Costume for the Queens Gallery by MissMaefly Costume for the Queens Gallery by MissMaefly
A costume for a costume parade event at the Queens Gallery for the exhibition 'In Fine Style, the Art of Tudor and Stuart Fashion' 2013. Much inspired of the public image and the price paid to stay on top.

Idea, concept, construction, making, make up, props and photo by me.

Costume for the Queens Gallery by MissMaefly The beetle details and the beautiful Rococo swirls are subtle and well done. The headdress gives it an eerie, almost sinister feel, in all the right ways! ( Suggested by catiecurrandesigns and Featured by Brookette )

This is so amazing! The amount of detail with all the small beads in different colours is incredible ... Indeed it looks powerful and worth a queen!

She does indeed =) I played a bit with how fragile and very young the model looks, almost encasing her in this armour-like dress - superfun!

I love the layered, intricate, armor-like (yet organic) quality of the sculpted bodice. The duality of the textures of hard and soft is so visually tactile and alluring - I can only imagine what it would feel like to wear this - very regal and transformative!!

Thank you, it was an incredible project to work on! My performer and model did indeed seem to feel regal and special - but most of all weighed down, I guess - its a heavy load of materials to pull around =)

A lovely piece of work the headpiece and the gold leaf at the waist is particularly well done, it has a wonderful elven look to it.
