Azkaban Will Eat You. by cupcake-rufflebutt Azkaban Will Eat You. by cupcake-rufflebutt
Myself as Bellatrix Lestrange from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Photo taken with self-timer in October 2007. This was my second serious attempt at recreating a movie costume [Corpse Bride being my first], and I have to say that it was an interesting experience! Recreating an existing costume is an entirely different ballgame than basing a costume off of a piece of manga, anime, or game artwork. The corset consists of about 12 pieces of leather, all hand-sewn together with leather cording [MY HANDS ;__;], the dress and mitts are hand-weathered and hand-painted, and the necklace is also handmade. You can't see any of them in this shot, but over 70 grommets were hammered into this by hand [the mitts and corset lace on]. I didn't know of the existence of grommeting tools at the time, and my goodness, I could have saved myself a good 2-3 hours! The only downside to this photo of the costume is that I was not wearing my "Bellatrix makeup" at the time. I normally am much more liberal in my application of eyeliner and lipstick when I wear her!

Please no critiques/criticism. I'd like to keep this gallery happy! <3

Azkaban Will Eat You. by ~cupcake-rufflebutt. ~cupcake-rufflebutt has created a darned good hand-sewn recreation of Bellatrix Lestrange's dress and accessories. A good browse through her gallery and you'll see why she was suggested by many people. ( Suggested by Ex-Shadow and Featured by Kitten-of-Woe )

I have plans to wear it in the future, so I've no intention to sell at the moment.
