Draped Velvet Dress, Photos

As promised, here are the worn photos of this years Christmas Costume!

These were taken at a Christmas tree farm. This was our fourth years photographing a costume there, and I think this year was the most successful. The lighting was on our side for once, and it’s easier to focus on a red dress than a white one. It’s also a really easy dress to lay out and walk around in since there isn’t a petticoat.

The only downside was it being a bit muddy and really cold. It isn’t a practical dress for December. But I think it looked lovely in this environment, so I’m glad that I didn’t let that stop me.

Construction notes on this dress can be found here. And making of videos are posted here.










And that’s it! I think I have one more post going up before Christmas, but incase I forget: I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, or Holiday, or if you don’t celebrate, then a really great week in general. Thanks for reading!

    I like your photos. I love the photo where you are smiling. Wish you would include more of those once in awhile. I know it is all about the costume but sometimes the facial expressions make a difference in how you interpret the dress and it’s occassion.

    I like the shots of you sitting on a log the best! You might disagree, but I think you’re quite talented at draping on your dress form. Good job. See you in movie credits some day!

    I think this dress turned out amazing – you look like some Yule Forest Goddess of old pagan lore. I love it!
    I actually managed to score like 4 yards of red velvet from a thrift store for about $2 and I’m thinking of turning it into a full gathered skirt… Or maybe a dress of some kind, we’ll see. 🙂 This has been a very inspirational post.
    But anyways, you did a great job with this dress!

    This costume is fantastic, I love it! Like somebody else said, you remind me of a character from A Christmas Carol. It looks so ethereal on you.
    Have a very Merry Christmas and a happy, successful New Year!
