I've been obsessed with the new Cinderella movie (2015) and I want to emulate her magical ball gown.

At first, I wanted to create a modest outfit with a simple classic shape: open neckline, cinched waist and a very puffy and floor-length skirt. It isn't difficult to pick out the pieces that match my determined silhouette. Then I tried to dye all the pieces in a monotone to subdue various unnecessary details. The color turns out to be primarily blue in different shades of purple, turquoise and aquamarine. Next, I took out any redundant accessories as I believe Cinderella's beauty lies in her brilliant simplicity and her dress already speaks volume for itself. Last but not least, I picked out the Aurora Shoes and dyed them in the pales Glint colors for her famous "Glass Slippers".

The main challenge is the dye job. The skirt glows very brightly and changes its color upon different lighting. To match the color of the top and the skirt while making them appear like a one-piece dress requires me to browse through all the existing blue colors. Luckily, there are a lot of Blue shades to choose from and I'm very happy with the result.

Here is the view from the back of the dress when my ele is moving: https://youtu.be/kcrYHwcwWV0

I tried the Aurora chest but I prefer the bare arm option from the Phoenix chest. Also, the neck part of the Aurora chest looks rather busy for what I aim for. I also include the pictures with Kasmeer's hair style which covers the neck more and the dress comes out more stunningly.

I have not seen the movie, yet. So I can't attest to how accurate is it. But, it's a wonderful take on a classic dress. Very elegant without being too gaudy. I can totally see a noble woman (or a street rat with a fairy god mother!) wearing this to an event and being the belle of the ball. Don't loose your slipper, though!
