Costume Information

Description
I'm SO in love with her season three dresses! And also in love with her. Quite a lot.

Making "The Bear and the Maiden Fair" dress for LFCC having found a beautiful brocade fabric from an amazing ebay seller. Once I've found a suitably close fabric for the "Dark Wings, Dark Words" dress, I will make that too!

I'm sad I didn't get to see this dress! It's really pretty. I saw you on Sunday as Daenerys though. I was blue Daenerys :)

Your dress looks lovely and the rose belt is perfect! Thank you for mentioning how you made the belt - the idea of using hot glue really helped me out with making my own.

Journal

Shawl details (Posted 4th July 2013)

As Margaery's dress is quite revealing, and I'm having to walk a little bit to get to the event, I've made a matching shawl in case I need to cover up :) quite simply a length of dark blue jersey fabric which I've sewn gold trim on at the edges and three gold roses in the centre of each side

Tyrell roses (Posted 1st July 2013)

Sculpted from fimo. The central rose for her belt and the smaller rose for her ring!

rose belt base (Posted 1st July 2013)

Just realised I've not posted any progress photos here and i'm nearly finished with this outfit! the base shapes and centrepiece for the most stunning part of Margaery's dresses in my opinion! Going to make it 3D with careful hotglue application and then paint :)

fabrics! (Posted 3rd June 2013)

Been going crazy looking for suitably close looking fabric for the fancy brocades on Margaery's dresses! Found a couple so far that I think may be the closest i'm going to get (without accidentally stumbling onto the actual fabrics used on show). For this dress, i think the fabric looks quite close, could be ever closer if it can be turned onto the other side so the gold is the background and blue is the detail.
