Wilhelmina Murray - Dracula by FireLilyCosplay Wilhelmina Murray - Dracula by FireLilyCosplay
Photographer: Leonard Jinto
Designer: Eiko Ishioka

This costume was made for Costume Con 27's Historical Masquerade and is a recreation of Wilhelmina Murray's dress from Francis Ford Coppola's 1992 film "Dracula."
I nearly had a meltdown making these two costumes (I also made Prince Vlad), but it was so worth it. They are incredible and I'm so glad I decided to make them!! Plus, I think these are the first recreations of Mina's and Vlad's town outfits that I've seen.

The dress is a boned bodice with false vest front made of silk and taffeta, with hand and machine embroidered leaves on the collar, lapels and cuffs. The skirt is taffeta lined in cotton. The train is three taffeta panels set in waterfall pleats. The hat and petticoat are also made of taffeta. The corset and undergarments are all period correct, including the socks that I dyed green ^.^ I also dyed the leather gloves to a nice emerald green. Shoes are authentic Victorian boots.

Awards: CC27 Co-chair theme award for Mina, "Excellence in Cascade Pleating" award for Workmanship, "Best Period Manners" award for Presentation.

A worthy tribute to one of the best Dracula movies.

You are very welcome. Winona Ryder and Gary Oldman would be very pleased with both of you.
