Beautiful work! Amadalia

I wish I had been able to attend CVI this year, but Fall Semester started on the 23rd (Thursday...really?). I would've loved to have seen this gown in person!

Haha I don't know! I think I hovered after the photo shoot (I was in my Naboo pilot) and then a bit later I was circling you while you were talking to someone so I could check out all the details. Stealthy stalker status, almost!

My wife and I are looking at making this costume for her and I'm working on the headdress part. I was wondering what everyone is useing to make these parts? I have seen different materials and wanted to see what the best route is to start the process. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

where did you get this?

I *think* I may have found a very good piece of lace for the overlay on the headdress!


It's not an exact match (particularly because the larger flowers are somewhat missing!), but I guess it would work. I just need to cut it very carefully because the size is almost exactly that of the two 'swords' which need to be covered... and then I still need to figure out how, and where, to place the 'center stripe' in my cutting layout.
Opinions?

By the way, that's linen lace, so it can be dyed without problems.

Sorry for not replying earlier, real life was a bit busy...

That's a small antique Brussels lace tablecloth which was a lucky find on Ebay. I think it's between 70 and 100 years old.

What a find!
I'm such an ebay and etsy hunter myself. I love looking through all of the vintage. I've found some really awesome costume pieces over the years.
