Abstract

Celtic Nightshade blends various inspirations such as: Irish fairy folklore, magical herbalism, and spirituality into elegant eveningwear. 3D printing technology was used to create the garment's embellishments that were combined with hand embroidery. The main objective of this garment was to investigate the use of 3d printing for embellishments. This usage of 3D printing technology provides knowledge related to the integration of custom 3D printed embellishments created via an additive process that produces minimal waste. Fairies of traditional folklore in Ireland are known as the Sidhe. These spirits are not the whimsical creatures associated with children's movies. Ancient stories of the Sidhe were used as cautionary tales to keep people from straying too far from villages or homes. While some fairies were known to bestow good luck, most were interested in enslaving or mating with humans. This dress was beaded with 100 embellishments and 82% of them were 3D printed.
