Maleficent 2014 movie christening gown scene costume
|Costume type:||Costumes for Women|
This homemade costume for women entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Annissė, the 'Maleficent' costume creator:
I am the wearer and designer of my Maleficent christening gown and train as seen in all photos I submitted. This is a replica fashioned after the costume Angelina Jolie wore in the live action movie. My gown, train, head dress horns and staff are made solely by me. The gown and train were created from black silk and hand pleated by method of Shibori. Shibori is a Japanese technique where the silk is rolled one yard at a time after iron on fusing was added to it, wrapped around a PVC pipe, string is them wrapped around the fabric, the fabric is then pushed down the pipe with the string holding the pleats now in place and finally hot boiling water is poured over the fabric. When it air airs the pleating remains permanent.
I did this method 50 times. The gown and train are 50 yards of silk Shibori in total.
The horns are crafted in air dry clay called Apoxie Sculpt in black then wrapped in leather. My gown collar is made in leather. The pendent is cast from an actual raven head. Side hip decorative pieces are sculpted in Apoxie Sculpt. My staff lights up.
This was around 3 months work off and on. Material costs range are $700.
