Westworld Dolores Costume Looks Like More Than Nothing to Me
The breakout character of HBO’s Westworld was Dolores. The host had a strong presence in the series, and Kelldar made a quick version of her costume for fun. She used a McCall’s pattern for the bodice and found a blue cotton to make the dress from. She conceded that the fabric wasn’t as authentic as it could have been, but that it is super comfortable. She made the entire dress and the belt. Regarding the belt, she says:
Thankfully the belt was easy enough to track down since they used a Tandy kit on the original! Picked that up along with some antique gel. Chase made my belt buckle for me based around an existing plain square buckle. I made the pouch out of some leftover leather and we dyed it to match.
You can see a photo showing off the belt dyeing process below.
