This costume was interesting to put together. A chunk of it gave me a headache as I tried to figure out how some bits would work, other parts were a pain to do, etc. I hand embroidered a chunk of the stuff for this, and had to custom dye the cloth of the skirt and shawl. The shoes were originally black dress shoes that changed a lot in appearance with craft foam and wire. The wig was quite interesting to work with as well-I had to start with a shoulder length and add extensions and wire to hold the shape at the bottom.
