I watched closely for this costume last night because if you’ve followed me long enough you’ll know I have an addiction to beetlewing embroidery.
Did anyone actually see her wear this one?
The movie was AMAZING. I don’t even like K. Stewart and I thought she was fantastic! If Atwood doesn’t pick up awards for costumes something is wrong in Hollywood!
I think I’ll start back in the very beginning. When I first saw the images of the costumes from Snow White and the Huntsman I thought to myself five quid says I know the man who did the millinery work.
Fast forward to our millinery class today! If I had actually bet against another person I would have won! We are currently working on a beaded project, I don’t think we are allowed to discuss the finer points until it actually happens) and I’ve taken a complete twist in the way I am doing mine. Without giving to much away, I want it to be beautiful but when you get up close it’s made of things that you would normally consider ugly (and some of you may even have a deadly fear of the little beasties).
I started to explain what I was working towards and to my complete surprise Sean told me that he had the same idea when creating Charlize Theron’s headdresses and crowns worn by the Evil Queen. We talked a bit more about the costumes from the movie but I won’t spoil it for you!
I will however share something I found to be amazing. Apparently it took him FIVE weeks to attach all the feather to Charlize’s cape worn in the photo above!
