Follow my costuming & make-up on Facebook - [link] This Pink Ball Gown is for Traci Hines "Part of Your World" Music Video. [link]. For the pink gown Traci stressed that she wanted it to look more like a period gown, so I pulled from all my favorite era’s of fashion. I designed the corset from the Edwardian era, with a pigeon chest and a small waist. The sleeves are slash and puff sleeves from the Renaissance and Tudor period. The skirt is more of the Rococo era with hip panniers and a bustled back. Traci chose her favorite fabric and trims to make it all happen! I wanted to make sure that this costume didn’t look like a “cosplay” costume. If you remember the scene where she gets the gown, she did not have someone make it for her, they most likely had it in one of the royal closets so she could borrow it. "TracPerhaps it was one of Eric’s Mother’s dresses? Instead of using pure whites, I used antique colors like champagne to replace the whites. Making the dress was truly magical! It came together in two days! I had the help of Katie Mitchell dying trims, finishing hems, and cutting fabric for me. Traci was on details, sewing pearls and gluing rhinestones. Even our director Raiya was making trips to the fabric district to pick up notions to finish the gown! We were like the little mice in Cinderella, working to make a princess gown! After it came together we were all relieved to see that it had turned out beautifully. (we were shooting it the next day). To read more about this project, read my blog here - [link]
Disney Princess Jasmine Costume for Traci Hines (www.tracihines.com) . Keeping it more realistic using fabrics like silk and lace encrusted with crystals and gems like a real princess would wear! The silk has a slight gradient to a darker teal at the bottom. Flowery lace vine grow up from the bottom of the pant leg. Jasmine has a bit of sensuality to her and I wanted to enhance that by adding a slit that lace up at the sides of the hips. I think it bring attention to a beautiful part of the body that usually is not revealed added to her exoticness.

OMG! you guys are the best!!! Thank you so much for the DD!!!!
Follow my costuming & make-up on Facebook - www.facebook.com/FireflyPath My friend commissioned this gown as a birthday gift for his fiancé (who is also my friend Raiya Corsiglia - Director)! I'm pretty sure this is the most fabric Firefly Path as ever used in a costume, over 50 yards of fabric! When designing this costume I wanted to make a realistic version of the Disney Belle. I used gold fabrics and yellow as an accent color. The motif of roses are repeated throughout the gown in the center of the corset with rose patten brocade to the rose clusters at the edge of the overskirt. When I think of Disney's Belle Gown there are two details that first come to mind.. the ruched skirt and her sleeve swags. I put a twist on these two iconic elements by making a hi-low ruched skirt over a full skirt and made her single swag sleeve into a double swag with a pendent in the middle. <3

This is now the third time entrepreneur Doe Deer of Lime Crime Cosmetics [link] and I have collaborated! I love working with someone who has such a clear vision of the fantasy she wants to bring to life! I was visiting Lime Crime headquarters, having my hair died mermaid colors by Cassie Wanda Marshall (who does the amazing hair styling on Lime Crime Shoots), when Doe told me of all her fantasies about the October pallet she had planned . She was sharing her visions of a witchy environment with candles and a spell book, dark and gloomy but with a twist of her sweet Lime Crime aesthetic. Of course I had to offer my help!
Later, she sent me sketches of a cute Alchemist girl with a velvet green short dress, then we ventured to the fabric district to find the perfect fabric and notions. Songstress and model Lola Blanc [link] came for a fitting, and shortly thereafter they had the shoot! I absolutely love the set they made, I wanted to take it all home with me! On top of having a beautiful photoshoot, director Raiya Corsiglia [link] shot a music video with Lola singing a cover of “Love Potion #9″! [link]
If you are a make-up lover like me, you can buy the eye pallet and lipsticks [link]

Follow Firefly Path costuming & make-up on Facebook - [link] Jes of Firefly Path - "This gown was created for one of my friends who had wanted Sarah's dress from Labyrinth since she was a little girl, and wanted to have the perfect gown to wear to the The Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Balll this summer. While honoring the beautiful shape and the color scheme (white dress with yellow detailing in the center of the corset) of the original dress, I modernized the look a bit by using heavier fabrics like satin, brocade, crushed satin, and embroidered lace, and by making the puffed sleeves slightly smaller. This dress was an excited project for me, not only because I made a dream come true for a dear friend, but because it was my very first commission!"
This fairy gown was inspired by the vibrant fuchsia 'Emma Louise' flower ([link]). I wanted the overall look of the gown to resemble a upside down flower. The top being the sepal holding the petals that fall below. I made an asymmetrical underbust corset that laces up on each side under the arms. The silk ombre petals are decorated with varying size sequins and beads. It also lights up! I embedding LEDs in the wings to give it that "faerie glow" at night.
