Costume Information

General
Cost : £35
Time Taken : 2 Months

Description
This is made from Teal coloured crepe fabric for outer dress, cut on the bias grain. The arm gauntlets are stiffened and I use tradition authentic ties instead of strips of fabric between the gauntlets that Disney have drawn, I like to gowns to keep in tune with the character but look authentic to how they would of looked in real life.
The chemise is made from Ivory Crepe fabric.
Wig is 3 wigs mushed into one.
See my making of on my website or on my videos:-
