Another fun Miraculous Ladybug piece! If you’re a hardcore Miraculer, you might recognize Marinette’s paper mache dress from her sketchbook in webisode 102. I’m personally not a fan of the webisodes but I really liked the concept of this dress.
Rather than do something traditionally made out of newspaper print, I thought it would be fun to think like Marinette and do something vibrant while making a referential nod to Paris’ days of fashion past. Le Petit Écho de la Mode was a weekly fashion magazine that was published for more than 100 years but sadly ended in 1983. As an tribute, Marinette has taken more than 50 covers from the magazine and fashioned them together as her dress with a light turquoise staining.
I added Tikki for good fun because who doesn’t love Marinette’s Kwami sidekick?
The scene framed in the background is from a picture I took on Rue du Commerce in Paris; a popular shopping and fashion area.
Anywho, thanks for reading and enjoy!
