from Coppola's Dracula. The costumes for the movie were designed by Eiko Ishioka, and are gorgeous.
My to-do list is pretty intense considering I have 1.5 months:
1. New corset with bust and hip gussets, to hopefully give me more of a later bustle shape.
2. New petticoat bustle, to support the skirts better than my lobster tail bustle.
3. Hundreds of kanzashi flower petals.
4. The actual dress.
Guess I'd better get to work!
