Cinderella- Designing evil stepmother..

The evil stepmother was pretty fun to design. I wanted to create a costume that clearly showed opulence and presence. The evil stepmother (in my version of Cinderella) is an over the top powerful woman that shows characteristics of "more is more," she has a great mixture of renaissance period and medieval combined to look more avant-garde. Not only does she have fur sleeves and a fur collar, but she has a brocade fabric, and a restricting renaissance starched style collar, along with a heavy uncomfortable headpiece. She has embellishments everywhere, and she is so concerned about looks and appearing "higher class," wearing uncomfortable and constricting clothing is not an issue.

stay tuned for Cinderella's transformation gowns...
