This homemade costume for girls entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Felicia, the 'Marie Antoinette' costume creator:

This is my daughter Addison (age 9) in a homemade Marie Antoinette costume. I purchased the silk, silk taffeta and other trim at a discount fabric store and started by making a basic dress. I improvised with all the trimming on the dress. I love the movie Marie Antoinette and so does my daughter. The costume was her idea and I was thrilled to make the dress. It took about six weeks to complete (sewing mostly on weekends), a lot of the trimmings are hand sewn. The color scheme was taken from a famous painting of Marie Antoinette in which she is wearing a blue and pink dress that differs from this one, so I used it more as inspiration. The hair took about 1.5 hours to tease and get it all in place. My sister in law is a photographer and we thought it would be fun to dress her up a few weeks before Halloween and do a photo shoot.
