I also recommend youtuber petrilude for tutes on makeup (coverage and contouring), and covering your brows. Would be great to be able to do the Scarlett arched brow~
There are also human hair brows that would be good once your own brows are shaved or concealed.
If you have any other questions about the prayer gown, please ask. I have studied the gowns for 15 years and am extremely detail conscious. While the prayer gown was not one of my "must haves" from the film, I do have a nice version. It is not completely screen accurate but it also only cost about $150, lol!
Yes, I've actually been in touch with her so I could find out what her height was (I love the proportions that she had for her gown). Thank you for the references!

Also, pleased to make your aquaintance. I recognized your gown from photos I've seen at scarlettonline.com.
