Queen Titania

IMG_7935I made the queen to represent water both in winter and summer.  She is supposed to sparkle like ice and waves cracking yet have a cool color.  I think I achieved my goal.  If you notice her dress is different than the other fairies  a square hem line on the shirt tunic.   Yet she has the same type of corset and a similar type of peplum with a wavy edge.

IMG_7933I have made her to look like our old and new fairy costumes combined so that the two on stage make since.   Yet she is different  in that she has coins and beads dangling from her dress and long sleeves I also added her peplum to her corset instead of her tunic.
IMG_7943Her corset is supposed to sparkle a lot on stage when we have the disco ball going and spotlights.

Her skirt is made of lame as is the lining of the tunic.   The tunic overlay is sheer blue fabric with silver painted details on it.
We have three levels of fairies the queen then her consorts the costumes I just made then the servants or peasant fairies which are wearing our old costumes.
This corset caused me considerable grief I never like working with confetti fabric unless the fabric is several years old and the glue totally dried up and not gummy.  I also I made the mistake of using stretch fabric both on the front and back of the corset with interfacing the confetti fabric cannot take the stretch and rips when the corset is  tightened so we have to leave it loose.    When we do this play again in four years I will probably be reworking/remaking this corset.

The wings you see depicted in these photos are owned by the school we have used them in the past.
