Princess Irulan’s Butterfly Costume #Dune

irulan costume

Princess Irulan has quite the stocked wardrobe, and Sci-Fi’s Dune miniseries showed off several beautiful dress designs. Cynthia fell in love with the dress covered in butterflies and bookmarked the costume until she got better with her sewing machine. She goes through the process of finding fabric, putting it together, and creating the headpiece on her blog.

The hat was an adventure to figure out. How could I get the shape, and get something that I could transport all the way to DragonCon? Mark came through with the idea. First, we found a souvenir plastic batting helmet. He cut off the brim and shaped it to the front point. I added four long bolts. Then I bought a set of acordian blinds. I cut them to the size I wanted, and slipped the cells over the bolts. Folds up for travel, huge when unfolded. Perfect!
