Clothing – Vintage replica “Green Dolphin Street”
Picture as set on Studio E Blog – Draped on Chair
For my friend Elizbeth’s birthday (2013) I made a replica costume. She is creating the “Arthur” and has named it “49 Green Dolphin Street” after her very favorite book. I researched and found some bits of information. I am sharing below some of my findings.
The trick was to find the right coloured material which would drape and properly as a 1/12th scale piece of clothing. You can see the costume draped on a chair on her blog “Studio E”.
“An olive green period dressing gown worn by Lana Turner in the earthquake sequence of Green Dolphin Street (MGM, 1947). The dressing gown has a built-in corset and a detachable black velvet collar with a hand embroidered floral motif and trimmed with lace. A bias label reads “Lana Turner change 18.” Costume design by Walter Plunkett. Accompanied by a copy of the film.
