I really enjoy fairy tales. Especially Grimm's tale "Snow White".
So I was most pleased when I heard about the up coming "Snow White and the Huntsman"... with costumes designed by Colleen Atwood.
Because the movie is not yet out, I simply based my inspiration off of the images I grabbed from the trailer.
Here are the pictures I used as guidelines for the version below...
As you can see the costume starts out long...as in this moving shot.So I decided to go with the long linen dress length... The red on the movie costume is much brighter then it appears here.
The costume I made here is constructed out of organic linens and silk.
The under dress is almost an ice blue color with 100% silk lacing up the sleeves and hand made trim. Neckline also features a medieval style neckline construction.
The ornate sleeves are lined with red apple hued silk and accented with bronze lead studs. Long lined lined silk strips create that classic fairytale look.
Bodice of the over dress is fully boned and laced up the front with a shimmery bronze braid that is reminiscent of a chain.
Here are few more detailed shots.....just to give an idea. The hem of the gowns are raw and rugged. As though it has been ripped.
The neckline of the underdress bodice is accented with hand made lace in a light blue.
As with all my costumes everything is "inspired by the movie" I do not claim to have everything identical of the original. I just try to capture the "feel" of the movie costume. :)

Thanks for looking at my costumes!
P.S. This costume will be available for a custom order for Hallow's Eve or other events.
So if you are interested shoot me an e-mail for details. If you are looking for the Huntsman or Queen's costume I can recreate those looks as well....
