1770's The Ghost of Versailles

This is one of the costumes from the Opera The Ghost Of Versailles. 

This is exceptionally dramatic and bold costume designed and constructed to be viewed from 100 or more metres aways. All fabrics were chosen for there transparent qualities, layered and dyed to exist within a monochromatic palette. The Concept behind this opulent lady is that met her fate in a clock tower the ghost is over run with spiders and webs. She has a very industrial  hard metal aesthetic inspired by the beautiful machinery of the clock towers from the period.
