I got started on this one really late even though I have been collecting material for it for the past two years. I found the purple fabric for $1/yd two years ago and most to the trimmings are from after Christmas sales. I didn't pay more than $5 for anything on the garment.

Most Queen of the Night costumes are based on Mozart's character from The Magic Flute. But I didn't want to go the way of panniers and such. I used a Vogue pattern as the base and did some changes like the sleeves, and added detail to the folds in the back. The photos aren't very good so you can't see that it wraps to one side, and cascades in fold down the back with the star net fabric spilling out between the folds.

These photos are from the final fitting. I never even got to wear it as I was sick on Halloween night. Well, that gives me a year to make some changes to it. What do you think?

Lovely. What a shame you didn't get to wear it on Halloween. The colour is wonderful.

Thanks!
I figure this gives me to add stuff to it and make a star and moon staff to go with it.
I am trying to figure out how to make the star glow at the end of the staff. Any good ideas?? Huh

What about using one of those little LED tea lights somehow?
