This costume was made from twenty some yards of ivory taffeta, several yards of blue silk taffeta, five hundred plus rhinestones, and over thirty yards of various trims.
Everything from my shoes, to earrings, to corset and bustle were created by me with the help of many-a-internet tutorials. It was a process of trial and error, and many (many!) failures before I reached a shape and product i’m pleased with.
The only thing I didn’t take part in creating is the tea pot, which was crafted from foam by my father.
It took three months and more hours then one can imagine to create this beast.
You can read about how it was made in the six posts below:
I also have several photosets of this costume
