Elizabeth's plum dress
Elizabeth is given this dress (and the shift that goes under it) by Captain Barbossa while she's aboard the Black Pearl. This is my favorite of her actual dresses-- the gold dress and the peach dress are both beautiful, but she doesn't get to be pirate-y while she's wearing them.

I'd been planning to make this dress for years, and I finally made it, along with the shift, for the Masquerade at San Diego Comic-Con 2006. Our group-- six of us from 2005's Big Damn Heroes, plus three new folks-- called ourselves the PDQ Pirates, and we presented the entire plot of the first POTC movie in just under three minutes. We had so much fun with the skit, and we ended up winning Best Presentation, which was a total thrill! There's a video of our skit on YouTube here. Hopefully we'll have a page for our group up soon, with pictures and more video!
