Whatever your opinion of the substance of the Snow White and the Huntsman films, it’s hard to ignore the quality of the costumes. The overall production design is beautiful, actually, but the costumes in particular stand out — especially the dresses worn by Ravenna, the Evil Queen in this story. Beverly Downen of Downen Creative Studios channeled the character with her epic build of Ravenna’s golden dress.
Beverly debuted the dress, which took hundreds of hours of work, at Rose City Comic Con. She says:
There’s 2500 individually painted gold lame` feathers that comprise this cape. I disagree. It’s got to be over 3000. Yes, each feather handmade and hand-painted.
The cape was so well done that a graphic artist from The Huntsman: Winter’s War praised her efforts in crafting a cape based on something that was strictly CGI in the film.
