That's old, but since I've just joined an ancient fashion supporters club here in DA, I wanted to contribute with something. I LOVE History of fashion, specially 18th. Century style. so I enjoyed drawing the hair and details. That's a pencil sketch. I didn't took any reference for hair nor outfit.
First don´t ask, just accept for my follow words...XDD
Ye on the pic is Emily and yes the time - 1779 and i also know that these kind of dress actually NOT existed in these time-line, BUT Emi is from the "future" in that way, so she know what happened back in days and which fashion when arrived.... And after the birth of her sweet Thérèse Charlotte its much better to wear simply dresses So she let made this dress much earlier as MA. But don´t worry it will still be the idea for all in Versailles of the L´Autricheinne... before she cries XD
And this one was a special order of the king for his private pleasures
And yes i know her hair looks strange as normally...:S But well....thats the way it is X°°D Ne demandez pas adettez-le
Your Queen of France
Ps: So i wish you all my best i´m already away for now...
Las últimas décadas del s.XVIII fueron de gran esplendor para los sombreros femeninos. Se estilaban grandes, para no ser menos que los peinados. He de reconocer que he prestado más atención a la cara y la mirada de la dama que a los detalles del vestuario, por eso está todo tan abocetado. No he usado referencias. ***
Last decades of 18th. Century were splendorous in hair fashion and female hat design. Hats used to be big, so they didn't rivaled the complicated hairstyles. I've to confess that I neglected a lot the details and everything is rather sketchy. I enjoyed drawing the lady's face and gaze . I didn't use any reference.
Well I haven't posted anything for ages, so I thought I would try and do something to put up here. I visited Chatsworth a few days ago and have pretty much been bingeing on anything 18th century related ever since!
It was supposed to be Marie Antoinette, but it doesn't look much like her, and the dress is actually a more english styled one. I used a couple of portraits for reference, and trusty old Taschen Fashion for some dress ideas, but as usual, my imagination didn't need all that much help thinking up an outfit for her.
Mixed media because I pretty much used anything I could be bother to unpack from my uni boxes; Copic Marker, pencil crayon, gouache, ink and Photoshop.
ETA: Decided to spruce this up a bit with a background and slightly different colour scheme. The pattern used in the background is part of the pattern set <a href="[link]>Wiedemann Patterns by ~Zebii. Check them out, because they are beautiful.
ETA2: I am hopefully going to make this costume for a photoshoot to put in my professional portfolio. The fabric is a different pattern from this design, but similar colours, and the trim will be the same!
