An upclose shot of the embroidery and trim. The embroidery was done on my machine, using a purchased design that was modified, duplicated, and size-adjusted to fit on both the collar and the cuffs. The overall goal was to give the look of the era's fantastic metallic bullion work without taking ten years to do it by hand. Don't get me wrong, it still took a while, because I had to work out stabilizer, tension, thread, and the design itself, but still MUCH faster than the methods of the old days.
The gold trim was found at JoAnns. I really thought it looked neat, so I ended up buying them out of what they had at three different stores so I would have enough!

Thank you! I really tried to do what I could with it. Oscar has so many opportunities to exploit detailing XD

That is seriously gorgeous. Such detail and it looks so awesomely real and true to the era.

It was a goal for the costume overall to have as much historical feel as I could get without stressing over actual historical -accuracy-, since Oscar's design has a lot of not-period aspects to it. So hearing this makes me feel I did what I hoped to do. Thank you
