So…I am re-purposing/re-cycling a dress and accessories to make a Princess Ozma Costume…
“Help me step through the glass, Dorothy.”
My 1st attempt at making a Princess Ozma Costume was back in January. I only had one week to make something, so all I had time to do was create some pieces:
|January 2010: |
Collar made from brocade gold scraps
and green ribbons, worn over a
simple muslin empire gown
I already had on-hand.
January 2010: Wire headdress inspired by the costume from “Return to Oz” and the various cover art images from the Frank Baum books.
White Lace knee-length dress I purchased earlier this year at a cheapie “Forever 21-type” store in Berkeley for like 20 bucks. This will become the Princess Ozma Gown.
Sparkly bright green edgestitching I added to the bottom hem and tulle ruffle on the underskirt.
The dress, with my old Ozma collar thrown over it, and green ribbon laced up the front. ***I am not happy with the optic white shade of the dress.
