Favorite Things Friday – Week 18 – Costumes for Reign

I’ve recently started watching Reign again starting at the beginning of Series 1 because I missed quite a bit and wanted to catch up properly. It’s a great historical drama, with lots of intrigue and action as well as plenty of romance.

And the costumes are AMAZING!!!!

See what I mean…

So much detail is put into each costume, giving the ladies each their own style, but still looking cohesive!

Even the cloaks for the outdoor scenes are fabulous… Can someone buy/make me the blue one? 😉

I loved the costumes soooo much, I decided to start creating my own versions on Polyvore. It’s a great site with access to images of loads of clothes, shoes, jewellery, etc that you can put together to create outfits. With many styles and colour options available, the number of combinations you can put together is astronomical!

I’ve been a member on Polyvore for about 6 years now, and I still love going on every now and then and creating different outfits. Recently I started creating outfits based on different films/music videos, and now Reign.

Here are the costumes I’ve put together so far:

Queen of Scots

I started off with Mary, Queen of Scotland, played by Adelaide Kane.

Long May She Reign

Creating looks I thought were fit for a young Queen.

Born To Wear A Crown

And of course, I had to include a tiara!

Then I went on to her Ladies in Waiting…

Then I did a couple for Lady Kenna, played by Caitlin Stacey…

Lady Kenna

She always wears things that are a bit floaty and very girly.

I haven’t made any for Lady Greer, Celina Sinden, yet but I’m sure I will in the next few days.

If you want to see these outfits in more detail (including where to find the items in each) as well as the other outfits I have created over the past six years, you can find them on my Polyvore profile – Cathtantya.

I thought I would leave you with one last look at the actual costumes from Reign, so here you go….
