I have decided that I will make this dress, but I was hoping to find a full body screenshot of her somewhere. I've only been able to find a few of her waist-up.

Can anyone help?

Good luck...I too was entranced by that gorgeous dress. It looks like it was inspired by (or taken directly from) Indian formalwear...with all that embroidery and beading. It'll take awhile...^_^

so far the only screen shots that i've found are of her making her "entrance" in the steam train.

I'm not positive...but I think there is a clip from the "teaser" movie trailer that shows a little more of the dress. Have you had any luck finding a choker like the one Amelia is wearing?

And also, I went to eBay and looked around.. there many similiar styled Chokers... (But none looks exactly like the one that Amelia has)

*sigh*

I saw a bunch of black vinyl jump suits availble at Halloween Stores... And the Trinity vinyl coat... would work too.

Hmmm.... I think I know how to make a choker like Amelia's, if I just could get my hands on the material I need. It's a pretty hard clay-like material, I used it for a school project were we designed jewelry. I have to ask my teacher.

If I get some of that material, and many screenshots of the choker, I'll try to make it. ;) (is gonna need alot of "golden" paint too)

ha.. i plan on doing this dress as well. i think however i will use a different color, sinc ei want to use sari fabric as the base, with a silver border and it's hard to find white or grey silk with the silver border. i may use a red, or a blue maybe.

the the bottom of the dress it straight, with a train in the back slightly, and where the pattern creates a center seam, it slips at around the knees revealing a gathered underlayer..

alright. so i went out and bought the damn DVD. didn't shop around so i ended up spending $30 on it at HMV.

i have screenshots of both scenes that she's in. In total Amelia is in this film for a less than 2 minutes. but DAMN her dress is gorgeous. I have all my fabrics and supplies ready to go. I just need to figure out the schematics of the corset and the dress and i'll get started soon.

This is going to be my baby :)

I think you're talking about Precious Metal Clay (PMC) (http://www.silver-clay.com/). It looks interesting for smaller pieces but not something as big as Amelia's necklace. All of the projects on their site are beads, brooches and other small projects.

There's also the fact that the clay shrinks as the "clay" medium burns off in the kiln to leave the silver behind.

I'm having mine custom cast out of sterling silver by an artisan I know. Expensive ($$$!) but it will be worth it. There's nothing to duplicate metal except metal itself.

there are no pics of the back of her head. trust me - i've screenshotted it to death

however - she does have 2 distinct part lines in her hair that form a V.

well this is how far i have gotten on my amelia gown, i choose a brighter color to show off the detailing better, plus i love the color anyways. i have yet to make the underskirt, i will beat the gown then line it before i do the underskirt. Under the bodice is a fully boned heavy duty corset that zips in the front (no back lacings) this gives the right shape and also sucks out 3 inchs from the waist, the underskirt will attach to the corset, and the main gown will only be attached from the top and it will have it's own invisible zipper in the front. i choose to make the back fuller with 8 sewn down pleats that go from the top and the hips then go loose allowing for a demi train.

what does everyone think?
like the color change?

Hi! I just found this site and was wondering if anyone can direct me to some great photos of Amelia's gown so that I can have it replicated.

Thanks!

Hi Guys!

This is my first time to post! So here goes...


I really like Amelia's dress but have no sewing skills whatsoever!! Where would I go/or to whom would I go to in order to have them create a replica? How much would it cost to have a dress like that custom made? I'm guessing quite a bit? Any ideas?

Thanx!

Shameless Plug, the company I design contacts for 9mmsfx.com did the contacts for the movie. I love the contacts in it, but I must say that dress is like O.O!!!!!! and her makeup will be gorgeous too (I am really into makeup)

I finished off my Amelia dress after shoving it in the closet for 9 months.

I gutted up the corset and took out at least 4 inches of fabric so that it could lace up tighter. I added a lot of beading to it, but it was all worth it for the reactions that I got from people. People would just stop and stare (partly from the beadwork, and partly because the corset had an "emphazing" effect on my "upper half" :thumbsup:

I've uploaded a few more photos into my cosplay.com gallery.

Awesome! You look stunning!
How did you do the necklace? I hope you post a close-up picture of your bead work!

I didn't make the necklace. My friend who is a silversmith made it for me. To use her words - it is an organic freeform construction, lol. The piece is sterling silver wire of different thicknesses that she hammered and texturized.

I've posted another photo HERE (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=310051) where the beadwork is more visible :thumbsup:

Hello,

Obviously,I am new to this forum,but I received an email from someone wanting pictures of Amelia's gown. Apparently to make a wedding dress. I recently purchased the hero gown.If anybody has questions about it let me know. It is a fantastic work of art,really nice.Bear in mind I am not a costume designer or for that matter a seamstress,but I do collect screen used movie memorabilia.
