This was so so hard to make. I spent all of four months on this, just sewing with every spare second I had and making props on the weekend.
Dress: hand dyed the red on the under side of the skirts and sleeves. Much of it is hand-sewn, like the gold details. Lots and lots of bias tape.
Sword: Cardboard, celluclay, sculpy for the roses
Wings: Turkey feathers, chicken wire, pvc pipes
Head cage: Wig head (painted), wig; celluclay for the cage and wire covered in painted masking tape for the bars.
All the red jewels, including the one in my hair, were made from Sculpy.
