Kaiser Franz Joseph - Takarazuka by giusynuno Kaiser Franz Joseph - Takarazuka by giusynuno
I made this replica of Kaiser Franz Joseph's grand uniform from the musical "Elisabeth" made by Takarazuka in 2007 for my friend Elena as part of my Elisabeth group for the event NiMi in Florence :D
I really like how this dress turned out even if I made it in only two days^^
The picture looks a bit blue but actually both the jacket and the mantle are pitch black with bordeaux and gold details :D

Original design: Arimura (Takarazuka 2007)
Original design photo: www.theaterguide.co.jp/theater…
Dress making: me XD
Photo&edit: me XD

would definitely don this outfit.  A little rough with the insignia on the cape, but definitely cool.  Ever thought of using a heat press?

Thank you so much!!!:tighthug: The insigna is a replica of the original, I didn't really like it but my friend wanted it nevertheless XD

I LOVE heat presses but unfortunately I don't own one :(

i think if you go to a minute men press or some other print shop and they would have something like it.  But for what you do i think you can get a smaller model for 3-400 dollars.  It has been a while since I checked.  Again, great job.

that's really lovely! Its funny though how in the 2004 Phantom movie Raoul wears something like this in Masquerade and Christine wears Elisabeth's white dress during Think of Me.I wonder if Joel Shumacher was a fan of that musical

They did use a lot of Elisabeth dresses in that movie, didn't they!!! XD I was impressed when I forst saw it XD Actually, my friend chose this one outfit so maybe one day she'll be able to lend it to another friend of us who wants to be Raul XD
I always wondered about this...POTO musical productions were gorgeous enough to give inspiration for the movie's costumes, I think that yes, maybe Shumacher did like Elisabeth's ones better XD

Very nicely done, though I agree it looks blue. But lest on stage it looks right which is what counts in the end.

It looks blue, doesn't it? >____<;;; I hate my camera's colour settings =_=;; it does look black in person, at least...XD
We tried it on stage and it looks black, too...but still I'm so angry that I can't take a decent picture of it XD

Its the lighting of the sun. It shows the base dye of whatever was used to colour the cloth. And since the base colour for most black fabric is a blue tint,(that's why some black fades to blue after years in the sun) Take the photos on stage. That way you can control the lighting.

Other than wildlfe and outdoor photography; photography is sometimes done best in a controlled environment where you can pick everything down to the temp of the room. lol Don't worry, I say if you really are that picky (I know I would be) just the next time you go the the theater take everything you need and re-shoot all the garments from that collection.

Also try a different angle, right now the fabric is acting like a light bounce for the camera. Thus not helping your blue problem.

The blue door also doesn't help, if you want to shoot "product" photography. Which in a nutshell is what you are trying to do, use a white (or cream) background. It helps add focus and again helps with your control over the image itself. Though can act again as a light bounce so take that into account when shooting.

I hope I have given you some information that will help you. If you where near me I would come and help you but your not.

But I still say you do wonderful costume work, even if you and your camera have problems working together. ;)

Be positive, taking good photos is a lot work and practice. Just like sewing. Its art and all art takes time to master.

PS: I tried to fix it in photoshop for you and I couldn't do it the colours aren't there for me to work with. :(

Waaaaaaaaaaaah thank you so much for all your advices :hug:
I never really thought of the base dye problem, even if I did study colour bases XXXDDD
My problem is that I don't really have space in the house to take decent pictures, so I use my door frame as base^^; but next time I'll try to put a white sheet behind the mannequin :D I'll try to ask permission to use some interiors for the photos too, but I don't know if I'll have any luck XD
You're so very kind to give me all these advices, I don't have any knowledge on photography other than "I like this - I don't like this"^^ I really want to study a bit of it, I hope to be able to make some time for it :D

Well, I have taken more photo classes than healthy so if you want information I am your girl. But honestly most people wont have a problem letting you take pictures. Offer them location photo credit if they have a problem.

It actually took 2 days, because my friend decided like...at the last moment to be part of the group XD you don't really want to see the inside, it's an horrible mess(^^;;;) I didn't have to modify the pattern because I had already made something similar for another friend, so it was just cutting and assembling :)
Sewing the details was hard though, because it took most of the time...I almost didn't sleep at all one of the two days XD
