Fantastic news! I got into the Her Universe Fashion Show at SDCC 2014!

We’ve been asked not to post the design that got chosen, so here: enjoy one of the designs that didn’t make it in.

Of the three I submitted, this was the one I was actually the most excited about. I figured Hannibal probably wasn’t the first thought that came to mind when thinking “geeky fashion”, but I had to do it. Between the costume design/tailoring on the show, art direction, and cast/creative team-fannibal relationship… there was just a LOT to be inspired by. It was also the design I worked the most on: note the Murder Tie, tailoring, use of the Graham tartan, and - of course - flower crown. I was really proud of this, and was certain if I got in at all, this would be the pick.

But alas, it was not to be. Rude.

I’m actually quite happy with the one they did choose, though. Assuming they’re not repeating characters, I’m REALLY thrilled.



I’ve been crazy excited to do Tiana- she’s not my favourite princess, but I started researching her dress in the very early stages of this project and got pretty hyped up about it.

Most of the dresses in Princess and the Frog do have some historical basis (lots of dropped waists and slinky chemises), so I thought it would be fun to tackle Tiana’s magic-kiss-swamp-frog-something gown during the climax of the film. It’s the one dress that’s clearly meant to just be a standalone “princess” dress, but I liked the idea of a challenge and decided to drag it kicking and screaming back into the 20’s.

I based the dress on Lanvin’s robes de style, which were- unlike the flapper dresses most people associate with the Jazz Age- fitted in the bodice with a wide, panniered skirt. The robe de style was considered a relatively conservative dress choice so you probably wouldn’t have seen a hem hiked up this high, but COME ON HOW OFTEN DO I GET TO DRAW THEIR LEGS. Not often enough, I’ll tell you that.
