Hello Smiley My friends and I make merch for the burlesque troupe we belong to - we make pasties and facinators/headbands, as well as other things. We usually have a couple "pastie nights" leading up to the shows where we get together and craft for hours while killing off copious amounts of brain cells from the glue fumes. Its a lot of fun, and makes some fun money for the troupe Smiley

I thought i'd share a some of the pieces i've made. we rarely get pictures since we're usually too tired by the time we're done, but for the last show i made a point of getting pictures of at least some of the stuff Cheesy

Here are some pasties (all pretty simple):





and facinators (we use vintage costume jewelry in most of the pieces):







I have more on my website, but those are some of my favorites. we also make much more elaborate pasties and headresses for our acts, which i'll post a few of when i dig out the costumes Smiley wotcha think?

Those headpieces are so awesome! I need to stop being lazy and make one half as awesome.

thanks!! they're a lot of fun to make (and even more fun to shop for, i love digging through costume jewelry at vintage shops).

Here is a costume shot from the last show, showing one of the larger headdresses. I'll post some more detailed photos eventually Smiley

It's not a matter of size, but a matter of heart.

I especially like the first two headpieces and the last one. I LOVE the skull! I wish I could have one like that, but in pink! Grin Grin

Your headbands are gorgeous!  I think I might need to make something similar.  I love your costumes too.  Did your troupe make those as well?

thank you Smiley some of the costumes bits i made, but a lot of it i either had made or ordered online. in my costume, i made the bra (recycled from my Amber Sweet costume) and the skirt/bustle thing, as well as the headdress and i highly modified the wig (sewed in lots of hair). the corset i had made (we each had one made in a different colour) and we each bought vertically stripped tights to match the corsets (i friggin LOVE these tights!!)


On the boyfriend: I had his pants made (same awesome lady that made his Goblin King costume), got the tailcoat on ebay, and the rest i picked up at vintage clothing sales (except the fingerless gloves and cummerbund, which are both new). he made his fire pasties, but unfortunately you can't see them in the photo. i do have a picture of their inaugural burn though Cheesy

Does that mean you guys did a Repo! The Genetic Opera themed show, because if so, that's pretty sweet.  I went to a shadow cast of it, but couldn't see or hear anything due to the venue layout.

Love the tights.

Those fire pasties look like they could take someone out of the picture.
