Christine Daae Angel Accessory

Slavegirl Chestplate for my friend who had the real angels :) I researched a few different Broadway versions to come up with the design/placement. They're all very very similar; some use different triangular brass pieces in the center - some use more green gems or more red gems, etc, so I went with a mix that was complementary of the standard Broadway versions. I searched for hours and hours to find some of the other brass pieces found in the real deal, which include the very top piece, the piece beneath it, and the triangular center piece. The two bottom pieces are very similar, and the little droplet was as lose as I could get. Glass gems and rhinestones of different sizes/colors are used throughout. They really catch the right - especially the medium and tiny gold ones that are scattered throughout the angels, which blend in in this still photograph.

Wishing Cloaks

 Made from a silky yet textured poly stretch tafetta blend, with a beautiful luster. I don't generally use tafetta, but this one reminded me so much of silk rather than normal tafettas. It's nice and crisp, with varied tones and a slight texture like dupioni. My wishing cloaks include a hair pin sewn into the top center of the hood, so it stays atop your head when needed. This is done in stage costumes like the real one in Phantom. The scarf is a lovely, super-soft scarlet knit with matching 6" chainette fringe.

Red Death

Easily the most complicated & complex costume in all of Phantom! This massive undertaking took hundreds and hundreds of hours to complete, and is inspired by the costume Ramin Karimloo wore as the Phantom. The main part of the costume consists of a doublet with elaborate sleeves, and breeches. The doublet is made from panels of silk velvets, crushed velvet, and brocades. These are trimmed with metallic twisted cord in shades of gold, black, and wine. Gold tipped-ribbons made from various brocades used in the costume hang over the skirting. Large bows handmade from many yards of ribbons and brocade, adorned with jeweled appliqués, decorate the center front. The paned sleeves curve over three tiers of puffed brocade attached to a sleeve base. The panes have many layers to aid them both visually and structurally. Along with being different sizes, they have different elements inside of them to keep the shape depending on the placement. They are trimmed in metallic gold bias tape. A good portion of these sleeve must be completely hand-sewn to ensure correct placement and the desired look. The cuffs match the elaborate sleeves and end in a ruffled metallic gold & black fabric, which is also seen around the collar. The breeches have a similar paneled theme as the doublet, except that they are placed on a diagonal. They consist of wine silk velvet, crushed velvet, and metallic brocade, with twisted cord trim and sequined jacquard trim between each panel. They also have a vertical panel on the outer sides of black velvet, which feature the same custom bows used in the doublet. The lowest bow has golden laces, chains, and beaded strands dangling from it. There is also a removable codpiece that ties on to the front of the breeches. The elaborate cape boasts almost 30 yards of pure silk dupioni. The double-layered cape is trimmed at the hem in gold and black ribbons. Atop the shoulders sit two large silk bows with brocade-lined ribbons hanging from them. Large golden tassels and ropes cascade around the front. The cape has a few different loops hidden in it: The traditional one most often seen, where the cape is carried over the right wrist. But the cape can also be worn down for dramatic photoshoot purposes. Hidden loops on both of the side fronts are included for both function of carrying the cape, and also the ability to spread the cape wide on both arms. Accessories include red stockings, custom-made shoes, and the elaborate hat. The shoes are made from the crushed velvet seen in the costume and the same decorative bows. The hat was made custom, decorated with the same crushed velvet, and adorned with golden trims, and glass crystals in white and gold. Many plumes adorn the hat, including both real and artificial ostrich plumes dyed red and black, as well as coque tail feathers in the same hues.

Star Princess #5

This dress, inspired by the one Sierra Boggess wore as Christine Daae, bursts with color and has layers upon layers of trimmings! The skirt is built upon hundreds of yards of colored tulle, netting and ruffles. Hand-sculpted and casted stars among rows of beads sit atop special iridescent and ombre fabric layers. The stars themselves are decorated with metallic paint, rhinestones, and glass AB faceted crystals. The bodice is specially colored with silk paints in a gradient reflecting a sunset. It is decorated with thousands of glass crystals, pearls, silver beads, and more. Starbursts at the center bust lay on many metallic lace-trimmed layers of ruffles. Dangling crystal and pearl beads decorate the shoulders. A special corseted back has been added to the bodice. Accessories include a tiara with the matching custom stars and hand-carved moon, custom Victorian boots, and a matching mask on stick bursting with the same beading and stars found on the costume.

Kikyo Zoldyck Dress

Kikyo Zoldyck Dress ~ A commissioned piece that combines Rococo and Victorian elements! The dress is supported by custom small panniers and a hot pink ruffled netting underskirt. The skirt flares out at the hips and yards upon yards of silver embroidered lace cascade over layers of the skirt and hem. The bodice is steel-boned and features a luxurious pink brocade center with embroidered patterns. It also has double rows of lace at the sleeves and a dramatic lace collar. We wanted the collar to match the lace, so I used a remnant of a silvery white fabric, and overlayed the silver lace on top. After trimming it in the same silver lace, I used cutouts of roses from the lace and hand-stitched them loosely to the collar for a 3D lace sort of effect. As a special little extra something, I lined the bodice in layers of cotton but used a fun purple silver polka-dot cotton as the interior layer.

It is simplistic yet extremely complex and decadent at the same time!

Ombre Belle

My twist on Belle's classic ballgown. Ombre is my favorite technique, so I wanted to include it here. It's most prominent in the pleated georgette swags, and there's a slight airbrushed ombre in the middle panel of the bodice. Tulle, georgette, and hand-made ribbon flowers adorned with pearls and gems decorate the neckline. An ornate, metallic gold lace decorates the middle bodice and the hem of the tulle layer of the skirt. Each swag is pleated onto a gold satin ribbon ending in gold roses. An antiqued golden bronze necklace completes the look.

Wishing Cloak #3

I absolutely loved working with these materials. My client requested a duotone silk for the cloak fabric; blue and black. Not only is the color change divine in real life but the silk is lightweight and flowing! My normal Little Lotte scarves are made from a bright cherry knit, but I felt that wouldn't fit with this special fabric - so I took silk jacquard (the same material Christine's dressing gown is made of!) and dyed it to a rich scarlet. I think the deeper color along with both materials being silk is complementary. As with all my cloaks, there's a hidden bobby pin in the hood to keep it atop the head!

 Dressing Gown #15

This was a custom version for my client who picked all her favorite parts from both the American and European versions of the gown. The paisley silk jacquard (used in the USA version) is used in the bodice, while a pebble silk jacquard is used for the skirt and belt base (Euro dressing gowns often have different fabrics). The ruffles are made from the same burnout satin as the American version, and the ornate, beaded belt is reflective of the European versions. A great mix of features and an example of making a replica your own unique item! I like to do that with my own replicas... pick and choose features or even add/subtract things. Makes it very personal.

Ariel’s Sail Dress from The Little Mermaid

Ariel's Sail Dress from The Little Mermaid ~ This ensemble was sewn entirely by hand! I also distressed and airbrushed the costume to look like the sail and rope were worn and aged by the sea. Ariel's ensemble changes a bit in this scene from something very bulky and unflattering ( http://bit.ly/1JbAa5z ) to something that looks like a very modern dress ( http://bit.ly/1Mj5Mp0 ) -- I've seen the 'modern' version done a bit, but it's just too simple and unrealistic for my taste... yet I didn't want to go full-on copying the unflattering look. I went somewhere in-between and tried to put my spin on it. It closes in the back with snaps - the ropes are hidden behind the muslin to look like they wrap around, but they're actually separate pieces so it's easy to get into the dress! This will be for sale after I use it for a photoshoot.

European Star Princess Sculptural Mask

After creating the European Star Princess skirt, I was so inspired to make a mask like the one shown in the costume design. I now had the means to make castings of the stars, so I decided to do it! And I would actually call this more of a sculpture than just a decorated mask. Many hours went into casting the resin stars, painting, building a wire infrastructure to hold the beads & stars on, and of course, all the decorations. Glass crystals and AB Rhinestones glitter throughout!

Skirt for Star Princess #4 (European Version)

This commission is being done in two parts so I thought I'd post photos of the first piece! Here's the Star Princess skirt, modeled after the European versions. Layer upon layer of blue tulle and netting is topped with a shiny iridescent sheer, a pale pink ombre, and a clear tulle layer with stars. The stars were hand-sculpted, molded, cast, painted, and decorated with glass crystal especially for this project! I plan on taking more photos of the skirt in different lighting since it transforms a bit, much like my Ariel dress!

Sea Goddess Crown & Necklace

For this crown, I used a heavy duty wire structure and wrapped it in gold ribbon. I also decorated it with some gold rope trim. I then glued on various seashells and spray-painted them gold. After that, I added gold filigree pieces and various gems! The necklace was also hand made; I took a thick gold string and wove it, knotting it at each 'intersection', and embellishing the ends with shiny gold beads.

Ariel’s Sparkling Dress

This has always been one of my favorite costumes. It’s simple, but the sparkle is enchanting. I layered a heavily sequined silver fabric underneath a sheer purple netting encrusted with tiny rainbow gems. To add even more sparkle, I stitched many sequins, paillettes, pearls, beads, gems, etc. along the bust and slit in the skirt. I felt like she needed an accessory, so I created a starfish hair comb encrusted with lots of sparkling things :) I photographed it in different types of lighting because it really transforms depending on the light.

The Phantom’s Cape & Hat

This cape was made from a small checkered suiting fabric I found that reminded me of the fabric used on the original costume's tailcoat, rather than its' cloak. I salvaged large beaded appliqués from a vintage dress and strategically placed them on the front, shoulders, and back of the cape. The hat was fashioned from a felt sun hat and altered into shape, and adorned with coque feathers. It is inspired by the "Wandering Child" hat The Phantom wears. The waistcoat, bow tie, and trousers seen in the photo are authentic staged used pieces in my private collection.
