As part of my New Year’s Resolution to challenge myself creatively and historically in costuming, I have taken on what I consider to be one of the Holy Grails in costuming: the portrait of Eleonora di Toledo as painted by Bronzino.
My end date is tentatively scheduled for Dec. of 2012. I will be making the fabric since there is none commercially available, as well as making the accessories, the undergarments and anything else you see in the portrait. I will NOT be making a small boy child as that is going a bit too far for art. I may, however, borrow one.
I hope you follow along with the insanity.
