So, this year is a year of old costumes photoshoots (still have million to be shooted) and finally I have some nice pictures of Princess Anastasia in opera dress, it's my favourite one in the movie ^^ I really love shiny fabric. And I also remade the veil. Now I used non glitter soft dark-blue tulle and covered it with Krylon Glitter Spray. You'll see it better on the next pictures. And it's my first real smiling picture, yay! x) Actually I have problems with smiling pictures, it must be of a very right angle to look good )

Thanks a lot to Predator, Hideki and Saoko for the help during the shooting!
It's a winter outdoor shot. Who said there's lot of snow in Russia >< Well yeah, this year we lack of snow
I bought this beautiful glittering fabric long ago and I also had the wig (though for another character), that fits Anastasia well. So I finally made her opera dress for the promotional event, held in the fabric center of our city.
You can also watch the promotional video that we made HERE [link]
I've made it in 4 days so there's some details I need to improve. But in general costume is ready I know her dress was not glittering in the movie, but I felt in love with this fabric, when first saw it and I think it looks good in result. Though I'm not satisfied with the veil part, I hope to remade it.
This dress has a long story. It was first made in 2008...
...and then remade in 2012. I added second skirt and completely remade the corset part. Also added raffs on my hands.
And this year I finished some small details and brought it to Denmark, Copenhagen to have a chance of shooting it there. Thanks a lot to Morten and Julia for the invitation to J-Popcon and their company!
I've just returned from my time in Paris for the European Cosplay Gathering at Japan Expo. While in Paris, I just had to bring Anya to the Opera Garnier. I'm so in love with the photos from there and it was such a dream come true to wear her in that location! I can basically die happy now.
