Bellatrix Lestrange (Department of Mysteries dress) - Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix


Hoping to make a Death Eater mask too, this has the potential for some interesting photos.

About Bellatrix:
Bellatrix Lestrange (née Black) is a pureblood witch and senior Death Eater during both wizarding wars. Cruel, cold-hearted, deranged, and fanatically devoted to Voldemort, she was sentenced to life imprisonment in Azkaban following her master's fall in 1981 for the kidnap, torture and permanent incapacitation of the Aurors Frank and Alice Longbottom, but was broken out in 1996 and played an active role in the Second Wizarding War as one of the most loyal and devoted followers of the self-styled Dark Lord.

Corset progress

I decided that I preferred suede cord to waxy cord as I like the contrast - it gives a better overall effect. The leather 'corset' will go over the boned corset - I was initially going to glue the panels on to the regular corset, but I don't want to ruin the proper one so will be looking at how to go about it - possibly using hooks of some sort to hook over the under corset to keep it all in place. The leather I am using is from an old coat I had lying about - I used the lining of the coat to line the front of the dress, so there is a fair bit of recycling going on here!

The paint came out a little shinier than hoped but it still works! I have also started embroidering spirals onto this pattern. Will do the same for the other sleeve and the main dress and hood.

Dress progress

Slightly modified a dress pattern and lined the top (will be adding an underskirt later). Will be adding the hood separately. Corset is just for the base.
