This is a bit late in coming, but I thought it was better to post late than never.
Every year, my homeschool group does an event called "History Night" where homeschool students can choose a topic in history and make a presentation about it. Then, on the actual History *Night* we present our projects to the world! (or at least to those who come... lol)
This year I chose to do the Last Tsar of Russia, Tsar Nicholas Romanov II. Of course, it would be very weird to dress up as Nicholas the II, so I chose to dress up as his daughter instead... Tatiana Romanov.
I wore my mom's prom dress (the same one I wore to the Homeschool Banquet last year) and added a red ribbon sash. For the headress, I created the basic shape of the kokoshnik (crown) out of cardboard (a cereal box, to be specific) and added pearls along the top of it, and a tulle veil in the back. To finish it off I added a black necklace (Which has multiple chains) and a long chain.
My Costume was based on this picture of Olga (left) and Tatiana Romanov. Although there are differences between my costume and their clothes, I think I got the general feel of the costume.
