Esther is by far one of my favourite characters =)

I've been so happy to start this costume.
The materials used are:

*4m of white duchess satin
*3m of grenat taffetas
*chiffon for the hair's roses
*Windsor fur (1/2m)
*lining (2m for bustier + fur)
*fabric painting for the roses'details
*overall, there is >3000 beads & sequins on the costume, around 800 were hand sewed on the bustier
*10m of white dentelle on the 'skirt' part
*1/2m of embroideries for the collar + 1/2m of swarovski's embroidered organza

I made the crown of remnants + foam (creamousse) + lame fabric + added jewels

The pearl jewels are handmade as well, the dog-style (haha) necklace has been put together with some pieces of iron thread.

The red jewels are made from the basis of golden indian jewels + glued gems, that was a pretty easy part and I was lucky to find the necessary material =)

So far, I'm satisfied with the result, but not so proud of it as the result could definitely have been better if I had had less articles to write and more time to spend on my sewing =)
My biggest regret is that part of my luggages were lost by the plane company, including the collar that I had to attempt to re-make in 3days + the jewels + part of the fabric. Thus I had to make some elements quite quickly, and didn't have much time to work on a huge puffy petticoat ;-(

I hope I'll have the will to work on this costume again <3

More details later, I hope I'll finally have some time off :p

Cheers xxxxxx
