Showing some love for The Twilight Costume Collection!
How is the jacket the girl playing "Bella" here so light? Is that the new BB Dakota jacket??? I need to know!
Hi Brittcs,That's Hilly Hindy from The Hillywood Show's Twilight Parody. From what I can tell, the BB Dakota jacket used in the film was not the LAKE BLUE color that is so popular with Twilight fans. I own the INKWORKS Costume swatch set, and the color is a very pale blue, bordering on grey. The actual jacket either started out darker and was distressed to release the dye or it was a lighter colored jacket dyed to achieve the proper color that was needed. The problem is that the jacket is built from both 100% cotton and 100% polyester. If you don't know, Polyester is nearly impossible to dye. For Hilly Hindy's jacket that she's wearing in that photo, I customized the same BB DAKOTA LEIGH CARGO HOODIE (not the replica that's out now) to be the exact shame color as the one worn by Kristen Stewart. Here is a great picture showing the true color of one of the film used coats. It's a tad darker than it would be in person, as Robert's peacoat isn't that dark:http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_GIchwvJ-aNk/SlUbAGkV6hI/AAAAAAAAI7c/9SOgYIl9cyk/s800/Bella+and+Edward+Twilight+movie+costumes.jpg
Is there any way to get the jacket in that lighter blue color? Can you make another? I'm guessing you got the "silver birch"/"beige" one and dyed it with a blue?
I'm curious as well, on the process you went through to get the jacket that color. It looks great.
