Costume Information

Time Taken : 15 hrs

To make this dress I originally wanted to use only two seams (as the original was made this way) but my fabric was nowhere near wide enough so I had to insert some princess seams at the front and back. The original is also two dresses, however I made it into one dress for ease and to be a bit easier on the bank account!

I didn't finish the costume completely in time for Ayacon, but it was wearable so I threw some braid on the sleeves to make it look a bit nicer. Now that the con is over I plan to recreate the original trim used in the film using embroidery, which will probably take a while but I won't be happy until it is as screen accurate as I can get it!
