It's Project Project Runway Challenge Number 2 results day!
Our challenge this week was:
Challenge – A Night at the Opera
This week is all about high-end glamour. It’s time to show us a
show-stopping ball gown for a high-society event. The look needs to be
classic, elegant, but still turn heads. It should look couture. The
designers on the show had $350 to spend this week, so let’s stay under
$35 (as if any of us will spend $35). (Courtesy of Just Crafty Enough)
Here we go!
Ariel was chosen to model this particular Opera ensemble (mostly because she's the least skanky of my models hehehe).
I got the fabric from the Thrift Store. It was actually sandwiched in between some really nice blue knits in a bag that I bought for $3.00. I had no idea what I would possibly use it for - until this challenge!
I made it as form fitting as possible, with one long sleeve. The judges really went for the sexy, yet modest look, so I think this fits in well.
Ariel has some crazy sparkly gold eye shadow and hot pink lips, but I still think this dress makes her look elegant. And I congratulate myself for making the design more streamlined. I had ideas for bustles and high collars... ooof... I'm glad I went with the simple yet elegant look.
I made a little fan for Ariel's hair accessory. Perfect for the Opera! Well maybe. I've never actually been to the Opera.
I chose this clutch from the accessory wall to go with her ensemble. I think it matches the fan in her hair quite nicely.
