One of the best parts of an outfit is the material. Whether dealing with the crisp mediocre appearance of broadcloth or the soft luxury of silk, each fabric holds unique value. Fabric holds significant value in matters of authenticity. For example, you would not dress Robin Hood in silk any more than you would dress a king in burlap.

~The Greatest Error a costume designer can ever make
is using the wrong fabric ~

For example, what decides the difference between the following two costumes -- fabric.
This is a great costume -authentic, a good replica, and the model even looks like Russel Crowe! The differences in design are in keeping with the style and are convincing, BUT there is one huge difference: Velour.

The velour is completely out of place in the outfit. Grant it, we can not afford leather and chain mail, but broadcloth would have been better suited. Broadcloth and velour are equally as cheap.

A profusion of pink roses bending ragged in the
rain speaks to me of all gentleness and its enduring.
- Quotes William Carlos Williams

I was recently asked how this dress was made....

A tablecloth

A wedding dress

Some hair elastics

Roses from the Dollar


I promised to share the "In progress" pictures ~ Enjoy!
