i made these costumes for the dancers, they are supposed to be sprites, and the choreographer said she wanted swirly-twirly skirts, and the in-charge said we had to think of the budget, which is tiny. so in the end i searched through the storeroom of our clubhouse and found huge squares of pink, purple and blue organza with holes cut into the centre of them, and to make a long story short, made 12 halter dresses for the dancers at almost no cost.

the organza was lined with cheap cotton cloth which i also found in the storeroom, white for the pink and blue dresses and black for the purple. here are some of the dancers posing at almost 2 AM in the morning. it took me about 3 days to complete the 12 dresses, with 2 assistants cutting out the patterns i drafted while i sewed them up.

also, i made this ballerina dress and tutu for the life-sized ballerina prop. the tutu took less than an hour to make, and it's 8 layers of tulle, while the top didn't take much of a pattern cos i had to sew it onto the model. i heard it took an entire night and 10 people to make the ballerina out of newspaper papier mache and a stickman skeleton of pvc pipes.

haha and on a lighter side, here's a picture of alexius modelling the trash-bag and newspaper corset-gown i made for a game we were playing, where each team had 2 hours to make a costume and mascot out of 2 trashbags, a stack of newspapers, a little cardboard box, a roll of paper tape and gold and silver markers for decoration. my lovely assistant holly is looking amused in the background, while alexius proudly flaunts his double-Ds made out of newspaper, which he said was incredibly heavy.

needless to say, we won first prize.

Those costumes are so pretty!  I admire your mad theatre skills regarding challenging supplies and budgets.
