Ok, so without further ado, here I am in my swim dress in front of the museum. This is a crummy pic of me with my eyes shut, but good of the dress, lol
Here is a sketch of how the original swim gown was to be. I really like this version, except for the bust area. I do like the use of pink velvet for the sash tho!
This clip shows the gown made as sketched. Be sure to note how the screen version shown in the actual film flows behind Kate. I LOVE that.
And I wanted you to see how mine flows too! There was a replica of the corridor in the museum, with a mirrored wall on both ends. I wanted to run thru there and watch my dress, lol...I *really* felt like Rose in that little area. Corny, I know.
Here are some photos of my dress, tho this is not me. It's the person I bought the gown from, (I assume!)
Photography is not permited on the *ship*. They will however take your photo in front of a blue screen, and then super-impose you onto the staircase, ect. Then of course they want some $$$. I chose not to buy them as I found out you can view them online.
So here they are~ I asked them to take a pic of my back so it would look like I was walking up the stairs, they looked at me like I was nuts but they did it. I think it turned out pretty well!
We couldn't talk the museum folks into letting me take real photos, but we did twist their arm last year. Only thing was, they took the pics and they all came back blury. I was so disapointed! I still bought them tho, I figured it was all I was going to get.
The museum is really neat, and has some great artifacts. I love being able to see part of the ship they built and to walk up the grand staircase. The feeling is breathtaking.
They will have Rose's Jump dress and sinking coat, along with several hats from the film there until December.
If you are interested in Titanic Era gowns, esp. those from the film, this Titanic Dress group is for you. Speaking of Titanic dresses... I love how Rue's wedding gown looks like Rose's *heaven dress*. And she looks gorgeous in it!
