SO i picked this up on ebay for a song...

im looking to embellish it a bit. since i cant leave things well enough alone.

its actually brownish not blackish. i was looking for ideas on wigs..curly? red? straight black?

also perhaps a hat? a tiny tophat embellished with feathers? Ill have my daughter make a drapey cape once i see the colors in person.



what do you think??

Great find, it's beautiful, LadyAlthea. I think a long curly black wig with no bangs, kind of like the old west women had when let their hair down. I'd make sure I got some lace gloves, a rather large black (or maybe red) beaded necklace and beaded drawstring purse.

thanks! and like that style wig idea too!

It arrived today! definitely different than i imagined but still very nice. quality work. the material is actually a chocolate satin with yellow flower embroidery. the waist cincher needs a little help though. im thinking of covering it in velvet.

im going to try it on later and take a pick or two.

Oh, it definitely screams curly hair to me too... love that it is brown and not black... I love black for sure, but on that dress, it would seem too... new? Brownish is the perfect color for it.... as for the hat, my first thought was yes as well, but the more I think about it, I don't know that you would want to cover that wig up... maybe some kind of hair band or something that had the feather sticking out of it? I do agree a feather or some other kind of adornment would fit well, but I just don't know that I would want to cover up too much of the hair.

I would also want a simple choker necklace... that would be wonderful.

If you also want a headpice you could do something like what the girl did who played my vampire bride or whatever. I think it was justa headband with a feather atached to the side and a black rose or something like that.

oh fantastic links!!!!!!

im checking them out now and i see a few i really like! the thing i like about this dress is that it will transfer well with just a few different assecories.

its got that deadwood western flair, it could be a victorian with a little chest coverage, and its labled as the sweeny todd mrs something dress. what the heck is her name. GAH!
