A Costuming Blog



Costume Blogs:



Welcome to the Door in the Sky! This is your portal to the world of costuming, or at least the costumes I sew. Here you'll find the latest news and updates of what I've been up to on the sewing machine recently.

Currently, I am working on making a reproduction of the Purple Dress that Susan Pevensie wears in the latest Chronicles of Narnia movie, Prince Caspian ,and Prince Caspian's Coronation Outfit from the same movie for my dad. You can find out more about it by clicking on the link in the sidebar.

But I have plenty more costumes planned! And here's a list of the ones I have thought up and the year in which I intend to make them.

  • A simple Lucy costume for the PC premier? I may be helping to make one for my little sister
  • Costume for the HP 6 (Half-Blood Prince) premier in November 2008 (I may throw this one together from thrift store offerings)
  • A new (more accurate) Renaissance costume which I would like to make over the summer of 2009

So this is my latest costuming enterprise, just recently taken on with the release of new pictures that feature this costume. Since I am in the middle of sewing a replica of Susan's Purple dress, I don't have time to actually sew this for my dad. Instead, I'm going to put it together from thrift store finds and what he already has. First off, he'll wear his darkest khakis, and I hope to find an olive green shirt and an oversized cream shirt to go over it all. . . . read more

A NEW PICTURE!!! *gasps for breath* Alright, now that I've got that off of my chest, I'd better back up and explain. First off, over the weekend I got the preliminary step of modifying the sleeve pattern done. Basically I cut the pattern out of paper which I'm then going to twist into the coat sleeve shape and then cut out again. Here's pics of it. . . . read more
