Wedding Dresses

in the past few weeks i've gotten 2 wedding dresses to use for my fright fest character, Adelaide Strigoi, the first one is going to be the "wedding dress" that my character is killed in, i probably wont make any changes to this dress because its too pretty to mess up. It was also a steal at only 40$







the second wedding dress will be the dress i was buried in and also turned into a vampire in. it was also a steal at 60$. I'm cutting off the sleeves and making it a strap top, the sleeves will be used as arm warmers. since the back is 1/2in to small to fully button, i will turn it into a corset back with sheer black ribbon to lace it. for the bottom half i am going to add black and pale blue tulle to the white tulle to give it an eire look and the front of the dress the tulle will be shredded to show some leg. in the train i will cut the black and blue tulle into scroll designs to add a ghostly effect. then i will run around outside to dirty up the bottom of the dress. I kind of want to stain the bottom of the dress black and have it fade it up to grey but i dont know. also i want to add something to the top front to make it less bridal, maybe i can underlay strips of blue and black tulle under the lace.

any thoughts?

They are both pretty dresses, but with the lace/tulle dress it gives you more options to customise. I was looking at the sunday papers and there was a feature on chanel haute couture and there was a dress with lots of beaded lace, tank style top and armlets , and a high/low hem (couldn't download the pics, copyright!)
I've tried dye on dresses before and had terrible results, what about fabric paint it would give you more control over the colours. Try adding more beads/colours to get away from the bridal look, and thinking of a dress thats been entombed what about some discret bugs.

I bought these 2 dresses earlier this year hoping to use one as my halloween costume, twhen they arrived they still had the store tags with prices ( 1200€ each) and were in immaculate condition so i sent them to a shop in paris to be sold! One dress was 35$ and the other 50$, the designer is Novissima from Madrid and the quality of the fabric is excellent, i think there is on for sale on ebay for around 40$ but they run small in the sizing!
