Embroidery Fit for a Queen

I purchased the fabric for the Red Invasion gown and started playing with the embroidery. Take a look...






The color of the actual fabric is a little less pink red. The flash did funny stuff to it. The stabilizer is still on the embroidery motif. Other than that, pretty good. Metallic thread is a b*?@h to work with. It breaks ALLLLLL of the time.

I have been awfully lazy about pictures....

I made the Light Blue Tatooine outfit for a wonderful gal to wear to Comic*con this year. She was kind enough to send me pictures.



Doesn't she look GREAT!


Thank You so much Judy!

Welcome!

Thanks for visiting my Blog. I have been keeping a blog of all the costumes I make on

It has been very successful, soooo I decided to dedicated this page just to the costumes from the six Star Wars films. My original Blog will be for standard costuming, ie Disney, Comics, superheros and others.

Once again, thanks for looking and stand by for more to come!
