Character/Costume Description

The gown was made to be as screen accurate as I possibly could as
this was a competition piece. Underneath the gown are a petticoat
and corset undergarments. The headdress was modeled in maya
and zbrush and 3D printed and finished with fabric mesh glued one
to match the texture of the film and swarovski crystals adorning it.
The headress was modeled directly over images of the actual
costume. All of the beading was done by hand and matched as close
as I could to the film costume. There are over 40,000 beads on the
gown. The outer layer has embroidery with gold thread and
swarovski pearls hand stitched on, it is made from silk taffeta with
the sleeves that are interfaced and stuffed with cellophane to
maintain the shape. The obi is made from an upholstery fabric I was
able to find online that was the closest match to the film, it will be
getting additional structure over the next few weeks. The second
layer is a combination of silk dupioni and silk chiffon, the chiffon has
been hand stitched all over with invisible thread to match the
texture of the fabric from the original film. The base layer is made of
maroon layered over blue chiffon to create a slight iridescent look of
the original gown as I could not locate a chiffon in that iridescent
color combo. It is pintucked all the way around. The makeup used is
the actual foundation that was formulated specifically for the film.

thorough work in progress.
