So Melinda, you’ve been cast as a princess, and you’ve had your first court meeting. What’s next?
Why a costume of course!
One of the very first things we had to do was design our gowns. Being part of a trio, we had to be very nearly identical.
So after pouring over the costume guidelines, and after a meeting at Joann’s that everyone seemed to be there, we took this blank sketch ( CourtWoman-CostumeSketchTemplate ) and came up with this rough idea, where we each have a different fabric in the same pattern. I chose blue, naturally. The younger sister has a light green because of her red hair, and the older sister has a burgundy red color.
I do have to tell you that the hardest part of designing the dress was what has lovingly been called “the swishy sleeves.” The director wanted a fantasy type sleeve that would identify us as princesses but different than the other princesses.
And now, I want to introduce you to a relatively new Office application called Sway. Why now? Because I made an entire presentation about my dress using this application and I want to show it off. Hope you like it! Click on this link to find the presentation.
