So, I've worked with this community based performance art group I co-founded for 11years now, and have gotten pretty good at a few very esoteric things. I can bang out water ballet costumes super fast, figure out what is doable in roller skates & stretch a buck awful far. For non-water based shows we use a lotta reconned thrift store stuff, but in the water that's a little impossible. Many directors/ costumers order unitards & trick them out, but for my Siren ladies this year I worked from scratch, with no pattern & very few measurements. Considering the time & money constraints I think they turned out cute!
These gals played Sirens in our campy version of Jason & the Argonauts. More info about the group can be found here: www.fluidmovement.org
. I went with a different kind of Siren/ mermaid, splitting them in half vertically instead of horizontally. It looked great with some of our water choreography.
Sorry for sideways photo, this is my first post after years of lurking.
