Wednesday Weekly Wishlist: Luna Lovegood's Christmas Tree Dress

I have FINALLY seen Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009). The special edition DVD was amongst my many gifts (thank you Aunt M.) and watching it bonus features and all was all I did on boxing day. I waited until today to mention this because I wanted to add Luna Lovegood's Christmas Tree Dress to my Wishlist.

It is really quirky, just like Luna, and yet it's absolutely adorable. Besides, with my natural blond locks, my choice of Ravenclaw as my House, I often say that I am Luna when I cosplay as a Hogwarts student. Add to that the slimming factor of layers and you know I'm bound to love it!

Looking around the net, I've been able to find a few good pictures of this dress. The following one shows in detail the neckline frill, which makes it look very vintagey to me, as well as the rhinestones on the fabric, which I hadn't noticed before, and the earrings.

I also found the next one on Cinereplica ("Cinereplicas in the Harry Potter's train!"). It is a picture of the actual dress seen on display.

It is upon seeing that picture that I realized the dress was actually purple. I honestly thought it was silver. I can also say that I believe the outer layer to be made of Organza.

Now the only thing I couldn't find a picture of is the bracelet. In the Making-Of video where Evanna Lynch sits down with Costume Designer Jany Temine, they talk about it and they even show it to us. Apparently, Evanna made the beaded jewelry that Luna wears on screen. For the bracelet, she made a little rabbit, as that is the shape of Luna's Patronus.

Haven't seen that video? That's all right, I found it for you on YouTube.

I do love making costumes from the Harry Potter Movies. Expect to see quite a few more appear on my Wishlist in the future.
