INARA SERRA - Serenity

Costume components: Red dress, white floral shawl, cork wedge sandals, black wig, assorted jewelry

Total cost: $70

The dress pattern is Newlook 6557, modified for a full length skirt. I used a red brocade with gold patterns, though I wish I had found a lighter weight.

The shawl is a simple triangle. I usually tack it in place with safety pins so I don't have to worry about it when I'm walking around a con. I found a floral pattern, but I didn't think the reds were red enough, so I painted over them with red paint. I attached crochet thread along the border. Each thread is 34" long (so hangs 17" when threaded through). They are attached at one inch intervals, then knotted with the neighboring thread one inch below the shawl hem.

Usually I'll wear this dress with a long black wig, but in this photo-shoot, I simply wore my hair up.
