"Lady of the Green Kirtle"]I always pictured her dress as being very flowing with a lot of layers made of some type of silky material

I pictured her very similar to Lady of the Green Kirtle. So, here's 2 pic I found that I really like.

perhaps the underground dress could be something slightly similar :-\ :D

When I think of a "thin dress" I think it probably has tight long sleeves and a very narrow skirt. The dress has to be poison green of course.

I think that she should have somthing on her head. Like A Garlend of flowers. My choice for a dress would be a flowy green dress that is very beautiful, but looks like somthing a villian would where! :D

I think that LOTGK should have several dresses, similar to how the White Witch was broken into 7 dress changes. Tilda Swinton's 7 dresses are called (according to The Wardrobe Door, you can check) ;) the Turkish Delight, Ice Castle, Sleigh, Smoke, Parley, Deep Magic Regalia and Battle Garb. She progressively turns less and less white; her dresses morph and it's quite interesting.

Anyway, I think LOTGK should be the same type, being especially that she is also supposed to be a Northern Witch like Jadis.

First, for when she kidnaps Rilian (This would be the same as when she's a snake and bites Ramda), she should have a light, kind of shining green (lime maybe), like poison(maybe like this?). I always thought of this dress as thin, a one-piece, kind of because of Lewis's "she was wrapped in a thin green garment". Maybe like Arwen's dream dress? Or else maybe more fitted...I'm not certain.

Second, her next scene would be when she meets Puddleglum and the children during their travels. It should be darker green, not so shiny, but still perhaps kind of flowing. Maybe like this?

And her third scene would be as the Queen of Underland. I'm thinking that there should be several full skirts so that it puffs out in a really intimidating way. Very, very dark green. I'm not sure if it's in the NarniaWeb font colors. When she converts into a snake it could be a darker-colored snake too.

There are some really cool dress ideas posted here! I have always thought that the Lady of the Green Kirtle was one of the best villainesses ever, so I'm really hoping the movie is eventually made!

I'd like to attach a few sketches I've made. They are not perfect by any means, but just some ideas... Sorry for the poor quality! (And the enormous size!)

The dress in the middle represents the dress she wears when wooing Rilian, while the other two are ideas of the underworld dress

WOW! That's pretty much perfect for me Elise! My favourite one is the last on the far right. That looks great for when she's unerground, and the left one is more for when she meets Jill, Eustace and Puddleglum on the road to Harfang.

You should see if you can send those in! They're fantastic!

I always imagined LotGK as having a really lime green dress when she first meets Jill, Eustace, and Puddleglum. Then, when we next see her, her dress is darker, then gets darker until it is a dark emerald color. Then she turns into a snake. A dark green snake. I think that she would have something like the WW did in LWW. Her dress was white when Edmund met her, and it got gradually darker throughout the movie (with the exception of the Aslan's camp scene) until it was black at Aslan's death. My idea is that the Green Witch should have the same thing, except in green shades. Or maybe reverse- starting really dark green and becoming lighter and lighter! :)

HighQueenofNarnia, You and I have pretty close to the same idea! :D

Elise Brewster, awesome sketches!

Here's some elaboration on my idea. What about something like Jadis's ice castle dress, only dark green, for the Underworld scene?

I always thought of her dress for the underworld scene being very tight, and wrapping around her...

I love yours Elise Brewster.

I have a feeling that the top of LOGK dress is going to be seductive when Rilian first meets her.

Along the neckline I can imagine gems to be in snake like green and turquoise patterns. I would love to do a few sketches myself. But it's going to be hard considering she's very seductive.
