One thing I have been interested in for a while is recreating period film costumes for dolls. Costume design is an amazing art. It requires much study, research, and skill. All the hard work pays off when a gorgeous costume leaves an audience in awe.
I love period dramas! Often, they show incredible attention to detail in their costuming. This periwinkle gown from the film The Young Victoria is one I have long wanted to make in doll size. Notice the pleating at the neckline as well as the black piping which accents the seaming. Truly beautiful! Costume designer Sandy Powell really outdid herself, and secured the film an Academy Award.
Often times the only doll sized replicas of movie costumes available are not of the best quality. These are great for little girls to play with, but what about the collector? I would love to do highly detailed dresses of this sort! Bellow are several gowns I have considered for my personal collection.What would you like to see? Thank you for reading my ramblings for the day!
