Enchanted - The Prince and the Maid by alita-b-angel Enchanted - The Prince and the Maid by alita-b-angel
The costumes that nearly killed us.

From the movie Enchanted
Costumes made and worn by us.
Shot by the wonderful :iconrayfy:

Prince Edward: :iconalita-b-angel:
Giselle: :iconarlo-arleh:

And extra special kudos to our Wicked Witch Narissa :iconqueencattabby: and our other photographer Mark who joined us on this shoot for our magical moment! We hired horses. More on this later.

About these costumes:
Made for the TransTas Costume contest for Armaggeddon Melbourne and NZ and won overall best in show.

These were definitely our most difficult costumes to date. Every detail was hand done.
The Prince
And I mean, I literally sat there without an embroidery machine, and did cross stitching for every golden filigree embroidery seen here with a sewing machine. Every arm strip took 8 hours. The coat is velvet, with gold embroidery thread. All the boots, gloves and belt were brown leather with gold pleather, and I had to custom make each as they all had that @$% filigree on them. The sword is made of wood and polymorph on the handle, which is a durable moldable plastic. The Cape also had embroidery. The arm sleeves were the most difficult things to make ever, each had separate pieces that had to be first embroidered, then joined with metal wire so it would stand up, 4 layers of interfacing and then sewn together to form the sleeves.

The Princess, made by Arleh
Almost broke her down, almost 128 metres of tulle in that to form the underskirt, silk satin on top. All the glitter had to be hand painted and no error would be allowed. And the asymmetrical dress shape meant the pattern had to be one piece. Her sleeves also had hand painted glitter and she styled her wig herself. Then spent 48 hours embroidering jewels onto the bodice.

Though all in all, we love these costumes to bits.
