When Willie Scott makes her entrance in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, she’s wearing a gown covered in sequins and beads. Major Sam Cosplay studied the dress and has spent the last six months creating it by hand to wear at San Diego Comic-Con. She’s strung all the beads and sequins by hand — which is hard to imagine — and applied them to the “Anything Goes” dress, mostly by sewing without a machine. She put the fabric panels in a frame to ensure they were as flat as possible before she attached the sequins and beads. You can get an idea of the level of details and the tedious amount of work by looking at the below photos.
