So for halloween this year my roommate and I have decided to throw a killer party and go all out. After debating on costumes I've decided Leeloo from the fifth element and my boyfriend as corban dallas. I thought it'd be a cute and slightly original couples costume. I wanna do the costumes from when they're getting on the ship ("Leeloo Dallas multipass").http://www.johntedwards.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/07/fifthelement15_1.jpg
I figure my Corban's outfit will be relatively easy, black pants with a orange shirt and hopefully with a bit of thrifting I can find a similar coat which I can then alter. Although I'm ok with showing a bit I'm not a huge fan of slutty costumes so the shirt will most likely be longer, but that's an easy find. Then I figured I'd just get some gold leggings and paint on stripes and add a belt. Now the one I'm having real trouble with is the suspenders. Ideas so far include wide elastic dyed and sewn, vinyl, or just plain wide ribbon. I don't want anything that's gonna cause some cammel toe action when I move but I don't want it to be too baggy.
I figure once I get it all figured out it'll be a relatively easy costume but I need a little help with ideas.http://www.1956packardpanther.com/Leeloo_Mila_Jovovich2.jpghttp://api.ning.com/files/thJ236gDjZ9juVgZezMFGCItSYUOZsEfjBO9XvWMGp4_/multipass1.jpg
