Movie Inspirations

I love working with people to bring to life the costume they fell in love with on the big screen. I am well known for my recreations of Satine's costumes in 'Moulin Rouge' as well as many others. My eye for details and refusal to settle for anything but ‘looks just like it’ truly sets my creations apart from others.

 

'Just Breathe' Ballgown from Ever After

The gown is extremly intricate with antique laces and bullion detailing. Instead of bullion I used bugle beads and flowered rhinestones for trimming. Made from sparkling metallic silver crinkle silk and has an undergown of soft silk charmeuse. Hundreds and hundreds of beads and rhinestones have been hand sewn on. I changed the wings for smaller more natural looking ones as I wore this gown originally to a 600 person indoor event.

Pink Diamonds from 'Moulin Rouge'

The fringe at the bottom of the bodice is hand beaded fringe in both gold and silver twisted bugle beads just like the movie. Hundreds of Swarovski rhinestones cover the pink satin with hand dyed fishnet on the steel boned corset bodice.

This is one of the most expensive Moulin Rouge costumes to try and replicate due to the feather boas. They are ostritch feathers and cost $2500 alone in 2005!

Frodo from LotR

 

Elizabeth Swan from 'PotC'

The gown is created from gorgeous gold brocade which has a pattern very similar to the movie gown. The opening at the front is edged in the very same bow trim as used in the movie! Delicate net lace peeks out from the inside of the sleeves which have been gathered to the crook of your elbow and the same net lace also decorates the neckline and top of the stomacher. The gown opens at the front with hook and eyes and attaches along both sides of the stomacher. Plain ivory brocade stomacher. The stomacher is strongly boned with flat steel and is made from the same ivory brocade as the underskirt. The underskirt is very full and pleated into the waistband and closes at the side.

'Oriental gown from Moulin Rouge'

The costume consists of a skirt and jacket as well as the vintage hat! The entire costume is made from hand dyed red with black flocking silk dupioni with an overlayer of black chiffon to make it look like the pattern in the movie. Vintage black beaded jet trim edges the entire jacket along with the hem of the skirt. More jet trim was added to the real vintage hat to mimic the movie.

'Grey Walking gown from Moulin Rouge'

Satine wears this when she tells Christian she doesn't love him. The costume consists of a flared mermaid skirt; a black velvet over bodice and long sleeve bolero. The skirt is mermaid shaped with black gores inserted in the flares at the hem; they appear and disappear when walking. The black velveteen overbodice buttons up the front an is lightly boned (you will need to wear a actual corset under this). The bolero has long sleeves that flare at the cuff and have pouffed sleeves with a screen accurate 'v' of piping and a stand up black velveteen collar. Also included is the vintage hat with rhinestone brooch and netting. It even has a bow in the back!
