I made this as my first outfit for Burning Man. I'm a brazillian samba dancer so its inspired by that. I made it out of horribly ugly stuff too. It cost just under 10 bucks. It was very easy to make. Just sewed the ruffles on a strip of fabric to make a skirt and for the shirt I cut out the middle and added the gold.

first the hideous original pieces:
90's leotard w/ gold sparkles:
uglier than ugly skirt:
close up:
this pic sucks but its a polka dot button up blouse:

And the final product:

skirt:
back of shirt:

Sorry for all the pics.

I think you accomplished the making of something cool out of something(s) ugly. I like the tiered effect on the skirt! Smiley

That outfit is totally neat. I especially love the vertical line in the shirt -- it's like an arrows to the tattoos, it's great!

H-h-h-h-hottttt!!!!

I saw the pics of that outfit in the photo gallery and was wondering where they were posted!  That outfit is so great, and I agree, you get props for starting out with some nasty stuff!  (those leotard shirt things are so ugh).

I've been meaning to start capoeira too, there's a place about 15 min. from me, but I haven't had time to go because of school.  Thanks for reminding me to stop making excuses and just go!
