Description

I created this costume using a vintage 80’s wedding dress as a base. It was for a masquerade party aboard a ship sailing around the Hudson and East rivers this past November. There was a giant tulle skirt as the bottom part of the dress; I took the top two layers to make the head of the jellyfish, while the rest formed the base of the tentacles. The top part of the dress I covered with the plaid satin. (Underneath is a corset style bodice complete with boning/beading/the works.) We talked about trying to make it a full-sized jellyfish with the head being where the wearer’s head would be but it proved to be too much work (I only had 4 days to finish it!). The overcoat already existed, but I added a collar piece to have it match the dress better.
