Anyway, with we were planning on making a duo and since his dress was ready for last week's Sigurtà cosplay event I did my best to finish this version of Sister Evelyn in time
I had the bust ready since some time before but I lacked the skirt...which in the end turned out awfull since I couldn't buy enough and the dye didn't really take hold ==;; I'll make it again as soon as I have time, but for now I'm sort of happy with the result especially because I love the bust so much XD
So, the making of this dress took about two weeks mostly for the painting XD the lace I bought was optical white, while the original was liliac-violet, in different shades depending on the position. So, after assembling the bust I hand painted it with acrylic colours, starting with a very water-added acrylic so to make the pale liliac, then added a second hand of less water-added one to the contourns and veins of the flowers, and two final layers of stright acrylic to the contourns only as they were the brighter ones on the original. I assembled this lace layer on a skin-colored coutil base that sported four steel bones to keep the shape
I couldn't catch sight of the back from the movie so I decided to add a thick violet ribbon as a slight accent
The original bust was decorated with fabric flowers of the same fabric but, frankly speaking, I didn't want to buy more fabric than strictly necessary (it was 20€/mt...), so I painted the 29 flowers that I could form from the remains of the bust and then added some fabric ones I found in a shop that sells party decorations XD the color was so similar!! I'm happy with the result
The flowers are darker on the inside and white on the contourn, and it took quite some pain to avoid staining it =_=; but it was...sort of fun? An interesting experience nevertheless XXXDD
The original skirt has a slit on the front from where the gatherning at the hips starts, but I was a bit tight on budget so I went for a straight half circle loosely gathered on the hips. The dye didn't really take hold to the upper part is only a veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery light shade of liliac, I really, REALLY need to make it better XD
I have two other of Sister Evelyn's dresses on the queue, but they are SO complicated that I have no idea when I'll get around to make them...even if I really want to XD

Complimenti! Non solo è bello di suo, così, a rimirarlo senza sapere la fonte d'ispirazione... ma quando vedo da dove ti sei ispirata è ancora più bello sei stata eccezionale! Complimenti! Adoro il lavoro di pittura a gradi che hai fatto!
Dipingerlo è stata una tragedia perchè l'originale ha tutte sfumature di lilla diverse....MALEDETTO XD per cui passate su passate fino ad arrivare ad un risultato soddisfacente...e fortuna che non stinge!!!! XD ha preso anche acqua e non mi sono colorata di lilla per fortuna XXXX°°°°°°DDDD
IS SO BEAUTIFUL! Oh my... this reminds me of "Freeform crochet". It's so lovely!!
painting fabric sounds difficult! You did such a great job
THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!! It does look like freeform crochet actually XD I wish I had the knowledge to make it and not just using already existing fabric to make it look like it XD
Painting is just VERY long (and boring in my case)...and this corset needed grading on the flowers so I had to make four/five different passages to make the right ones ==;;
I'm so glad you like it
Guarda il film č visivamente molto bello, la trama personalmente mi ha presa il giusto per vederlo una volta ma mi annoia un po' rivederlo...XD
In assoluto č un film molto bello, perņ una volta che hai perso la suspence del non sapere come evolve č un po'...dull secondo me XD
Te lo consiglio!! Anche solo per le locations e i costumi, FAVOLOSI!!!
Wiiiiiiiiiiiiii sono contenta che ti sia piaciuto!!!!!
Ti dirņ anche io all'inizio ero un po' scettica sulla trama, ma alla fine mi č piaciuto tantissimo! Poi appunto la fotografia č incredibile e anche solo i costumi valgono quanto tutto il film
