A photoset showing how one of the original red Stockholm Elissa skirts were dramatically pimped up in Copenhagen.
They kept the main red skirt, but added the decorations under the existing patterned hem. I believe the gold couched green backdrape was kept as it was. The green tabs was also kept, but seriously pimped up with sequin trims, gems and appliqués. They eventually also got a thicker gold fringe.
What the costume got new was a satin apron with brooches, and a new false bodice. The hem was of course also new. And since the revamped skirt was a lot larger (made for one of the tallest Christines in the world, after all), they gave it a bigger underskirt and added more tabs to it, to make everything a bit grander.
But in these photos you can see that the basic is the same. To the left, Elisabeth Berg’s costume in Stockholm, to the right Susanne Elmark’s costume in Copenhagen.
This is what will happen when I buy the Walt Disney company and The Really Useful Group and get a bunch of professional animators to obey my every whim.
