Another one of the costumes for my Midsummernight’s Dream movie. It’s Oberons (the fairy king’s) coat.
It was inspired by a costume Cardinal Richelieu wore in the musical production of the Three Musketeers in Stuttgart (I’d post a picture but unfortunately I’ve never been able to find one…)
Oberon’s elfs are dressed in the style of the Absolutism, but I didn’t want Oberon’s costume to be all blingy and over the top as most Absolutism styles (see Puck’s costume). The dark blue velvet and the black (fake g) fur make it look very regal anyway.
I made the pattern from scratch, but it’s as easy as it gets.
A quick note on the picture: the coat doesn’t really fit me (my shoulders are to narrow for a start) and it doesn’t suit me either. So I hope I can get a picture soon with the person it’s meant for in it.
Dark blue velvet, black fake fur, decorative hooks (which I accidentally found at a small store down the street happy dance)
