Ok so i posted some pasties a while back and i'm finally getting around to the rest of the outfit. I guess i'll post it as i complete pieces of it.
General Over view purple side The skirt connects with two snaps and is easily removeable on stage

Flip the Skirt over (It's reversable!!!) I'm also making a matching jacket out of the satin material. So it will be two outfits in one! Sorry about the wrinkles i need to steam it.

Close up of the Bra and Jacket
The Bra is a purple Bra covered in matching purple fabric with crystal beaded trim.

once the skirt comes off i've added a matching shimmy belt 12" peacock fringe (matches the pasties) and Dark purple stretch sequin belt which snaps on.

Feather Headdress Turquoise and Purple Ostrich feathers along with peacock eye and sword feathers (matching purple fabric) this is made from steamed buckram I still need to add the combs to the inside so it holds to my hair.

The Best shoes ever! Blue glitter on top of Black leather mary jane heels. I treated the leather and let it sit over night, then added the glitter the next day. after about a week I covered the shoes in Modge Podge and then a sealant. so the glitter won't go anywhere. 

Tell me what you think! i would love to hear any suggestions!
I'm currently working on the Peacock Tail which will be fan shaped and about 35" wide Smiley I just received 200 eye feathers and 100 sword feathers for it. Smiley

HOLY WOW  Shocked
That is so PRETTY.
Those feathers are absolutely lovely, I don't think I've ever seen ostrich feathers before.
Where do you plan on wearing the outfit to?

So PRETTY!  Gawd, I love sparkles and feathers.  And peacocks and burlesque.  This is basically my dream outfit.

Best episode of 'Cops' ever made:
