Instead of going with the yellow coloring that is traditionally done in the theme parks as well as the movie I decided I wanted to go with more of a gold tone. I also don’t look good in yellow. I based the design off of a mixture of her actual movie dress with a few stage dresses.
The dress is made from a mixture of satins, brocades, and several different sheer materials. The gloves are actually a glittery cheer gold spandex, which I think compliments the outfit more than doing a solid glove. As an added bonus I added lights throughout her bodice and part of her skirt!
