|I love Miranda Richardson ^-^ I enjoyed making this costume so much! It was made in quite a rush before I went to the Deathly Hallows book launch at Waterstones in Edinburgh. I had my picture taken so many times, but sadly I don't have many pictures to show for it >.<|
The blouse and skirt were really simply cut and fairly easy to construct, I had a little difficulty dying the sheepskin offcuts I had lying around but they made excellent trims to my collar and cuffs. The wig I had preiously from my JANE collection photography, so I just had to resyle the curls to suit Rita. I wear contact lenses or glasses so it was kind of weird to be wearing clear glasses in this costume!
My favourite aspect was my Quick Quotes Quill which I hand dyed to just the right shade of green, and added a little golden nib to the end. I really got into character for this one ^^
