Did you ever design a gown for a real life Super-Hero?
It’s nerve wracking, isn’t it?
My 6th “Art Gown” goes out to Wendy Anderson who portrays Nealy Gone, a chronic wallflower, who at 50 years old embraces the heat and changes of menopause to become an ass-kicking Super Hero, The Hot Flash
The gown to be was screaming “I’m hot! I’m red! I’m satin!”
So, I went with it, and draped a classic body shape with a modern bodice on Judy.
I used French darts to shape the bodice.
The back was a lot of sexy fun.
Of course in reality the bodice would be heavily corseted.
Both sides of the center front, the French darts and the back’s 3/4 panels would all have to be boned.
Then I needed some fire. As I’m very partial to tails, I decided a spread tail, like fox’s, no point at the end and in red hot sequin eyelash was the way to go. Once the tail was in, I began talking to the gown, calling her my Crimson Fox.
Then I began thinking about mood swings, and the need for the cooling effect of fans, so I began changing things up a bit.
Crimson Fox and I love, love, love “The Hot Flash” and want it to be a Web Series.
