all lovingly hand made by me! i will let the pictures do the talking and if you have any Qs just ask away....



this is how it all starts



removal of cloak, showing how fabric moves



close up of underwear



full length



how i use the feather bustle to conceal myself



after removal of corset



removing banana skirt



undies


unfortunately there are no pictures of the pasties on me, i think the photographer was boobie shy!

in all i made:

undies (hand dyed and hand decorated bought cotton undies)

banana skirt (using ribon, polystyrene bananas, gold spray and lots of glitter)

feather bustle (using about 5 doubled over feather boas)

corset

pasties

mini crown

enjoy!!!!

BUM!!!

Those bananas have my laughing my own panties off. Wonderful. The whole outfit, of course, but the suggestive use of fruit is the best of the bunch Cheesy.

i just tacked the boas at the halfway point onto a length of ribbon.. i put them about 3 inches apart and used about 5, so they just dangled. i think personally from experience tacking them through the hard ropey bit of the middle works best as this anchors them.. if you try sewing around them without going through the boa can slip and also if you try glue or anything it can get messy as hell xx
