need some help with a Madonna cosplay!!!

hello everyone. I'm obsessed with Louis XIV time outfits and I really want to make the dress that Madonna used in the vma's for her Vogue performance. I need some help with some images 'cause I don't have the video ¬_¬ If you have any I would appreciate that very much!!!!!
Oh, one other thing, if you have any idea of making the thing that those dresses use under the skirt I would be very thankful.

You can always go through your local library to look up Louis XIV. They have tons of historical costuming books with wonderful reference pictures.

Are you talking about panniers? There are plenty of historical pattern companies that sell patterns for those - and for the robe a la francaise/a l'anglaise (don't recall which type is used in the video) as well. My favorite for undergarments - you'll need panniers and a Georgian period corset, at least - is The Mantua-Maker, but there are many others. There's an excellent review of historical patterns at www.gbacg.org .

its a robe ala francaise...mantua maker's Robe is 100% accurate to an earlier style as it is BASED off the 1745 gown in the Victoria & Albert Museum...But Madonna's is a later style when the bodice was cut seaperatly from the skirt...(circa 1770) Jpryan's pattern is very clean cut and easy to understand (the pet en l'air pattern makes a full francaise gown when lengthened) the Mantua Maker gown is also meant for a full court hoop...whereas Madonna is wearing a half hoop/pocket hoops(panniers) (in the performance she pulls up her petticoat and you can see her undergarments)

I wanna do Madonna too. I'd like to do her material girl dress (maybe coz I'm obsessed with Marilyn Monroe), and I really love her Vouge video too, some really nice suits. Oh, and some of her Hollywood video outfits
