Fiona dress

Hi! I posted recently about a green corset I made that was inspired by the costume of Princess Fiona in Shrek The Musical. Well, I had some green cotton gauze left, and I decided to make a dress to go underneath.

I basically made a regency drawstring dress, but with a tight zigzag edge on the skirt and sleeves, and with a shorter skirt. With the corset on top, it really looks great!

And this is how it looks like without the corset... sorry for the bad picture.

Have a nice day!

A medieval roleplay costume with an asian twist

Hi! I've been trying out medieval role-play (also known as ''Grandeur Nature'' in french). Some friends of mine invited me to try it out and turns out I had a great time!

My costume was a co-creation. I was to play the little sister of my friend, so we decided to basically make the same costume as her, but in different colors. Her first inspiration was the costumes in the chinese movie ''The Four''. Here is what mine looks like:

My friend made the pants and kimono, and I made the hat, belt and apron. She is actually a professional costume-maker, if you're in the Montreal area and need a kick-ass costume, call her! click here for her professional Facebook page. 

Action shot! Too bad I don't have a picture of the back. The patchwork continues and it's really pretty! After the weekend I realized I would need a little belt pouch to carry my stuff. So I whipped this up yesterday:

I've also been working a little on Regency stuff, but I really need to get on with it before the festival. I'll post about that as soon as I have enough stuff to show off!

Have a nice day!

A 50's look...

Hi! I had a 50's themed party this weekend, so got all dolled up and had a lot of fun jiving and singing with my friends! I didn't take lots of pictures, but I did manage to snap a few shots of me before I left.

The pink dress in vintage, I got it on Etsy and it was rather cheap but a little damages. I had to fix a few holes, re-hem it and fix the waistline. I made a simple slip to wear underneath since the dress is a little transparent. I also made the petticoat a while ago and found out that it would go well with this dress. The belt was a gift from someone and it just happened to be perfect to complete the look. 

Have a nice day!
