puzzlecunt said: I think you would make an excellent Marie Antoinette! Sofia Coppola style, crapness of the movie aside the costumes were very very nice. Also maybe the posture collar outfit from The Cell!

There are many The Cell costumes I’d love to make. The molded leather armour is one the white feathered.

Some of the MA costumes are close copies of extant items (I highly recommend the Kyoto Costume Institute/Taschen co publication of Fashion for anyone interested in costume from movies. Some of the photos are available in older books (Revolution in Fashion for e.g.) but it is serious eye candy and there are a lot of aha! moments when looking through. Actually add Patterns of Fashion and the Harper’s Bazaar reprint to that list as well. And Hunnisett.

Anyway.. panniers! And then the fab 1780s big hair.
