Marie Antoinette (Takarazuka Musical) - Rose of Versailles

In Progress




This is more of a hope than reality! But I HOPE to be able to do this costume for the RoV group for London Expo in May! ^^ I will most likely be doing a slightly simplified version, i.e. no backsack (or whatever it's called in English, sorry!) and not a proper corset but it should come out nice enough anyways! ^^

Edit March 2010 - This has been postponed. :) It will be done, but not for May.

Edit October 2010 - IT'S BACK! :D

Omg! When I was in Japan, one of the residents I was working with kept going on about Marie Antoinette...I had no idea didn't match the rest of the Japanese he used.... But OMG! I just realised he must have meant this. It all makes sense now.... The costume looks stunning by the way, good luck with it :)

HAHA that's hilarious! :P Yeah when I was over there and told people I was from Sweden I had quite a few ladies going "Ooooh, like Fersen!" (Fersen was MarieAnt's lover). It was brilliant. :P Thank you! It's been put on hold for a while, but I'm hoping to start it as soon as I can. ^^

Yay progress ^.^ the pleats on the skirt look amazing!!

Telly posted on 19 August, 2011 - 15:56
Thanks! Oh god the pleats are terrible if you look up close! XD But I'm being a bit sloppy with aligning the layers, so it's my bad. It's gonne be covered by another petticoat and the skirt anyways, so as long as it gives me the POOOOOF I need, I'm happy. XD

Thanks guys! You're all helping me keep up my motivation, cuz sometimes I wanna chuck this project out the window! But I've been on a total sewing-high lately so I finally feel like I'm getting somewhere with it, so that's a good thing. :D But YES, I still have so much work to do, I try not to think too much about all that embroidery. XD

I finally got around to ordering my wig! I got the Jeannie from Arda, in the Spanish Brown colour, so I'm looking forward to working some more with it. :D Yayyyy! :D

And I'm really amused by it. :P

Wig Decisions...

I'm so tempted to make this wig. XD It's so over the top, there's a fricking SHIP on her head! Not too worried about how to make the actual wig, reckon with some trial and error I can manage, but the ship... I dunno. But hey, this is my dream-cosplay, so why not go all the way? XD

3rd December 2010


Ok so I meant to do a different version of this, which means that the fabric that I'm gonna use for the version I've now decided on is slightly darken than it should be (I KNOW KAY). I really only chose the other dress cuz it was a bit simpler. But this is the dress that I really, really wanna make. So I'm gonna do it. xD

Here is my totally unfinished pannier with the velvet thrown over it to give and idea. There ARE three tiers to it, but the top one got lost in translation which is why the pannier looks so square. I'm gonna fix that. :P I also need ten thousand petticoats. :P
