Fantastic retrofantasy style and where to find it? You’ve apparated to the right spot. Wizarding World inspired custom bridal fashion is here. Imágemária’s Invisibility Bridal Cape is one I conceived as an invisibility cloak per J. K. Rowling with 1920’s glam embellishment, inspired by the era of Fantastic Beasts. Laced with a bit of Alphonse Mucha, the Wizarding World looks glamorously bohemian. (Bonus Mucha design if I’m photographing you.)
The cape can be ordered in one of two fabrics: silver lamé, which gives the metallic silvery effect we envisioned while reading about the cape’s first appearance in The Sorcerer’s Stone… or silver tulle, which gives a more bridal veil effect, frosty and elegantly see-through. Discover here how I designed this piece.

Tulle hooded variation:
Portrait magic is complimentary for my portrait clients.
Lamé cape variation:
This cape is amazingly lightweight and billows beautifully in the breeze! Gorgeous profile! The lamé is transparent when opened up or positioned in front of bright backgrounds. The tulle is much more see-through in all situations.
Making of The Invisibility Bridal Cape
I’ve always wanted to design a sweeping cape. There will be more after this one! My original design was an off-shoulder cape topped with a neckline dictated by the organic floral layout of this silver embroidered lace. Hidden hook closure at the sternum, an almost hidden Deathly Hallows symbol dripping off the back.I had never worked with lamé prior to this project. A word of note: you can’t iron it! Lamé is a nylon/polyester blend with strips of metallic fabric woven throughout. It wipes off well with steam, but steam doesn’t take out all the wrinkles well… you just have to be very careful not to crease it. (Not true of tulle, which both steams and irons well, so if you’re worried about wrinkling, go with the tulle.)Cape top yoke design. This silver embroidered lace is one of the most gorgeous things! All of these bits were hand trimmed from the fabric, and assembled carefully to create the neckline shapes and cape bottom trim. Handful of magic!The back piece (yoke). I love organically imperfect design. This floral drip is so fancy. The hem trim, yoke and shoulder lace is all hand-stitched. Finished! You can purchase this cape and customize it as you like, made to order, from my Etsy shop.
