Post My Attempt at Marie Antoinette costume.
I'm no seamstress or hairstylist, but I'd like to try....but I am an artist so that will take me far enough. I hope you like....

My home made hand fan. I bought the frame, but everything else I made...including cutting out the paper, painting, hand painting details, jewels, etc. The portraits are all prints.

The hair I did the 18th century way.... I went out and bought a wig, chicken wires for the cage, and I layered the wigs hair over the cage until the entire hardware is covered, and I add in clip on extensions, rolled them up, and pinned them in. The accessories was the fun part, I did put the ship in before the hair went on the chicken wire cage. Then afterwards, added my own hair from the front to make it look like its all mine, and curled my hair that I left hanging out in the back.

The corset I did buy, I'm not going to lie, but everything after that I made. The layered lace front, the polonaise back of my dress, and including the blue lace dress panier inside the dress! Wish I could've done a longer one, but that would've cost me $$$$ than what I already spent. Outcome was great, I did win $$$ prize for the costume. Paid off half of what I spent on it.
