How do I recreate this skirt? Answered

I want to recreate the skirt in Nightwish's 'Bye Bye Beautiful'- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pckMm9k7cJw-worn by the lead singer. However, I'm having trouble recreating it. The fabric seems to be mostly denim, but I can't really figure out the materials to decorate it with. I'm not really sure if it's paint, applique, or a combination. Any tips?

Thanks for any tips!

it looks like a combination of pieces from embroidered pillows, drapes, or similar that have been sewn on, plus a few appliqued rhinestones/etc. Girls in my High school used to do a lot of that when I was a teenager back in the 1970s.

My guess is its embroidered + applique.
