Marguerite ballgown- Takarazuka Scarlet Pimpernel by giusynuno Marguerite ballgown- Takarazuka Scarlet Pimpernel by giusynuno
*EDIT 15-3-2012: finally got around to rendeer the colours more similar to the real-life one! I can't believe how long it took me to learn how to use Photoshop's tools XD*

This is by far the dress I most loved to make <3
It comes from Takarazuka's musical "The Scarlet Pimpernel", 2010 tsukigumi production, and is Marguerite's ballgown for the end of the first act ("nazotoki no game").
It's a two-piece+cage+crinoline construction made with interior taffetà (cheap and beautiful xD) :D
Original dress can be seen here [link]

Wonderful gown--so much interest in the details. Very lovely.
Also, the photo is nice. Love the pop of pink against the blue. And the white really stands out more. Also love the perspective. You got a lot out of a mannequin shot. :D

This is such a beautiful dress! I love the way you did the sleeves the most. That looks absolutely stunning!

Is it heavy? It looks like it's surprisingly light! Awesome work :D

Thank you so much!!!! :hug: it took a life to make the sleeves so I'm really glad you like them :D

It's rather lightweight :D The fabric is interior design taffeta which is even too light, the only heavy part is the brooch on the stomacher xD I had to put a couple of bones into the bodice to keep it straight XD

WOW that's quite amazing! It must have cost a lot, too?? Taffeta is so soft and airy! Nice choice in fabric :)

:icongiusynuno:
giusynuno Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Well, it costed more than the fabric I usually use, 17€/mt, but if you think that it's tall 3,4mt it doesn't really cost that much :) with a couple of meters or less you're done ;)
I really like the effect of taffetà, I'd love to use it more but I have to find a place where they have it cheaper XD

Out of all your work, which is undoubtedly beautiful, I believe this should've been the one that received the DD.

Pink isn't my color, and regularly vomit at the sight of it, but this is profoundly beautiful that for one speckle of a second, I wanted to wear it. The awe is enduring, though.

Fantastic job! :iconlovelaplz:

To speak frankly, I was a bit surprised by the dd too xD

I was never a fan of pink (or any light colour by the way...) but I've found out that it works well with period clothes^^ At first I wanted to make this in red but I'm glad I went for the original pink in the end :D
