1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Brazilian Samba/Showgirl Costume on: April 14, 2013 04:17:23 PM
It's been MANY, MANY years since I posted and I have a lot to share... Cheesy This is a traditional samba costume that i made from scratch.

Headdress features:
wire form base
hand dyed feathers

Bra features:
hand form wire frame

This costume probably took about 40+ hours of sweat, love and lots of rhinestoning.  Grin

I appreciate all feedback, comments, and suggestions for making wire forming easier. Smiley I am completely self taught and am sure there are some tricks i am not aware of.

mine are out there too!

i chose shoes, dress forms, nesting dolls, ostrich feathers, burlesque and probably others i can't remember.

my entire house is a giant burlesque closet so it needs to fit in. Smiley

i'm excited by these lists!! i LOVE the alice theme, i'm in the middle of an lice production right now.  Cheesy some of the nature/tree/firefly ones are cool too!!! i can't wait to see who i get paired with.  Cheesy

ok--I was NOT going to join anymore swaps...but this one is very very tempting...my love is art quilts...I love mixed media on quilts...and I tend to give myself a lot more leeway away from the traditional on art quilts (don't get me wrong, I love making quilts in the traditional way, but art quilts just seem so much "freer"!)...

oh heck...I am going to join in... Cheesy
