The original, original idea was my mom's. We wear at the summer clearance sale for a large fabric store, and she said, "This is nice... it would be a nice Marie Antoinette-style dress..." (not like I aim to be like MA... however I wrote an essay for school on her life which I'll be posting some day...) Anyways, then the wheels of my mind started turning...
This is my source of inspiration:
a publicity shot for "Marie-Antoinette" with Kirsten Dunst. (I haven't seen it, so I can't say I recommend it.)
Basically the only elements I'll be keeping are the beading, the black tulle mask, and the pouf hairstyle.
My other inspiration:
Elisabeth Swan's Gold gown from Pirates of the Caribbean....And her wedding gown. The beading is awesome. (NOTE: I haven't seen PotC either...)
Well, have a lovely day :)
