Seraphina Picquery Costume with a Hand-Beading Workaround

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’s Seraphina Picquery has power in the Magical Congress of the USA and an elegant wardrobe. Replica Props Forum (RPF) user ATL Kenobi and his wife teamed up to make a replica of Seraphina’s dress for the Harry Potter celebration that recently happened at Wizarding World Orlando. They found a clever workaround for Seraphina’s gown that I wanted to share. When they started work on the costume, it looked as though the character was wearing a sparkling breastplate — once more hi-res photos came out, they realized it was actually hand-beading. But! Their solution looks great and is passable for beading from a distance. They used sparkling ribbon.

Kenobi cut the ribbon based on a sketch he created of the design on Seraphina’s gown. He made a template, glued that template to the back of the ribbon using stencil adhesive, and then cut around the template. He set the edges of the ribbon with Fray Check to make sure they wouldn’t start feathering. He followed the same process for the gold and blue ribbon. See a couple in progress photos below.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
