses! They are so elegant and they are never overloaded (the more the better for them!) I already made a few of them and I have already plans for some new ones.

Ohh… this black dress… I sold it some time ago… but now I would love to have a new one… and it will be sparkly and very extravagant *__* and black of course 😉 (picture by Atelier Simone Richter)

I really, really love this red costume! Since red is also my favorite color it has a special place in my heart. ❤ (picture by Hanny Honeymoon Photography)

This is my latest baroque costume and it reminds me a bit of the costume of Disneys fairy godmother (the reallife Cinderella movie) I really love how it turned out. (picture by Hanny Honeymoon Photography)
