I am super grateful to the folks who joined me this fall/winter in being my models/co-creators/willing superheroes to showcase my skills as a designer.

This year, the nature of my “collection” is more “adventures”– #TAVCreationsAngels Assemble !
Each week I plan to focus on one of these amazing people and the character and creation we produced !
Today, let’s talk about Zombie Dragon Girl!! The juxtaposition of this superhero: a Darkness that gives Light in creativity and movement.
Zombie Dragon Girl had a clear vision of what her gown could be and the pieces all came together -from two separate donated gowns, a TAV Creations purse created in the 90’s, a sample veil that worked perfectly to enhance her distinct hair style!
Starting from a sketch that gave me the direction to head in, I had assembled the elements for our first meeting, and we kept just raving at how it could all work together!
RE-Design and melding of Wedding gowns
Zombie Dragon Girl’s Regency inspired silk gown was created by taking 2 wedding gowns , resizing, redesigning and reassembling to create this new piece.
The original silk gown, shown here, had full length set in sleeves, a “v” neckline in front and a lower waist line.
It was recut to remove any unsightly stains, the sleeves made into a new fun style, the skirt regathered into a more back waist emphasis. The train was reshaped to match the lace overskirt that was added.
The lace overskirt also offered up some appliqués to add to the donated veil to make it a fun matching headpiece
- Donated silk dress
- Donated lace on tulle overskirt
Veil redesign –
- Donated veil
The bonus of working with this TAV Creations Angel/ superhero, was that she came with a sidekick – The White-icorn! 🙂
