Description

I made this dress for a meeting organized by a french forum. The meeting is based on Dracula, a movie by F.F.Coppola.
I chose to make Lucy’s snake dress because I love green color and it’s not a famous dress.
This costume was hard to make : I painted the snakes with acrylic (a friend helped me) and I had a lot of troubles with patterning the sleeves.
To keep the volume needed, I made undersleeves in thick fabric.

The costume is composed of a bustle, a bumpad, two underskirts, a skirt, an over skirt with snakes and a bodice.

I very happy with how it turned out !

      I’m happy you thought it was a “real” fabric ! I wasn’t sure if painting was a good idea first.
