Ariel's Pink Ball Gown by Lillyxandra Ariel's Pink Ball Gown by Lillyxandra
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).

Hello, you won't like this, I have the same problem with my own creations and while looking if they stole me something else, I saw your work: www.aliexpress.com/store/produ…
A shop in China is reproducing our work and use our pics to sell them... -_- Sorry

I really hate that pink dress. This, on the other hand, is gorgeous. I love all the silver instead of white, and the trim on the bottom, the sort of diamond shaped trim? Well, this is great. I love it.
