River Nymph by nolwen River Nymph by nolwen
My river nymph costume.

This is one of my older costumes, but it's also one of my favourites, so I wanted to show off some more details.

It's all hand beaded around the bodice as well as the around the cuffs.
All the edges were burnt on the corset, skirt and wings, so there was not hemming at all.

Wow... it's so beautiful! I'm really amazed how you managed to keep the design rather "simple" yet so stunning at the same time. The head-set is definitely my favourite part. :heart:

I have to agree. I really love this. It's funny though, because I was just designing some fae type costumes based on flowers and then this pops up! I'd absolutely LOVE to know how you did the wings, and don't forget those fabulous ears you did that one time too XD But I really love this. When I make my "fae" costumes I shall try to aspire to make them just as good :D I only hope I succeed :)

That is so cute!
and the patience it takes to hand sew the beads on! Im really bad at that kind've stuff... but if its a costume Im wanting to workon, i dont mind as much
;D

I just removed a ton of beads from a dress, by hand... Id say, sewing is easier then removing...
