At The Gala by residentexorcist At The Gala by residentexorcist
Twilight Sparkle in her Grand Galloping Gala Dress.
Original Design done by me.
Taken at BroNYcon 2012 by Erisaka Blu

This is the first dress in my Gala Project. Twilight is my personal favorite pony since we share so many of the same traits. So I thought it only appropriate to start with her.

I went for a modern Hollywood glam kind of look. I also pulled from Rarity's description of the dress:

"Twilight's dress, cutting out the pattern snip by snip
Making sure the fabric folds nicely
It's the perfect color and so hip..."

This style of the short in the front and long in the back has been very popular this season and I wanted to make sure it draped in such a way that it flowed when I walked.

Oh ponies. <3

I had walked by you during the con. I remember specifically. You and a 'Shinning Armor' Cosplayer.
I wanted to ask if you had a deviant art but you two seemed into your photography at that point and time, so i couldn't. I'm so glad i just stumbled upon this.
Breath taking :heart:

What fabric did you use for the bodice? Personally, I would pick a crisper fabric, something with some stifness. As is the edges look a bit rolled over and such. Also, did you use any boning or stucture in the bodice? I'd also like to know what the fabric for the skirt was. I looks lke it drapes like satin, but it doesnt have that datin finish, so I cant be sure. And the edges of the skirt look a bit unfinished and jagged. Over all though, its a lovely design and very modest.

The bodice and skirting are a casa. Steel boning is in the bodice and it is a three tiered top, lined, medium stiffener, and the casa. Sadly, casa is not a high quality fabric, though I had to work with what I had. The edges are not rolling. They are trimmed. As for the bodice puckering, just how it fitted on me and I had no time to adjust it. (the dress was constructed in about 4 days) The edges are finished and clean (I would not wear a garment that wasn't finished and I know you did not mean it, but it comes of as mildly insulting), though from walking around and dragging on the ground and people stepping on it multiple times., the skirting took quite the beating. (this was much later in the day so, it wasn't at its best)

Thank you for the feedback.

I ment nothing by it, I was just observing what I saw in the picture. Pardon me if I did insult you, even in the slightest. I've never heard of the fabric Casa. Is it fairly inexpensive. It looks very soft and versitile.
