I love the Alabama Chanin books and have wanted to incorporate the handiwork into one of my aerial silks leotards.  I think this took about two weeks of me works on it every night and I love it.  I don't really consider it "finished" though because I think, over time, I'll add more beads/sequins here and there.  The handiwork is one on the leotard, I wear separate, plain legging to protect my legs from getting burned.  Also, the stencil is from the first AC book.  (Unfortunately, I can't find any shots of my just standing, not performing, to get a good view of the leotard... meh.)

Update:  August 2, 2011
So, I added on to my costume!  There are some sequin flowers, a dangly trim around the thighs, and some fabric flowers that I also beaded and painted some fabric shimmery stuff on.  Even better than before:

NEW ADDITIONS!




(This was photo shoot from the other day with Holly Himawari, for a SCAD project.)

And if you're interested in the performance I used it for, this past weekend, you can see it here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FV76PERKcQM
