Marie Antoinette Costume

We brought home a Marie Antoinette style dress from Jacqadi in Paris earlier this year for Amelia in homage to our Versailles visit. I’ve been wanting to make her a white baroque wig to go with it every since.

I initially tried a version with fabric and batting but ended up going with paper, inspired by the insanely ornate and intricate paper wigs by Asya Kozina (swoon!). My friend Brittany of the house that lars built also made one for a few years back that we love as well!

   

It’s fun introducing Amelia to new characters and she’s been going around telling people she’s “Monette” – her simplified version of Marie Antoinette. Cutest ever really.
