What materials did you use? I used drapery fabric for the robe, and brocade for the tunic. Heavy iron-on interfacing stiffens the hat. A purchased wig, beard and wand complete the look.

What are you most proud of? That my sweetheart was willing to go along with this!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give yourself plenty of time, and a big budget- the robe takes lots of fabric! Choose your costume to reflect what you want. Remember, 2 different actors portrayed our favorite headmaster, and each dressed quite differently. Mine is mostly Richard Harris, with the bow on the beard from Michael Gambon's portrayal.

I love the silver fabric you chose. It really bring the design to life. AND... Mozart is the CUTEST little doggie! You must get compliments on him all the time. :-)

The red is actually drapery fabric that I had, and the silver a brocade we chose to go with it. Thanks for your kind comments on both the costume and the dog! He is as sweet as he is cute!
